    There's an economy of scale with reloading. I don't know the exact figures, but once you've made the initial investment in equipment and tools, adding more dies saves more money. That's my theory, anyway ;-)

    I can't count that high!:uhoh: Um, err, I mean I don't feel like counting them all right now.

    To what purpose is a question like this asked? If you want to see how LONG we've been loading, then THAT would be an interesting poll.

    How many? Good qusetion but I never bother to count them until now, so pulled out the die storage drawers under one of my loading benches and started counting. Comes to 127 die sets but some are duplicates so only 112 calibers total. Not counting the 6 shotgun gauges. See photo of die drawers attached.
