A good friend of mine recently talked me into reloading my own ammo. After buying a LEE press and supplies I finally ran my first batch of reloads. I used Speer brass, Speer 180 FMJ, Winchester primers, and accurate #7 powder. I loaded my rounds with 8.7 to 9 grains of powder. If I get time this weekend I will go test the reloads out.

They look factory! Good job Slick and now we need a range report :thumbsup:

Wasn't hard at all, eh? Just requires some attention to details.

Sent you a PM.
