    Wow the timing couldn't be better.

    My reloading equipment should arrive via UPS tommorrow, and I'm eager to begin brewing up some match grade loads for my 30-06.

    Up to know my knowledge has been limited to what I've read, I'll definitely be there to gain some firsthand experience from the experts.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Hope they get some large rifle primers before they start. I bought all they had day before yesterday. Greentops was out.
    I guess that's the Obama economy booster:shock:

    I'd like to attend, even though I already reload w/ a single stage.
    However, I'll be taking my CPD test that day. Training for the 1 1/2 mile run/jog starts tomorrow!

    Something like that, but I'm shooting for the 11:00 mark (the top spot). Pushups should be easy, it's the situps that I'm working on right now.

    ETA: The REALLY hard part is pulling up all my old jobs and bank records for the BG check. Should be interesting with the 21yo "kids" I'll be in there with.

    Sounds like it is probably a well protected house of worship.

    Good luck Sitedzn.

    BTW - Should the title of this seminar have been Reloading Ammunition. I already know how to reload my guns.

    No offense taken Its a topic that I've always wanted to learn more about.

    I always like broadening my knowledge base...makes me a more well rounded instructor. I certainly don't know it all.

    Always thought you had to concentrate on that "pointy end first" stuff.

    Does anyone remember the infamous H&K ("Because we hate you, and you suck") ad with the pointy ends towards the back?:celebrate

    I just bought 5000 CCI 400 primers through Natchez and 10# of powder, so that should keep me busy for a few months.

    I should have bought more primers, they are getting harder to come by
