    I have my new Lee turret press all set up. I read the ABC's of Reloading as well as the Lee
    book. Lyman 49 is on the way....Feeling overwhelmed by bullet & powder issues/option! Each
    source with diffe...

    Thank you JTJ for the quick response!Have my new press set up...reading 2 different
    manuals...thought I was getting ready to reload and hit that huge pile of powder/bullet data!

    I am new to reloading and am looking at a number of load data charts. Many cite test

    I like the Walther PPS. Less than an inch thick and available in 9mm & .40. Have the 9mm. Comes
    with three magazines - 5/6/7 in single stack. The 5 shot is about an inch shorter than 7 shot.
    Good for ...

    I'm a lefty who is right-eye dominant. Slowing training my left eye by wearing a flip-down
    opaque cover over right eye. Clips to glasses. I have no problems with a Walther PPS 9mm. Great
    for CCW too -...

    Just got a Ruger No. 1 in .308. Any suggestions for target/range ammo?I saw earlier post about
    the Herter Ammo in .308. Its $10 for a box of 20 at Cabelas. Is it decent stuff? Remanufactured

    I don't hunt large game at this time. Just birds with shotgun. Perhaps next year - but its been
    years since deer hunting. Thinking more for of a range gun for distance shooting. And, to be
    honest, I d...

    Good question ACRhino...partly the way I like to range-shoot. Taking my time. Clear head,
    exhale, fire, repeat...I have a couple of nice bolt action rifles (.22 & .223). Semi-auto is
    not for me. Looke...
