    I'm thinking that I need to join calibers anonymous. :uhoh:
    Just when I think I'm done another one starts to appeal to me.
    Currently I handload the following:

    9MM punybellum
    .357 Sig (bottle neck case was to much hassle so I had to convert to 38 Super)
    38 Super
    38 Special
    .357 Magnum
    .40 short and weak
    .40 Super (10MM for those into sillymeters)
    .44 Special
    .44 Magnum
    .45ACP
    .45 Colt

    Have no interest in .380 ACP or anything smaller as the brass is to small for my pudgy fingers and I grew out of Magnumitis years ago so .454 Casull and up are also of no interest but you know that
    .41 Magnum is a mighty interesting round, seems a shame I don't own one. I mean after all once I have a revolver, brass, dies, shellholder and bullets I would be all set. :what:

    I shoot 9mm, 38, 357, 44 Mag. I only reload for 44 as 38 and 9mm are just too easy to buy and I don’t shoot a lot of 357.

    Note that I didnt say less expensive I said easy. Loading takes time and it’s a labor of love. I don’t love it that much and my labor is expensive so I buy what costs less than the time I’m out for loading it.

    9MM, 38 Special, .357mag, .41 mag, .44 Special, .44 mag, and .45 ACP. I also reload .211 FB, 22 Hornet and K-Hornet, .30 Herrett, 222 Rem and couple of others for a TC.
    It's the old TC Contender and it is still a rip to shoot.

    I buy ammo for the brass; I just enjoy reloading.

    I frequently 44 special, 45 Colt, 45 ACP, and 38 special. I have on hand around 30 sets of dies and can load just about any pistol calibre and a few rifles.

    You asked about pistol rounds. The ones with asterisk I have dies and brass, but I'm on the verge of selling all the supplies and just buying the ammo in bulk. The rounds with the cross I neither shoot much or load much anymore. Sad to say, .357 Magnum used to be very dear to me, but I have little use for it these days.

    357 Mag
    360 DW (really for a single shot carbine)
    41 Mag
    44 Spl
    44 Mag

    Nothing very exotic or unusual. I shoot home cast almost exclusively.
    With the exception of a few hundred full power 357 Mag and 44 Mag (which will last me for years) I load reduced rounds for casual or target shooting.

    I feel like such an underachiever, I only load for 44 magnum and 45 acp at the moment, mainly 44. About to start with the 454 casull as soon as everything comes in. My rifle and shotgun gear has been collecting dust for a spell.

    Right now I'm loading a lot of 45 Colt and 38 S&W including the 38/200.

    I'm loading the correct 200gr bullet for the Enfield I'm shooting.

    I load .380, 9mm, .38 special, 357 magnum, .40 S&W and .45 acp. I keep thinking about a 10mms revolver and since I already load .40, I wouldn't need new dies and bullets.

    I generally load what I shoot. I have dies for .380 ACP, 9mm Luger, 38/357 Mag (as yet unused, but ready to start), 40 S&W, .45 ACP, .300 AAC Blackout, .458 Socom (unused since indoor range stopped me after 2 rounds). I’m pondering adding .223 Rem, except I only shot .223 so I could collect brass to convert to 300 Blackout. Only, now I have an abundance of Blackout cases.
