I have a setup and supplies for 7.5x55 which is pretty complicated. Lol A pita caliber for beginner reloading. I got a gift card for Academy Sports and bought dies/supplies for .308 today. I plan on reloading 38/357 in the future and I'm saving brass. I'm just wondering what you guys are reloading?

*edit* sorry about earlier, not sure what happened with my text haha

I reload .243 and 7mm Magnum (not in a long time though).

Hey Mike, all my reloading equipment is still packed in a crate from when I moved to my new house, a year ago... :oops:
I'll have to dig through it and find my cards. No polymer tips though, always used FMJ's and soft tips.

I will try to dig up my brass one day and ship it to you when you are ready to reload again. I dont reload but might get into it one day.

Do you guys reload to save money or create a special load? I know it can be time consuming.

On expensive calibers, you can save money, but in general, I look at it as shooting more for the same cost. Specialty loads, yeah that's where handloading shines. You can tailor the load to your firearm, or to a velocity you want.

It does eat up some time. After you learn the ropes, you get quicker at it.

300 win mag
270
45-70
45 lc
45 acp
357/38
7.62x54
6.5x55
308
30-06
8 mm
I load rifle for accuracy specific to a particular rifle
I load pistol because it's cheaper than retail, i.e., 45 acp reloads 230 gr round ball for 20 cents a round if you have spent brass vs 60 cents factory
As long as .223 is 30 cents or less a round it just doesn't pay to reload -

Mainly just for money saving, rarely dabbled in special loads.
