The normal stuff...

Do you like it, would you buy it again things?

I like all of Beretta's stuff and have been thinking about it and CX4 in 40sw also. I am doing some 6.0 work for the gun shop I buy from and it looking like a trade deal of sorts.

It works well....but it's pretty "plastic'y", kinda cheap feeling. The 100 might not be made that way, I've never held one.

Anybody reload? I just set up my press, all I need yet is powder and primers.

Has anyone used the DIY case lube with lanolin and alcohol? What are your thoughts?

Word on the net is this mix works really well.

I reload everything I shoot, couldn't afford to go to the range otherwise. Keeping everything as uniform as possible is the key to consist accuracy. When I was bench rest shooting I bought 5 lbs H4895 powder, 1000 168 gr Siera OT Match and 1000 CCI match primers at a time so everything would be from the same lot. Weighed and sorted brass, deburred flash holes, & chanfered. Once I worked up my best load, I had a very consistent sub 1/2 MOA load.
For general plinking I use a progressive press for pistol ammo, I decap the brass before cleaning, then I size and prime by hand with a Lee Auto Prime, I never felt comfortable priming on the upstroke with the priming station under the powder drop.
Single stage press for rifle, I full length size for ARs and lever guns and neck size for my bolt actions (usually). I've always just used an old Lyman lube pad and throw em back in the tumbler after sizing. I put em neck down in a loading block before priming so I can look at the flash hole to make sure no tumbling media got stuck in there. I use a Lyman #55 powder drop, seat to length, then thru the Lee factory crimp die.
Check the brass length once in awhile when FL sizing, they'll stretch after a couple loads. (Bench Rest got checked after each match, even though they don't stretch just neck sizing. Consistency!)
I picked up the Lee factory crimp dies for 5.56, .308, 9mm and 45 acp, they work sweet. I moved everything over in the progressive press since I size seperatly and run the factory crimp in the last station, it kinda sizes the ammo as it crimps so no bulges to stop an auto loader.

Try a Mini 14 or Mini 30, American made, wood & steel, and every bit as dependable as an AK. Plus the Ranch rifle comes with Ruger rings so optics are easy

Reloading will be new to me, been reading and watching videos for info.

I'm at the range twice a month, but throw in the kids and wife and my ammo supply drops fast!

I built a wet tumbler with parts I had laying around, only cost was the stainless media and 5gal bucket. The bucket is too large, will be switching out to 6" or 8" pvc.

That'll work nice!
The biggest thing when starting out (anytime) reloading is to avoid distractions when you're at the bench. Keep good records too, I use 3 x 5 cards
When I was shooting bench rest I started out weighing my charges, I bought a bunch of flip cap prescription bottles and weighed up enough for a match and I would reload at the range. Didn't take long to figure out that my old Lyman #55 powder drop was accurate enough to just throw charges and spot check with the scale. Almost everyone at the range was throwing charges too.
The Lee Auto-disk is nice for pistols if you use their powder thru expanding die, lets you drop powder as you expand the case mouth. There's no way to knock it out of adjustment either since it works off volume. I like Lee tools, even though they're less expensive that doesn't mean they're "cheap". And they're the only one that has the factory crimp die, I love that die!
Stay focused and enjoy the new hobby.

Are you gonna use a single stage, turret, or progressive press? Or all 3 like me
Here's a pic of my bench.

Here's a pic of my bench.

I went with the Hornady LnL progressive. I decided to reload because shooting factory 300blk subsonic was a hit or miss with keeping the rounds from going supersonic. All my firearms are short distant calibers, here in PA with thick woods, we rarely see over 100yrd unless your field hunting.


About time, my forth form1 suppressor was approved today, submitted 7/11!!!! My first one only took 66days, 2nd took 166 days, and 3rd took 240 days.

Now need to submit form1 for SBR.

Any of you used PSA uppers? Considering tossing one on my FMK lower. Something like this. Give me something to do while I figure out my escape from Commifornia. And can build my Stag lowers with our BS regulations.
