For those who may be interested. We lost another of the old guard back in January. If you've never read his "Pet Loads" reports, I think you are missing.
He covered handloading like no one else. He was quite thorough.
He was 99 yrs of age.
RIP Mr. Waters!

Every serious handloader needs a copy of his book. I think Handloader magazine did a tribute article to him this month.

RIP Ken Waters.

I had no idea he was 99!

Really learned tons from him over the years.

God bless Him and his family.

I was wondering how old he must have been recently.
A good book and one I still refer to.

Bet Paul and him are having some interesting discussions!

If it dosent burn gunpowder, diesel fuel or gasoline, it's of no interest to me!!
