My first lot was 9mm.

Then I realized it makes more sense to reload rifle than pistol.

Have fun.

I want to reload so bad, but honestly the idea terrifies me. I don't trust myself not to mess up the math or something and blow my hand off.

You should save some big bucks reloading .45, plus after you work up some good loads just for your gun you will improve the accuracy of your shooting.

Welcome to reloading. If you shoot a lot, you will be spending more time at the reloading bench.

I loaded up another 1000 rounds of .45ACP yesterday.

I imagine loading rounds must be a lot like when I bottle my beer. I want to have the end result, but after doing the 20th bottle or so you just want to quit.

Same here. I wanted to reload so bad.. first reason is to learn. But ill just hold it for the time being till we buy our own house. Also having a 2 months baby at home, reloading can wait.

So now that you have your .45 reloaded, you should probably send it all to me to test it and make sure it's good to go.

Yeah, I need to start reloading but I don't have the room in my garage with my current workbench/workshop setup.

Nukinfuts29 I was super nervous but nothing to be worried about as long as you dont do things half ass and spend the time required to learn.
