Reloading 6.5 Creedmoor Beginning to End with Mr.Revolverguy

Every day I see more people starting to reload for many different reasons. Naively, most think it is going to save them money. I once thought the exact same thing after 22 years I have come to realize reloading allows me to practice more, than if I were buying factory. A positive side effect is it calms the savage beast. Reloading is a very relaxing hobby. Many times throughout this journey I have found myself loading more than I was shooting. Scrounging brass on the range just to reload it. Carefully measuring and weighing factory rounds before pulling them apart in awe of the magic I would often find. If you find yourself with these same symptoms you might be a reload-a-holic, Hi I am Mr.Revolverguy and I am a reload-a-holic.

Therapy Session

As my therapy session for the week I have decided to share with the group some of my reloading procedures. On display are the tools that have made loading easier and a joy for me. From day one of adventuring into this hobby of reloading, rifle brass prep was always tedious and just down right boring to me. The right tools improves efficiency and makes this as enjoyable as other hobbies you may have. Now I understand what my dad meant when he would say, “Son, with the right tools and a creative mind most anything is possible.”

I do not show the reloading manuals in this video that I start every session with. Anyone watching this video is highly encouraged to never take a load from the Internet and just start loading, that is very dangerous. Remember you are not only capable of hurting yourself following that practice but also the people around you at the range. So always use safe reloading practices which starts with owning at a minimum two loading manuals. Fair warning though, you could end up like me with a bookshelf full of them and comparing loads of yesteryear to loads of today — did I mention I am Mr.Revolverguy and I am a reload-a-holic.

Are you a reload-a-holic?
