Hello,I am into Mil-surp weaponry mostly.I enjoy anything that I can do outdoors. I am within the past 4 years retired due to my medical health and cannot do as much as I used to but I still ENJOY all that I can! I Love to fish, and meet others with Disabilities like myself of whom try to enjoy life the best that they can and live it to the fullest! Love traveling when I can as well. I must admit I did not know that Tom had this type forum and I look forward to meeting others of like mind. Soon I hope to get into learning more about reloading!! That is one more reason I came to the Forum as I thought it would be a great outlet as well and may learn some new things. I am open minded and will take the time to let others teach me.

One rifle that I look forward to getting ok well 2 more! I want a CZ-512 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kViao4-UTkY) and then the newer Caracal CC10 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol5-zkF2dco)to be released this summer! ANy 22 Mag guys out there? I wonder if anyone made it to Shot Show 2013 this year? I saw ArchAngels new SKS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibGxXmqoaao)stock and wondered if anyone say them up close?

Hope that you all have a great day and I look forward to any help!

Welcome to the forums and I hope your medical health still allows you to do all the things in life you enjoy doing.

I've started reloading a year ago and it's really not that hard. I enjoy doing it for the search of making a great round and saving some money. These days, finding the the components is pretty hard (primers) to re-load. I'll be more than happy sharing some do's and don'ts that I found out myself when you decide to start reloading.

Hello and Thanks! I am trying me BEST to stay healthy as possible and am currently doing what your statement in your signature states as well! The fourth word! :rolleyes: Well by problem is here in Texas it is soooooooooooo hard to find a range that does not allow Milsurp Ammo!! So they want you to buy the Wolf and that would be ok if they could keep the 5.45x39 in stock! I have watched MANY videos of guys reloading steel cased ammo and it working! But it is hard to fine anyone doing the MM I just mentioned. Most are and can do the 7.62x39. I just bought myself the VEPR in 7.62x54R and would love to try reloads on that and there is tons of stuff for that but not much for the 5.45. I am trying to find out what the EXACT MM vs caliber bullet size would be and go from there. So far it is estimated at a 221 caliber? Plus I want to do 9mm as I plan on buying one of those newer Caracal CC10 that are coming out this summer! I am rather stoked about that one! As this way I can keep most ALL my weapons within then same caliber ranges.My current problem is I do not know to go with what brand? LOL there is so much out there! I am kind of looking at the Lee Turret Press (http://leeprecision.com/classic-turret-press-kit.html) recently as it looks affordable and has tons of components.

I'm not much into rifles but I'm a handgun nut so I really only reload 9mm, 45 acp, and 380. I started with a Lee Deluxe turret press (around $120.00ish) and found it to be a nice little press to learn on. For Handgun ammo, the dies are about $50.00 for the set per caliber for Lee.
