    I used to know all sorts of reloaders. I have 2 young grandsons that I would like to build cartridge boards for as a present and something to remember me by. I have been trying to locate someplace that will sell me just 2 each amo and bullets, NO Primers for as many rifle and pistol shells a I can get. I purchased a bullet remover and have taken apart a few rounds already however I need plenty more. I'm looking for 50cal, 44/40 45/70 308s etc. Can anyone help me? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    Let us know exactly what "bullets" or cartridges you want or need and I am sure some one or several people will help you. I would be glad to load you up some dummies (without primers) if I knew what you needed.

    I'll second Mr Moody, post up what you're in search of and I don't mind loading up a few if I have them on hand.

    I can get my hands on several different chamberings... the 50 BMG I don't have access to and the 44/40 is not something I think we have laying around. But a lot of others we have laying around. I too will offer to load you up some if you let us know what all you are looking for.

    dedlegs pm me your information. I have some .50 inert rounds I made up for a display with my Jeep. They are fired brass with a ball bullet loaded into the case, no primer or powder. I'll send you two. I also have other calibers I can load for you, what do you need?

    Hey guys, I got a pm from dedlegs last night and I told him I would send him some dummies. I told him to post the other stuff he wanted and I was sure that some other folks would jump in to help him. Here is what I am going to provide him:

    Pistol Rounds
    5.7X28
    .380
    9mm
    .38 special
    .357 Magnum
    .40 S&W
    .44 Magnum
    .45 Colt
    .45ACP


    Rifle rounds
    .204 Ruger
    .223
    7mm.08
    .308
    30.06
    45/70

    I can provide you with a couple of 17Mach2 and 17HMR rounds but they will be live rounds since they are rimfire and I can't remove the primers!!

    To all my new found reloading friends. Thank You, Thank You so much for your help. I have been in contact with George as you can read and could use what ever I can get. I also like to get hold of some shotgun shells. My brother game me some cartridges and some low brass shot shells. He gave me a couple of 4/10 shells some 12ga and 20ga low brass shots. At present I have 22s, 22mags, 32s, 9mm,38special 1-380 could use another, 30/30s. 243s. I would like to get the following , besides anything else anyone can send.

    221, 41cal, 40cal, 700 weatherbys, 17cal, 222, 22/250 50cal, 20mm, I don’t know if anyone has any, but I used to own a German 10mm shotgun. It had “brass shells” and I believe rim fire. 35cal. Ak47s 44/40s and old rim fire shells that can be spared.

    If you load your own shot gun shells. I would like to get my hands on any 10ga, 12ga 16ga and 20ga shells low and high brass, not loaded. I just purchased a bullet remover off of ebay so if you don’t reload, I can take any shots apart and dry fire the primers. “Except for the 50cals & 20MM. Don’t want to blow my hands off. Hey guys, you are the Best. I can’t thank you enough.
    Dave

    From the list above I can provide the 222 Rem and the 22/250. I can't do the 17 HMR or the 17 Mach 2, but I can provide a 17 Rem.

    Also on hand for 22 Hornet, 218 Bee and 250 Savage if you are interested.

    Email me at wildwestguns@alaska.net with your snail addy and I will mail you, at the very minimum, a 50 Alaskan dummy. I may have .455 Webley dummies too, have to dig in my box.

    I may have also some 500 Nitro or suchlike brass lying around. The only one I know for sure in my addled stae is 50 Alaskan
