Home Reloads

A lot of us reload our own rounds. Following a set of rules and procedures is a must for safe accident free shooting. If you haven’t got a routine that you religiously follow each time you reload, then now’s a good time to get one into place.

Ammo Direct have released their July 2017 catalog.

Do your research! Their pricing for Freedom Munitions is similar to Aoraki Ammunition’s Geco, so you want to make sure you are comparing apples with apples, a lot of Freedom Munitions is Reman (remanufactured from once fired brass) as opposed to New so satisfy yourself you know what you’re getting before ordering.

If you have shot a lot of Freedom Munitions please share your experience in the comments.

To order call them on 027 305 5396 or email ammodirectnz@gmail.com

Their website is ammodirect.co.nz

A great platform to learn the ins and outs of reloading is the Lee Turret Press, which is available as a kit with everything you need apart from the dies for the calibre you wish to reload for, for $330 from Workshop Innovation here in NZ.

Here is a youtube video which gives you an idea of the strengths of this press: Lee Turret Press video

You can move to a progressive press like the Dillon 550/650 or Hornady Lock-N-Load when you fully understand the fundamentals and need to increase your output per hour beyond what the Turret Press is capable of.
