Yeah, it'll be interesting to re-adapt to the western mountains, and western mountain culture . . . . but I should be able to figgur it out since I put myself through my last years of college with chainsaw. Set chokers, bumped knots, then worked as a faller in eastern Oregon for a while after college . . . which convinced me to join the Navy! Good pay, but all the ol' loggers were "stove up" as they say.

So you re-loaders, I'm thinking about getting in to this. Is there a "best" way to buy a kit that does 9mm, 45 acp, .223, .308, and 12 gauge?

Not the same . . . .

You could do all that stuff except shotgun on a standard single stage press, using different dies for each caliber. Single stage presses are slow, though. Not really a problem if you don't go through hundreds of rounds at a time.

Progressive presses are much more expensive, but faster.

Shotgun set-ups are totally different, requires different tools. Skeet and trap shooters generally use progressive presses; some of the new one's may be motorized. Different presses for different gauges.

(I'm dating myself here. Last time I reloaded brass ammo I weighed each charge, just like my daddy did).

Never cheap to get set up, but like any tools, if you shoot a lot you'll soon save enough to make up the difference.

NO........shot gun is seperate equipment. (oooops 205) I have spare dies I'll sell. .32, 45, maybe 9mm, .223 and .308........need to look at what I have. I also have a single stage RCBS Rock crusher.......old school.

To add to what Dan said...

If you're a beginning reloader you're probably better off using a single stage reloader. The old stand-by is an RCBS Rock Chucker press. You can do pistol and rifle with a Rock Chucker.

Here's a link for the Rock Chucker Kit. It has everything to get you started except dies.

If you shoot competitively, you'll probably want a progressive press. A lot of competitive shooters use Dillon Precision progressive presses.

If you start doing this, just remember to pay attention to what you're doing while reloading, especially with pistol rounds because it's easy to double charge a case with most pistol powders. Double charges are not good.

In the whole, it's probably cheaper to just buy loaded ammo. The best thing about reloading is customizing your rounds for your gun. Especially with rifle ammo.

Octoberfests take a while to lager out. it would be my first, but I have the huge temp controlled "Keezer" ready. The problem this time of year is the keezer gets too cold, and you really need a temp controlled heater in the freezer to keep things at ~55 deg.F. I'll get it started early spring com-padres!
