    Due to liability issues, I think that many, if not most handloaders wouldn't do that. They might be more inclined to help you make your own, so that you are involved in the process.

    There is good reason for that, too. Many handloaders, myself included, have a personal rule against shooting handloads that are not assembled by themselves, or someone they KNOW, makes safe ones. They are aware of how some other handloaders do it, and it's not up to their standards.

    Handloading accurate, powerful and yet safe; rifle rounds is more then just dumping some powder in the case. Loads need to be worked up slowly checking for accuracy and pressure. I have had groups go from 1.5" to 4" with only a one grain change in powder, and what works well in one rifle may not do at all well in others.

    In addition to posible Liability issues there are also Law issues. To handload your own ammunition is legal but to manufacture for someone else requires paper work with the ATF and the State Department.

    my dad and I used to load them up for my rifle..I know the process and the amount of powder, neck size, calibration and everything, I just dont have a reloader or i would do it myself... these particular loads that i mentioned have been extremely accurate in my custom built mauser 98 30-06 and of course, i cant buy them locally ( the hot cors I can). I appreciate your input and opinions; I agree, safety first.

    Well, if I were still in your neck of the woods I'd invite you over, bring your rifle, bullets and brass and we'd whip up some good ammo along with some good conversation. I've done this so many times and to me it is the ultimate camp fire get together. We talk guns and loads, hunting and fishing and make sure every sized piece of brass goes through the chamber flawlessly. We trim brass all to the correct length, we chamfer case mouths and clean primer pockets. Each powder charged is checked and double checked. We determine the optimum seating depth correctly and seat bullets accordingly. Yeah, I'm a bit far away from AK right now.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    I would help you too. It seems that lately I load for more friends than I load for myself. I do of course develop the load in their rifle / hand gun and finalize a recipe that works for their application. It's good fun and has really become my favorite past time.

    To be honest we have four new gun owners on my street alone, word of mouth travels fast. I'm taken a new guy shooting Sunday, with any luck he too will get hooked.

    That sounds like you should pick up a hand press and do it to it.
