    I hate you all

    Now look what you have made me do!!!

    Picking up my 45/70 tomorrow. So you know what that means. 《sigh》

    Now I have to get dies and now I'll have to get a mold or two.

    It also means I have to step up my lead finding.

    I really do hate all of you.

    Why did you guys make this casting/reloading thing so easy for me to learn.

    Another one bites the dust, or in this case, the boolit.

    And once you have the dies
    And molds, then I just makes sense to get another piece in 45/70.

    And now we will perform more of our voodoo on you. You will have the unbreakable urge to make your own boolit lube!

    Oh yea! Wait till you have a couple molds and one or two do not work so well in your now rifle, then you will go buy another rifle to try those boolits in.
    Bwahahaha, Bwahahaha!

    Wait wait wait. 45-70 rifle is a pretty generic term there. What rifle????? Then after the rifle dies moulds and sizers comes what powder smokeless of BP, what lube, what load level ( there are 3 for the 45-70). Start reading up on the data from several manuals and go from there

    45-70 you better hop up the lead search and get ready for some fun. Great thing is the 45-70 is a meat gatherer even at 11,00 ft/sec

    Yeah.......I get ya. Since being blessed by the fine folks of this forum, I've had a 43 Spanish Roller, a 45-70 Trapdoor, and a 43 Spanish Peabody Military Rifle somehow follow me home. You can't fathom the confused state I exist in everytime I sit at my bench. .439 for the Roller....... .448 for the Peabody, and yeah, THEN a Trapdoor.

    I'm with you. Damn you all!!!!!

    I really hate it when you buy a gun just so you can reload something different.

    This is the first caliber I own > .308

    I confess, I revel in your angst.
    Still, you have a long way to even try to catch-up

    Those boolits that start with a 4 use a lot of lead..... time to start scrounging if you haven't already!
