What’s the Cost of Reloading Yourself?

I have been seeing a lot of talk about this product that has been around for apparently a century. It seems it was used by the German army from about 1900 – 1945 and is approved in the USA as being edible! It appears to be a wonder cleaner, lubricant and preservative and is used for cleaning bores like magic and even on leather holsters!

Is anyone using this stuff and care to comment on it. I would be extremely grateful. Have been using CLP and pretty happy with it along with a few others, but this stuff, Ballistal, seems to be the cat’s meow now. What do you think?

A friend of mine recently passed away in Massachusetts. He was career Army Reservist and had collected quite a number of firearms over the years.

 He had a number of licenses and that collection might even include some automatic weapons (all legal).

The family is looking into selling the weapons but is not sure how to best go about the process of determining the ins and outs of how to do it legally in Massachusetts.

As I am relatively new to concealed carry I would ask for any thoughts or suggestion on officials, agencies etc. that the family could contact in this regard.

I appreciate any suggestions.

I want to get into reloading .40 Smith and Wesson. I currently don’t have any reloading supplies unless you count some once-fired brass. What would I need to get started reloading in this caliber, and how much should I expect to spend getting the stuff I’ll need?
