I had a good birthday
My wife, with the help of my next-door neighbor and a friend of the neighbor's at the local sporting goods store, bought me an RCBS single-stage reloading kit, powder, .45 dies, and primers. I had no idea she was going to surprise me with that gift, but I'm a happy man today!
I had mentioned I was thinking about buying the gear to get into reloading but I've always been a researcher, then a do-er. She, however, took the proverbial bull by the horns and bought me some good gear. This weekend I start on a bench (likely one of the Black and Decker Workmate space-saver benches that will double as a fly-tying bench) and hopefully by the middle of next week, I'll be reloading .45 ACP.
Happy birthday to me indeed!
