    Who reloads?

    I've reloaded ammo before but decided to get back into it a while back. So I've got a decent little set up and figured I would share and see who else is into it.

    All I'm reloading right now is .308 because that's all I'm shooting. But may get into .223 since a bunch of friends are begging me to.

    I'm using mostly Hornady stuff. Which, by the way, if you get dies or a press from them right now, they are giving away free bullets.

    So here is my setup.

    I do and have for a long time. I moved into a smaller place though and am struggling to get stuff set up again. I reload for .357/.38 special and my 7x57 hunting rifle. .223 will be starting up pretty soon as well, but I don't have the dies yet.

    I enjoy reloading but I'm giving it up. I may work up some handloads occasionally for load development on precision bolt guns but that's about it for me. To me, it's just not worth the risk.

    One of the things I've learned with my gunsmithing pursuits is that hand loading is one of the most common causes of firearm failure. Everybody thinks they won't **** up, but it can happen. I've done it myself and I've prided myself on being anal as hell and following the manuals carefully when reloading. Still managed to do something wrong and had a squib load in a Ruger Blackhawk. I'm just not messing around with it anymore. I'm not trying to get killed or maimed over some fucking bullets.

    That said, it is a fun hobby. Enjoy.

    I did it for economical reasons, but now that lead is so expensive, it's difficult to justify the investment in time over the cost of Blazers for pistol ammo. I'll keep up with the shotshells though. Largely moot, ever since The Man hired me to work fro Big Pharma, I can't carry at work, which means I rarely carry, which means I have less impetus to practice, so I don't go through 100-250 rounds a week of centerfire any more.

    I plan to start reloading shotshells, as we (as a family) started shooting trap again. The shot is pretty expensive, though, still, cheaper in the long run reload. I've been saving shotshells for a long time.

    Yeah, I was thinking of doing shot shells, too. May end up doing that.

    I've had squib loads and misfires from factory loads. So, I guess it can go both ways. It's pretty fun though.

    It is fun, and yes you can get bad factory ammo. But the factories are going to have quality control systems and automation in place that mostly eliminate the possibility of human error. There is less risk with factory ammo.
