    Yesterday while sitting in my tree stand bow hunting for whitetail I was thinking about what reloads I wanted to try next. I have hunted for years and still love it, but was thinking about reloading almost all morning. I was wondering if anyone else is possessed or obsessed with this reloading stuff?:)

    Not only am I juiced when I take a deer from one of my reloads, when I hear one of my brother's shoot, I just smile and know I had a small part in that success. Reloading shooting and hunting have now just blurred into one hobby that is all about me. I'm a happy, happy man !!!

    Gene, yes I am a addict thats all I do I shoot every weekend (Sat&Sun). I think of my next hunting trip and I keep tuned up. I think of reloading while I'm at work, even thought about reloading at lunch in my little job site office I shoot on the weekends so I can reload after work during the week, I started reloading years ago thinking I was going to save money, all's I do is shoot more and spend even more money. You would think after 10+ years reloading it would loose it's appeal, not true in my case, my wife often brings my dinner out to my shop after work in the evenings. reloading for my is like crack to a junkie. I've got it bad.:eek:

    My wife has seen me get this way with weight lifting, motorcycles, hunting, bow shooting, and now reloading. She tells me that I could turn stamp collecting into a competition. LOL All the others ended with this bad back stopping them, but I can reload with my back in a brace. I hope!!!! Looking for surgery #3 in the very near future.

    I am always thinking about buying a different caliber gun so I can reload something new. Does this mean that I am addicted also.

    I think the term should be 'Obsessed'

    and yes, I do constantly think about reloading, or that next firearm,
    or next day I can go out to the range and cause some damage.

    Not too into hunting though... I'll let other people kill Bambi,
    and then I'll eat it!

    Hah!

    I have to restrain myself from going into the local sporting goods stores
    cuz I keep thinking... ooh, I don't have one of those bullet weights,
    or ooh, I haven't tried that powder yet, or ooh, I don't have that manual, etc.

    I need to watch the ooh's, cause the aah's of credit card bills can be painful!

    My current obsession is the Mosin Nagants...

    I'm looking to get a Finnish M39 next if possible!

    Quitting reloading is easy Rusty, I have personally done so on several occasions. :)
