pigeon, Glad to have you. We can always use more experienced reloaders here. None of us have seen it all yet but collectively we are getting close. You just might be the key. LOL RD

Joined today. Found this forum a year or so ago but I can not remember how! I reload 38/357, 9mm., 44magnum, 45ACP, 223, 30 06, 30 30, 40mm and have been reloading since 1985. That is long enough to know that I do not know everything I need to know! Hope to pick up alot of good advise and hopefully share some of mine.

Overbore, would you please refresh my memory on the translation of Laus Deo. I am aware that it is on the top of the Washington monument and cannot be seen from the ground. I think it translates to "In God we trust".

New member From Albania, Computer science university degree year 2005. 10 years of experience with whatever platform a Processor seats on :D. Been hunting small birds for 6 years with Russian Izhmash 18 EM-M fully choked single shoot rifle. started reloading a few days ago with siarm roll crimp on drill press.

best intro to forum rules i could find. more IT forums should have this intro in their sites,

US is great for hunters, here i waited 9 month to pass security checks to get the license to carry one single shoot rifle in 12 cal only for hunting.

Hi, folks! Found this site while looking for information about using cast boolits in a .243. Still looking.
I'm a 75 year old retiree living on a ranch in Central Texas.I've cast and loaded for pistol and old and slow rifles for years. Never tried cast in a modern loading, tho.
Seems like a good group and I'm glad to be here.

Been reloading for about a year now. Found this site while searching for reduced recoil loads. I had spinal fusion in my neck this September, so I will not be shooting my normal 180 gr .30-06 loads for deer on Saturday. I am a machinist in upstate NY. I have 5 kids, so work and home does not leave as much time to go shooting as I would like. I currently only load .22-250, .243, .270, and .30-06. I have been coming to this site to read everything that my load books and abc's didn't mention. The only things I have found frustrating so far are the amount of time trimming and prepping brass and also the breech lock system on my Lee challenger press. I just don't like the "slop" that it feels like. I know it is only a few thousandths, but it annoys me to no end. It has gotten to the point where I will use my Lee reloader that came with the load book with my rcbs seaters. I did get a Redding BB2, but hit financial hard times while I was off for surgery and had to sell it. Don't know when I will buy another, but it can't be soon enough. Hopefully at tax time.

hola amigo ! and thanx for umm stepping from just reading to commenting ! while i cant help you on the press i can perhaps with the recoil , go to hodgdon's page and look at the data as well as the formula for using trail boss in calibers that they do not list load data for it , it has glowing reports for accuracy and low recoil , the little of it i have used backs this up , btw ? hodgdon also publishes some limited "youth loads" these offer a bit less recoil for women and youth

I found a load in Handloaders magazine with 125 gr Sierra spitzers over 47.0 gr of H4895. Supposed to be quite mild but still good to 200 yards. It was in an article titled managing recoil. It was perfect timing that it came out in that issue. I was reading it while wearing the big collar. I will be trying them out at 200 yards tomorrow.

Thanks for the welcomes. Just a quick update on the reduced loads. They worked like a charm. Two shots two dead does. One a bang/flop the other ran 30 yards. Both lung shot. And best of all, no pain in the fused spine.

Hello from 30 GIBBS FAN!!!!!
Just signed on and am enjoying reading the comments. I found the site at the 30 Gibbs website and did'nt mind signing up.I just got out my rifle and carried it in our deer hunt after letting it in the gun safe for a few years. It felt like picking up an old friend,what a joy to carry it again.No luck in the huntin' but it was a pleasure to carry it again.
Thanks for all the comments and I'll be looking for more to follow!!! Thanks from GIBBSFAN
