I make up lots of ammo for my wildcat and other cartridges - each one fits into a special application and need using a particular rifle, scope, bullet, powder and so on. Availability of components is a big factor and being able to make up my own ammo helps with some shortages.

All this is done on a 37 YO Rockchucker press.

Last trip into the local gun store showed me enough fixings to make up 6.5-06 loads - .6.5 140 gr bullets, .270 W brass, H1000 powder, and Rem 9 1/2 primers. They had no .30-06 or .308 brass, no .308 bullets except for some 200 gr match bullets, no H4350, Varget, IMR 4064 or powders well suited for .308 or .30-06, no 7mm bullets, no .270 bullets, no .224 or 6mm bullets except for expensive bonded core & mono metal types.

The 6.5-06 and .20 Practical are examples of the benefits of handloading during these times.
