    So what are you working on? What will it be used in? I'm thinking of some 7.62x54 loads<need to order die set> or some 38 Spl for the Ultra-Lite.:paranoid:

    Exactly the same as you. Toss in some .40 as well.

    30-06. Not only am I about out of the loads I use for hunting deer, but I have a new rifle and I'm curious to see if it likes my old loads, or wants something new.

    Planning on finally getting around to developing a load for .338 that will be all purpose and reach out there.

    For me, summer reloading is the same as the rest of the year. 9mm, .223, .308, and 30-06.

    Finally broke down and added a caliber change for my Dillon 650 so I can keep up on my .308 and 30-06 loads.

    It seems like the faster I can reload, the quicker I shoot it.

    Testing out some new powders for the hunting rigs... Varget / Rel 15, and settling on some gallery loads for the old warhorses.

    Right now. Nothing in particular. I have a pile of 9mm brass that needs cleaning and then loading, probably need to get on the .223 stuff too at some point.

    175 bthp 3006 loads, trying rl22, varget, 4831sc and 4350. Finding a good place 500+ to shoot is the problem.

    Sounding like some good new loads will be made this summer. Rammit what about reduced sized targets for the local range until you can find the needed space?

    I have the winter off so I tend to do most my reloading during the winter but this year I bought into a new caliber (38spl) and my son and son inlaw both added a caliber to my reloading (.45ACP and .40SW). And I didn't get as much loaded up for my .44spl and the new .38spl as I wanted due to limited funds. I also just bought a Savage Model 12 LPV DBM in .243 so will have to stockpile some ammo of it.

    Going to try to buy a box of slugs or a pound of powder every payday so that when the winter comes around I can sit on my *** and squeeze a bunch of ammo out.

    Some .45-70 in the single-stage at home for the upcoming hunting season, some 9mm at Jim Jacobe's shop for the Glock and the Sub 2000 :)

    Might buy 1K of the nosler 185 gr jhp's and work up a load for .45 acp . Although , the Missourri cast 200 Lswc'rs shoot so good I might just stick with those ! $80 per 1K .

    I'll be reloading 7mm Mauser and .43 Spanish. This will be my first time for both of these cartridges. Also, I have some 7.62x39mm to reload. I will be trying Hornady VMAX bullets in these.

    I miss that sweet dinging sound too. Just like a great song play at the range:). have you tried the target balls yet? >> DO All Gun Ball Resealing Target Up to 50 Cal
