I moved my RCBS single stage LEE single stage for crimping and my Redding powder thrower and Lyman electronic Scale back to the shop to load 45's when I'm out here and load 9mm in the house. My Brother in law started going to the range with me now that he has got a conceal carry licence and a SAR 9mm I don't know if I can keep up with his shooting he puts at least 3 to 4 rounds down range to my every one I finally got him to start keeping track of how the bullets done in his pistol. The pistol shoots well but won't group like my CZ85, PT 92, or my RIA 1911 9mm it only has a 3.8 inch barrel but it puts them close enough to make a nice little CC gun it's not inaccurate it just don't hold as tight of a group as my longer barreled pistols. It almost turning into a job trying to keep up with both his and my shooting and I don't want that I've got him punching out primers before cleaning and that helps. This is my get away and I enjoy it just going at my own pace if I start feeling pressure there goes the fun

I know how you feel, A buddy and I both shoot .45 Colts in Cowboy Action and go through several hundred rounds a week during the season. But I'm doing the reloading on my single stage RCBS press and he is buying the components. Most of the time I cannot keep up on the reloading during the summer so I now have several thousand I load in the winter. This has been getting too much for me so I ordered a Dillon 650 and should be getting it very soon, this should shorten my time at the reloading bench tremendously....

Direct him to the ammo counter at Walmart! Of course that answer doesn't really help! Explain the situation to him and very clear terms. Somehow he needs to pick up a greater part of the process.

Or as Gbusmech has done, buy a progressive press. Midsouth shooter supply has the Hornady AP on sale at $379.

I have a Dillon Square Deal B that I have set up for 9mm right now and it looks like it's gonna stay that way for awhile
Now that I'm aware of what my PT 1911 seems to like I can start loading in boxes of 100. I'm using Red Dot which doesnt meter all that well and I need to measure each load and they seem to be most accurate when doing that

over the years I have had many, many friends (and some family) ask me to reload for them.
I simply say no but!
I will be glad to show you how to load your bullets, just drop over and talk to me, I will give you an idea of what powder, projectiles that you need .
they usually never appear and what few that do never show up again as it can be time consuming.
and I usually already have the brass sized and prepared.
now IF I am shooting with family then I will share ammo after I tell them hey these are reloads!
occasionally I will provide ammo for a newbie that I am teaching but that don't last long and they are directed to the ammo counter.

Same here, I don't sell my reloads, or let other than family shoot them.

Try running NATO 9mm through that SAR, it may tighten up those groups. My PT-92AFS would shoot so-so groups with range 9mm ammo, but once I shot some NATO through it those groups were cut in half. BTW, the SAR is NATO certified, as are the CZ-75, it poly derivatives, and most of its clones, especially the Turkish made clones as all of those were initially military sales. In fact, I think CZ goes through NATO certification with all of its new pistols.

muddcatt I think it's time to share the load as it were. Such as reloading duties and supply costs. In fishing I believe it's called pay to play!

I's nice to have someone to share the time with. In my case the shooting time is with my wife. She really enjoys it but it does limit the times we can go together because she still works. Next she refuses to come to the loading bench but has no qualms about buying supplies or cleaning and sorting brass.

I can recall that. It was one of the 1st conversations we'd had.

OLFARHORS who couldn't like the way you think, you have pretty good opinions on just about everything that comes up on these threads. We are talking about a guy worth well over a million dollars and still has his third grade lunch money he complained about a nice $20.00 IWB holster FOR the pistol. He told me when he bought the pistol that he would not have to buy bullets because I reloaded 9mm. He is however started knocking out primers and that helps
