Thread: Variation required for Reloading???

    Variation required for Reloading???

    Guys,

    I am thinking of starting to home load. It might be a silly question but do you need a variation, or something else, to your FAC to allow you to buy the components required to home load?

    I would like to re load in .243 and .300 win mag, can anyone recommend a decent starter kit??

    NO but think from question you need someone to teach you about reloading and talk to people who know how before you go any further it can be very dangerious if you get things wrong

    ...but you may need an increased allowance to buy boxes of bullets - I found out the hard way and had to send in variation for that!..oops.

    +1.

    If you need to ask for a variation go for 500 buy 600 hold.

    Target ammo is not a problem, but expanding requires a holding allowance before purchase in most areas.

    Buying 500 means that you can buy a large quantity from the same batch (in the case of loaded ammo) and that will hopefully give consistency.
