This is a personal blog about reloading, or handloading, bullet casting and shooting. I am not an expert, only a hobbyist that enjoys what I do. I hope my experiences will spark an interest or rekindle your interest in reloading. I will answer questions about pertinent topics. I will not “blow smoke.” If I don't know, I will say so. I may have guidance about where you can go to get an authoritative answer. I will share that with you if I am able.
