    I shoot .22 the most because of price, next is .40 because I reload it and 3rd is .223 because I have so much of it.(plus with a 30 round magazine it goes quicker than the other rounds lol)

    Does reloading .40 pay off?

    lately it has been only .22
    suprisingly fun and when you have enough variety in the .22's you shoot it keeps it even more fun.

    I had to choose 9mm, 7.62 (308) and .223/5.56. and I reload these

    9mm for my carry, have 3 of them so its what I shoot the most.
    7.26 for use with my Cetme and my tatical/hunting rifle.
    .223 cause my AR is one of my favoret toys. :D

    One thing to note is that what I shoot the most and what I buy the most may not necessarily be the same thing at any given time... I suspect the same may be true for others.

    Though I think that probably gives a pretty good idea of calibers people would be interested in tracking prices on...


    ALSO: Poll issue: do you mean 7.62x51 or 7.62x39 because I assumed x51 for some reason but I shoot a lot of x39

    Top 3:
    .22lr for bang for your buck
    .223 the only way to controll how many I shoot is how many I bring
    .40 S&W or .45 ACP gotta love em'

    There's .38 SPL, .357 Mag, .44 SPL, .44 Mag, and .45 LC.....
    Most of what I shoot is big bore revolver. LOTS of it is .45 LC, .44 SPL. Lately, I'm loading for the .38 SPL.
    I don't buy ANYTHING factory loaded (and haven't in decades!) except for .22 LR. Nothing I shoot costs me more than 8.6 cents a round to make myself.
    Long live casting!

    Happy Shootin'! -Tom

    Trap mostly lately, but .45 and .357/.38 when I get to that type of range. I reload everything (except .22) so I never buy loaded ammo!!
