Now that ammo is the price of a new car you might rethink that?

Yes, it is still high priced here. Right now I'm paying $220 for 1000 rounds of 9mm, delivered to the door.

This is a wood tipped Swedish training bullet, 6.5x55 caliber Lapua brass rounds
I pulled the wood, emptied the swede powder, re necked the brass
and reloaded with imr 4895 and hornady 140 grain ballistic tips
3000 rounds

I have some of that practice ammo , but it is loaded with a copper cup . Looks like a gas check seated backwards .

Have you shot any of it yet ? I heard the brass for the practice rounds was the 2nds from the production of " normal " ammo ?

I had thought of loading some with reduced loads & cast bullets .

Best of luck , :-)

This winter I plan on setting up my reloading area and trying to learn how to do it. I am sure I will have some questions. I am going to take advantage of living in a place that snows and get some hobbies done.
