I am almost always available to help any shooter by phone or email, (and you
don't need to be one of my customers to get this technical support.) My goal is to support the shooting sports by getting shooters more interested in reloading,
so they can spend more time shooting. Hopefully, that will get them motivated enough to preserve our sport. I believe that only the most motivated
shooters will ever get involved to protect our right to keep and bear arms. You'll find my contact information on the bottom of every page of this website.
It's too bad that so many Americans have been "conditioned" by watching anti-gun propaganda on TV. This has made too many of Americans willing
to sit by and surrender our gun rights. We all need to be more active preserving this important freedom.
Most of us have encountered unusual problems while reloading. Have you ever wondered "What the heck caused this?"
(or) Have you ever wondered why your handloads don't deliver better accuracy than factory loads? While reloading (for the last 40 years), I've
encountered some of the most unusual problems that you can imagine.
The first step in reloading is to be SURE that your reloading information is 100% accurate. The Internet is a great source
of information. However, there is no substitute for using published reloading manuals. In fact, I recommend owning more than one reloading manual
for reference material. Some manuals are much better than others at explaining the basics. Other manuals include articles about the latest reloading
tools and reloading techniques. Sometimes the information about handloads will conflict with other manuals. For those shooters that read these manuals
carefully, you can usually understand why these variations occur. Reloading manuals usually list the
barrel length on their test guns. They also use components made by a variety of different manufacturers.
Internet forums allow you to ask questions to other shooters who "may" have more reloading experience in some particular area. You definitely
can learn a lot from other shooters, but be sure to accept information (as fact) only from someone that actually knows what they're talking about. There's no doubt
that reloading forums are a great source of information, but be careful. Most shooters are willing to help any way they can. However, it's easy
to find well-intentioned shooters that pass on their mistakes, and sometimes language itself obscures what people are really talking about. This can be like
watching a manure spreader in a windstorm. Some reloading problems are almost impossible to fully describe on an Internet forum, because one small piece
of critical information might not get "completely" explained. Always verify new loading information with a published manual whenever possible.
