    You're more concerned about the piece of brass you dropped out of your tree stand than what you're supposed to be doing in the treestand.

    I got up in my treestand this morning in a choice piece of woods, only to drop a round of 308 while loading the gun. For almost 2 hours I was fretting and stressing about being able to find that piece of brass on the ground when I got down. I finally got down since I couldn't concentrate on my job in the treestand. Never did find the brass :mad:

    Don't say you haven't done that before!

    how about when you go to the range and spend more time scouting around and picking up brass before, during, and after you shoot than actually shooting.

    ... you run out of empty brass and arrange a range visit so you'll be able to reload again.

    Buy cheap factory ammo and pull it so you can reload it to your standards instead of shooting it.................. POA would be off anyway:scrutiny:

    You own guns that have never fired a piece of factory ammo.

    When you save brass in calibers for which you have no guns! Might get one someday.

    When you buy reloading dies for a cartridge you either don't reload or own a firearm for...yet :).

    Just my .02,

    When you walk through a truckstop and lust after those nice big bulbous firm and glistening wheelweights.

    This is why I own a good metal detector . No foolin ! I once lost a dummy round of my favorite .264 Mag cartridge and had to find it. Bought a metal detector and there it was ! I suppose the fact it was attached to my truck keys might have had something to do with it ;)

    When you have to take the day off work because you just got a new bullet / powder combination to load and test.

    when you go to the range without any guns, just to look for brass.

    when you finish up a match and skip lunch just so you can search the entire range for every last piece of brass (did this once when my wife went with me...she was not pleased lol).

    How 'bout saving cracked 223 brass, just in case you ever get a 300 blkout?

    You know you're a reloader when ...

    You have brass from guns you don't have anymore, but you can't part with it, because you may be able to trade it,
    or convert it to something else. or you p/u brass from your outdoor shooting spot, just in case you might buy the gun later.

    When you make fun of your buddies for showing up with factory ammo, because they did not get their reloading done.

    You low life!
