"Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it".
Words to live buy.
If the world goes to the pansy liberal s you can always barter .
I am looking at getting a reloader and supplies so I can load my own .45 ACP rounds as well. Where would you suggest looking for supplies online?
I got a call that the SR1911 I'm waiting for came in to my friend's range on consignment for $700. Used, like new. :emotions34:
I'm guessing the seller bought it from the LGS around here that had it advertised new for full retail ($880). :whymewhyme::facepalm:
No thanks. Not when I can buy it on GB for $610 NIB + $25 shipping +$5 transfer. :drool2:
Counter offer. Pay cash. I can usually get a few bucks knocked off when paying with the green stuff. Doesn't hurt to ask and you'll still be patronizing your local gun guy.
I like and recommend the Lee Classic Turret. It has four die positions and can be used as a progressive or single stage machine. If you buy it as a kit you get the reloading manual and a number of other pieces you'll need.
Others will say you need a Dillon, Hornady or RCBS which are great machines but I find you get more for your money with Lee. Take a look at this kit and see if it's a good starting point for you. Midsouth is also a good place for supplies. They have good prices and didn't gouge while the scare was on. Things are still difficult to find. The example below is low stock so you might want to act pretty fast. It is an excellent price. Just add some .45acp dies to it and your consumables (primers, powder, projectiles) and you'll on your way.
I sweep up all brass at the range that no one is claiming. At this point I have close to 50 pounds of 9mm brass and I sold all of my 9mm guns.
I am stocking up on 9mm brass because once I can find a S&W Model 986 then I will start reloading it. The 986 is S&W new 9mm revolver.
