Reloading gear need not be pricey or bulky. You can carry all the reloading stuff you need in a small to medium sized gym bag. Yeah, it’s all hand-operated single stage stuff, but it makes ammo. Good ammo.

Go with a Lee Handloader. Spend the money to get carbide dies – don’t really need lube that way, so if you run out, no bigs… for rifle, make sure you get a 3 die set that has the crimp die included.


Back in “the before time”, reloading rigs were even smaller, to fit in saddle bags and such… The Lyman 310 tool. They’re all over FeeBay and yes, someone is still making dies for it. Make your reloading kit even smaller.

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
