Thread: What a wonderful activity

    Default What a wonderful activity

    I am sure there are some out there who might think me a bit off for feeling this way, not on this forum, of course, but I really love reloading, been doing it a long time, privately and commercially. I have had a terrific shop set up with multiple Star reloaders and single stage presses with all the necessary scales and trimmers, and lots of primers, powder, bullets, etc. I've homesteaded with only a board nailed to a stump using c-clamps for the press, but I've always found a way to continue my passion for it. There is something therapeutic about this normally repetitive activity, something basically productive as many things are where you assemble simple parts to create a finished product. Then too, it is great to go out and put many small holes in a minimal area, making sweet booming sounds as well. Yeah, I love it and even though I have done it at times just for economy, there is always something more to the process. I highly recommend it to anyone with the desire and mindset to undertake it in a methodical and safe manner. Find someone who loves it too and make a good friend as well. I have done so over the years. though many of them are gone now, I have lots of memories of sessions on the bench and even when opinions heat up the air. It's been sweet.

    You put it very well man. Reloading is one of those skills that still gets passed on from person to person on a personal level (as opposed to professional) for the most part.

    Even if it weren't cost-effective, I'd still do it because it's extremely relaxing and there is nothing like successfully producing good quality ammo with your own hands. Makes me proud every time and I can't wait to become experienced at it so that I can pass the hobby on to someone new.
