    8x57 Mauser

    357 Herrett
    35 Whelen
    401 Win
    44 Rem Mag
    45 Long Colt
    454 Casull

    If I had to pick only 3 favorites for cast bullet it would be the 357 Magnum, 357 Herrett and the 45 Long Colt . Close runner ups would be the 357 Maximum, 401 Winchester, and the 308. For reloading with J-words it would be the 6.8 SPC, 270 Win and the 7mm TCU. If I had some good molds in .277 and .284 those might make the cast bullet list. The first cartridge I ever reloaded for was the 357 Herrett and I still have great fun with the wildcats.

    I forget if I commented here. I'm at 17, not counting any combo calibers .38/.357 ect. My top 3? Probably 9MM (shoot the most), .32 ACP, and .308. Also 7.62X25 as a honorable mention. That is one fun little zippy caliber. Wish there were more firearm options.

    I load the following calibers:

    20, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 375, 40, 41, 416, 44, 452, 458, 470/80, 50

    I have loaded the following cartridges:
    .204 Ruger 22 Hornet 221 Fireball
    .222 Remington 220 Swift 22-250
    .223 .243 .257 Roberts
    260 Remington 6.5x54 6.5x55
    6.5 Carcano 6.5x53R 7x57 Mauser
    275 Rigby 30 carbine 30-06
    30 Remington 30-30 30-40 Krag 300 Savage
    300 H&H 375 H&H
    .308 Win .303 British 7.62x39
    7.62x54r 32 win spec 8x60s
    8x57 Mauser 8x50r 8x56r
    318 Westley Richards .338 Win Mag 35 Rem
    350 Rigby Magnum 38-55 .375 Flanged 2 1/2" Nitro Express
    9.3x74R 400/350 Nitro Express 400/360 Purdey 416 Rigby
    450/400 NE 450 Nitro Express 45/70
    450 Bushmaster 470 Nitro Express 50/70

    Pistol:
    45 acp 38 special .357 mag
    380/200 9 Luger 9mm Makarov
    40 S&W 44 special 44 mag
    45 Colt .45 Schofield 7.62 Nagant
    41 Magnum 480 Ruger

    Shotgun:
    12, 16, 20, 28, 410

    Only ones I don't anticipate reloading again are the 260 Remington, 7.62x54r(but looking for brass--makes great 8x50r), 45 Schofield, 40 S&W, and the 338 Win Mag.

    Favorite 3? The Hornet, first centerfire I got serious about reloading, next the 470 Nitro, just because everything about it's almost cartoonish in scale in comparison to the Hornet. I've taken a loaded round to the club, sat it on the table with a 2lr next to it just for the reactions.

    More than a few thought the 470 was a gag cartridge.

    Third most favorite is pretty much all the rest, except the 416 Rigby, I think that has given me more grief that the rest combined with chambering/feeding issues. Still don't have it completely sorted out yet. There is a couple of jacketed bullets that are going to Accurate tomorrow to see if they can be duplicated in lead to fix the feeding problem. Nothing a custom boolit mold won't solve.

    Above was my list from last fall, since I've added 9mm.

    Added the 9 Makarov a couple of weeks ago.

    And the 400/360 Purdey also. Much more fun that the Makarov, my fingers can hang on to the big boolits, not as easy with the Makarov itty bitty boolits.

    I assumed that 00 and #4 buckshot were technically calibers.

    #4 buck
    00 Buck
    .452 230 grain.

    I just took a quick look and there are 27 boxes for die sets. 2 are for primer pocket tools and 4 or 5 I have never loaded with them. So it looks like 20. What really surprised me was how many 50 round ammo boxes I have most with loaded ammo or prepped brass sorted by headstamp. Last time i checked the was over 80.
