    I just enjoy reloading in general. I find it rather relaxing, and the time passes by so quickly. When I get the first of my 2 AR's built, I'm pretty sure loading 300 blackout will be a favorite for a while. I have been buying brass for it every chance I get. My only choice around here is to either mail order it and pay hazmat fees, drive the 90 minutes to Cabelas and prey they have it, or mail order the brass with no hazmat fee and buy the rest of the stuff local. I have dies, brass, powder, primers, just waiting until the guy at my local shop goes to pick up his order with my order for a good supply of bullets.

    I enjoy loading the .327's; they seem to be the easiest to get a good flow and few problems. Something I enjoy about loading 38's with 110gn Speer's too though. I have a few loads that I get a little more excited about loading. None that I dread though, they're all enjoyable.

    Since moving to a Dillon 550 B, I only load .45ACP even though I have everything to load 9mm.

    I like loading 300 RUM. There is something about pouring 106 grains of powder into a case, capping it off with a bullet, and then feeling the weight of the finished cartridge in your hand; all the time knowing how much power is bottled up inside it.

    I started with the .44 mag, and I have to say that it is still my favorite round to load. .45ACP would come in second. I just like big bullets!

    .308. My Dillon loves to load them, and my M1A loves to be fed them. :)

    My favorite round to load is the .45 long colt. I have a pistol and rifle that use the round.

    The 45 Colt is my favorite as well. It's a big bullet and fun to shoot.
