After lurking here & checking things out for - oh - almost 2 years now, I figured I might as well sign up just in case I've learned enough about something to contribute. I've learned a lot here - and get a kick out of the "regulars" who make this forum unique. Thanks! Started with my .223 / .357 - moved quickly to .40 & .9mm... Then, I got bit by the precision rifle bug and worked out some awesome .308's. With all of that, I ended up saving so much money that I couldn't help but move on to .30-.30 & .45 Colt. Then recently, I found one of those obscure calibers that it only makes sense to reload for - .480 Ruger - and jumped (am jumping?) into casting. I've most recently smelted 100lbs of lead and have cast (in 3 sessions) for the .357, .45 and .480. Anyway, I'll be around... probably still won't have a lot to say, but it IS a new year / new leaf. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
