Title says it all. I am getting in to it and would like someone to talk to a little about it.


Also I may have a ton of brass for sale or trade or whatever

I do some reloading for 22-250, .270, 30-30 and .460 S&W. Going to get dies for .223 and .45 ACP.

Do you have your press/dies and other equipment yet? Best thing to get first is a good reloading manual. It will have a wealth of knowlege on the how to's and what not to do's.

I like to reload not only for the $ savings but it's a good way to relax and it just feels good to shoot ammo that you made.

I have a lyman turrent press that I have set up for 223, I have a lee shotshell reloader that I have loaded on for years for 12 gauge, also a dillon square deal set up for 9mm and last but not least I have a single stage lee set up for cleaning the primer pockets of all of the military 9mm that I have at the moment.


If you have a square deal I have a conversion kit for 45 acp but it has to be used on a square deal.


I also have the hornady 7th edition reloading manual

Don't have a square deal, I've got the RCBS rock chucker press. Just one shell at a time, but I'd get cornfused otherwise. ;D

This is something that I always wanted to get into but never have. Depending on the out come of Tuesdays elections, I might have to start.

I've reloaded since 1980 with a Lee shotgun press untill a couple of years ago when a RCBS progressive shotshell loader showed up into my shop one day. ;)
Loaded centerfires from a RCBS special since 1981, and then Santa brought a Hornady Lock N Load progressive to the christmas tree this year. ;D ;D

I love Santa ;D

I think I might just have become the laziest reloader in Oklahoma. During this last few weeks of cold weather I mounted my press on 3/4 plywood 10"x10" and clamped it to the burley table in my den. Then made .223 and .45ACP as I watched football. Too cold out in the shop. One thing learned for those two calibres, I neeeeed a progressive machine to crank out the volume needed to stay up with the shooting.

You got it buddy! when you get into the volume shooting there is just not enough time in the day to crank them out on the single stage. I'm still getting the Hornady set up. There are a lot of accessories they don't include like shell plates, etc, that I can't get in a small one horse town. I have to go to OKC next week to pick up a cargo trailer I bought from Tinker on an on-line auction, so I'll get a list made up and pick them up then.
