Like the title says. Who's in to reloading? And what all are you loading for. And what type of equipment ...

I run a Hornady Lock n Load single stage. With a RCBS uniflow powder measure. A Frankford Arsenal digital scale. And a Lyman TS700 sonic cleaner.

So far I'm loading for 45ACP. I'm fixing to branch out into .223 and 9mm. Then I'm heading for 300Blackout and 308.

I've had it since the 80's. I don't know anything different. I haven't set it up progressive. Everything by hand. Very old school.

That's why I went with a single stage. I wanted to physically do everything by hand.

Lol. I'm not sure I want to . I just do. But then I'm only using it for precision shooting. So, I like having complete quality control over each stage. I assume that is what you are doing.

That's the idea with the rifle calibers. With handguns it's just for fun though. I can't believe nobody else is into reloading on here. What kind of powder are you running for the .30-06?

48 gr IMR 4064 with Barnes 150 gr tsx. I am behind enemy lines in CA. Only copper bullets. I have found Barnes to be outstanding. Thank God. But very expensive. They don't save money but they keep you legal here. And they are very impressive.

Ive got a question for you guys, only recently got into shooting have a mossberg 500 tactical and M&P15.. Just now getting used to the rifle, the shotgun is more for home defense, but what are the savings in doing reloads? Ive been told by a dealer I would go shoot the shit with and he said its a small savings if he were to do it but he can get the head space perfect for the rifle, so besides that is there a lot of savings?
