A need someone to reload for me...
I need someone to reload for my .257 weatherby magnum . I was told there are companies that will send out some sample bullets and you can see what groups the best and then by that combination by the boxes. I dont want 10,000 rounds but maybe a 100 rounds or so at a time. Does anybody have any sugestions.

It's not gonna happen.....

Folks here are WAY too smart for that. Cold hard truth.

That's a pretty tall order to ask for. You're asking someone to stretch their neck out pretty far. The liability issues compounded the now FTF guy X is making and selling ammo for member Y makes it a pretty bad idea.

meangene1975 10-16-2010 06:10 PM

specialty ammo and black hill ammo do. there are multiple companies do I am just shopping for the best prices. 90.00 a box from specialty and 5000 round minimum from black hills

Yes but those companies have liability insurance and a class 7 FFL (ammo manufacturer's license). In other words they're all legally set up for it. We on the other hand are not legally set up to reload for someone else. Why not start reloading yourself? Not only will you save a bunch of money per round, it's also VERY gratifying.

As the Bear just said- unless I am licensed as a manufacturer of ammunition, and have paid the Federal Excise Taxes, it is illegal. Buy a copy of the ABCs of reloading, shop for a used single stage press, dies, and a scale, and load your own. Research what you are looking at asking for, and do not ask people to commit Federal felonies. Really not an auspicious start at a forum, y'know? :rolleyes:

Yep, I was thinking you needed a Fed license to manufacture and sell ammo. So unless you got a foolish buddy, you're SOL. And I wouldn't want a person foolish enough to do it making ammo for me.

What's wrong with reloading it yourself? it isn't that hard.

Seriously "gene", if you really want to operate a gun business I would recommend you get on the BATFE web site and spend some time studying the regulations. Look in the firearms "publications" section.

I don't think you're gonna do any better with the above companies. They don't have your rifle to figure out what powder, bullet it likes. This they are loading in the dark really. Sure they may be constant but a load with 2fps SD with a bullet your rifle doesn't want is still going to shoot like crap.

Me I would go with factory ammo or sell the rifle and get a 25-06. It can do the same job as the 257 wby with less powder and ammo cost a whole lot less.

just start loading your own. handloading is right up for enjoyment if your into guns. it opens an enormous range of bullet selection, power levels and lets odd pricey rounds become affordable to fire.

highly recomend getting started loading your own.
