Reloading Supplies: Discount Bullets, Parts, & Equipment for Reloading Ammunition
Reloading ammunition is the process of hand constructing cartridges rather than using mass manufactured cartridges. Reloading requires buying all of the necessary parts of ammunition separately and using special reloading tools to put the cartridges together. Traditionally, the term handloading was used to refer to individually manufactured cartridges made from all new parts, and reloading referred to hand manufacturing ammunition using previously fire brass cartridges. Today, however, the two terms, handloading and reloading have become synonymous.

Why Reload Ammunition?
There are a number of reasons hunters and shooters have for reloading ammunition. The following are some of the more popular reasons why many shooters choose to reload ammo.
- Save Money: Reloading ammunition allows you to save a significant amount of money by reusing previously fired cartridges.
- Reuse Hard to Find Cartridges: Reloading ammunition is also good for people with rifles that require hard-to-find cartridges because it allows them to reuse the limited casings.
- Increased Precision and Accuracy: A casing that has been previously fired from your firearm will be fire formed to your specific barrel. Therefore, reloading this casing can result in greater accuracy the second time it is fired from the same gun.
Ammunition Reloading: Tools & Supplies
There are a number of tools required for successfully reloading ammunition. At The Hunting and Fishing Connection, we sell all of the parts and equipment that any experienced or beginner ammunition reloader will need for reloading or handloading cartridges. These quality reloading supplies the we sell online at discount prices include brass cases, bullets, calipers and bullet measuring devices, case care tools and trimmers, dies and parts, presses, primer accessories, scales and powder accessories, and shell holders and shell plates.
Reloading Supplies: Trimmers and Case Care Tools
Improper case care can result in increased pressure and unsafe ammunition. Therefore, it is important to ensure your cases are kept in excellent condition. For example, brass cases will often stretch during firing, which means that you may find that it is necessary to trim cases prior to reloading. At The Hunting and Fishing Connection, we sell a number of trimmers and case care tools to keep your brass cases in top condition.
Reloading Supplies: Presses
Presses are an essential piece of equipment for reloading. These are used to push cases into the dies. If your dies are made of hardened steel, you will need to lubricate the die in order to allow the case to slide into place with the press. For carbide dies, lubrication is not needed because these have a ring of tungsten carbide, which allows the case to be pressed easily into the die.
Reloading Supplies: Priming Tools
Priming tools are used to insert new primers into the cap. This step can be performed with a press, but a priming tool results in a more consistent depth. We sell a number of quality, easy to use primer tools to properly set primers when reloading ammunition.
Reloading Supplies: Scales and Powder Accessories
It is important when reloading ammunition to accurately measure the powder that you are loading into each cartridge. This will ensure that you are not loading cartridges over the maximum safe load. Two options available for measuring powder include a powder scale and a powder trickler. A powder measure will help calibrate your powder scale for improved accuracy. A powder trickler, which measures a charge directly into the powder scale, will result in the most accurate powder measurement when reloading.
Reloading Supplies: Bullets
For safety purposes, we recommend that only quality bullets should be used when reloading or handloading ammunition. We sell bullets from the trusted manufactures at low prices. You can buy bullets made by the following manufactures at discount prices from our online store.
