    Like most people, I feel the crunch on reloading supplies. $48 for 1,000 CCI Lg pistol primers. I get it, supply and demand. Last weekend, at a gun show in MT, I watched man after man pay $150 for bricks of 1,000 Sm rifle. I know of a neighbor that got taken for $200 on 3 boxes of primers...

When I put the bullet on (55gr FMJ) the bullet...

    Still searching for 1 hole performance. Measurements smaller when measured from center of hole to center of hole.

    Back to the rifle range in pursuit of perfection. Back to the range at 100 yards looking for 1 hole accuracy. Will be working toward my stated goal and having a lot of fun trying to get there.

    Finally felt safe enough to avoid Covid-19 and get out and do some target shooting. Here are the results from my 222 Custom Remington. Next step is to re-load the same brass with the same primers, same bullets and same powder charges and shoot an identical target at 100 yards see those...

    I recently got a CZ Scorpion and I'm wanting to make some super hot loads to get as close to rifle ballistics as possible. Has anyone done this or have any advise? I understand it would wear the gun faster but I would only be shooting these in a SHTF scenario, not regularly.

    Well I've been setting around on a raining day without much to do. I have shot my cap and ball revolver enough for it to need a dip in the sink and am not quite ready to do that just yet. My primers are getting lower than I like so am conserving those and not doing any sizable reloading runs...

    I have a bunch of empty 9mm and 45 ACP ammo trays/boxes (Winchester, Herters, Remington, Federal and S&B) accumulated over the last few months. I hate to throw them out if any reloaders want them. If you do want them, please PM me your address and I will send them to you FREE of charge. First...

    In an attempt to salvage some 200 cases of loaded .243 Winchester (not military possible crimped) bought in a garage sale and somewhat corroded-I began the decapping and noticed many of the primers were fragmenting, the bottom separating and leaving the primer walls still in the pocket-I devised...

    Good morning gentlemen (and ladies) I have played with guns and reloading for over 45 years. Was a avid shooter back in the day when I could still see a fly buzzing that old bucks head @ 100 yards. Now days I entertain myself fixing up old guns, reloading, casting, and any other little...

    Hi Guys, I am preparing to retire from 30 years as a Fishery Officer on the east coast of Canada and summed up 27 years in the CDN Army Reserve in 2015. This forum was recommended in a youtube video on reloading. While I've been a shooter for most of my life, reloading is a new venture for...

    Hi all, Old guy, yet new to this site. I recently inherited all my father's reloading equipment. Most of it is old and well used. A bunch of types of brass, dies and powders. I will not be using a good portion of the equipment or supplies. What is a common way of getting the info out and...

    Someone share a bad experience with me so I thought I'd pass it on. Prior to the last election a lot of people bought huge amounts of ammo. Yes, I also bought more than normal... Other than taking up space and having to keep it dry, it isn't much of an issue. I also reload and have...

    I know we have members in many parts of the world and while the ownership of firearms is very limited to non-existent I am curious about reloading supplies in countries where firearms are permitted albeit limited. I am still very much a newcomer to reloading but have come to enjoy the hobby...

    I am interested in starting to reload .30-30 cartridges for my 1984 Marlin 336CS lever action rifle. I have a Lee (hand) reloader press and already reload my .44 Mag. cartridges. Looking for advice on the top 2-3 Reloading powders for a .30-30 cartridge? Also if you have some rationale for...

    Hey, I am new to reloading, and I wanted some insight on a mistake I made. I loaded a batch of .243 Winchester with: 41.0 gr of IMR 4831 Hornady 100 gr BTSP Winchester Brass (new) But I accidentally loaded them with magnum primers (CCI #250). (I'm stupid, I know.) Will these be safe to use in...

    Hello, I am reloading 9mm and I am having trouble with my powder thrower. Its a Lee perfect powder thrower and I have it set to the grains that I wish to use. But when I go to check the grains against my Lee Perfect powder measure, and a digital scale, I am getting different numbers. My powder...

    I'll try to keep this short but detailed. (Also note before reading this I like to be cheap, when I can be so I currently have varying brands of brass) I screw in my Lee FL die, spray Hornady One Shot case lube on my cases, grab a case, insert it into my #2 shell holder that came with my dies...
