This is my first post and I thought I'd bring up this older thread and add my story. Back when I was a kid I remember helping my Dad and my bachelor uncle Johnny reload their rifle ammo. Johnny had a sporterized 03-A3 that he loaded for speed and accuracy. When I grew up and moved to Colorado he gave me the 06 with instructions to get a deer and an elk with it. When Johnny passed I was given my pick of one item in his sporting items and I requested his reloading equipment. What I got was a Lyman Tru-Line Jr. with an assortment of dies, a powder scale, and an assortment of other reloading tools that included some that were home built. I used that little press for several years to reload my hunting and plinking ammo in 30-06 and .243. When my son got old enough to hunt elk I gave him a .308 and found I could combine the .243 and 06 dies to reload the .308. Now I was reloading for him, too. When he got married and moved away I decided he needed his own reloading equipment. I ran into a Lyman S-T press with .308 dies and an assortment of reloading tools at a garage sale and bought it. As I got older I needed a lighter rifle and got a Browning BLR in .308. the .243 and son's .308 are also BLRs. The old Tru-Line Jr. is too light to case resize and I had been using fire formed cases with no problem but I soon found that my son's .308 fire formed cases would not fit in my .308. He gave me the heavier Lyman press and I started resizing the cases with it. Now I am the reloader for the family. Am I a reloading perfectionist? No. Have my reloads killed any animals? You bet.
