    He means you have only posted 35 times. Usually that means someone who is just starting out. You have shown that you have advanced skills in ammo making. Everyone wants to know if you made your own tooling (dies) or purchased them and if so from whom.

    Your avatar looks like an ammunition prediction line.

    Like jdfoxinc said : Huvius was giving you a LARGE compliment
    He was saying that for a new poster on this site
    you have done exceedingly well and have great talent.

    Now for my post
    I see from your avatar you have lots of punch presses
    WAY COOL

    Scroll back a few months and recheck kutil's lead wire extruder powered by a skidsteer loader.

    I've lathe turned some brass to see if I could do it.
    Never drawn it.

    That's a lot of work. Looking forward to seeing more.
    That's a blanking die and several draw dies.
    I'm assuming this is for black powder or light charge smokeless?
    Though you've done some beautiful work, balloon head cases aren't very strong.
    Then again, if you're putting in the effort to make brass, it must be for something old, odd and fairly rare.

    Color me very interested. Please DO post lots of pictures.

    Don't take my comment on your low post count as a criticism. You clearly have the skill and knowledge that few others do and I expected that at your advanced ability you would have more posts.
    I for one hope you flood the forum with posts and share your methods.
    I have a vague idea of how cases are made but never even thought of the possibility of doing it myself!
