I reload for and shoot 45 ACP, .223 Remington, .30-06 and 8mm Mauser. I also shoot a .22, a 12 gauge shotgun, and a .50 Caliber Muzzle loader. I don't reload for the 12, as I don't shoot it enough to make it worth while, though, if I get a bird dog, which I am trying to do, I may start reloading for the 12 as I get into more bird hunting.

This isn't fair since I reload for alot of friends around here. First....nearly all common pistols. rifles: .17 rem, 220 swift, 223, 243, 257, 270, 7x57, 280 rem, 7mm08, 7mm STW, 7 mag, '06, 30-30, 300WM, 8x57mm, 8mm'06 and 35 whelen. Whew!!!! 7x57 is my favorite followed by '06 followed by 243 and 8x57. I reload more 243 than any other cartridge....only critters and WTD here in Northcentral, MO. Not many ultra mags yet thank God. Regards, Rick.

Well I reload everything I shoot so here goes the list, 38 spl, 357 mag, 44 spl, 44 mag, 45 acp, 223, 223AI, 257 rob, 6.5x55, 270 wsm, 307 win, 30-06, 35 whelen. I also load for some friends who didn't want to invest in the whole setup, here's that list, 22-250, 260 rem, 7mm-08, 7mm mag, 300 win mag, 8x57, 45-70 and 450 marlin. I think I like the 223AI, 257 and 6.5x55 the most for it versatility with different powders and bullet weights.

One of these days I'll need to get dies for the .223; I have 'em for everything else, except of course the rimfire.

Thanks fellows I thought that would be a fun question.I am retired now since 1996 and spend a day a week at the range some times 2 0r 3 days weather permitting.I have been reloading now for 50 + years and sure do have fun shooting.
If I could afford it I would have many more calibers to play with.With those long list some of you must be retired too.So you know how much fun I have.
The best to all of you and shoot straight.
