I grew up in a Family that Hunted, Fished, Cast both bullets and F-Weights, Shot Extensively and Reloaded just about every round sent down range.
I actually thought that folks who shot factory ammo where too poor to load their own.
I read Keith, O'Connor and many others. I remember when Handloader Mag started about 1965. My Dad was thrilled to find a Mag that touched on more then Hunting and casual reloading.
There was nothing new, but it was interesting.
I haven't learned anything from a Magazine in more years then I can remember.
However I have learned a great deal since I got on the internet a few years ago. In particular about alloy hardness, bullet sizing and Lube. And of course Powder Coat.
You folks here have helped me recall a lot of stuff I just plain forgot during all those years of Cowboy Shooting and being laid up.
As far as the misinformation that is still get passed on in Mag format, I still get down right passed off when I read the same old trash.
Even Handloader Mags you-tube channel is not immune to this misinformation, i.e. their recent review of a spaghetti SA in .44Spl advocating the use of "hardcast" bullets.
I loved Skeeter's "Me & Joe" stories, and old "Dobe Grant". But He was a Shooter and reloaded as a means to an end.
When My Subscriptions to guns & Am/handgunner run out I'll once again explain to My Wife & Daughter to Please NOT renew the blasted subscriptions again.
Thanks, Guys for all the Great info you've given me these past years. I shoot straighter and cleaner with what I've learned HERE.
Long time Caster/Reloader, Getting back into it after almost 10yrs. Life Member NRA 40+yrs, Life S.A.S.S. #375. Does this mean a description of me as a fumble-fingered knuckle-draggin' baboon. I also drool in my sleep. I firmly believe that true happiness is a warm gun. Did I mention how much I HATE auto-correct on this blasted tablet.
