Just joined today. I've been shooting close to 40 years
(I'm 47) and been thinking about reloading for about
25..it's always been in the back of my mind.

I finally decided to give it a go. I've been reading up
on it for a couple of months and will probably get
started this weekend. I bought a single stage to learn
on and will see where it takes me.

Wish me luck.

Wecome South Paw.

A single stage is certainly something that most will always find a need for and certainly a good way to start.

I started out in the mid 70's and sort of pieced my reloading bench together gradually as money would permit. Mostly picked up my gear at a not so local gun shop. The internet makes it so much easier to learn the hobby as well as find the supplies and tools.

Welcome Southpaw,
Just started reloading myself several years ago. The people on this site are awesome. Decades of experience and all are happy to share as am I.
Happy to have you.

I'm a software developer with a chemistry and metallurgy background.

Started shooting in my late 20's. Been loading and casting for about 8 years. Load 357, 10mm, 44, 45ACP, 45LC, 45WM, and 454C.

Started 'smithing seriously about 4 years ago. Have had the good fortune to have picked the brains of some of the best.

My shooting partner, a man of vast loading and casting experience, and a crack shot, died last year, and I've been a little cranky since then... So don't pay any mind if I seem to get overwrought about nothing.

Oh yeah, I'm cross-dominant and can't even hold a rifle! Intend to learn to shoot Bullseye left-handed if I can get my recoil addiction under control.

Hi Safari100, thank you. As far as guns... I like target shooting all guns, calibers. Right now I am mostly shooting 500 S&W mag, 460, 445 super mag, and 357 maximum. I also love to reload..

Welcome and Howdy
Have no experience with the the 500 S&W or the 445 super
yet the others are great but pricey to shoot and have
tons of options so reloading should be the place for
you. Looking forward to hearing about your experience
especially with those ya have listed.

Hi REM1875, Yes they are a bit pricy to shoot but once one has the brass it's not too bad. I too look forward with conversations with you. Have a great day!

Hello, another new guy, new to the site
and basically new to reloading... tried it
a little as a kid with my dad's Lee Loader
but never really got into it at the time.

I'm currently shooting, high to low: 30-
06, 303 British, 30-30, 44 mag (Ruger
Deerfield 99/44) 12g, 45 ACP and a 9mm
revolver.
I'm especially looking forward to cooking
up some good hog and deer loads for the
99/44 and the 303 British. That one is a
17" barrelled sporter, a super quick
handling little bolt gun, perfect for the
brush or even a box blind, especially with
a red dot... the only problem is:
303B+short barrel=(flash*loud)ouch
Anyways, looking forward to being a part
of the community and learning as much as I
can...

I'm 82 years old and I have been reloading
since about 1958. A friend and myself chipped
in and bought a Lyman "C" press for eight
dollars. My friend is still using it. I have
bought quite a bunch of presses since then.
