    Default I haven't been around much this past couple weeks...

    But I have a good reason... I got a new toy for my birthday, paid for by my tax returns and have been doing a lot of research and reading and forum surfing to help get my new hobby off the ground. So please forgive me for my absence .

    I have found that I have been going through a lot of pistol ammo lately, and figured I'd better do something about it, because it was getting expensive... So I bought a reloading setup!

    I figured I would share just cause we are all kids at heart, right?

    You have to reload if you are going to do a lot of shooting, I also bought mine with income tax check but that was 1987

    I have wanted to get into reloading for a while now. That and its kind of a tribute to my grandpa who was a gunsmith and avid shooter. I remember spending many an afternoon in his den with him helping him reload when I was a kid... that would be around 1987 LOL. (I was 12 that year, and my grandpa and I were working up loads for the rifle I was gonna use to kill my first deer that fall... 22-250 if I remember right. Good times )

    I like it wabbit, including the caliber that was reloaded.

    Man, I packed away all my guns (except handguns) about 25 years ago. Since then I even packed away all my ammo and reloading stuff. Used to buy bullets and primers by the thousand. By today's prices I'd bet I have $500 or $600 just in powder. Two presses and all the other goodies. 9mm, .308, 25-06, 30 Herrett, 22 Hornet, 7x57mm. Must have 400 rounds loaded for each handgun and 200 for each rifle. Reloading can get to be addictive, too.

    Looks good wabbit. I still use a RCBS Rockchucker from the 60's or 70's my dad gave me. Barry, I haven't heard anyone say 30 Herret or 22 Hornet in over 25 years. Use to have both years ago.

    Both of these are for my Contender. 30 Herrett is a full-bull 14" barrel (essentially a hopped up 30-30) and suited for big game and/or long range groundhog hunting. It's got a 2X scope on it and I've made a mess of lots of groundhogs out to 200 yards. The 22 Hornet is a tapered 10" barrel with a 4X scope and this is mainly my squirrel and short range hog weapon. I have gotten 1 hog at about 150 yards and a few squirrels at around 80. Not bad for a handgun. From a bench rest I have taken out thumb tacks at 100 yards with the Herrett. That was many years ago. So long ago, in fact, that I'd be surprised if the barrels aren't rusted shut. Some day I'll dig them out and look. Then sell the whole works.
