Not just calibers, but cartridges. How many different cartridges do you reload for? On top of that how many of each cartridge do you have a gun for that shoots/requires you to load different powders and/or bullets?
5.7x28 2 different mfgs (ar upper and ps90)
5.56nato/223wylde 7 from 11.5"-24" barrels and all but 1 have 8twist (1 7twist) 6 different mfgs
243win 1 22" 8twist
26cal
6.5gren 2 (20 and 24")
6.5creed 7 (18-24") 5 different barrel manufacturers
260rem 2 (22 and 24") same mfg
264wm 3 (2@26" and 1 32") 2 mod70 and 1 McGowen
27cal
6.8spc 2 (20 and 24") 2 differend mfgs
270win 22" blr
30cal
300bo 3(2 8.5", 1 16") 3 different mfgs
308win 6 (12.5-26") 4 different mfgs
300wm 3 (24, 26 and 30") 2 different mfgs

10mm 2 both 16", but different mfgs
338lm 1 24"
44mag 20" rossi92
45acp 1 16" Kriss Vector
45-70 gov't 2 (18.5 and 26") both 1895's
7 bolt guns, 4 levers and the rest are AR platforms with the exception of the Kriss

Now onto pistols
5.7x28 1 fn57
9mm 2 different mfgs 4.25-5"
357sig 2 different mfgs 4.4"
40s&w 2 different mfgs 4.4, 5.25"
10mm 3 different mfgs 4, 4.6, 5.25 and 6.01"
44mag DE 6 and 10"
50ae DE 6 and 10"
The DE is using the same frame, just changing out the mags and barrels

So this is very important to reload and why I do it.

You have quite a list of cartridges for which you load. Since I did this commercially for quite a few years, the list I would provide is extensive. I still have the remnants of an extensive history of loading with dies, shell holders, propellants, bullets and brass that far exceed what resides in my safes. It has been a fascinating life.

I lost all my stuff. Must of been in that old shed somebody hauled off. I'm down to 2 slingshots and a Louisville slugger.
Allows you to get up close and personal! (y) Don't even have to have a tenderizer. The meat will be mighty tender before ever you skin the critter.:unsure:

.223 Rem x 2 CZ527 bolt actions
Load 55gr FMJ, Nosler E-tips, 60gr TMK and when I can get them 65gr Sierra SBT

.257 Roberts FN Commercial 98
100gr Speer Hot Cor (plinker with Ramshot Hunter), 100gr E-Tips and 120gr Speer SPBT (longer range shooting and hunting) - both of those with Reload Swiss RS60

7x64 Nosler Mausingfield
185gr RDF / Hornady 180gr ELD-M for longer range games (Reload Swiss RS70), Hornady 139gr GMX, Sierra 160gr TMK / 169gr MK for shorter range and 160gr Sierra SBT for general hunting (Viht N160). Also have some 175gr Partitions I am hoarding (Probably load with N165 or RS70)

9,3x63 FN Commercial Geco 255gr T-Mantel for practice, Peregrine 250gr VRG for a pig hunting load. Think I still have hoarded some 285gr Partitions. Load those with N150

.44 Spc 240gr cast RNFP with Unique (Use for historic comps where 44 mag is too new, don't ask) and +P 255gr SWCGC over 2400 (Came in ~1,000 of the bullets very cheaply but they won't go cycle cleaning in mag length cases)

.44 mag
240 gr cast RNFP with Unique as a plinker, 240gr Nosler JSP with Viht N110 (though might revisit H110 now have magnum primers) and also am experimenting with a 180gr Peregrine Hog (non-lead hunting load) with N105

Considering reloading 12b Cervo / Thug slugs as well.
