The sexy workhorse 995. Famous tester of "tasco test to destruction" and all around pack mule. #2 on my all time "bada**" list

Now we just gotta get you making your own ammo! Next week! ;)
May not save any money (usual) but you can shoot 5 times as much for the same cost!
If I'm not mistaken, Hobbles gets about 1800 rounds of 9mm from 1 pound of TiteGroup powder,
which is around $25 here in Phoenix.

I relaod -06. 250 savage. And 45acp now. But i really like not policing brass when im shooting. I really love federal aluminum. Im always bouncing around so idk how cost effective it would be for me right now lol. But i for sure want to some day. All i have in 9mm now is the hi points i think. I wanna get a die for 7.62x25. I think that would be awesome! Make me some fancy rounds

I reload all mine except .380 and I should do those too. I stop in the desert where anyone has shot and pick up all their brass too. Tons of it. Now if I can get SPPs... lol

I've been getting S&B primers for $27/1000 at Cabela's and haven't had any issues with them.

Used a lot of S&Bs here and they've worked 100%. Have made some very consistent ammo with them.

Only had an issue twice with CCI. They are just a touch harder. Same base metal, but a nickel plate as I've been told. Had two FTF on a pistol that I know had a weak spring, but
it would fire other primers. New spring (33 cents) solved that issue. Other than that, I've never had a "primer issue". Had a couple that I didn't get seated and they FTF'd because they moved
when the pun struck them. That seated them and they both went bang on second strike.

Ok great info thanks. I use cci 22 and i bought a bunch of primers a few years back. Even used some 22 cci shorts recently in a new video and i like their products.
