    Just had to post to say that I just deprimed and sized my first 50 brass ever (.45ACP) and am excited about rolling my own. :)

    Pistol calibers are fun and easy. What kind of set-up do ya got?

    Using Hornady dies that my uncle didn't use, and then a single state Lee Challenger press that my boss upgraded from so he gave me, and the Hornady reloading manual. Can't complain on the price of the equipment while I'm currently saving for a Dillon 550. I like starting on on the single stage so I can figure out wtf I'm doing. :)

    shooting your first reload is the most gut churning experience

    My first reload was a .308 Win in an NEF break-open rifle.


    I was a little scared.
