Default Reloaders in the IE?

Just thought I'd check in to see how many reloaders there are in our area?
Does anyone do any swapping?

Awesome! I mostly find guys outside the IE who reload.
Recipes for your best party dip.....

Components- I come across different things I don't end up having use for- brass, dies, magazines, etc. Always interested in swapping for stuff that is mutually beneficial.

Hey guys.

I'm looking for experienced reloaders willing to share their knowledge, equipment, recipes, etc.

Please PM if you are interested.


Open to all chapters, press configurations and calibers.......

I reload mostly 38's, but have the equipment to load 9mm, 38, 357 mag and 357 Rem Max. I need to get dies for 40 S&W since that's what I mostly shoot.

I have a ton of brass in calibers I don't reload for. Also, I have little intention of reloading 9mm as I have a decent stock pile and no longer shoot this caliber in any regularity.

Off the top of my head I have 9mm and 45 ACP brass that I'm willing to trade off.


Mrlonewolf, what kind of project do you have going? I have a very basic and beginner friendly setup that along with my time I'm willing to share.

Eventually would like to get set up for reloading but honestly have no space at the moment.

I would be willing to drop off used brass and pay for someone's materials, time, effort and expertise for reloaded rounds if someone was willing.

30-30 and 9mm would be the currently preferred, soon .38 special as well.

I know a lot of guys will tell you if you wanna play the reloading game that you need to jump in as deep as your pockets will allow but I disagree. Aside from the tumbler, my setup easily stores in a range bag when not in use.

In the beginning fundamentals are of the utmost importance, my LEE hand press retails for around $50 and does everything I need it to.

I bought the Lee Annv. kit., it is inexpensive but productive. Most reloaders will help you into it rather than keep you out of it.

I bought a couple of used RCBS single stage presses and load my own 9mm, 38 spl/357 mag, 45 acp, 5.56, and .308.
I mostly plink, so I keep my charges in the low to mid pressure range. No match grade components allowed in my house.
I would be glad to give up an hour to anyone that would like to come by to see the basics of metallic reloading.

Send me a PM if interested.

I'm in Moreno Valley area and I just started reloading not long ago. Right now I only reload .223 but soon will be doing 9mm .40 as well. I'm always looking to meet new people and learn more.

Great SN, My first pistol was a kp944, I almost regret selling it but my hand polished kp-94 will be the last gun I ever sell!

Am I going to the sszs this year? Hell yeah! But I'm abstaining from that thread since I single handedly killed 3.5! I plan on sneaking up a day or 5 early since they are eying my skeet hill as the hw of the event, I have no problem with sharing but... I call dibs!!! They can work around my group!

I'm picking up two 3' circles to build new gongs... My 21" gong I can read through after a mosin madness showdown...

Back on topic, I have components and the press setup for 38's. hell, I even have 100 or so primed and sized brass ready to throw powder in and seat LRNs I also have laying around! I'll have to load some up for sszs! At max load they cost about $0.12 each. I tend to stick with the revolver cartridges because I hate chasing brass!

Tinman, if you are getting into .40 I have some brass to trade for 45acp.

As of 11am, Ammo Bros (Ontario) had 9k Federal large pistol primers on the shelf. $35/per.

I have a ton of 40 brass but more is better right? I'll dig out the 45 brass I have, I just took a batch of 45 out of the tumbler and hopefully have it all found this weekend.

So yesterday Fowlers in orange offered a reloading clinic, I went for a few hours and had to leave. reason 1 was I have a hard time sitting in hard plastic chairs for long time with my bad back, reason 2 I want to learn about reloading but not so interested in how to fine tune a load for hunting.
I did learn a lot while I was there but I think I can learn more from the people here in a shortier amount of time.

Hey guys,
I just ordered my reloading press and I'm in the IE. Is there any specific kind of powder I should be ordering or will any powder do? I plan to reload 7.5 French, 45-70 govt, 300 weatherby and 7.62x39. Also, what kind of primers should I get? And where can you even get these supplies now?
Thanks for any help,
Devin

Start off with a reloading manual.
Look at recipes for the 4 calibers you want to load and see if there is a powder that covers all of them. Powder/loads are VERY specific, you can't use xx grains of one powder and expect the same amount of a different powder to be safe (or function)
Locally Ammo Bros seems to be doing the best with having powder in stock. Primers are hard to find, pretty much need to be in the right place at the right time. Bullets have been a mail order product for me.

I can't stress enough the importance of an up to date current edition reloading manual. Read it cover to cover, go through and write down recipe ingredients and see what kind of cross over you end up with.

Just a few months? Better late than never I guess. I used to buy buckets of brass from a SB indoor range until they priced me out and sign an exclusivity contract with a reloader... Now I don't say anything when I see a guy shooting steel cased ammo!

Get ready, I'm putting you to work at the sszs!

I know it's a one man job to reload but if anyone in the IE needs help, and help me learn just let me know.
