    I just got my Hornady L&L progressive set up and have loaded a few hundred rounds with bullets I cast myself. I spent a lot of time researching reloading safety and techniques as well as bullet casting. Most of the time Google sent me here and I learned a lot from the site. Very satisfying to drop the hammer on that first 100 "home made" .44 mag rounds with decent accuracy and no issues. The $11 price vs. $70 or so for factory loads contributed to the enjoyment :). Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for all the good info and that I look forward to learning (and hopefully contributing) more to the site.

    Yeah, I'm kind of ate up with it lately :) I had most of the stuff for casting on hand from pouring sinkers so the bullet casting was a logical step. I got a 2 cavity 310 gr. and 6 cavity 240 gr. mold for what a box of 1000 FMJ bullets cost. The biggest reason I got into it was the cost savings. Sure I'm into it the cost of equipment but if I get tired of it I can sell the equipment for a lot more than the empty factory load boxes I'd have instead. I'm shopping for a FAL or Dragunov this weekend at the gun show so I'll be venturing into rifle reloading before long.

    I love the progressive. Once its set up I can load two boxes of shells faster than I can run to town, buy shells, and get home.

    I'm glad you like the site and glad you have a setup you are happy with. Like said above, this is a good place to hang around... Welcome to reloading and the forum.
