I have been having a rough few years of ailments and injuries. It seems that my latest with my hands after having multiple surgeries for trigger finger releases on both hands. I am down to having one more on my left hand index finger. It is locking up in the closed position.
The other 3 fingers they did the release on are not locking up anymore, but arthritis seems to be setting in hard. They are hurting really bad and in the mornings they will barely bend at all.
This has really affected the amount of casting and loading that I am able to do. Last night I tried to cast some bullets for my Mosin. I was using a 4 cavity NOE mold and was able to get a little less than 100 bullets before I had to stop. Now today I set out to neck size some brass for the Mosin. I was able to do about 300 pieces before I had to quit.
I have tons of reloading to do before summer gets here. I have at least 5K 223 that needs loaded and that much or more of 9mm. I am thinking I need to teach the old lady how to load! Or I am just going to have to buy my ammo and shoot less.
So I know there all kinds of old farts here. So what do you do?
