It's always nice to increase the Forms membership by one. Pull up a chair anytime Doug. Yup! Our endeavor is to entertain everyone.

Hello from Colorado. Been a shooter for about 40 years. Mostly hunting in my early days. For the last 20 years it's been tactical and self defense. Glad to have found this site. Cheers!

Thomas here, and brand new to this forum. A rifle guy all my life, but recently taken a liking to single shots. Currently have a Ballard, a custom Ruger, and two Luxus 11s. Read a bunch about the DeHaas-Miller, but never handled one. I see where they have been praised as the Cadillac of single shots, and condemned for having trigger and lock up issues. Love to hear from any of you on the pros and cons of the DeHaas-Miller, how it measures up to your favorites, and what one in excellent condition without issues might be worth.

Best regards, Thomas

Hello, from the red dirt of Oklahoma.

I've been lurking here for some time, finally signed up. I look forward to participating, and sharing whatever knowledge I've gained.

I started reloading around 1987, but there is always something new, and always something to learn.

I've worked for our crazy Uncle, ran an automotive machine shop, was a heavy-line mechanic, chased a few warm 'n willings, and shot many pounds of powder. I've even been known to hoist a few cold ones, although not in the last 20 years (!).

The years are starting to catch up, so I've settled down somewhat. Not that interested in rip-snorting revolver loads anymore, but I'll still run off a few.

See you on the board.

New to TFL

Good day all, my name is Chip, (KragNut). And as the name implies, I am a big fan of the Krag rifle. I am 56 yrs. old, been reloading metallic cartridges and shotgun shells since I was 16. Recently purchased a Savage 840 in .30-30 Win. and had it converted to .30-30 Ackley Improved, trying now to find a good accurate load with 130 gr. bullets. I am looking forward to hearing from any other Ackley Improved gunners and Krag fans.

Lurked here every now and again, figured was time to create an account. Originally from the NE, been in the S, now west of the Rocky's.

Shooting since I was 7, loading pistol since I was in my early 20's, over half my life over again I mostly handload for bench and LRP, but still load everything other than shotgun.

From Namibia. Been hunting and shooting for 20+ years. Really envy the Americans for the choice of guns and affordability of components.

New member here. I've been a member of various specialty gun forums for years. I'm in the deep south, southern MS to be exact (somewhat).

I dabble is just about everything gun related. Reloading, a little gunsmithing, NFA stuff, etc.

Hello from Northeast Ohio. find me registered after lurking around a couple of forms. Just looking to get some information and maybe share a little bit if I can help anyone. Into a little bit of everything concerning firearms. Mostly range / self-defense, but go hunting once in awhile when I have time. Have not tried reloading yet though. It's on the list.

Have been lurking a number of years, and thought I would walk out of the shadows. I have been shooting, reloading, and competing for 50 years,
