    Hey Gang!

    I went to the range this morning and fired my first ever reloads! :what:

    Fun! Mild...very nice to shoot. I bought a box of ammo just so I would have something to compare to, and it was pleasant shooting my loads:

    .45 ACP

    4.5 grains Bullseye
    Speer once fired brass
    230 Hornady FMJ RN
    1.25 - 1.26 ish C.O.L.

    I have a Redding T-7 turret press. Redding dies. Final die is a Redding Taper Crimp. I currently have a Berreta px4 storm. Very pleasant to shoot.

    This is a lot of fun! I've just started shooting again after a roughly 15 year hiatus. It's great to be back!:)

    I remember my first! There is something about that first box you fill and go and shoot, a nice feeling, like you are saving money and, at the same time, creating something customized just for that gun!
