    My brother enjoys loading 40 more than others - maybe because it seems easier than some others including 9s and 380 45C, etc...

    I load a lot of calibers and I really can't think of one that I enjoy more than the others. Maybe the larger pistol calibers, if I had to pick, like .45 or .44 because they are just easier to handle.

    That's a difficult one to answer. I really enjoy loading up rifle rounds because of so many different variables and things to play around with. If you mean enjoy because of ease, I'd have to go with 38 spl and 357 Mag.

    I like loading the .338 Lapua. I think it is a neat looking round.

    40 s&w, and 45acp just seem to be easier than 9mm
    Haven't done any rifle yet

    Kinda depends on how I feel at the time, but I've reloaded a train load of .44 Magnums. I have 5, .44 Magnums that I like to feed a variety of ammo, and cast bullets for them too. But, lately I've been playing with my .223 and loads of WC820 and also trying cast bullets in it.

    Sometimes I think I've been neglecting one of my guns (or calibers) and do some shooting/reloading (45 ACP and .357 Magnum are also near the top of my list), but always come back to my .44s...
  10. Lots of calibers but it goes back to what I started with, 45 for pistol and .308 for competition and deer hunting. I guess you could say they are my meat and potatoes and everything else is side dishes.

    I love just about anything when I switch to a new caliber... it's like the first cut into a fresh piece of construction paper! (ok, stole that line from Family Guy)

    .308 is my least favorite for case prep but my most favorite when I'm sinking the bullets. .458 is a close second, seeing those finished rounds is nothing short of hilarious. They're artillery shells!

    I particularly like loading my precision rifle ammo. Particularly my .308. Just something about the attention of each and every teeny tiny detail and making certain each and every charge, bullet, case, and OAL is perfect. and then hitting the range and firing 10 consecutive 5 shot groups that measure between .6 and .8 at 200 yds. I love it.

    I like 6.5x.06 best,I load lots of different calibers,but taking the time,doing everything 1 at a time then shooting 3/4" at 200yds when sighting it in makes the time so worthwhile.
