    Good job socal. You are now officially addicted to reloading. that high youre feeling will only intensify as you gain experience. It is very rewarding and carries a strong sense of pride to shoot the X ring out with ammo you made yourself.

    It is soooo second nature to me at this point [reloading]
    but the 'high' still never goes away !
    It has become another item on my 'honey-do' list.......
    "we gonna shoot tomorrow ? many rounds
    you got for me?........"
    And MamaOzo can shoot up some rounds !!!!!!!!:AR15firing::AR15firing::AR15firing::AR15firing:

    Very cool, reloading adds another dimension to your shooting experience.

    Way to go. Making them is almost as much fun as shooting them. Start now keeping records of what and how you make your reloads.

    Good for you. You're now an official member of the reloading fraternity.

    Now, isn't someone supposed to cut his shirttail off or something?

    They look great. Congratulations and well done.

    Nothing feels better than squeezing the trigger, hearing the bang, seeing the group and knowing that "I made that".

    I like research, so part of my fun is finding the best load combinations for my guns. That's where the reloading log comes into its own. That, and self-stick reactive targets. I peeled my best targets off the paper and stuck them in my shooting notebook along with load notes.

    Enjoy the reloading and shooting the fruits of your labor!!

    It's even more of a rush when you pull the trigger on your first reload---congrats, they look nice.

    That is awesome - looks like those dies are working just as they should. Sorry it took me a couple extra days to get them out to you but hey you can't beat free :)

    I am very happy I could extend some good cheer to begin your new year.
    Enjoy, be safe and look forward to seeing the range report on the loads.

    YEAH! You are going to have to let us know how they shoot. I just started reloading 9mm although I have had the equipment and gun for quite some time and plan to shoot some as soon as I get over being sick.
