Both very easy the 308 you will really notice cost savings and accuracy improvements just need to jump in and do it while you still can not hard at all, do you have a reloader friends? That's the best way to start. What is the wait? Yesterday I went to a local store ZERO powder 4-500 primers only already way over priced and high priced bullets like you saw. All presses sold! You may have almost waited to long as so many do. They had 40 cal, 22rf, & 380 ammo was it for pistol, some off calibers rifle ammo was all, Academy here not the place to buy anyway. Several customers were asking others if they had ammo to sell.

Per topic after yesterday's trip to a few stores killing time those who are still on the fence waiting or deciding well you may have sit on that fence a tad to long! If $$$ invested matter, Obie taught us well as Klinton also did. Anyone still not decided unless other factors are involved, just think also factoring the election year if things go south where you will be, much worse. When you have people at the ranges asking to buy ammo you know you did right. I love my shooting way to much to even thing of cutting back or worse, not me there.

Looking like another reloading week coming next week as they show 6 days straight of rain forecast 50%+ daily, our range is like glue when wet!

Bullseye?

You might be well served to try and find a powder you cannot easily double charge without it being obvious and ideally spilling over... especially as a new reloader..


Just a thought..

Bullseye is a great one I loaded that over 10 yrs along with 700X were the only 2 I used, now 9mm=WST and 45=Clays, I have a lifetime amount of powder here. We will probably load 1 day this week all day long. We also cast our bullets.

Way over 40 years doing all that here.
2 Dillions-Star-H LnLoad and a few more used to load commercial on a Camdex is how I paid for all.
