    I gave up reloading back in '93 when I moved from WA to FL. There wasn't really anywhere to hunt so why bother? I've still got an ammo box full of old shotshells and rounds for guns that were stolen long ago.

    After the hurricanes in 2004, I gave serious thought to HD, so I bought my G30 last year. Of course, no ammo was to be found, so I dragged my old equipment out of the attic and cranked it back up. Now I've added 9mm Makarov to the .45 auto reloading, and it's refreshing to remember how therepuetic reloading is. It's not just about the money and availability!

    Well,I'm retired now so sometimes I need a way to pass the time,so I just go into my reloading room and start cranking them out.

    I enjoy hand loading (I prefer this term over reloading) as it satisfies that "machinist" urge I think all of us have tucked away somewhere. For my handgun ammo I just make sure I use quality components and its reliable. I go all out on my .223 ammo with full brass prep, all the gauges and match grade components. Very enjoyable pastime over the past 47 years.
