Default Is There a Reloader Available?

So my question / thought is, since ammo prices are goofy right now, would it be reasonable to find someone to make a up a batch or two of reloads?

Thoughts?

Reloading components are as hard, or harder to get now than ammo, and if anything, the prices have gotten goofier.

Pm sent on a guy that will work up a load and give you the load data or he can supply the ammo on a as needed basis afterwards.

Unles you have a license it is illegal to reload for someone else for profit.

If you bought from someone selling reloads that does not have license above, would you as a buyer be violating any law?

No, but youíre gambling with your own well being. A lot of morons out there donít know what theyíre doing. I personally donít have an issue with it as long as the loader is competent.

If anyone wants to buy the components and pull the levers I have the best equipment money can buy, I’ll gladly show you how to do it and set the equipment up but your pulling levers and punching the buttons while I watch

This is so incredibly true. Unfortunately I had to learn the hard way after having a guy I considered a friend, load for me. First couple batches were decent. Last batch was horrible, inaccurate, unclean and as a result, we parted ways. I almost posted a thread about it because I couldnít believe how it all went down. He still has a box of my bullets that are currently impossible to find. Iím just going to have to let that one go.
