Dan, I worked for many years in Manufacturing and Product Test Engineering. Even with all my best effort to control the consistency of the dozen or so that I've made, no two turned out exactly the same. The up front cost to make tooling that manufactures them consistently, would take a lifetime recovering the cost from onesy twosy sales on Ebay, at a price that would move product. That's just one challenge. My experience has also been that no two people who reload are the same. While a more experienced person might get excellent results, the less experienced person might struggle and that can lead to costs due to returns from unsatisfied customers. People are not bashful about voicing their displeasure on Ebay, even when a refund comes to them. Bad feedback from even a few customers, can overshadow sales to many satisfied ones. Then there's the liability from some cowboy blowing up his overloaded rounds. The list of drawbacks goes on.
Reloading walks a fine line between art and science. My experience has been that science is the greater variable than the art part of it. Reliance upon powder and primer performance as if its gospel, while reloading at or near the top of the safety window, is going to catch up with even the most fastidious person and not every reloader bothers to spend more time turning pages and reading as they do pulling on that press handle.
