    2, - Rem 700, 300 rem. ultra mag. already had some ideal reloads developed.
    - DPMS .308. felt pretty bullet proof when handling that. Same recoil as AR-15, bigger bang, bigger hole, longer range.

    I've only sold 2 of my own my entire life. Still don't want either of them. :)
    The only reason I sold them is I wanted to consolidate calibers (and the fact that .380/9mm cases fit nicely inside 40 S&W cases which REALLY pisses me on when depriming)

    And both of them fit nicely inside a .45 case. I just finished depriming .45, .40, and 9mm all mixed in one bag, what a PITA, but that wouldn't stop me from owning a .45, a .40, or a 9mm.

    When I empty my range bag at the day, I have to dump out the Spent Casings bag and sort the batch into 40 and 45. I occasionally miss some. one time I had a 9mm inside a 40 inside a 45. Can't figure it out, I don't own a 9mm, though I do pick up brass that others leave behind so may not have been paying attention that day.

    Every gun.

    I mostly like to reload, finding the most accurate load. That is the hook for me. Then I get board with the gun and want to try something new. I'll sell it and buy a gun that will some times not shoot accurately and kick myself for selling the last one.

    On the up side is, I have gained a lot of experience with a a lot of different cartage's over the years. I keep very detailed data on them all.

    22 Lr. (Ruger 10-22. Accurized be me. One holer @ 50 yrds.)
    22 Lr. (T/C Contender 10" & 14")
    223 Rem. (Rem. 700 PSS and AR.)
    220 Swift (Rem. 700 VS & *Ruger KM77VT Mk II)
    6 Rem. (Ruger M77)
    25 Bullberry (*T/C Contender 14")
    25-06 Rem. (Ruger No.1-B & V)
    7 mm TC/U (T/C Contender 14") (Burnt out 3 barrels/IHMSA)
    7 mm BR/Rem. (Rem. XP-100)
    7 mm-08 Rem. (T/C SSR)
    7 mm JDJ (*T/C Contender 14")
    7 mm STW (*Sako L691 Mag. custom built)
    30-30 Win. (*Marlin 336 & *Win. 94)
    308 Win. (Rem. 700 VS & *PSS)
    30-06 Spfl. (*Rem. 700 BDL)
    300 H&H Mag. (*Win. 70)
    30-378 Wtby. (*Sako L61R)
    32-20 Win. (T/C Contender 10")
    375 H&H Mag. (*Win. 70)
    9 mm (IMI Baby Eagle, Glock 26)
    357 Mag. (T/C Contender 10")
    35 Rem. (T/C Contender 14")
    44 Rem. Mag. (Ruger Super Black Hawk, 10.5" brl.)
    45 ACP (Five 1911's)
    454 Casull (*FA Casull)
    45-70 Gov. (T/C Contender 14". The Ouch Mister)
    50 BMG (*LAR Grizzly)

    In truth the guns with * next to them, were guns of three good friends and my brother. But, I did develop the loads for them.

    None that I have sold; but I had one stolen. A Savage 99C in 243, still remember the serial number.

    I had an all matching P-08 w/holster that I sold for $900 about 10 years ago. Only paid $150 for it 40 years ago, but I wanted something I could shoot. Should have kept it.

    My neighbor's son wanted to get into shooting and he wanted my Taurus 44 mag hunter with a 12" barrel as his first gun. I think it was a novelty and I could not convince him to buy something different. So I sold it to him for $500 with a condition that he would sell it back to me when he no longer wanted it or needed to fund a new purchase. He had it for 5 years and I finally bought it back from him because he needed money. I missed it every day he had it. To this day I still have all my original purchases. Just can't seem to let go.

    The one I regret most was (ignorantly sold in 1981 so I could buy my first M1A for Matches) a really beautifully customized/sporterized 1903 by Remington. The most accurate rifle I've ever fired, owned or hunted with.
