I guess i should add "multi" to my list of calibers. ;-D
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"?
.22lr - Brno Model 2
.223Rem - CZ 527 American
.257 Roberts - Custom built FN Commercial with a 24" Lothar Walther Barrel
7x64 - Santa Barbara 98 actioned Voere (Becoming LR toy)
9.3x62 - FN Commercial with an express V sight, used from driven Boar
12g - 2x Browning 525, Browning BPS 28", Benelli Supernova (Birdshot, Buckshot and Slug)
I have firearms in the following calibers:
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.
.22lr, .380, 9mm, .243, 7.62 X 39, 30-30, 20 ga.
Ammo is plentiful in Oklahoma. It's our version of the fountain of youth.
.22 LR and .38
.410 and 20 and 12 gauge
22, 22mag, 380, 38 special, 9mm, 223, 5.56 and 12 gauge.
I'm trying to keep my list fairly small, as I reload everything I shoot.
No idea how old this thread is, can't see a date on them. Pretty good though.
22LR, 22 Mag. 2 243's Win Partiot and a Mod 700, 25-06 Rem. 6.5x55 Mod 70. 6.5x06 Mod 700, 2 308's, Win Rem 788 and Patriot, 30-06, custom 1903 Springfield by Paul Jaeger. Three AyA's in 410, 28 and 16 ga, Ithica mod 37 16ga. 2 22 LR handguns, High Standard HD Military, Smith&Wesson Combat Mastepiece, 2 9mm's, Ruger mod P89 and S&W Shield compact, 32 Long, S&W mod 16, 38 spec, Smith&Wesson 38/44. Oh forgot, 1917 Savage in 32 ACP, think that is it! I reload everything but the 410 just don't have room now for another press. Got quite a bit of ammo on hand though!
.22LR, 9mm, and 12 gauge
I have to amend my list again to add the 450 Bushmaster.
Well I am now setup to reload all of these:
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.
And a 2.78” black powder mortar.
Many years ago I had a 22-250. It was a tack driver.
I've added 300 Blackout to my collection.
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.
