Who reloads their own ammo?

    No, I don't do any reloading at all. I happen to have a Gamemaster 141 in .35 Rem, and it seems like the ammo costs keep going up.

    I don't shoot it enough to justify reloading, but your list did catch my eye. I have a box of shells here marked 1996, and it was $10.72 back then - now the same box is over $30!

    Hey folks,

    Looking at reloading for my Sweet 16.. since they seem to be twice the price of 12g.

    For those of you that reload shotgun where is a one stop shop for powder, shot, primers and wads?

    Ive seen some of the big stores but I figured some smart folks here have already figured it out.

    thanks your consideration. Pls shoot a note here or PM me.

    thanks D

    I reload Remington and Cheddite hulls. I bought quite a few cases of RGL’s and Herter’s a few years ago on sale. Powder, shot, primers, and Rem wads I got from Graf’s. SG16 wads came from Ballistic Products. And the recipes came from Lyman’s 5th.

    I hand load everything I use, except for steel shot shells.
    I couldn't afford to shoot competitively without hand loading.
    12 and 20 ga, .45 ACP, 9mm, 30-06, .303 Brit, .270 win., 375 H&H. I have dies for 300 win mag, 243 win, .308, and .35 Rem.
    I have 2 Mec 700's, a Dillon 550, and an ancient Herter's press.

    I started reloading in the late 80s by bolting a Lee Loader in .44 mag. to a board and then clamping it to the kitchen table when I lived in an apartment. Now I live in a house and load for the;
    .44 mag
    .220 Swift
    .38-55 black and smokeless powder
    .32 S&W
    .40 S&W
    .303 Brit.
    I have a hand reloader for the .22 rim fire but haven't used it yet.

    Started reloading in the late 80s, everything from .223 to 375 H&H magnun,as well as shotgun. Rifle loading saves alot on price, where loading 12ga target loads is pretty much for the enjoyment. Loading 16ga. 28ga and 410 is well worth it. I really enjoy experimenting and developing loads tailored to a particular rifle. Very satisfying when you start to see all the bullet holes start touching on the target, when you started out with 2" groups
