Who reloads?

So who reloads and what with?

I use a 650 with brass feeder and have loaded several 100,000 rounds with it without a problem. I very quickly got fed up with primers though, so did pick up a primer filler.

I mainly reload .38Super, but also 9x19 and 9x23.

I don't....I think some of the auto pistols on the market can be a bit finnicky, and I feel reloads will just make them less reliable.

I've reloaded around 500k rounds of handgun ammo, and apart from one light load (my fault), have never had a single issue. I've seen plenty of people who have had issues with reloads though, but in just about every case, after looking at their ammo, I could see why. Sloppy reloads = sloppy performance.

I used to reload shotgun shells back when I used to spend a lot of time shooting clays.

Now I'm married, have a kid and work too much. Not enough time for wheeling and shooting.

I reload 20ga and 12ga trap and skeet loads. Haven't really been active in a while. Don't shoot the leagues anymore.

Also load rifle ammo. (.300WSM, .300 Savage, 30-30 Win. etc.) Use an RCBS rock chucker. Only load about 4 times a year. Does save some money since I'll shoot 100+ .300WSM rounds every trip to the range...

I'm with you there. I also throw the powder charges with a powder measure, and top it off with a dribbler, every charge weighed. I measure and trim case length on every round.

Adds some time, but I enjoy the process...

Ok, so I'm gonna revive a thread from the past.

I reloaded a few rounds (literally, a few rounds... probably no more than a couple dozen) of .30-30 and 7mm Rem Mag back in 1994/5 before I joined the AF with a friends reloading setup.

I'm now trying to get back into the hunting game and trying to get my 9 year old involved. Looking to get him his first gun, which'll probably be a Rossi Trifecta (.410, .22LR, and .243) and I want to get into the reloading thing, too.

Someone tell me, how much is a good start up reloading setup gonna run me? What all do I "need" to do it? What are the optional equipments that I am GONNA want to have?

Not sure what a basic setup will run now days, but between my father and I we spent I think $600.

We got all rcbs equip. which included:

press
case trimmer
primer loader
primer pocket cleaning tool
case deburring tool
brass cleaner/ tumbler with media
oal guage (and cases for our specific calibers)
reloading dies .270 .308(top of the line micro seater) .22-.250 7mm STW
powder scale
powder trickler
powder feeder
and prob. a few things I missed.

After that you will need
Brass
Bullets
Primers
Powder
reloading manuals
http://www.midwayusa.com/ has been pretty good for everything reloading over the years.

Thanks, guinness. I thought you were a diehard anti-gun person, though.

Eh, I'm just kidding. I know better, but I felt like using the black text here.

I'll look into that when I'm ready to setup a reloading station.

I use to hate it, but since I listenend to a little advice- no more neck sizing or neck turning, it is fun again. Full length sizing, trim, prime, charge, and spin the bullet and top the cartridge then shoot it! Life is so much better and no more fliers!

I load 223, 308 both sub and hyper,308 MX, 300 WM, 7MM STW, 45/70 as for shorties 357, 45 acp, 44 mag.

I don't weigh each charge anymore just when I get out of sync or every 10th or 15 throw if I being consisitant. The same guy who got me to quit doing all that other stuff told me I didn't need to weigh every charge. His logic made alot of sense and so far he has been right in my case.

Dillon 550

Only handgun ammo now

.45ACP, 38/357, .40, .380

Relatively new to it, right around 3000 rnds. Aside from some minor issues (one batch the crimp die backed out a bit and 1 no powder load (not good)) I haven't had any feeding problems in any of my pistols.

Getting ready to invest in rifle dies. 30-06, 30-30, .223 (in that order)
