Dont think I’ll ever pick up a .375, but wouldn’t mind the 300PRC, have the rest. Suppose never say never...
Yeh for sure “ never say never”
i have been a handloader since my dad taught me when i was 14 , i think he wanted me to take over loadiing for both of ur shooting lol.
over the next 35 yrs i accumulated 34 sets of dies in my loading room .
i had more dies than my wife had shoes ! Winning !
2017 my house burns to the ground . I got to start over , saying to myself NO WAY im gonna have that many cals again , i can keep it to 5 rifle cals and 5 pistols and can hunt or shoot anything in side that limit !
while that last statement is a true fact ................4 yrs later i have 8 sets of dies and 35 rifles and pistols .
why isnt there a support group for gun junkies .
i deff have a problem !

my point is a had 2 chances to keep it simple ,which the title of this thread sums it up , and i failed miserably ! Lol

I’m on about year 3 myself overall so a new reloader and thankfully only at 5 die sets so doing well with my addiction by most standards it sounds haha. A friend introduced me to the custom rifle world and I have to constantly remind myself I need to finish the last before ordering parts for the next...this may be my deepest rabbit hole yet! I’m really pressuring myself to keep it simple, I was hoping to stick to 3 main calibers, get very proficient with all 3 but with this platform along with my buddy starting another build, I’m struggling to not start the next and I’m still waiting on the action of the most current to send off to the builder. The lack of supply these days is about the only thing holding this junkie back!

I know how you feel I am presently finishing up one build, I have one I am presently gathering parts for and I just specked out a new build today. 🤣🤣🤣 But I am with you, brother! I don’t have a problem! Nope it’s definitely not a problem! Not a problem...😂😂😂
You wouldn’t know how to get your hands on a stretch 16 barrel would you???😁
