The labor is the one I am struggling with.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I think your question was answered

    I've reloaded for one person, one time, and I won't do it anymore. He wa happy with the loads and they worked fine but once the bullets left my possession I was always wondering if I made a mistake that would hurt someone. It's not worth it from a legal position either.

    I reload for my dad uncle and cousins. The only time that anything went wrong was a box of 7 mag that I got a little to happy with when seating the bullets and pushed the necks in a little. That was probably 5 years ago and when he shot them they just fireformed back to normal. With reloading for others I stay far away from max loads.
