I personally served in the Army for 4 years. Nothing to exciting, just your average 21B combat engineer. Only one deployment and that was to Egypt (and I can honestly say that I am perfectly ok with not being sent to A-Stan or Iraq). To all of you that have served, Thank you and if you have been in the S**t somewhere nasty I'm glad you came back in one piece.

Now that that's out of the way, I plan to sit back and read what all of you have to say on handloading because I have never handloaded a damn thing in my life. Hopefully I will learn something and put it to good use. Right now my favorite rifle is a custom .338 Lapua that I spent WAYYYYYY to much money on and the $125 price tag per/2o rounds is just plain stupid. So maybe its just time to start doing it myself. Anyone want to point me in the right direction?

hola amigo ! and welcome aboard !

if u have never reloaded anything i suggest starting with several manuals !!! or even the abc's of reloading , one can never have too much data for this hobby !! our search feature works pretty good and often alot of great ( and already discussed ) info can be found that way , not too many folks will see ur question here on this particular thread so if u dont find a few answers with a search post ur queries in one of the forums/sub-forums , it will get alot more views/comments in the correct category

Hi. My name is Matt and I will be getting into hand loading/reloading this year. I recently got into the 1911 platform and with the cost of ammo being pretty high here in Cincy I thought I'd give reloading a shot. I am a detail oriented person and pretty organized and the more I read about loading I see these are good qualities to have.

Right now I am just researching different presses so I can make up my mind come Christmas time. Right now I am leaning towards a turret press for pistols, but am also looking at single stage presses for rifle loads.

I joined a few years ago, but ya'll had computer problems and my work got way too busy to keep up with anything very fun, so my activity dropped to zero. Things are better now (lost a stripe, doing different work, but still have a job) so it is time to get back to real fun.

Hi folks, I live @ Castboolits and when someone posted they couldn't get on I though I'd check it out. SO far I haven't been disappointed.

What's wrong with 3/4 of an inch at 100 yards? Sounds pretty good to me for an 8mm.

If 3/4" group works for you, nothing wrong with that.

New guy- found this board while searching net for bulk bullets for sale. After reading some of the posts, I signed up, as the quality of posters on this board are a cut above! Happy to be on board, I've been loading/reloading ammo for 40 years, the more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.

I have already done so and suggest this is the way we should go; the right hand not knowing what the left ( hand) is doing.

Hello fellow lead handlers. I'm a newbie to the forums but have been handloading for over 30 years. A divorce has allowed me to get back into two of my true loves. Guns and loading ammo for them. I look forward to learning from all the years of experience the forum has to offer. Keep your primer pocket clean!

New to the site; refered from survivalmonkey.com. I'm a physician nearing retirement age, living outside a small town in SE Georgia. I can shoot off my back porch down a 90 yd lane. I've been reloading since age 20, started with 8mm mauser and a Lee loader. Now have 2 presses, an RCBS Jr, and a Dillon XL650 (come to think of it, these are the only presses I have ever had!) I have an extensive collection of handguns, rifle, shotguns, and a few that require those little blue stamps. :upskirt:

Okay! I'm a newbie too. ex-army where I was a Chemical Staff Specialist (Chemical, Biological, Nuclear, Radiological warfare) at Fort Hood Texas and then Saigon where I did anything but CBR. After that Univ. of Wash. where I got my B.S. in Chemical Engineering. After over 17 years with the City on Juneau, AK and then 15 years with Clark County WA. I accepted retirement status as best I can.Fibromyalgia Syndrome puts a severe damper on my activities.

I am a member of the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Assoc. and tie this to my membership in the Sons of the American Revolution where I have 13 ancestors, so far, who took an active part in the American Revolution, and we're still causing headaches.

I found this site while searching for reloading data for my .45-110 Quigley Sharps spaghetti gun black powder smoke stick. I have done some reloading - smokeless - but just starting Black Powder cartridge.

Hi all...found this site while searching for a load for 124 grain Golden Sabre in 9MM. At 72 and retired, working part time 3 days a week, I still have time for reloading pistols and shotguns. It appears to be an informative site that I can learn from...glad to be here.
