    They sell all reloading supplies, I would always call ahead and pick up next day. You will hard pressed to find cheaper LEE reloading gear, or Hornaday bullets. Powder selection is priced good as well. I bought my 8lb jug of clays powder there and primers when I go through.

    Good to know maybe if tax return is as I plan I'll make a call and see if they have reloading kits in stock and make the trip out there to take a look and hopefully get a set up going to start reloading

    My Press is RCBS all my reloading tools are LEE, I do have 2 other Lee Presses but I primarily use them re-sizing cast lead rounds. I have had and still have RCBS/Hornaday dies but they are never used anymore and are a back up now. Lots of opinions of Lymon/LEE/Hornaday equipment and dies. For me, I can always get parts for LEE products and they are better distributed and in stock then the rest in Eastern Ontario.

    19D7D287-91DC-4102-B7E5-2F42F3D5B71A.jpgReloading can be a lot of trial and error due the various cartridge components involved. Many firearms prefer certain powders and loads. For example, I shoot a 30.06 and prefer the 180 grain Nosler partition bullet. When I got into hand-loading, I tried Winchester 760 powder and only managed to get 3” groups at 100 yards. I tinkered with that powder and eventually got fed up. The Nosler manual stated that the most accurate powder for that bullet was Reloader 22, so I gave it a try. I’m very happy that I did as I get half inch groups.

    The attached image is sideways, but at the time I took the photo, my rifle was roughly sighted-in 2” high at 100 yards. I flinched on the first shot, but the other 3 shots are touching:

    Good to know, planning on going to pick up a book or 2 this weekend and look into bullet gr for both calibers and see what the books say ahead of time and hopefully have a better idea of what powder to get in the next few weeks when I pick up the full supplies to get going.
