    I quit lurking a few months ago, I started casting 2 months before that, and have learned so much from this forum.

    Hi,

    I have been on a steep learning curve the past three years of casting. Invested in some bad equipment, then invested in some good equipment and good molds.

    It's thanks to many posters on here that I have gleaned a good deal of knowledge that would of taken me many many years on my own.

    So I stopped lurking and signed up. In the UK it's a little different and difficult to get stuff....but we manage and loads of us shoot cast now.

    Regards

    Dahonis

    Well, the sticky called me out so here I am.
    I'm a soldier, father of three, 28 y/o, from TN but stationed in GA. Complete dabbler - a shooter, beginner blacksmith, novice reloader, occasional hunter, consumer of books.
    I don't have my own press so I only reload when I visit my dad in Tennessee. I mostly reload 7.62x25, .223, and 8mm Mauser. I like ARs, revolvers, and surplus guns, which is pretty much all I own.

    I mostly stick to beginner stuff right now (loaded ~300 .223 over Thanksgiving) but super interested in primitive/experimental/doomsday reloading (safety first!) To include: cast boolits, reforming brass from one caliber to another, converting berdan to boxer, homemade propellants, etc.

    Joined today! Have been an avid Hunter for most of my life, but living in the part of New Yorkistan that I reside hunting is a thing of the past! Three years ago I started to shoot USPSA, Steel Challenge and Bulleyes competition. After a short time I realized for accuracy and economy I had to reload. Started out with a single stage press and am now loading on a Dillion 550C. After reading about fifteen books and reloading over ten thousand rounds of ammo I realize how much I don't know! I cast my first ingots from scrap lead yesterday and am looking forward to learning about how to cast my own bullets for the pleasure of the sport. I will have to really dig into the info in this site because with a Lee hardness tester my ingots are about 8 bhn and I will have to figure out how to alloy them harder and what hardness I need for the loads I'm shooting. Waiting for the Lyman Cast Bullets Handbook and watching some videos on You Tube. It is a pleasure to find people who have the same interests!
