I still want to know why taco wanted this info? But, it is a great list. If I need some data for the 375 H&H I'm going to call Johnny.

What I load myself and shoot the most is accuracy ammo for my semiauto rifles in .223Rem, .308Win, .30-06. Anything with a clip has to be fed.... frequently.

But I also load a lot of handgun hunting ammo - mostly .44Mag & .375Win.

The high volume FMJ plinking ammo I buy by the 1000rd case: .308Win, .45ACP, .223Rem.

So many calibers, so many guns, and so little time....

Handgun:
.38Spl/.357Mag
.380ACP
9mm Parabelum
.45ACP
.44Spl/.44Mag

Contender:
6.5TCU
7TCU

Rifle:

6x45
.243Win
6.5x55 Swedish

Reason for asking this question was very simple... some of my friends who doesn't reload think I'm spending too much time reloading so many different calibers (only 9) and not enough time shooting. Personally I enjoy reloading almost as much as shooting. I figured I can show them this list just to prove that I'm not reloading that much. Wait until they see this list. Now I think I'll look into reloading 12G for my shotguns.

Pistol reloads
9mm, 38, 357M, 44M & 45acp. Load & shoot the most .357 & .44 Mag

Rifle
Factory ammo (so far!)

Most of my volume plinking is done with cheap ammo, like 7.62x39, 1000 rounds for $99.95 inclusive of shipping! Big, single hole groups at too near my cost to handload.

CALIBERS LOADED...HMMM LET'S SEE

Promise not to tell a soul...?
I load every pistol caliber from 25ACP through 454 CASULL plus every rifle CALIBER [ not cartridge] from .224" to .458" which takes in dozens. A pal of mine was over visiting last summer and counted the die sets on the shelves. He said there were 125 sets there. I didn't tell him about the ones in storage under the bench in a box. Been a half dozen or more added since then, the latest being 9x23 if memory serves...
HEY, it's cheaper than drinkin' and chasin' women. Less dangerous too...TM
