There’s a first time for everything. The first time you meet someone, the first time you shoot a gun, the first time…well, you get the idea.
This evening, we had dinner with Borepatch and his family. Afterwards, the discussion came around to reloading, one thing led to another, and then this happened.
Let’s call it “Borepatch Makes a Cartridge”. It was a .45ACP cartridge, made on a Lee press that was already configured and adjusted. The opportunity to really learn this art will have to come another time. The steps from a pile of empty range brass to new ammo are many, and at several places, mistakes are possible. Still, perhaps the hook was set. His ear to ear grin would suggest that.
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experience.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
