I posted this on the Sig forum, but I want to post it here too. THR and Sig are my go to forums.
Thanks to all forum members, current and past posts, for the excellant information and tips on reloading. I have taken this month to get into reloading with the Lee Classic Turrent Press. First the 1911 .45 acp, then the Sig P226 9mm. I have tested and run approximately 500 of each through my 1911 and P226 with not one problem. Accuracy and cleaner burning powder, plus the cost savings are a huge plus, but I really enjoy all the other aspects of reloading. Years ago I reloaded shot shell for competition, but I really just reloaded for cost. I take pride in reloading for pistol and seeing the results. Next month I'll get the die kit for the .40 s&w for my Sig P229.o to forums.

Welcome to the great hobby of reloading. It looks like you are off to a good start.

Congrats on complete success with your loads.
.40 is fun to load for and to me is somewhat similar to the 9mm.
Love it but just to snappy

I'm in the same boat as you. I have taken the last few months to get into .308 re-loading. On the same press ta-boot. Had some serious problems and you guys helped me out thanks a million THR reloaders.

Congrats on having so many rounds w/o an issue.
That kinda proves that you are a reloader.
(paying attention to detail, & double/triple checking that you're doing it right)
Just don't let your guard down now.
Stay safe my friends!

Thanks. Not getting cocky....I know that if you get to thinking you have it down pat...up jumps the devil. ie, trigger control, sight picture etc. "Do the same thing right every time".

It's "turret". I don't think there's no such thing a "turrent". Never mind.

Mls, Good, Don't get cocky nor distracted.
It can lead to a kaboom or a squib.
You want neither of the two!

THR is always my first stop when I make my www rounds each day. A lot of great info here. I have spent hours reading discussions from 2 or 3 years ago here.

I think that now you must face the age old question "Do you shoot a lot so that you can reload a lot or do you reload a lot so that you can shoot a lot." Reloading can be simple and economical or you can make up specialo loads to meet your special needs. Do not laugh yet, just wait a little.
