    Cartridges I reload for:
    30-06
    .308
    .30 carbine
    6.5x55
    8x57
    .223

    50ae
    44 mag
    45 acp
    9mm
    380

    Cartridges that I shoot but don't reload
    .22lr
    .22 wmr
    7.62x25 Tokarev
    7.62x38r Nagant
    32 acp
    25 acp

    7.62x54r
    7.5x54 French
    .303 British

    I intentionally try to keep my cartridge list as short as possible. There are some guns that I haven't purchased just because I don't want to reload another cartridge ex. Dan Wesson 715.

    Cartridges that I own a gun for but have never shot:
    .32 rimfire
    .30 Mauser

    Your 45 ACP and 38 Special are both legal for deer handgun season if they have a five inch or longer barrel (and rifle if you have a carbine chambered in them). I have killed a lot of groundhog with the 22 WMR when I lived in Ohio. I have killed a lot of ground hogs with a lot bigger center-fire rifles in Ohio too. 7mm Rem Mag is quite the groundhog killer. With Ohio allowing straight wall cartridges for deer hunting you have quite a number of new cartridges you could use if they interest you.

    Not a very long list for me (yet).

    .22 Short
    .22 LR
    .22 Magnum
    .38 Special
    .357 Magnum
    9mm
    .223/5.56
    .308/7.62x51
    7.62x39
    7.62x54r
    .30-06
    12 gauge

    That's it for now, but I'd like to add the following in the future:

    .45 ACP
    10mm
    .45-70
    7.62x25
    300 Blackout
    6.5 Creedmore
    300 Win Mag
    .30 Carbine
    .303 Brit
    9x18mm

    Maybe:

    .40 S&W and .357 Sig if I get a Glock 22 or 23 with a .357 Sig conversion barrel
    .45 Colt if I ever decide to get a SAA in the caliber it was made for!

    .22s are very addictive, especially once you find one you like. Its hard not to want to try them all. I would go so far as to say that .22s will be getting the job done long after I am gone.

    I agree. Tween rifles, revolvers and pistols I have a dozen or so. I’ve never owned one chambered for anything other than 22LR. My Ruger Mk2 and S&W 41 see the most use.
