He plans to market it to local ranchers, farmers and landowners, as these problem animals may be an issue when killing livestock or destroying property.

Cory Dosch, from Dupree, SD, submitted a business plan for Cory’s Custom Reloading, and his company will provide an ammunition reloading business to the Dupree area. His target customers would be outdoorsman, hunters and target shooters.
