    Curious to know how old (wise ;)) the members here are. I know Elron was born in '59 and Jack is up there with Uncle Bob nipping at his heels but the rest of you I have no idea.

    I'm curious to see if there is an average age here and if reloading is really an old man's activity - like shuffleboard.

    Edit: Sorry fellows I forgot to mention I'm 44 magnum.

    Whereas I remember when the Redwood forest was a desert Unclebob remembers the Grand Canyon when it was a ditch.

    Shouldn't you be in math class or at recess right about now? :whistling:

    I was born in 1944. I wouldn't dare fire a cartridge that I reloaded. "Let's see now did I already put the powder in this one or not? Pro'lly not. Here then, let me just put it in right now so I won't forget." There are other reasons but that is the main one. Also I am too lazy and I'm far from rich but I don't really need to save money that badly. Before I retired I never had time and now I just don't want to.

    Fixed it for ya.

    Hey, old man, they delivered your book yesterday. It's snowing today and I'm not risking injury to my dainty, little body by going to the post office... although I may go to the store to buy a few cases of Twinkies while they're still available.

    Send me a PM or an email with your address and I'll get it out to you by Friday... unless I can find someone who wants to buy it. :whistling:

    I know, I know, I look like I am 35, but really, for sure, I am 59 now. I've been reloading fo about 3 years, mostly pistol, but a few months ago I started loading 30-06 and .223 Rem. My step-dad used to reload 30-06 about 45 years ago but the old guy doesn't know what happened to all his dies and such. So when he gave me his Springfield 03A3 I had to buy all new when I started shooting it.
