    When a car guy gets into reloading.

    I grew up in the classic muscle car era and have been into cars since I first got my driver's license in '67. I've had some nice cars, did a fair amount of bracket racing and spent countless hours in the garage, but that's kind of history now. I have my retired race car that I take to cruise-ins during the summer but I don't do much in the garage anymore.

    I needed a new hobby and recently took up reloading. I really enjoy it but the wooden ball on the end of the handle on my Lee press made my hand sore after a few hundred pulls. I figured I could fix that and went through my parts pile. It's much better now, but I find myself making vroom-vroom noises while I'm loading.

    That's awesome, MMB! Love it! Just like the shifter handle on my old Camaro with the muncie in it.

    If it get into reloading, I might have to dig in the boxes in the back of the shop and see if I can do something similar.

    You're showing your age. How many people even know what three on the tree is?

    I've seen young people who don't know how to put the windows down if there's a crank instead of a button.
