a younger cousin of mine discovered competitive shooting. i mean he is HOOKED. he also got a dillon and started reloading. this drought is killing him, but he’s weathering it fine.
lots of older shooters at his club have been a great resource for him. i help out when i have an opportunity, but i’ve never reloaded automatic cartridges before... well i just started reloading 45acp (but am no where as comfy with that as i’ve been with my cowboy ammo).
I liken reloading to driving a standard transmission vehicle. it’s less common, but way more rewarding imho.
