It's been two years, how's the reloading going Tamara?
That hit a little too close to home
The only down side to reloading is some people (OK ...ME) have a tendency to become a little bit cynical. I walk the aisles at the local gun store and see box after box of $20+ ammo and know full well I can load better ammo for less.
It absolutely puts me in a dark mood to buy factory ammo. It feels like someone is stealing from me. I have learned to deal with it a little better over the years, but it still ain't a cakewalk.
One (among MANY) upsides to reloading, is now, you can buy almost any gun you wish without fear of feeding it. I shoot a 500SW, which can be like a second mortgage if using factory ammo. I shoot it regularly, with a myriad of loads for MUCH less than $10 for a box of 50.
Welcome to the mix
For a minute, I thought she literally made fire... while depriming a live primer...
Silence from Tamera!
I was wonderin if she's found a perfect load in anything? My best so far has been a cloverleaf with my 45-70 @ 100yds. Nothing from the factory has ever produced this and I am just hoping I can repeat it next time.
I found the same thing in both .45-70 and .300WSM. Comparing 150 gr PP made by Winchester in .300WSM and my own loads and comparing 405 gr Winchester and my own for .45-70...
I wonder why???
Tamara... Since you like to read so much!
Reloaded scads of .38 for about a year, but haven't pulled a lever since I started working at CCA, mostly due to time demands.
My recent acquisition of a Model 53 in .22 Remington Jet was quickly followed by the purchase of a set of dies in the caliber, as well as a bunch of bullets, however, so reloading will likely resume here in the near future...
Cool. I stumbled upon this thread while looking for some reloading data. I remembered reading it when you started it 2 years ago.
These days, if the factory ammo costs more than $5/box, I reload it. Well, except for my 30-30 Contender. I haven't gotten around to buying the dies yet.
With almost 10,000 posts on THR. How come I feel one of my legs getting longer...
Playing around on this site and a moderator to boot and you are just starting to reload? With all due respect for all women with firearms. I'm glad I have my old brown boots on...
It's possible. I've known people that shot for years, even in competition and never reloaded. Then there are folks like me who started reloading as soon as I got my first centerfire gun.
mtnbkr...I understand what (wait a minute whilst I pull my boot out of this muck) you are saying. It just struck as odd to be aligned with a reloading forum and not roll your own...
The problems is, that she spent all her time posting, and not enough time reloading.
I've been guilty of that, and many other priority malfunctions.
I think I'll go clean out the garage, I've been posting too much lately.
