    Im not into reloading but something small and portable like this could be something good to have in the bug out bag.

    I'm not sure.

    The review says that the 22 reloader has charge information for Pyrodex too.

    If this review is right, don't think its really worth the time ot effort. However....

    That's not a review, it's a different, 100% DIY, system. Same basic idea, but he's using wax plugs, not bullets. Doesn't look like his measure system is particularly accurate either. He has to manufacture his own priming compound which takes forever.

    I was looking at these kits a good while back . It seemed the kit could be picked up on ebay cheaper than the website . http://22lrreloader.com/

    Main thing everyone I found online that has used the kit said the mold is pretty poor quality and that the metal handles required thick gloves that made it hard to manipulate while casting . The other thing that was was stated often was that if the cases were not going to be used in the same gun / chamber you really need to purchase the resizing die .

    I was originally looking because I was going to buy a NAA cap and ball pistol and after much looking for a bullet mold It came down to 22lrreloader and http://oldwestbulletmoulds.com . They have double cavity molds for 40 grain lr ,29 grain for short plus a mold for .60 grain aguila .

    HUMMMM?? Sorry 'bout that, Kirk. I thought they were the same kits. I now see the compound and powder in your post.

  10. So what are they using for the primer? And will it still be close to $8rd when you can't find lead to cast?
     
  11. Never done any reloading so I am going to ask what may be a dumb question.

    With this gadget are you using new cartridges or spent cartridges?

    Spent Cartridges. Just make sure you clock the rims for a new
    hammer strike. Kinda problematic for Semi-Auto.

    Kirk's a year late and a $100,000 short,
    I posted about that system a long time ago! :rofl:
    In Fred Flinstone's thread...

    Something NEW in the process, that they did not have before:

    I emailed them last year, and they were not
    recommending "dent removal"... :confused:
