Default Ammo help

Seeing all the ridiculous prices on ammo I figured Iíd try to help anyone local to me. If youíre able to find your own powder/primers/bullets and itís a caliber I load for, Iím willing to show basic reloading and allow you to borrow equipment. Itís not as difficult as many make it, unless youíre really looking for the best of best load then it becomes pretty tedious. Iím in Copperas Cove and enjoy showing the new hobby around. Iíve helped a few on this site by building them some ammo. Got a place in Lampasas we could shoot test loads to make sure it functions and is satisfactory on accuracy. PM me if this seems doable for some. Iíve got a crap ton of .308 brass too so if thatís a caliber you want I could help out.

I could sell/trade for some pistol primers. Sitting pretty good on them.

Man. I wish there was someone near me that could do the same lol. GREAT gesture. Iíve been thinking about posting and asking if someone nearby would help me start. Using a friend to load for me now but I often feel like Iím a burden.

I have six friends that I load for.

As long as they give me plenty of lead time, it's no burden. It's what being friends is all about.
They buy the components, I supply the know how and the labor.

Sounds awesome. But a bit of a drive for me, not that it wouldn’t be worth it. I’m positive it would be, maybe sometime!
I bought some supplies(powda, primer, boolits. Current day value unknown but not for sale) and press(hornady APA) several years ago but I still need to buy many dies.
Between building arrows, boolits, and surf fishing I’m split on where my budget goes(minus impulse buys). Though I’m very set on fishing tackle for all the oceans and have been since I was a punk.
