All 38 of them. I don't reload for 22 LR or shotgun. For all others I have dies, brass and whatever is needed to reload. Everything from .204 Ruger to 45-70. Reload for all the miilitary surplus ammo 6.5x55, 7x57,7.5 french, 7.5 Swiss, 7.62x39, 7.62x54, 30-40 Krag, etc.etc.

I have a CZ527 Heavy Barrel in .204 Ruger. I like shooting it, but seems excess to my needs right now. Its on my list of things to part with. Hey, I do have a guide gun with the ported barrel, just like the one you posted.

Did you buy yours around 1998? I think that's when they were introduced.

I handload for every center fire rifle I own. Most have never seen a commercial round of ammo through them.

I got my CZ in 2006 I think.

On some rifles I got loaded ammo because it about as cheap sometimes as brass. Others like 7.5 Swiss and 7.5 French I converted brass to load. For 30-40 Krag I used .303 brass.

one of the most rewarding to hand load for is my Marlin camp guns. adding stiffer recoil springs opened up the use of +P loads in them. so far Power Pistol is the slowest powder I've loaded. noticeable increase in power with 124gr jhp. I don't have any slower pistol powder on hand to try.
I also provide 2 nephews with these loads for a kel-tec and hipoint 9mm carbine. all 3 shoot good groups.

I reload for my Remington 1903 Springfield, SA M1 Garand, 2 AR-15's, and the mighty mini-14. Never reloaded handgun rounds but since I got my Henry Big Boy 44 mag and bought a few boxes of ammo Im thinking about adding it to the list.

wish i'd kept my 1906 Gustafs carbine.......6.5 Swede is a magnificent mid pressure round.

I currently reload and handload .38spl/.357mag for mine and my wifes '73 Winchester Short Rifle and Uberti El' Patron Competition model '73 Colt clone (in stainless)........and .45 Long Colt for my Taurus Thunderbolt pump action rifle and my Stainless El' Patron revolver, among other .45 LCs in the stable.

I don't do it to save money OR improve my accuracy.....but to achieve a balance of both.....I can turn out ammo that's more accurate than standard factory fare, for slightly less than storebought ammo of the same quality.

plus it's an extremely pleasant time filling hobby that I've begun sewing the seeds to hand down to my Grandchildren.....my 11 yr old Grandson already loves to shoot, and wants to begin learning to reload this coming summer.

I learned from my dad. I love my 1873 Uberti (winchester clone). Shoots so nice. I have four rifles in 45 Colt so I reload for that caliber often. Have enough brass to last a lifetime.

I have dozens of rifles but have only handloaded for a few.

My Stevens 200, which was a .223 I re-barreled to .221 Fireball has never seen factory ammo, mainly because when I first put it together around 10 years ago, factory ammo was not all that available/affordable.. btw-best shooting rifle I own..


My Savage 110 started off life as a 30-06, but I re-barreled it to a 22-250 for destroying prairie poodles, and it has seen very little factory ammo since my handloads shoot so much better..


My Remington XR-100 in .223 actually shoot some factory loads pretty good - including Winchester white-bbox 45gr - but it shoots handloads better..


And my Marlin 1894 will shoot .357 or .38 Special. I handload for it since I also have little pile of revolvers that shoot those rounds and handloading is so easy for those rounds..

Nice, finally some pics.

Very nice stable of rifles you have. I'm considering a revolver caliber round - 5 long colt - that I can also get/shoot a lever rifle.
