Iíve not done any reloading in quite a while, but when I do itís the following:

9mm
.38spl
.357 magnum
.45acp
.45LC
.454 Casull


Thatís all I load for my personal use. I cast most of the bullets for the above, with the exception of the .454 Casull; I stick with jacketed bullets for it. I do keep brass, dies, and a very small number of bullets for .44 magnum, .223, .30carbine, .300 blackout, .308, and .22TCM, but donít load them. Someday maybe (which is why I save the brass), but not so far.

Even though I live in a small city, I find that there is a very limited source locally for reloading components. I like to keep enough reloading components handy for 2 years shooting, because of past periods of shortages.

Definitely. Having extra on hand means I can sit out any shortages or price spikes.

only 3 are necessary for the wife

9x21, and only very rarely, 9x19, and 223 (very rarely) 223 ball is so cheap and components are so expensive that it's not worth loading practice ammo. The only reason 9x19 is worth reloading is that she casts her own bullets. 9x21 ammo can't be had any other way.

What gun(s) use 9x21?

MOST of us like shooting different calibers, sometimes even do it for fun! Today took the 6 1/2 in. 45 LC out along with a 4in one. And a Model 14, Model 17, Model 19.

Right now only 5.56/.223.

Once I get things lined out it will be back to a long list as usual with .308Win, .45ACP, .44mag or maybe .454Cas. instead. .30-30 , .357mag and then I'm going to get into reloading 12ga 3.5" ammo.
