    Hi there, folks. A lot of you are interested in training that's a fact. But buying lots of ammo for training isn't cheap... How do you cut costs, without cutting corners or quality?

    Answer: Save your brass, and reload it!!! It's a fact that you can get started reloading at today's prices (27 Aug 13) for less than one hundred fifty (yes I said less than, $150) dollars.

    I've been reloading a long time, and have a lot of experience, know how, and contacts when it comes to reloading ammo. I got started reloading for the same reason 95% of folks do. I wanted to shoot more, but couldn't afford to spend more money.

    If you have questions? Please ask? I'm serious when I say... "When it comes to guns, safety and reloading? The only dumb question is the one you're too afraid to ask!!!" I don't want anyone getting offended, but if you're serious, just ask, we'll treat you fair, and well, and give you straight upfront, and honest answers. And if I don't know the answer to your question, I'll tell you straight up. I don't know, but I'd betcha a lot of money, I can find the answer.

    Hello Jim, I am new to reloading. I have a lee press and want to reload 10 mm,45 auto, 9 mm, 40 cal, and .223. The press I have should do all of the above However, setup is a bitch. I have watched videos and such but still fine tuning it is difficult. Anyway the question I have is can I use one powder for all calibers or do I have to get different types for each. I hear so many different views and the book I have seems to just want to sell you everything. So what is your view? I have in my possession Unique and it seemed to work well on 45 auto. Should I use it on my other calibers and do you have any formulas that work best for each of those calibers?

    James, nicely written question, sir...

    The simple answer is yes you can in fact use your Unique for reloading ALL of your handgun powders, that you've listed. I also use it for 357 and 44 Magnums.

    But (speaking on a general basis) no sir, you should NOT use it for your .223 Remington firearms. One of the most popular and recommended powders is a smokeless gunpowder named Varget. No sir, I haven't used it, ever. But I know there is an absolute plethora of reloading data for .223 Rem and Varget.

    To address your question that you've asked me for a "recipe" as to what I like in the calibers you've listed: Rather than giving you an exact recipe of say:

    x.x grains of Unique
    200 gr Cast Semi-Wadcutter
    Remington Brass
    Remington LPP

    Let me merely recommend sticking with published data, sir. Stick with that, work up your loads safely, and you shouldn't ever go wrong.

    Jim
