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.
That Hornady is a nice press, now I understand why you were looking for lube alternatives. If you can find one clean enough to size rifle brass on the progressive you'll be golden. If not you may look for a cheap single stage to size on, then run primed brass thru the Hornady.

I can understand reloading expensive rounds like my .458 socom for example.
But on the cheaper stuff, how long does it take to offset the cost of tools and supplies to reload? Just seems like you aren't saving much in the end unless it's a very long run.

I can load up 500 rounds of 45 ACP in a couple hours, $55 for 500 plated RN, $15 500 primers, $10-$15 powder. Total $80 or about half the cost of new ammo. 9 MM you don't save quite as much, rifle is good savings and for bench rest kind of accuracy you have to reload. I started back in the 80's and got most of my tools wholesale since I had my FFL back then. I'm guessing my bench paid for itself many times over. Today you could set up a bench with a Lee starter kit with a turret press for $200.
Depends on how much you shoot and what you shoot if it's worth it.

I guess $200 for equipment isn't too bad.
I'll likely never use enough ammo to justify it, unless I win the lotto and buy lots of land. Because I'm not paying the outrageous range prices around here.

I try to reload everything except 9mm or .380... I also reload for the blackout, which is a huge lifesaver. most rifle rounds that I shoot(.308,300,6.5,.25-06,22-250) are all running over a dollar a round for factory I can make them for less than half. the biggest initial cost is press and brass. I use a lee turret, I started out with this as a beginner. Now I want a progressive! but for rifle reloading the turret press Is the best IMO. Living in the soon to be liberal state of AZ, I try to go shooting as much as possible, except fire season

For those who have to deal with CA.... anyone have good/bad for these little car safes?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00PI...NML&ref=plSrch

I know it's not foolproof or as good as ripping out the seat and building a safe but for the on the pinch? My job takes me to state and federal government buildings often so I need something I can slide under he seat in a pinch etc. I can't modify the vehicles either :/.

Ps the sigp238 carries like a dream!

Not up on calis laws, but when it comes to safes, or storage, I prefer something I can get into quickly if I have to. Biometric or even the 4 key combo button ones over an actual key. Trying to insert the key and turn it under high stress could prove fatal if someone was say attacking you at the vehicle. They aren't that much more either for a bio or combo.

I agree. This is more because I have to walk in to quite a few government buildings where a ccw is prohibited. When I drive my carry is always under my leg to reduce draw time. This was more like a deterrent to the run of the mill window peeper while I was in a meeting etc. We normally have gated parking faculties with guards though. I know a experienced thief with a pick kit, some times or even a high strength cutter could make work but just curious what others used.

Im 99% sure im getting the gun vault for my 99 f250 though it looks nice and slides in the center console so its hidden too.

-99 F250, 4X4, 6.0 trans cooler, 08 mirrors, 05 grill, AIS Intake, lvl kit, JW Vbody, cncfab hpop lines, WW2.

Interested in learning something new?
