    From time to time I wonder who reloads, and who does not reload. Feel free to sound off if you reload and let us know what you reload, and how long.

    I have been reloading for just over 30 years. I reload, 9mm, 38spl, 357mag, 40 S&W, 41 mag, 44 spl, 44 mag, 45 colt, 45 acp, .243, .280, 30-06, and I have reloaded 410, 12, and 20 gauge shotgun.

    How about you.

    The lock rings are appreciated. I think maybe you should go ahead and buy one Lee die set for each caliber you reload for this week. I'm just saying.:D

    Seriously, thank you.

    It's funny Alpo because I know you reload and I just chuckled because I knew that is what your list would look like. That is acquired wisdom right there. Do you have a favorite?

    coming up to 40 years here . cant even begin to name em , too many, and many i have not done in 20+ years and a fair few wildcats

    we can reload for friends or sale here without the insurance BS you have

    only thing is we have to get ID off them ..

    aint worried if they get hurt , only if they have the permit and paid for a licence ..
