Ammo Reloading

Anyone into reloading their own ammo? I recently got into this hobby myself and was curious if anyone else on the forum was into it.

Thanks...

I recently inherited some reloading equipment when my father in law passed away back in October. Unfortunately he never got the chance to take the items out of their boxes. I have always loved to shoot and considered reloading my own ammo but never took the leap.

Been loading for awhile. What make and model of gear and what caliber(s) will you be loading?

I have a full bench of RCBS equipment and have reloaded a little bit so far. Once my stock of purchased ammo begins to get low, I will take the time over one winter and reload a bunch...

No but given the amount I use I probably should.

I need another hobby like I need a hole in my head. My bride was on my case the other night about a few of my "accumulations". I have bicycles, sewing machines, lawnmowers/garden tractors, camping equipment (stoves and lanterns) and other minor collections.

Took the time to go through everything over the holidays. The kit is the RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme Master Single Stage Press Kit. I have dies for .223, 45ACP, 380ACP, 9MM Luger, and 38 special/357. I have added several items like a Lyman case prep kit and a RCBS case trimmer.

I have been reloading for 50 years. Geez that makes me sound ancient. When I was a teen ager I would reload shotgun shells for my father and myself for hunting and trap shooting. I now use a Dillon RL550 among others (like Lee) and am partial to Forester dies for rifle ammunition. I also cast my own lead bullets occasionally. I have always enjoyed reloading my own ammo plus I can reload any type of cartridge I want for any purpose be it hog hunting or match accuracy.

Best
