    Well, I've now loaded just over a thousand cartridges (.45Colt & 9MM) on my Lee Turret and I love it. The entire experience has been wonderful and very rewarding. My initial buy of reloading equipment is almost complete,
    My next die set will be .45 ACP, then my first rifle load will be .45-70, X39, 7.5X55 and so fourth. Lots to learn about rifle cartridges so I'm hitting the books and thinking about buying a Wby Vanguard .270 just so I can load a

    I want to experiement with casting/sizing this fall or winter but what is the rush with MBC just a mouse-click away; man they ship fast. :fire:

    I should get the adjustable powder-disk and an extension to raise my powder dispenser this week. I found the primer pocket reamers for 9 bucks so I am ramping up to tackle the military crimps on all that brass I have been collecting over the years.

    I'm learning so much from this forum every time I log on; the Q & A, the rabbit trails, the advice, all of it. I have to learn to watch the trading post a little closer as some of you guys swoop down and nab the brass before I realize if it is a good deal or not. ;)

    I'm just now connecting the dots on how the powder burn-rates differ and what they do to the whole process. So much terminology to soak up and learn...

    I've always admired the vast technical knowledge reloaders possess and the ability to access it on a moments notice (without a teleprompter.......)There is very little (if any) wrong info in these pages. A fine bunch of people here.

    Thanks, thanks and thanks

    I've found over the last 2 years, this is a GREAT place to learn.
    The experienced ones are always willing to help without the usual rolling of the eyes at newbie questions!

    Glad to hear you're enjoying the hobby!

    Stay safe my friends!
