Drifter,

Go to the top of the forum, click the memberd button,  find the member your lookin for, click the members name, in the little window that pops up you can select to send a PM or an email if that member isn't keeping there email addy private.  But right now the PM function isn't working right.  Hopefully it will be fixed tonight.

Bill

I started reloading just after I mustered out of the Marine Corps.  (1967.)  I guess that 1st Weatherby drove me to it..  Since then I've reloaded for numerous friends and all the different calibers I've accumulated over the years.. Like any good reloader I still have the dies for calibers I no longer own.. My son is at the age that he also will take up reloading.. I sent him to Bass Pro last week for some 300 Win shells. I think they made a believer out of him. Fifty bucks for whatever he was looking at.

Hi everyone.  I found the site looking for 50bmg reloading info.  I've been reloading for 20+ years, and it's always good to get as many opinions as possible.  Thanks for being here for me.

I found your site surfing the web. I was looking for information on what scope is the best for the money. I have been reloading for years and I'm into long distance shooting.

 Found the sight thru Shooting USA. I've been reloading since 1973 out of economic necessity. Do it now out of passion. Current set ups include three Dillon RL550B's with all the bells and whistles!! I love these machines. One is dedicated for Cowboy Action Shooting, one for .223, and one for what ever I feel like loading. I have a Mec Steel Master for 12 gauge duck loads and Mec 9000G for 12 gauge trap loads. I have a cheap Lee set up with a depriming die for military brass. For single stage loading I have been using an old Lyman Orange Crusher. But, I just bought a new Forster CO-AX press that I am dying to set up and use.  I currently load for 18 different calibers. For right now I am recuperating from having my right knee replaced five weeks ago. Standing in front of a reloading press for any time at all is still out of the question. Sitting in front of one is even worse, cause the knee won't take it yet. Trust me, I've tried.

Looking forward to hearing from you guys.

Hi all

 

I found your site surfing the web.

 

After my return from Vietnam, like many I had a difficult  time adjusting back to civilian  life so I got a job as an armed guard it was low pay but it helped then I started reloading to cut the cost at the range all and all I had fun.

 

Time moved on, now I will start reloading once more and need to retool.

 

My weapon of choice is the AR15 by DPMS

Found the site while surfing the net.

I have been reloading off and on since the late 1970's and am getting back into it again.
