  1. Reloading
    In the effort to encourage myself to do more reloading in 2023 I am planning on moving my loader and the minimum accessories in from the garage to my office. I am limited in space and will have to build a new "bench" to mount the loader to. I plan to build a 4'x2' bench to mount the loader to...

    Hello, I have been trying to identify these wads for a while now and am not having very much luck. I was hoping some on here could help. To my best guess/research these are closest to a WAA12R but not the same. Any info would be very helpful. Thanks.

    Merry Christmas Folks and thank you for the helpful information you have provided this year. So, I have a MEC 9000 and have had consistency problems with my powder drop like I have read so many times here. My powder drops will range up to +/- .08 grains +/- .8 grains. I have done the...

    I am making a hanging mobile toy for my infant daughter out of shotgun shells (you can never start them too early). What size punch do I need to knock the primers out? To the same end, what solvent should I use to clean the inside out before running them through the sterilize cycle in the...

    A friend of mine in his 70s is loading for a teenager. 20 28 410. He offered him a MEC 600 Jr. For 28ga at a very good price. The kid turned it down! How does he tell him he's done loading for him, when he won't help himself? And yes we want to encourage the next generation to shoot. But when...

    This could be a dumb question so please bear with me here, just starting to reload shotgun shells and I'm not sure on how to calculate the correct amount of powder per shell, loading 2 3/4" 12ga #8 shot shells and I'm trying to get 1300 or slightly under fps. If anyone has a recipe they think...

    Vista Outdoor, the leading U.S. manufacturer of ammunition, announced earlier this year that "supply chain constraints and increases in our raw materials" will result in "price increases to help offset those rising costs." Price hikes will begin on April 1 for Vista Outdoor ammo brands...

    Looking for 100-500, 2.5", once-fired, .410 hulls. Prefer AAHS, maybe STS and Nitro, and would consider others. Please send me a PM if you have some available. Thanks!

    Just getting started out with reloading due to the lovely ammo shortage, any ways just curious if anyone has any reloading data for that powder in a 1 1/8 7.5 load. reloading into some federal top gun shells with the cci 209's and Winchester waa12sl wads, any help on this would be awesome and...

    I recently acquired a Ponsness Warren Multomatic Model 600. I am also new to reloading. As I’m searching for instructional videos on the PW 600, I’m getting the sense the PW 600 may not be the best starter reloader! I was really looking for a single stage press as a beginner, but the PW 600...

    I have an old Fenner hydraulic pump that is needing repair. However, I am running into trouble, at shops and online because the model and serial numbers are ineligible. Does anyone know the model number to the Fenner pump that came with the original MEC 8564 Hustler? This way I can locate parts...

    I guess I never really looked closely at the crimps on factory ammo. But today I opened a box of factory Remington Gun Club Target Loads and was surprised at the wide variety of crimps. I’m now thinking that I’ve been too hard on my reloads, pulling out too many. If these are acceptable, then...

    Has anybody tried loading Winchester super handicap powder in Federal paper hulls? If so where did you find load data?

    Looking for soft shooting powder for field use in older, lightweight guns. Will be loading 1 oz loads for less than 1200 FPS. Have always used PB for such, but like other good things, it has gone away. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Hey all, Sorry I’m pretty green at all the reloading stuff so any help is appreciated. Long story short I reloaded Win AA hulls and wads for a while with 700-x powder, 209 A primers, lead shot. Now I have to use steel shot (CA law unfortunately) and I’m trying to see if I can reload using the...

    Hey y'all, I have some left over stuff that I'm trying to use up, a little tight with money currently. I'll be reloading 20 gauge. I have Win AA hulls, CB1078-20 wads, 7.5 shot, Hodgdon Universal powder, and Federal 209a primers. Looking at hodgon's website there are a few loads that look like I...

    Is one brand of shot better than another? What does everyone prefer?

    Where are you guys getting shells and lead? My suppliers for factory shells, Sports Authority and Walmart don’t carry them anymore. Online retailers I’ve found are either exorbitant or out of stock. Now my club operator can’t get lead. What’s going on and what should we expect?
