    Good for you! You will have a great time making your own rounds and shooting them. Read your manuals (notice plural) and read them again and then jump in and let the fun begin. Be safe.

    Ready, set, go, . . .

    Go de-prime and re-size all that brass you've been saving.:D

    Welcome to the madness. Now, about casting your own bullets, . . . .:p

    mitchell, you might want to get your post count up, I hear there is going to be a Lyman Reloading Handbook #49 given away on the next round of giveaways!!

    Get that post count up so you can qualify for it.

    Highboy, your comment reminds me I need to post some pics of my reloading room and guns. Will try to do that in the next couple of days.
