How does one become a "Master Handloader"? I've been reloading for 15 years.

Howdy 7mmreloader

Not a 100% certain but I believe the way it's approached is that the admins and the board founders will watch, read and generaly observe members over an undetermined amout of time to check someone out,

I've been at my given profession a little over 35 years, It's not hard to determine the flake's and bs'ers from the the guys who know there stuff.

Having said that it takes longer to sort out a guy that knows his stuff from a master tech

 

Here we have lots and lots of handloaders that are very knowledgeable  at there craft (know there stuff), but that by itself would not make someone a  Master Handloader.

I think knowledge, participation, attitude and some other  things go into it


I've been handloading since the early 80's and I know I'm not a Master Handloader

Any of the powers that be chime in at anytime  if this needs correction

years ago in days of old ...( gee sounds like a song er summin'.. lolz ) it went strictly on post count , roughly translated any ol posting whore could achieve that status , eg: it meant nothing , a few years back we changed formats as well as tweaked the membership statuses , some are still along the lines of post count and some are at admin's discretion , to further add to the confusion ( :P ) we have members from both era's ( so to speak )

woody ? i think you explained it quite well ,i've been reloading and handloading for more winters than i care to recall and i'm still but a student ( erm learning new things - thankfully not the same things o'er and o'er again :P )
