New guy from NE Illinois (NO-NOT CHICAGO)

Postby popeye59 » 13 Mar 2019 09

I live in NE Illinois, northeast Lake County to be more precise. I've been reloading for a little over 5 years. I bought a Lee Classic 4-hole turret press to start on and haven't had a need or desire to change or expand to any other press. I currently load for .38/.357, 9mm, .45ACP, .45Colt, 300BLK, .223/5.56, and 30.06 (for my M-1). I've got a die set for 9mm MAK but haven't started loading for that. Signed up here because I foresee all the Facebook groups that are pro 2nd Amendment will soon be gone or so heavily suppressed that they will be useless to use, and MEWE sorta sux.

Welcome, and I can empathize with the Not Chigago comment. I grew up in South East Michigan. Toledo was about the same distance as Detroit, but people always assumed I was from the D city.

Welcome !

I don't load the Mak or 300 but I do load cast in the rest of them .
I used to be from Nevada , no the real one not Las Vegas or the Reno metroplexes . Now I'm on the west edge of Arkansas (Are can saw by law) I'm not convinced it was a good move yet but I'm thinking it may not have been as ugly as it seems at first glance .
