I just recieved dies and brass for my 338LM I'm waiting on. Dies for my 10mm and 40SW (a couple new toys)are on their way.
I buy 17HMR ammo, wish I could load my own, but its cheap enough on midsouth. I shoot that quite a bit. I also buy factory personal defence ammo, for legal purposes. My CCW instructor said the best reason to tell the prosecutors why you had a specific brand was because "prosecutors and my local sherrifs dept carry that ammo." I'll buy a box here and there for pistols, never for rifles. I never had gotten into shotshell reloading. I haven't been bird hunting in a long time.

Hopefully soon for a .204 Ruger and .25-06 Rem which are on my wish list.
And for some odd reason I have never decided to reload for my .45 ACP or S&W .40. I guess I don't shoot them very often enough to do much reloading.
If you go for the 25-06 make it an ackley improved it is the next fastest under the 257 weatherby with 87 grain bullets only by 60 fps and 10 grains less of powder. With a 85 grain Nosler partition will kill any deer you want.
