Re: Changes in 30 Years??

Same as boomtube 45yr reloading.

I look at the dies we have today bushing,bodyand custom,priming tools,measuring and the list goes on.

The internet has made information more easy to get you don't have to wait for a magaizne or smoke signals.

Need a good barrel,bullet and gunsmith they have come a long way.

Re: Changes in 30 Years??

30 years...I have only been reloading about a third of that time, but I did the first 5 years or so with 30 year old equipment so does that count?

I vote for micrometers on everything, neck dies, powder dumps, case trimmers, seater dies. They beat the heck out of the old, loosen the nut, turn the die a hair and try it again method.

ZINC WHEEL WEIGHTS!!!!

I know a lot of reloaders don't cast their bullets, and cast bullets are useless for long range, but it was nice to be able to have an almost free source of bullet material for plinking or short range hunting.
Some BPCR shooters would beg to differ on that, but agree that zinc WWs are a scourge.
