You will never be able to load anything if you don't get your press mounted on your bench. LOL.

Rust? Hell,if your stuff was made from wood,it would be petrified by the time you get around to using it!
C'mon Brad,Get busy with it,and load up some rounds. I think I'll need to change barrels on the 6.5-06 by the time you get set-up.

You know I'll walk you through anything you need help with about reloading. I've kinda grown use to your way's of doing things!

Once again, Hammer down by Mr. Txh. but you do have a point. I will see about getting a press on the bench this next week and MAYBE have you quide me through at least depriming. Handguns or rifles first? I'll let you make the call, or perhaps a poll should be taken.

Ok I'm a total moron. I just ordered and received 1000 rounds of 45acp hollow points for my glock. Much to my surprise I only received the copper bullet tips and not a complete round with casing. I don't think it's in the publics best interest for me to reload but I have a friend who does it and has proper equipment. Is it going to cost me a fortune to get casings and gunpowder to make these compete? Is it worth the time and money even?

Or should I just chalk it up to mistake I learned from and move on?

your probably looking at about $300-400 just for the additional components for reloading depending on what is available and whether it can be sourced locally or has to be ordered.

the figures i used are purely speculative and based on what is available by mail order.

then you have to factor in whether you trust your friends compentence to reload ammo for you.

Good luck trying to find pistol gunpowders,there hasn't been any around in a long time.
I'd just try to sell them,or return them for a refund. Bullets aren't loaded ammo,and most places will let you return them for a refund,if they are in the same packaging they came in.

H110 and Bluedot are the only two pistol powders I've seen in the last year. Both are "magnum" powders and have other uses as well(shotgun,rifle). Neither is a first choice 45acp powder. Unique or PB are much better.

Primers are back on the shelves, but 20% higher than before. Brass can often be had for the asking at your local police department, assuming they use 45 and not the more common 40 or 9mm. Call it $250-350 to finish your 1000 rounds of 45. This is assuming your friend already has the tooling...

Tough luck on the bullets, but they are great trade goods for the next gun show!

I never thought of a gun show trade. I'll try sending them back for a refund but if I can't the gumshoe trade will work
