Big bullets, primers, cases for small eyes.

What a joy reloading .44 Magnum and .45 Colt. Easy to handle everything and I can see it all very clearly.
I'd sure hate to be reloading .25 ACP!

My order of 225gr Acme bullets came in the other day.  Now I’m just waiting for my dies to come from Midway.  Then I will be able to enjoy reloading .45 LC as well.

The reloading press has made the lights over my bench seem dimmer, though. Strange.  I was sorting through some miscellaneous brass the other day. I came across a few .25 ACP and 5.7x28 and I don’t think I would want to try reloading for those.  Yet, I still would like to get a .22 Hornet someday, which would be equally frustrating due to its size.

There sure is a lot to fumble with when reloading, so when one fumble point is minimized it is greatly appreciated.

For the Hornet and other small calibers, you might want to obtain a seating die that has the bullet alignment collet. Hornady dies have it, as do some bench rest grade dies (Bonanza, etc.)
