    I am now set up to reload everything I shoot. (If you figure that I haven't shot the rimfires in a while ;) )
    I'll need some more supplies, but I have all the dies etc.

    9mm is that way now, but 4 weeks ago it was hard to find here. 9mm lead too.
    But I need the practice, So I decided, "why not"?

    I shoot a lot of 22LR through my converted M4. I'd like to start reloading 12GA so I can shoot more. It's taken a long time to find a shotgun that doesn't kick too much. I physically can't take much recoil.

    Then definately get an inexpensive press, and learn to make your own low-recoil loads.

    It's easy and cheap.

    I did these with a $50 Lee press.

    Some have paint or marker on them because they are special loads.

    Well I am now setup to reload all of these:
    12ga
    16ga
    .45 ACP
    .38sp
    .357mag
    .30-30
    .223
    9mm Luger
    .380 auto

    So far I have not tried to reload for the .380 auto, and I have not made very successful .30-30 loads either.

    My best efforts have probably been with the .223 rifle and the shotguns, but everything else seems to work quite well.

    Since I posted in March I have added a Marlin .22 mag rifle, bought at an auction, 12 guage Mossberg 500, also at an auction, and most recently 45-70 Henry last week as a birthday present.

    The Mossberg was in pitiful condition cosmetically, it is a project in the works.

    Many years ago I had a 22-250. It was a tack driver.

    The one I have is pretty good but the two best are the 35 Whelen in a Remington 700 and the Patriot in 375 Ruger.
    Both will print 1 hole if I can hold them still.
