I have finally gotten my reloading room the way I want it and have spent the last 8 or 9 months casting my own boolits (bullets) and working up loads for every rifle pistol and shotgun I have.
Sometimes I could get a certain bullet weight to shoot right so I would go up or or down in weight.
I built a pretty good stock pile of ammo for each gun.
I did it for a few reasons.
Ammo and components got scarce there for a while
It is a lot cheaper than factory rounds
It is good plinking ammo
The bigger bullets are great for hunting.
Does anyone else cast and spend a lot of time at the range?
How much ammo do you keep around? Stock piles or just what you need for the next hunt or trip to the range?
Here are some pics.
doing it all now. I cast my first bullets on memorial day, about 450 .452 230gr bullets. reloaded them and have about 100 left.
