Lee Precision is probably dancing in the streets right now. I suspect the number of new reloaders has tripled this year.

If I get something that fires a new caliber, among the first things that I do are:
  • Order a bullet mold
  • Order a sizing die, if I don't have one that works
  • Order a set of reloading dies (in carbide, if possible, with factory crimp die)
  • Try to find at least 500 brass cases in that caliber (2,000 preferred)
It would be a pure bitch monkey to have a firearm and not be able to get ammo for it, and the gummint can go after ammo easier than after guns. I've got dies that I've never used, but I know how to use them if I can't buy affordable ammo. As for MD's limits on powder that you can have on hand, I don't quite live in MD (but I can almost see the line from my yard).
