I've got a Rock Chucker with .223 dies for building my custom rifle rounds :biggrin:, and a buddy and I have invested in a Dillon 650 for pistol ammo, currently loading .45 ACP and we will be starting shortly to reload .357 Sig. At the rate we are going, we might start reloading 9mm, as that is what I prefer to shoot in competitions. At one time we shot 4 competitions a month, at about 150 rounds per, and usually 400 to 500 rounds of practice each month, usually about a 1000 rounds a month. We can't do that any more, which is unfortunate, because it was a lot of fun.Eric if you find ammo too expensive consider a reloading press such as the Rock Chucker single stage and brewing your own ammo. Costs will go down and accuracy will go up. Each gun seems to prefer a slightly different load, and once the optimum load has been determined, ragged holes will become the norm, at least with rifles.
