    spent today lifting the mini mill and tramming the head ( getting it straight )

    1/2 a day to get it set as the bench was off by a fly's toe , all sorted now but a waste of a day

    its baby moo moo time as the youngest grandie told me

    i've had 15 calves drop the past two weeks so they've been keeping me busy and i've been buying a few poddy's ( calves mothers reject or are orphaned or just sold off )

    and been running round collecting these as well , lots to do to make a buck

    actually the older ones do, rather proud of them

    the youngest well gotta bad habit of walking under where he shouldn't

    been kicked once ( you know how they push other calves away ?) and messed upon a couple times

    he's 3

    so try to keep him outta it all for now , i've put him in charge of the geese

    they know he's no threat and will take all sorts trash treatment from him

    Nothing better than taking care of livestock and other farm-type activity to build character. The kids are learning more than feeding animals from you. Good work.

    A lot of good people come from farm backgrounds.

    farms really only a 1/2 a day total just spread out and has to be done

    most of my days in the workshop and i'm moving the reloading there as it'll have a view over the yard with the swings and play area where the kids will be when here i'll show it in the morning ( 10pm here now)

    kzink77 welcome to the forum. You have found the place that is full of friends, help, and good fun. If you have reloading questions, this is the right place. Be careful, though; you'll find yourself spending as much time here as you do reloading, eating, and sleeping. It's addictive here.

    You have a great setup there; looks airy, lots of room.

    Thanks for the picture.

    Welcome to the forum! That shelving on your right will come in handy in the near future! My reloading bench isn't much bigger than yours, and my problem IS storage! Good luck, have fun!

    thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I have reloaded a lot of differant types of ammo with my dad at his house, he has the piggyback progressive stuff for 9mm and .45 acp and does alot of 30.06 match shooting, this is my first setup of my own though, still need to get a powder measure and some other supplies but have enough to keep me busy for awhile

    Mine is kinda messy right now. With dove season here and the Kinsley Kids shoot coming up I have been loading 2 to 3 hundred shells each day.

    Looks like it's coming together, maybe slowly, but definitely surely.

    Finally got started on my reloading room.
    I took over one corner of the garage 6X6 with door in the corner.
    The garage is a mess BUT I'm getting my reloading bench:D
