My First Lil' one was a .41 Mag Starting load.....It has grown into many personalitys before it mellowed out and liked to just have fun vs. Push Nuclear Magnum all the time.....My the evolution cycle.....Although every once in a while it comes out to play when someone wants to see what a Magnum is all about.

Weak Knees

The first time you cranked the press, and started to reload. NOT knowing for sure, if you had your act together and all would go well. OR, Kaboom! Man I screwed up, after all that reading and warnings.
It does get easier, as time goes on load after load. I'm new to reloading, have much to learn. It helps to have the support of those very expierenced on this forum.
