    Thanks, guys.

    If you think I missed any topics that commonly come up or a finer point of something already mentioned (again, the focus was software for newbies, not hardware), let me know and I'll put it on the front page in the appropriate place. I might even give you credit for it. :supergrin:

    GREAT thread, Steve!!!!!!!

    I'll be the devil's advocate, here, since no-one else has.

    Where's the pictures, so that I won't have to read and comprehend your write-up!?!?!?!?!?:supergrin:

    I must say Great Job there Steve. The only trouble is that for a lot of people it’s a lot like trying to explain a football game to a person that has never seen a football game.

    When Unclebob was a boy they weren't allowed to go out for a long pass... they were afraid they'd fall off the edge of the earth. :whistling:

    Well, considering that my next endeavor is reloading, this information is invaluable to me, so thank you for taking the time to post stuff like this in plain english.
    :yourock:


    I guess I should also be happy that my goal for reloading is simply to reduce my target ammo cost, and not to see how :nsb: my reloads can get.

    Thread stuck. Please leave your shoes by the door so you don't track mud in.

    The more that you save the more you will shoot. You will start a vicious cycle. Welcome to the wonder full world of reloading.

    You can get your reloads :nsb: and stronger until you blow up your gun, and hopefully not your hand. Seeing how strong you can make a round is a bad thing for a new reloader. If you want to push the pressure envelope you should just get a bigger caliber made for it. Unless you want us to call you lefty.

    You're doing it wrong. Just thought I'd clarify. :supergrin:

    I thought those looked kickass.

    I want a .38sp load that will drive a 200gr 1000fps, from a snubby.
    Hook a brotha up.:cowboy:

    Seriously, this is the most serious ZS thread I've seen. WTF.
