    When I have more money and more time, I would like to load .454 Casull, .45 Auto and several other rifle/pistol rounds.

    I can say that, for the time being, I am all set and don't need to load anything -- as I tend to load a lot of ammo when I have "the itch" -- then don't reload for perhaps as long as a year before I get the itch!

    Since my guns are all sighted in for my loads, I hate to just go burn up ammo as I cannot afford even just the projectiles at this point (I have cases, powder and primers already on hand).

    For the projectiles (pill, bullet, boolit et al.), most of what I load are Barnes X Bullets (or Triple-Shock X) which are not cheap! I may fire a couple or a few rounds on occasion, just to verify both the gun's integrity and accuracy.

    I use to use Barnes 168 TTSX in my Savage 308 rifle but they shot 1 1/2 " high so I change to Hornady 165 SST and now it's right in the 8" kill zone for deer.And there a better value then Barnes.

    Five, with option for a sixth.

    Started with .38 Special. Added 9mm. They are still the two most common. Got a K31. Have yet to not screw up a cartridge for it, but I have dies and such, and once in a while get a bug and try it again. :D Don't shoot the rifle that often, but I don't like relying on one source (GP11) for good ammo for it.

    .223/5.56 and .243 added this year, and both seem to be working out okay. Got a .357, but that's just a slightly different recipe than the .38, and it's worked out okay so far, too.

    Wife has a Makarov. Might start loading for it, too.

    Handgun: .25ACP, .32ACP, .32 S&W, .32-20, 9mm Luger, 9mm Largo, .380 ACP, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .38-40, .44 Special, .44 Magnum, .45 ACP, .45 Auto Rim, .45 Colt.

    Rifle: .223, 6.5 Swedish, 6.5 Carcano, 7mm Mauser, 8mm Mauser, .30 Carbine, .308 Winchester, 7.62x39 Russian, 7.62x54 Russian, 7.7mm Japanese, .30-30 Winchester, .30-06, .303 British, .577-450 Martini-Henry.

    Eight, and likely a couple more will be joining the ranks if I can scrape together the funds to pick up a couple more barrel burner's on the wish list. I like the magnum wheel guns and extreme velocity high powered rifle stuff. I'm absoluty struggling to get my hands on a 7mm UM at the moment.

    A total of 31, not counting shotgun.

    Hope this helps.
