    Hello, I've been hunting and reloading since 1962. Before that, I was my Dad's retriever and fetched a lot of pheasant and quail for him. I'm a fan of .223 Rem, .243 Win, 25-06 Rem, 270 Win, 7mm Rem Mag, 30-06, 300 Wby and recently - 30-378 Wby. I hope to join in some good threads with y'all!

    Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you have quite a collection of cartridges.

    Thanks, ShtrRdy. Sometimes keeping all the brass, bullets, primers and powders in order gets a bit overwhelming - but it's all good.

    I'm a newbie here too. Also a big fan of 7mm Rem Mag! Hope to add a .30-06 here in a couple weeks in the form of U.S. Rifle Caliber .30 M1.
    You must be a fan of recoil with the big .30-Roy!

    Yes, I'm working on a load for a new Sendero in 7mm RM using 168 grn Berger VLD - Hunting, Nosler brass, Federal 215 primers and RL-26. It looks real promising. As for the 30-378 - let's just say I've become a huuuge fan of muzzle brakes!
