    I used to try to reload everything. Now I’ve dumped everything and Focused my collection. 9mm subguns and 556 rifles in FA. I only reload cast 9mm bullets I make myself. I just wanna shoot cheap shit and don’t wanna waste too much time. That helps me focus my collection and spend more time shooting

    None, due to the astronomical primer cost at .10 cent a pop.
    When I do reload, I would reload 9mm, 5.56, 45acp, 380 and .308.
    The vast majority of that was 9mm and 5.56 though.

    I’ve seen TheColtCollector’s do reloads and he’s got the right setup, right idea and doesn’t mess around.

    I reload everything I shoot with the exception of shotgun. Somewhere between 30-40 different calibers. From .32acp to 404 Jeffery. 308,3006,.45acp, 9mm, .223,300blk, .357 and .44mag are all loaded on progressives. Everything else on a rockchucker or forster single stage

    None lately, nor shooting, tbh. Used to reload everything I shot, except 22lr.

    I reload for virtually everything, I've even gone to the trouble of reloading Berdan primed cases. The latter is interesting, but rarely practical.

    Along with 26.5mm and 22lr.

    Still humming along with primers. Just paid .08 for spp kinda hurt but since i also cast it was still cheaper then the going 30 for 9mm
    And if you have seen the price of 357. It's 60 bux a box of 50 local here for good stuff.

    Also have a herters swage system for certain guns that can not shoot cast.

    Occasionally some hunting rounds 25.06 but a 100 rounds lasts years

    Do I understand correctly that you reload 22lr?

    Yes you did.

    https://fedarm.com/product/22lr-reloading-kit/

    https://oldwestbulletmoulds.com/shop...ifle-crimp-die

    https://22lrreloader.com/products/pr...iming-compound

    Seems most stuff has tripled in price and most is OOS.
    Guess I'm not the only one doing it.
    2000 primed empty cases used to be 20 bux and if you bought 5 boxes of 2K (10k ) it was only 9.95 shipping.
    They are OOS since they are 404 paged its what they do when those are OOS since their price does fluctuate.

    The 22reloader primer compound stuff is OK the mold is shit and not worth the money.
    When i bought my heeled mold it was 38 bux + shipping now its 155

    I don't bother to reuse shot 22 cases for reloading instead i swage them into 556/223 blasting projectiles with home made dies i made on my lathe.
    I've turned out a pile of custom dies for myself over the years for reloading projects.
    Including sizing dies for swaging and gas check dies.

    I need to make a set of dies for burst disks for the 26.5mm
    I also turn out cases and projectiles for it since its a RV-85 on a F1 DD

    I've only reloaded 1700 rounds of 22lr out of what I bought.

    It was more a exercise of can't stop the signal then needing to do it.

    I'm pretty set in CCI subs inventory. And when i bought the stuff things were a whole lot cheaper.
    No way I'd pay the asking price for the double cavity mold and other items needed today.
    40 bux when i bought the mold was/is a standard price for a double cavity unless its a rare steel ideal mold.
    Those things can go for mad loot on auctions.

    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/935610327 in stock not to bad for a complete die set.
    He also has copper projectiles. Those are kinda up there though.

    So it's out there just have to find it.

    ETA: GB 22 reloading stuff

    I used to re-load lots of high caliber rounds as it was cost effective and you could dial loads in for certain rifles.
    Now that I shoot mostly 9mm I keep thinking maybe I should start reloading it. Forever it just didn’t seem like the cost savings was worth it.
    I think the only 2 calibers I have loaded in the past 5 years is 300WM and .44 Mag

    I am setup to reload 12 gauge, 9mm, .38/357, 10mm, .45, .44 magnum, .223, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .308. Don't shoot 12 much and still have a lot of primers left over from last time I bought a case of them. Pretty much down to loading 9mm and .223 in bulk for practice these days, have a stash of small rifle and pistol primers that were bought back when bargains were to be had. Have a few bolt rifles in .308 and 6.5 that I load for, but those are like 50-100 at a time for accuracy load development and practice. Most of the other calibers I don't shoot much and will wait until my limited stash of ammo for them starts to dwindle then reload the empties 100 or so at a time.

    If primers ever get back down to a reasonable level will start loading more.
