Safely Reloading Ammunition With The Right Tools For The Job

For firearm enthusiasts and hunters, reloading or creating customs loads or ammunition for their guns can save them money and allow them to fine-tune the round they are using to do the job they need to do more effectively. Having the right tools to do the job correctly is critical for any reloader who wants to produce usable but safe ammunition. 

Loading Presses

The loading press you choose is essential. Finding a press that has interchangeable dies allows you to buy one press to load several different calibers with. The dies are reasonably priced, and you just need to make sure your press can handle the height of the casing and there is a die available for your caliber choice. Also make sure to change the die when you want to change what you are loading. 

Check with the manufacturer or a dealer to find a press that fits your needs and fits in your loading room without taking up too much space. Buying the best press you can afford that has many different die options can save you money later because if you decide to change calibers, you only need to buy a new die, not an entirely new press.

Powder Tricklers

If you are considering a powder trickler for your loading operation, there are many different models available. In most cases, the trickler is a matter of preference, but make sure you get one that allows you to make very small adjustments in how much powder you measure into the powder tray. 

Fine-tuning your ammo can sometimes come down to a few grains of powder, and your trickler needs to be able to add tiny amounts of powder to make that possible. If you have never used a trickler in your reloading process, you might want to take some time and talk with someone at the gun shop where you buy supplies. They can help you pick the powder trickler that will fit your process and achieve the adjustments you need. 

Bullet Molding

Many reloaders like to mold the bullets they use in their loads from scratch. Bullet molds are available in many calibers and shapes so you can make a bullet that performs perfectly for your situation.

A rifle round that has the right amount of powder in it and the right bullet weight and shape can be very effective over a long range, and in a hunting situation where your game may be one hundred or more yards away, the flatter trajectory can be the difference between hitting a deer or other game and missing the shot altogether.
