  • Coming out of the gate in Texas

    Hello hand loaders,

    I’ve been on the fence about reloading for a few years, mostly just target shooting at the Houston area ranges. Also interested in trap shooting and I need to find some land for hog hunting, I really like that.

    My Birthday came around so I finally decided to hand load, and asked for a Hornady Lock n Load as my gift. And that’s where I’m starting from. I intend to make a pest of myself, please have patience with this beginner. I plan to reload for a couple of bolt action rifles to start, probably .243 Win, 6mm Creedmoor and 6.5 mm Creedmoor.

    As as I gain experience I’ll try to be helpful if I can.

                Always glad to see another Texan hop abroad the reloading train, so to speak. There's a few fellers here with some learnin', and then there's other fellers with well over half a century or more time spent at the press. Yet all are more than willing to assist you and extend their personal attention to your efforts. You're in good hands here.

                'bout half a day's drive north of ya.

                  Welcome to the bench. Lots of good people here willing to help with your questions. If you want to do some good range shooting, you'll have to join us in the annual shoot in Breckenridge Tx. It's only once a year but it's a good time by all who attend.

                    Thanks for your welcoming replies, thanks OKL, I’ll have to look up that event in Breckinridge. Looks like a nice waltz across Texas from here.
