If everyone posts the calibers they reload It might be a resource for area reloaders with questions.
I don't reload yet, but I was talking to beretta96 about it yesterday and got tons of good information. With ammo prices the way they are, now would be the perfect time to start. I'd like to start reloading 9mm, .45, and .44 mag.
I have alot of components for .50 bmg but I need some dies, primes and powder.
So give it a few months and I will be able to add myself to the reloaders list!
I reload .300 Rem ultra mag, 7.62x39, 7.62x54, .223, and .45 acp.
Im hoping to start loading .38/.357, .44 mag, .308, 10mm, and 9mm
7.62x39 steel case?
This is my first post! I reload the following: 38 special, .357 Mag, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, 9mm Luger, .223 Rem, .243 Win, 303 British, 7.5 Swiss, .308 Win, and 6.5 Carcano.
45 COLT,.38 special,357 magnum,and 30-30 for now.
I have dies for .223,44 mag/special,.380acp,and 45-70 but don't have those guns anymore
I have a dillon 550b and a square deal B. I prefer the 550 way more hand room .
Wow, that's a TON of equipment.
YA Im down for a class!
I just went over 92,000 on my Hornady LnL. I load mostly .45 and 9mm. I have loaded 45LC, 300WSM, .308, .270, .243, .223, .204 Ruger. I'm all set up to load all those calibers, just don't shoot the long guns as much as the pistols.
9mm and .45acp.
Soon I'll start with .223 (election year paranoia).
When it comes to manuals and other references I always recommend the Speer manual and the Hornady manual or set if its an older edition. They are some of the better reloading manuals in my opinion. The speer and hornady manuals cover the process in depth and are certainly among the better references on the subject.
I have an ol Herters press. and reload 30.06, .308, .223, 45ACP,.380, and 30 Carbine. Will be starting to load 7.62x39 when I get the dies and brass
Big +1 on ABC's of Reloading! It is the book I used to first learn.
I recently upgraded from an RCBS Rock Chucker to a Hornady Lock N' Load progressive. Couldn't beat the 1000 free bullets and 20% off Midway price.
I currently use it exclusively for 10mm.
Single-stage here! Lee that is. RCBS carbide dies. They do the trick for me.
Maybe 5.56/.223 one of these days......the stuff's still pretty cheap, though.......
25 auto ,32 auto,45 apc,9mm luger, 9mm makarov, 45 colt ,762-25, 32-20, 32-40,-25-35,762-54, 8mm mauser,223,25-06,815x46,30cal ackley improved with a 308 bullet.,30-06, 25-06, 22-250. as soon as i get a gun i get dies for it unless i have them.
Humm, haven't read that one (ABCs), but did start in the early 60's with
a Lyman 310 nutcracker tool and loaded 45 Auto and 30-06. Also still
have a Herters C press and a few sets of dies from that era. For some
reason switched to a RCBS Rockchucker even though the Herters works
and I have adapters for it. Have a couple of MECs, Pacific, and some
unknown one, and in 12 Ga. shotgun.

Can't remmember S... disease !!!!
Whoever asked about loading steel cases, PLEASE DON'T !!!! I have heard
of some doing it, but it doesn't have the same characteristics as brass. It
and aluminum cases are not designed for reloading are brittle when reworked.
Brass can be annealed for added life and prevent work hardening when sized
The others can not. They can split on the first, second, or ? Why injure
yourself or destroy your rifle or both?
Dontellthewife is a ZEN master when it comes to reloading! He tried catching bullets with his hand. Hee! Hee! His work station is a dream get away for reloader. Hell! If Winchester ever need to out house their contracts he could qualify to subcontract.
308 Winchester/7.62 NATO
Zeke, what part of Monsoon central is your AO?
