    How many calibers?

    I started reloading less than 2 months ago. I began with 9mm and today added .40S&W. Easy transition since they are both very close in size and both use small pistol primers. How many calibers do you reload?

    As this is a general question--I voted for my three current rifle calibers. If/when I find a Lee original loader in 45acp, I might start in on the handgun calibers.

    Three for me. .45acp, .40s&w, and .44mag. I used to consider 9mm to cheap to bother reloading but the dramatic price increases the last couple of years have made me change my mind and will soon be investing in some 9mm dies.

    9mm, 38 special, 357 mag, .40 and .45
    I guess that means I load for 5.

    I use the Dillion 550B with the quick change setups. I have everything I need for that 6th one, except the gun. Once I have the gun, I will get the dies I need.

    Maybe (hopefully) a Rifle Cal? .308??? Was on my Christmas list but I guess I was on the naughty list this year.

    I write out my list sometimes - oughta keep a copy! Potentially way too many but the most common is probably five or so - ''usual'' handgun calls for most part.

    Total, judging by my collection of dies ....... probably 15 approx.

    10 cartridges here. Once you get the press, it's easy and cheap to pick up another caliber.
