    I was wondering how much people have invested in their reloading.

    I would like to have one of those automatic feeding and loading machines someday. One that does all the work. Seems like a little manufacturing plant in your home or shed or something. As long as you keep specs in check it is similar right?

    So, how much for an ultimate reloading setup/how much do you have invested?

    The camdex and ammoload machines you are talking about are $25,000+- for one caliber and the conversion kits are about $7,500 each.

    I have built a lot of my own reloading gear but would guess I have around $10k in equipment.

    You really should toot your own horn and give us a tour of what you have built. I remember seeing bits and pieces on here before. It was all very, very impressive and I think it would be a great contribution to the board.

    Yep, fully automated, push a button, Camdex. Then again if a 1050 w/ bullet feeder (about $1500) & a little elbow grease can't do it for you, maybe just buy factory ammo.:whistling:

    I'm sure Morris would take that 1050 and automate it with a compressed air drive system.

    You don't need a lot of equipment, you just need a good butler.

    Really, I am too poor to be able to afford such a grandeur device, but one can dream no?
    I am into shooting any kind of sports, and just wonder who here has some decked out machines whizzing in the other room. I would imagine ventilation would be required ?:dunno:

    It is an internet myth that a large amount of equipment is needed to have a fully stocked loading room. The minimum amount of equipment to produce huge quantities of high quality ammunition amounts to nothing more than a tong tool and a satellite programed flat panel.

    Those who buy more equipment than that suffer from weak minds and feeble bodies.
