    All the best for your first try at reloading.
    Am thinking about it due to the local gunshop not keeping in what I need.

    happy reloading Trapper

    Keep us posted on your progress mate

    It's great, Trapper!

    You very quickly forget about the inital costs for material and kit, and thereafter have the illusion of free ammunition!

    Last night - no ammunition at tea time, by 8 o'clock I had 10 rounds of 243 and it didn't cost me a penny!

    New re-loading gear


    Just got mine last weekend (Lee Anniversary) and I've made and fired my first .243 rounds. (Will also do 25-06 later).

    First shot was a bit of a head trip - for a moment I thought about rigging up a remote trigger pull just in case - but I prevailed and didn't have any problems.

    Already I have determined my goal which is going to be around 41 to 42 grains of powder for a 100 grain sierra bullet. The 40 and 40.5 grain grouped around 2.5 inches and the 41 grain below 1.5 inch.
