Just a nice friendly reminder of my firearms and reloading pages...
This is my introductory firearms page. Gives a brief personal background as well as links to my Illustrated Parts Breakdown page and also to many manufacturers and hobby sites.
The Illustrated Parts Breakdown page (currently under construction, but usable). Hundreds of drawings of firearms illustrating the parts and each has an associated legend of the correct name of each part.
This is my introductory reloading page. Gives a brief personal background as well as links to several of my other reloading pages and links to many manufacturers, associations, and hobby sites.
Comprehensive Reloading Data pages. "Comprehensive" is putting it mildly. Thousands upon thousands of listings for calibers with their associated acceptable bullet weights, powder charges and primer selection. Much more than you will ever find in any reloading manual! I have even taken time to highlight the preferred powder and primer choice for each bullet weight in each caliber.
The firearms related software downloading page. Contains the latest reloading manuals from several manufacturers, internal and external ballistic programs, recordkeeping software, group size calcuators, etc. From Alliant to Winchester...
A partial listing of some of the cartridges I currently reload. Including data as published in the commercially available manuals, brief history of the cartridge, my personal experiences with that cartridge, most accurate load I obtained with that cartridge, the chrony measurements obtained with that loading (all chrony measurements are made at exactly 15-feet from the muzzle), the sighting equipment utilized and the firearms in which that cartridge was tested.
No reloading data here, but this is a comprehensive listing of the currently available primers, powders and bullets suitable for reloading for that cartridge. Also includes pictures of loaded and technical drawings of case dimensions.
My "catch-all" area. Company histories; general information (cartridge types, conversion tables, emergy formulae, recoil formulae, glossary); bullet information; case information; powder information (powder burning rates, powder storage, powder density); game information (the addresses, phone numbers and e-mail address and links to all the fish and game departments in the USA and Canada, table of game speed, table of game weights); links to my chat room, message forum, live voice chat room and firearms related software download page); the NRA corner (the latest Armed Citizen, President's Column and Standing Guard articles); and finally the mix'n'match area which includes loading bench plans, sample targets I have shot, and a discussion on the different ways to measure a group and do target analysis.

Wow! The best site I've seen in a long time. You sure have put a lot of effort into it, and it shows. I really enjoyed your comments on the various calibers. Thanks for letting us know about it.

If any of you haven't checked out this labor of love, why not take a gander? It's well worth the time, even if you don't reload.

Reading "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal," by Ayn Rand, should be required of every politician and in every high school.

Ricciardelli, I've been to your sight before. Excellent. It's a bookmark.
