Not sure if this is the right place to make forum suggestions but I would love to see a reloading section here in the forum as I know it ties into the self-sufficiency and shooting communities and is a great hobby in and of its self.  Figured I would drop the suggestion and see if anyone was interested in the idea.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Maybe PM an administrator (Rob Henderson or mikejulietpapa) and see what they think. Reloading could make sense under the "Self Sufficiency and Preparedness" section or the "Armory" section.

I agree with LongHaul, give the admins a PM and see if anyone salutes the idea.

I like it... I know I would use it!

Excellent place to put it too.

Love the Idea

 

So until such time as there is a new section:

 

Running a Dillon 650XL with most of the wiz bang on it and an RCBP rockchucker single stage for the good stuff.  I've setup but not shot 3 OCW sets for 2 different rifles (different primer between the two sets for the same rifle) and literally loaded thousands of rounds of 9mm and 45 ACP off the Dillon.

Do the right thing, even when no one is looking.

My foray into reloading was MUCH shorter and less productive than I anticipated.

Without solid instruction and a surplus of supplies it just wasn't going to work for me.

 

I've placed my stuff up for sale on a local Facebook guns/ammo classified page (where I found it to begin with) in hopes to recoup my money.

If anyone is interested here is the post:

B3dLam, I'm not totally done with it.

If I don't sell it I have no problem keeping it until I am ready, but I just don't have a timeframe right now.

It's not official but I think my reloading plans are on the back burner as I have been offered a nice Kimber Target 1911 for the package... 

Considering I gave up a $600.00 96A1, for a $700.00 reloading kit in exchange for a $900.00 1911... I may be the big winner here =)

Yeah, before you know it some guy will be begging for you to take his HK USP .45 with a suppressor in exchange for whatever you have.
