Gentlemen I firmly believe that reloading is the only way your going to continue to enjoy your sport. I think it is prudent to stock up on all the supply's you can afford.

Mr. Pierce,
I agree 110%. I've also been scarfing up powder and primers! The time to act is now.

Wow Pete, that's a heck of a casting unit! I bet it's like running a Dillon progressive!

for large cal bullets 44,45 you can do 400+ a hour.smaller bullets I would say 500- 600 would be close.the blower that sits on top cools the sprue and the mold and this speeds things up.as you pull the handle back there is a steel rod that opens the spur plate and the bullets drop down one side of the divider and the cut spures in another.
I set this up on a old table and when you open the top drawer there is 2 old bead pans.one catches the bullets and the other the spurs.I bought the table for 10.00 at a yard sale. :D .I can take some better pics later if you wish.
I still do alot of handcasting for my rifles but for pistol this is pretty neat.before I retired I didn't have the time to cast and the wife and I shot almost every weekend.this was the only way I could keep a good bullet supply going.
for sizing I use a star lubsizer.pricey but the best and fast.
