would anyone consider reloading for someone else
"would anyone consider reloading for someone else "
I sure someone would consider it. ??
only if I know the person pretty well.. usually I make them help so they can eventually pick up the hobby themselves if they so choose...
What Lefty said.
Did at one time, but no more. Liability issues scare the beejebers out of me. If I charge for reloading services, it makes me a commercial business, which is not covered by my homeowners policy.
Not on a bet!
I have let a couple of close friends use my stuff with my direct supervision until they got their own set up.
If you are talking about selling hand loaded ammo you need an FFL (class 6 I think) for that.
I help a couple of friends reload their varmint ammo on one of my progressive presses. After I am done with a caliber and the press is all set up I let them load on it
Case of brew to get in the house maybe, but no cash transfer. And they have to be involved and not just sitting there watching.
Q:Reload for someone? A:Not a chance in hell. Q:Help someone get my gear setup to reload for there rifle and develop a good and safe load? A: Of course.
extremely rare for me! I have done a couple hundred rounds of stuff for my brother inlaw (basic 30-06 stuff) when he couldn't get his dies setup right (they were bad right out of the box). Now he's entering into the .338-06 adventure, and has never setup a case for fire forming; plus he's somewhat reluctant about it. I told him to get his hands on some new 30-06 brass and we'd build up some rounds to fire form. Then we'll set his dies up for his press off the fire formed cases. I also have promised to reload a couple hundred 22-250 rounds for a guy I know who promised me access to his 3500 acres he farms. That's about it! I may end up doing another batch of 22-250 for the farmer's brother as he told me he had about 1200 acres he'd let me use. These all will be mid range loads with 50 grain bullets. Nice thing about the 22-250, as the brass all came out of the same chamber, and will also be the same for his brother. The only othertime I can think of doing reloads was for a local cop that was on a shooting team that required the use of 168 grain bullets in a .308. I built him about a hundred rounds off a known accuracey load. (he won). The other guy was on the Army Reserve shooting team, and I did about a hundred rounds for him, and basicly taught him how to build rounds at the house. He also won, and I think this is the only time I've ever done ammo for an M14 rifle. That Marine could shoot the eyes out of a snake at 400 yards, and it's kinda funny that he ended up in the Army Reserves.
No & no!
I have in the past many years ago. Today not a chance, to many lawyers and lawsuits to go along with them. I would help someone get started though.
If one was licenced to reload or you would do it for someone what would a fair charge be for resizing , cleaning , trimming , priming , loading ; $.25 / load ?
First of all it would depend on cal. some take more powder than others, some a lot more, .223 vs .338 secondly depends on what you feel your time is worth. Unless of course they are providing all supplies, then $.25 would be a fair price IMO.
