Yeah I get it. I still wish though it was more available. There are times when I have family from out of state come to shoot with me and to walk out without my deagle is so frustrating, simply because there is no ammo to be found. Grrr.

Love your signature btw. I own a parabellum.

you need to take up reloading for that big cannon. cuts the cost waaaay down and you dont have to hunt for it.

can always have 50ae on hand doing that. plus if your into guns reloading is a natural extension and i find just as much fun as shooting

I would need a trust worthy instructor to teach me. I don't think it's anything I can just start doing on my own. I've always just bought ammo. I don't even know anyone that reloads. I can get all the casing I want. The gun range gives them for free. I just don't know if I would trust myself to do it right. Ugh. Hey at least I'm honest.

A P08 Luger? Nice! I have a couple, a 1913 DWM and 1941 byf. They're amazing pistols! Next year I hope to be shooting a 100-year-old pistol.

Well collect all the brass you can VGG, especially for the DE, because I bet someday you will reload or you'll find someone who does and will help. It isn't hard but does require 100% of your attention. It's definitely something that demands zero defects.

Do not be afraid, the good folks at Dillon Percision make a variety of reloaders and the even make a Sqaure Deal B - pistol reloader already set up w dies in your choice of caliber. Easy to swap out as well. 800 762-3845. Get their mthly mag Blue Point Press sp it has some great articles in it.

They will walk you through the whole process as well as help you troubleshoot. The people on this forum will help as well. Whole lotta knowledge on this forum.

I have mine set up on a portable stand and a lockable cover. Why ? I can move it into the light and work until done then put it away. It's for people w no room.

Reloading really helps w the cost in larger calibers and allows you to tailor a load to almost any firearm. POA = POI. (or buy Adj. sights)

In any event ,OP, save as much brass from the range as you can.

Replace what you can into your used ammo boxes, and just bag the rest.

Reloaders are always looking for decent brass, so it has value.


I got into reloading as a quest for improved accuracy, and IME,

reloads are much better than WWB at a slightly lower cost. I'm

a little surprised nobody at your station reloads. I guess there

just aren't that many shooters in the department.
