    Oh my God I just looked that up. I don't want to know how you know what that is.

    One more hint for new reloaders hanging out here... ignore Little Stevie.

    Nicely done, Steve! Gets my vote for a Sticky too! Wish I'd been able to find something in this vein a couple of years ago!

    Me too. That's why I typed it out. None of this stuff is anything I invented, but I thought it would help folks just starting out.

    Actually, this is the second time I've typed it all out. Fwdftw used up so much space in my PM box I thought I'd just throw it all out here. :supergrin:

    MODERATOR, MODERATOR!

    Little Stevie is introducing smut into Zombie's hoped to become sticky.

    Banish him on the general principal that no one can even believe he had any idea what the term meant.

    Of course he was probably referring to the ex-senator. :whistling:

    It's not nice to make promises you don't intend to keep.

    You did a great job Steve, I admire your desire to help, but I wonder if it just makes some guys lazy. SOme newbs see no need for loading manuals either, "I'll just go online & ask for a recipe".:dunno: A worthy effort, hopefully they will still get & read a reloading primer. If I sound cynical, it's because I am. You see all the questions that get asked here, most can be answered by reading a book. Sorry, bad Monday.

    Jack said the same thing when I was on the phone with him earlier. I sure hope nobody takes this as a complete guide... just wanted to help with some common newbie issues.

    Nice intro, Steve. Hopefully, it will entice new reloaders to further research these concepts you have briefed them on.

    Good stuff Steve! Great job!! Now how to make everyone read it first before asking questions!?!?!

    I kinda agree with fredj338. Some folks are just too lazy, but that basically reflects where we are as a society in general....

    I'm pretty sure I'm glad I missed what's been deleted. :whistling:
