    yup i do a lot of loading for it. just need some dies shellholder and brass. you can get the .311 bullets from lots of suppliers. you will be reallllly surprised how much better it shoots with consistant ammo.

    best dies are the rcbs. they come with both 308 and 311 expanders. some mosins and psl have small enough bores to use 308 bullets

    Thanks again. It will be a while until I reload but I was just wondering if the cartridge was reloadable

    While you can reloade steel cases as long as they arent split or have two flash holes. Its not good for the dies however. Steel on steel dies is no bueno. Ive built up my brass supply buying loaded ammo with brass cases

    Make sure you get Boxer primed brass. Berdan is a pita.
