While not really an update, I did get the reloading die set today. That was the #1 thing that I was waiting on to happen before I would buy into the 9x39 because I would never buy an import only round. While I have no problem buying commercial ammo, I would not want to paint myself into a corner with only being able to buy imported ammo. Due largely to political instability and a myriad of other reasons. So, when I found out that Redding was making a reloading die, I sucked it up and bought a set. There is hardly any load data available for it, but my buddy Todd who helped me work up my favorite blackout loads, said he'd see what he could come up with a quiet powder through quickload and help me out. So, I'll probably end up with something that works really well. I hope. At least that's the plan anyway.
