Welcome to HandloadersBench.com. Our mission here is to provide a place for those interested in the hobby of Reloading Ammunition. We offer a series of forums where they can ask questions, share answers, and highlight successes & failures so that others can learn. If you join our site please be aware that front porch rules apply. If you wouldn't say it on your front porch with grandma, your pastor and your 12 year old niece present it doesn't belong here. The Golden Rule applies. If you can live within those guidelines, Welcome Aboard! Spammers, trolls, and flamers will not last long here, your time would be better spent looking for a board where those traits are acceptable. HB Administration

Mike Dillon passed away 11/7/2016. I doubt there is no one on this site that has not heard of this man or his contribution to reloading and the firearms industry. A great champion of our passion, reloading.

Very sad news. He definitely 'made a difference.'

RIP, Mike, and thanks.

Mike Dillon was indeed a pioneer, like Bruce Hogdon, the Speer brothers, Joyce Hornady, Richard Lee, and so many others. We owe them an awful lot.

I loved getting The Blue Press when I was a teenager in the pre internet days. Now I own two Dillons.

Thank you Sir. R.I.P.
