Getting all my stuff set up to reload for the 30-06 Apex. What a mess this stuff is and not mention a pain in the ass! Makes me like muzzle loading more and more

FG there is nothing hard about it. I have reloaded everything from 22 Hornet to 460 weatherby to 50 BMG, and is not hard at all. It is little time consuming, but once you everything prep it is a breeze.

I am getting setup to reload 10 gauge for turkeys and that has me scratching my head, but now rifles are second nature. Everything from 218 Bee to 300 Win Mag here. I love it, using a single stage classing Lee Turret Press and Lee Dies.

30-06...simple....grab some varget and 150 gr hornady sp and WLR primers....I prefer remington brass.

Takes only a few minutes to load a box of 20.

Fg get you some acc 2700 powder or h4350 work up your load from start data watch for pressure signs when you get up to around a grain or 2 from max data you will have power and accuracy. ps I use mag primers with the 2700 ball powder its harder to light, but with that combo stay at least a 1 or 2 gains from max data due to the mag primer.

I love reloading! I am old school though- I use LEE CLASSIC LOADERS for my rifles (30-06, 30-30, and .308w) & pistols (9mm & 45acp) and a LEE LOADSALL for 12ga & 20ga. Also handload 12ga & 20ga steel.
As a matter of fact, I think I will go out and do some reloading so I will be ready to light up the range when I get over my current problem.

It is a labor of love - but worth it. It is a useful tool to tune a rifle to a specific load. It came in real handy when I dropped a 10 and a 5 pointer a few months ago with a 270 at 402 yards.

What got me into reloading was a Winchester feather wt. in 325wsm and a BLR in 358win. I could not find any ammo or brass at the time for the 358 so I had to resize 308 brass to 358 and the price of the 325 ammo was high even when they first came out. I love handloading so much that I have my bench and all the stuff in my back bedroom. bounce
