You will. Takes a little time.

But sooner or later you'll find yourself going to the range on a day when you don't really want to, just to empty some cases so you can reload them.

Same here, and I wouldnt change it for anything.

However, I got them in there with me cranking rounds We are all shooters (8) Myself, not so much comp anymore. But wife and kids are with the exception of my 8 year old we are still in 22 rifle and pistol stages shooting.

My twin 15YO girls shoot .40sw in comp. One's left handed the other is right handed.They are both fun to watch when they shoot .

OH, i was just being facetious. I worked HARD, for a long time, to get the wife into shooting. Shes a former anti gunner. I take great pride in watching them shoot and develop. Too bad i cant get the daughter or eldest boy child to go anymore...but alas, being 18 and 22 respectively, they have "more important" things to do than hang out with dad.

We looked around here for a comp for the youngest to join...but alas there is nothing close/affordable enough that we could get him to on a consistent basis.

My former anti gunner blasting up my hard work...notice the holes high and right of the bull, thats her work as well. Working with her on "hold off".

Lol. Yea I could see that happening. It's amazing how easily entertained we are. My mom and dad use to load there own cig's. I would do it for them for hrs. Then the lts (local tobacco shop) got a machine that did it. I use to open the back and watch it work.

It was Important for me to learn each step on the single stage, but after I felt comfortable with each stage them I moved up with a dillon550 b. don't worry about people bashing lee. It was the cheapest and best decision that I made.

I have dies made by just about everyone. Lee is not as good as some of the others. But the others are not twice or three times as good like the price difference would suggest. I have an old set of RCBS dies that were rusted up terrible. But I bought them that way at a yard sale. A little wd-40 and a wire brush can do wonders. I have three different presses. The Rock Chucker is a great single stage press. I have made tens of thousands of rounds on mine. You really cant go wrong with one. RCBS balance beam scale is expensive...and worth every penny! RCBS powder measure is expensive...and worth every penny. I use the scale to set the measure. With the properly adjusted scale I can charge 100 rounds in about 2 minutes. My measure has never changed in the middle of a run like some other people claim with other brands.
