    Im currently reloading:
    .30-30 in my Marlin 336
    .30-40 in my Winchester 1895
    7.7x58 in my Type 99 Arisaka

    For my next caliber I plan on 7.62x54r for my Mosin 91/30.

    So what are you reloading?

    Currently only doing .45 Auto. Getting about $10 a box of 50.
    Going to start .223/5.56 soon. Figure about $240 per 1,000.

    Ha! I meant it is costing me about $10 a box of 50 for .45 and figure it will cost me $240 per 1000 for .223.
    I don't sell ammo. It for me only!

    Too funny...

    I don't reload yet, but I will be loading some 7mm Rem Mag and 270 this winter for the first time. I'm doing it because it is cost efficient and better ammo than factory stuff. I am trying to get into shooting better at long ranges and want to take that next step
