  1. This. Cabela's used to be the go-to place when I wanted to get some quality outdoor gear. They used to sell some of the best stuff there. Now it's all the Bass Pro store brand crap. They have went the same way as Cycle Gear bringing in cheaply made gear and apparel.
  2. In addition, some ranges want you to use a softer lead bullet. Also when handling the bullet, there's less lead poisoning potential for the most part.
  3. I kept mine stock. I did add a TRS-25 red dot. It's a fun, cheap, lightweight shooter.
  4. 147gr SNS RN with 3.4gr of Titegroup. Range is 3.2 to 3.6 gr. Bunny farts.
  5. CCI's seem to be more concentric than the Winchesters which work better in the primer feed tubes.
  6. The best time to start reloading was 10 years ago.

  7. Check out riverofguns.com. Enter the press you want and search. Here's an example result: Linky
  8. You could probably use carb or brake cleaner to clean off the lanolin from the cases and skip the walnut media step altogether.
  9. Sure, you could add one CP2000/1100/1050 for brass processing and then use your existing 650 for loading. Or just farm out the brass processing as @RIch22 said and you'll need to buy no additional new equipment. You'd just need to do a make or buy decision. Other than that, a bullet feeder and a primer sorter would be good to have.
  10. Sell the 650's for (2) 1100/1050's for the swaging capabilities. Keep one 1050 for brass handling and one for reloading. Automate both if possible.
  11. This makes sense. I looked on the Dillon website for 308 carbide dies, but they only had the 30 carbine and 30-06 carbide dies listed. In their catalog, they had a much longer list of carbide dies. I originally ordered the steel 308 dies, but Dillon was good enough to swap out the order once I learned that I could back order the 308 carbide and wait until they shipped. Once shipped, they would bill my credit card.
