.32
.38 Spec
.45 Long Colt
.45 ACP
9mm
6.5x55 Swedish
7.62x54R (just starting)
12ga

Loading mostly for cheapness. Family does Cowboy Action Shooting so the .32-.45's and 12ga are mostly light loads.

Loading 54R mostly for cheap hunting ammo for my bro-in-law since mil-surp just goes right through without stopping the animal.

I'll probably start hand loading .40 S&W soon too.

9mm luger mostly, and 12 ga.

For the 12 ga, mostly slugs, but also some #4 buck and birdshot as needed. Powder shortage has put a real damper on this.

The other frequent fliers are 30-06, .308 win, 38/357...

Stuff I load for friends, etc: 45ACP, .223, .380 ACP, .40 s&W

I have a lee loader for .410, but haven't used it yet.

I have everything but the dies to do 5.7x28 FN, and expect to make a bunch with my cousin sooner or later.

.300 BO will happen as soon as I get a shooty tube for it.

I cast bullets in 9mm ~125 grains rN, 358-112 SWC .452-243 TC,

12 Ga slugs, 1 oz, 7/8 oz. (Really want the lyman 525 mold...)

Rifle: 312- (165?)-2r (streamlined profile), 312-192-FN (#314299 IIRC) -- Both generally powder coated, hard alloy sized to .309"

Oh, & I forgot I also cast a .358"-190-HP that I designed and a cool guy made the mold for me. _needs some serious R&D to optimize. I might not be able to patent it at this point even if I want to, but I'll avoid bragging about the things I think are clever on it. If I get it to work how it is intended, you bet I will be proud to talk though.

I'm also working on getting the money together to make a casting machine. I plan to be able to offer it as a commercial product at a relatively low price point.

There was a thread here that I put a lot of that information into. It was a question about powder measures initially.

Boris, how do you like 6.5x55? I've been thinking about getting a rifle for that.

It's a great round. It's for my dad's Swedish Mauser so I really only shoot it whenever he happens to bring it to the range. The rifle shoots great and the and the PPU he uses to get more brass works great in it - very accurate. He mostly reloads them himself to save a few dimes here and there on ammo - plus, he's retired and has time to sit in front of the press all day and crank out as much ammo as he wants! :lol: But definitely 2 thumbs up on this caliber from me and my dad.

Hmmm I'll have to look into it some more. I plan on getting a Swedish Mauser sometime in the next year. I think it would look good sitting next to my K31s in the cabinet.

I haven't really got bitten by the C&R bolt rifle bug, but those K31s and enfeild SMLEs do appeal.
