i dont have a lot of time to reload. thats why i got a dillon progressive. when i load up for cowboy shooting it takes me a week or so. 1 nite i will make the bullets by smelting the lead into liquid form and casting what i need for the match. about 45minutes to one hour.

next day they are cooled i will lube them takes about 10 minutes and also ill do the case prep by setting the used cases in the tumbler and letting em spin for a couple hours.

next day ill size the lubed bullets takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour.

next day ill make the ammo i need another hour or so.

i dont knock it all out at one time would never get anywhere. but i do steps each day for an hour or less whether i need rifle ammo or pistol or whatever

dont sell your stuff just set aside time and do it like that. instead of watching a show on tv at nite go do a few reloading steps for a half hour or so. making your own is rewarding and fun and you get better ammo for cheap

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...

Visit a local gun club or shooting range. Ask a range officer about hand loading. The RO will know a reliable source of instruction.

Keep it, set it up, and learn to use it.... Then load when you decide too,, loading should never become a chore.

Become steel or get cut.
