    A long, long time ago I had one of those Lee kits and used it to load up some 30-30 ammo. I am talking about a real long time ago, I was just a kid. I recommend you buy yourself a single stage press to load ammo on, not one of those Lee kits.

    As far as reloading while camping, yes, the buffalo hunters used to do this. Cowboys did not. It was common practice for the buffalo hunters to bring along powder and primers when they went out into the field. They did not bring along bullets, they brought lead, casting their bullets by their campfires at night, and reloading the spent cases they had shot that day. They usually used the hand operated nut cracker types of loading tools.

    However, don't forget, these guys were usually traveling with a wagon full of supplies, they were not alone on horseback. Having a wagon along made it much easier to carry the necessary powder, primers, and lead, as well as all their other supplies. Do you really want to drag all that stuff along with you when you go camping?

    By yourself an inexpensive single stage reloading press. You will be able to load much more ammo more quickly than with a hand operated type of machine. And your hand will not be tired. Bring loaded ammo along, forget about making ammo while camping.
