I second the .25-06 it is one flat shooting SOB, factory ammo is reasonable.

If you want to get into reload look at some of the Lee Starter kits, they are
reasonably priced and will work well on the smaller cases. If you like it then
upgrade to RCBS and Dillon as you see fit. I justified my initial reloading
equipment with my .300 H&H Magnum it only took 300 rounds for a wash on
pricing.

I just want to clarify that i wasnt asking anyone to commit a felony, I was looking for other companies like superior that make custom load. I have a good friend that used them and it worked out great for him. I just didnt like the price because i want to start shooting alot more. I would get into reloading if I could watch someone do it and someone that could teach me

Consider getting some books on the subject. The ABC's Of reloading, as previously stated. The new Lee Reloading manual, or the Lyman manual. There are many others as well. They will have solid guidance as to the ins & outs of the process.
Also, check your local gun shops and/or Shooting ranges, I would be surprised if you can't find someone willing to show you the ropes. Locally, our Sportsman's Warehouse has reloading classes now & then. I haven't looked, but I'd bet there is some useful info on YouTube.
As previously stated, the Lee kits are a good starting point for gear. I have a Lee challenger kit that works just fine (I'm not a fan of the included scale however).

I totally agree with Mr. Bear. The .257 Weatherby Mag is one of the classic over- bores and it is noted for it`s short barrel life.

I'm not a frequent or prolific poster, heck this is my first post on this forum.

I read your post though and never thought that gene, you shouldn't need to clarify anything to anyone.

I disagree. The OP said these companies would send him BULLETS, which implies just bullets....to be reloaded. If he had said CARTRIDGES, perhaps people wouldn't have misunderstood.

Just a question of semantics, I agree, but an important distinction to make before taking a good guy vs. bad responders approach. Just my opinion.

Agreed lonyaeger, I "assumed" he meant something other than what he wrote. The reference to wanting "rounds" later in the post, which to me means loaded ammo, is where I drew the assumption from.

I still don't feel like the post was cause for accusing the guy of asking someone to commit a felony and lecturing him to read up on operating a gun business. Others didn't either, there were replies which were constructive or meant to be helpful.

It's all good, people just seem to be quick on the trigger lately.

Again MHO, jw

I'd go the 25-06 route myself if my intention was some serious shooting; 100 rds a session or so. My definition.

You could hit a local gunshow, some guys sell hard to find ammo in ziplocks. Might worth your while to strike up a conversation and see what they can do for you. I'm sure they are properly licensed but it doesn't hurt to ask.

jw,

Did you actually READ the thread title, or follow the link to the thread posted above in regards to my comments?

So please don't be so quick on the trigger to judge others intentions.
Fair enough?
