The time has come, the Walrus said

Tonight it begins, if you all want, I can demonstrate how I do what I do but it may well be an egregious bore.

I have long settled on what calibers matter to me:

.45 ACP
12 GA.
.458 LOTT

These are what I will load every cartridge case/hull that I have, for.

(45) RCBS
(.475) LEE
(.458) RCBS

I have more expensive DIES, to include Hornady, Redding. L.E. Wison, Bonanza, etc. but these have worked best for me in those calibers.

I believe in those calibers with all that is in me. I neither need nor want a semi-automatic rifle.

Powders and primers will be from my stock. All bullets will be cast from my alloy. Cartridge cases will be mixed headstamp, of course.

Let me if anyone wants a step by step video of the LONG process. Tonight I turned on the tumble.
" If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.
A room without books is like a body without a soul.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.
A man of courage is also full of faith.
He only employs his passion who can make no use of his reason.
A friend is, as it were, a second self.
While there's life, there's hope.
True nobility is exempt from fear.
Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable than fidelity. Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind."

I am very interested! The last reloading I have done was last year, on my lap loader. I would really enjoy it, if it is not too much trouble for you.
Jay Gibson- 1966-2015. You will always be with us brother. Rest easy in Valhalla till we all meet up again.

Of what value is the preservation of humanity without the preservation of freedom?
WAY too many people on earth too few dogs....
I really believe I am getting more and more anti social as the days fly by.....

Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
