9mm, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .41 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .45 Colt, .45 ACP, .223, 30/30, .308, and 30/06. I don't think I forgot any.
I reload .38/.357's & .45's. I use a Dillon SDB and It's cool. It's a hobby with in a sport. I enjoy it.
I would enjoy reloading .12ga shotgun shells. It's just hard to spend hundreds on reloading equipment when you can buy them so cheap.
It don't cost a whole lot to get into rifle and pistol reloading. I used handloaders for years and a few years ago, moved up to the Lee Turrent press. I like it because you can change the Turrent with the dies in it, and don't have to bother the dies. For a couple of hundred anyone can get a pretty good start into reloading. On some Ammo you don't save much, but a lot of people enjoying reloading. It is more accurate, and can be taylored to your gun. For those that has extra time, and like shooting, I highly recommend trying it. There are good books, and a lot of Info on the Internet on how to do it.
Keith you don't reload to just save money. I figured it will take about 2yrs to pay for my reloading gear on the money I saved. It's a hobby all by it's self. What is real neat is to work up your own load for the gun you have. You would see what I mean if you would give it a try. All guns have a sweet spot. You can't always get it with factory ammo. Your gun might be a good shooter on factory ammo, but a great shooter on your reload. Well good luck and good shooting.
Good going Baldy. We'll talk him into it yet.

That's always been my take on it too.
Right now only 32 H&R magnum and 38spl/357mag. Hope to go to 8mm, 7.62X54R, 7.62X39 and 223REM.
I've been loading since 1970. :D I started with a Rock Chucker, bought one of the first Dillon Square Deals and an RL1050.
I see why you drink the Blue Cool Aid 2400. I am sold on them myself. One day down the road I am going to pick another SDB Dillon. One for large primers and one for small. I want to start to do some other calibers. I'll be bugging you again my friend.
Lets see I reload for 40 S&W, 480 Ruger, 45 ACP, 10mm, 357 Sig, 44 Mag,357 Mag, 32 Mag, 45 Colt, 243, 204, 260, 308, 7.5X55 Swiss, 7mm Mag, 7mm-08, 300 WSM, 223, 7.62X39, 270, 30-30, 7.62X25 Tokarev, 8mm Mauser, 12 Guage, 20 Guage, and 28 Guage.

Thanks, 2400, for the info-got it yesterday- I owe you one!!
Glad to help. :D
Been reloading since the early 60's . 20 something handgun, shotgun and rifle calibers.
Presently trying to work up a load for RugerI S ,405 winchester. Could use some suggestions.
Reloading shot shells needn't be all that expensive. I recently purcahased a Pacific DL-105single stage reloader from EBAY for around $50. It's slow, but gets the job done.
The Lyman Shot Shell manual will get you going. Once fired hulls are fairly plentiful.
