I reloaded 797 rounds of .40 S&W this month. It was all 180 grain Montana Gold JHP to be used for practice at indoor ranges. This was not nearly as much as I had hoped for. Things have been very busy on a variety of fronts and I just didn’t have the time to reload as much as I wanted. I did most of my practice with a .22 pistol instead of the .40.
This brings my lifetime reloaded ammunition totals to:
223: 4,813 rounds.
30.06: 756 rounds.
300 WIN: 1,591 rounds.
40 S&W: 83,504 rounds.
45 ACP: 2,007 rounds.
9 mm: 21,641 rounds.
Total: 114,312 rounds
I’m thinking about getting into reloading.
Used to reload shotgun shells when I was young.
My buddy got a reloader for xmas and we made great use of it.
Now days I’m looking at loading 9mm, 45acp, and 5.56 or 223.
Curious why you reload 223 over 5.56?
None of my reloading manuals (Hodgdon, Hornady, Sierra, Speer, and Vihtavuori) have 5.56. They are rather old but I first started reloading for my AR in 1998 and I don’t remember if I even tried to find 5.56 loads or dies. I now have these dies and loads and haven’t considered 5.56.
