    When you spend more money on brass to reload than actual factory loaded ammo!

    You know you're a reloader when you can remember the case trim length for every cartridge you own but you can't remember your wife's cell phone number. Shooter

    When you scrounge and amass about 18 5 Gallon buckets of wheel weights and STILL Dig lead out of the berm and the trees/logs when you are done shooting.

    1) After firing at a target, you retrieve your brass before even looking if you hit your target.

    2) When you visit a tire shop, you go there not to have your car serviced.

    3) When you are at the range, you have 5x more ammo than the person next to you.

    You Know you Are a Reloader When

    You don't consider this to be too much of a good thing:

    When you aquire so many reloading manuals you have to buy a third book shelf.

    When you always run out the black ink cartridge first , 'cause you print so much load data.

    When you spend 2 hours going through your back issues of Reloader looking for that article on the new powder you just started loading.

    When your friends at work give you that "deer in the head lights" stare when you rattle on about the best twist ratio or bullet seating depth.

    When the bottom shelves your benches have lead ingots or bullets stored on them, to keep them from being top heavy

    The motherload! Would be nice if it was in more than one or two cartridges!

    You know you are a reloader when this is what you call a box of bullets.

    When you spend 30 minutes looking for that .03 primer you dropped
    When you start buying 5 gallon buckets because Folgers won't
    When you save those 2 or 3 pieces of bent brass for no reason
    Not to mention the plastic primers come in just in case you find a use for them

    When you know the exact weight of lead that will fit in any sized USPS flat rate mail package ...

    When you don't even have to think about buying any bullet, primer or powder you see on clearance because you know you can use it.

    - When you shoot you dig them from the sand backstop, reload them and shoot them again.
    - You're the only one at the range with a net.
    - You stand behind someone with a net to catch their brass

    When you find you no longer enjoy shooting but go to the range just to have a reason to reload.
