Most if not all semi auto mfgrs say that shooting reloads will void your warranty.
That said, except for my 22 I reload every thing I shoot. 9mm, 38 spec, 357 mag, 40S&W, 45 ACP and 45 Colt.

Properly cleaning and inspecting the cases before loading, then paying close attention to weights, length and crimp are the key. Done right, reloads are as good and in some cases better than factory.
Reloading your own lets you adjust powder charge and bullet weight to suit you.
Heck yes invest in reloading equipt and go for it. There are several books available to teach you the dos and don’ts.
ABCs of Reloading is pretty darn good.

As I type this, I am cleaning brass to reload later this afternoon.

Good to know that about the warranty. Hadn’t even considered it.
