    Looking for some .223 brass and some powder. I haven't had any lucky and Im not wanting to pay ridiculous price at gun shows

    All are used, some more so than others. All have been raided over the years of their de-capping pins - otherwise 100% intact/functional/excellent condition 30-06/270 WSM are full length 45 ACP includes a taper crimp die Shell holders ARE NOT included. I'm thinking $40 each shipped CONUS via...

    Has anyone messed around with the Lehigh 65gr Xtreme Defense bullet in .38 super (and its many associated cartridges) or 9x23win? I don't want this thread to devolve into arguing the effectiveness of the bullet, I'm just curious if anyone has tried reloading either combination and what the...

    :o.o: I didn’t count rounds, just counted full ammo cans. All I will say is, I have A LOT more than I expected. Stupid Dillon 650... (pleasant surprise) At one point last fall, I thought I’d run low on 9mm, so I bought 2 cases from SG and ordered more bullets from Precision Delta. I should...

    Stay sharp everyone! Let me start by saying almost all my powders have numbers, not names eg. Tite group & Bullseye is an old name powder. I set back enough for my Son & Grand children's lives. Thinking America would allow it's self to be disarmed in my lifetime, I bought my kids a bit O...

    I saw this last year, it is big & heavy. Who made it is a Mystery no name & a design so heavy for it's intended purpose. Have you seen anything like this? I have no idea about it's age. Just thought I would share it with you all. :)

    Spending a quiet Saturday night at home loading a few rounds for the range tomorrow. I don't know if you have heard about the fires that have been tearing across Australia but as well as all the other terrible loses our pistol club unfortunately was also damaged. Only minor but for safety...

    Gotta give a shout out to Dillon Precision . I recently purchased a pre owned XL 650 . It was set up for 3006 , but I intended to use it for 45 acp . Shell plate is same , nothing else is . I was able to use my RCBS dies . The correct powder bar came with it also . Called up Dillon tech , they...

    I wonder if we should buy a Progressive or a Single stage press? I found these 2 Lee hand loading sets on E-Bay & man do they bring back memories. :) The Lee hand loader kits that many of us cut our teeth on were cutting edge for us. The thought of handling your ammo was not so important when...

    I am now considering upgrading from the 550 to a 750. Is it best to buy directly from Dillon or from a Dillon Dealer? Buying directly from Dillon gives me a 30 day money back guarantee, new model who knows what the experience will be? With Dillon there is shipping and tax on top of the price...

    Hello, So I am looking into getting into reloading. Its something I've wanted to dive into but each time I want too, I back out. I think I over think it, and think it will be super complicated and that Id never be able to pick it up haha. I am curious how much would a good reloading set up would...

    For those of you that reload your own ammo, what is your preferred bullet for .45 ACP? I use Sierra, Hornady and Berrys, mostly. For range use, I've mostly been using 230 grain Berrys round nose (.452") and am pretty satisfied with it. I also use 230 grain XTP Hornady bullets to see how JHP...

    I'm looking into reloading my own ammo (.45ACP to start). What are the supplies I'll need to get started?

    Web-site seems to have been down for at least a week or so. Any clues or has the owner just pulled it completely?

    After several months prepping and as many trying to get the reloading supplies in logical locations, my reloading building is at what I hope is its final iteration.

    I've acquired 3, and heavily modified a 4th, pistols in just the last few months, after not even owning a centerfire handgun in nearly 20 years. And I've been trying to decide what's going to be next. It occurs to me that this is starting to border on silly. I think, rather than buy another...

    Hey fellas, just picked up a bunch of used reloading stuff for a song from the LGS I work at. I used to shoot shotgun trap and had 2 Ponsness Warren loaders so I am very familiar with reloading as a whole. Have never reloaded CF yet and want to load 9mm and 45 ACP. I got a Rockchucker and...
