I did a crazy thing today

As I wait to purchase reloading supplies I did a crazy thing. I had the itch to reload so I went to the press and looked at it. I found that it was dirty... so I started cleaning it. Next came shellplates, dies and stuff like scales. Heck I even moved powder to a semi order.

It's called "nesting" you are about ready to get another gun.

Red Dog I am glad I am not the only one who does things like that. I even shared your post with my wife. (For the record, her reply was "So he is crazy also.")

When I am waiting on her to make her decision on what she is going to purchase, I will front the powder containers. Then re-stack the bullets, straighten out the primers, etc.

I do the same thing when she is in the thrift stores. While looking at the used books, I have to put them in some sort of order.

But if you were to see my reloading bench, you would think I did not clean anything. It sort of catches everything and gets cleaned off when I reload.

Do you spend any time Reloading?
My definition of Gun Control--- A steady grip and hitting your target.

"In God we trust, all others are suspects."

"If I shoot all the ammo I am carrying, either I won't need any more, or more won't be of any help".

My "reloading room" is on my enclosed porch along with my tools and storage... needless to say things get crowded.
