I feel ya', chief. I got up early yesterday morning (0500 on a Saturday isn't particularly unusual for me, but I digress). Walked into the kitchen to put on coffee, exterior thermometer showed 80º, and there was the morning's dew, HEAVY on all of the windows. I thought to myself "eff my life!!!" I could have lived with the heat and humidity, but going out there would have meant a spray-down with deet on top of everything else.You’re not alone and for me it’s only about 105 in there now.
If you did not feel claustrophobic, the prescription would be to purchase more components and cram them into your loading area until you did feel claustrophobic!I'm so glad I'm not alone in sometimes just going to the basement to stare at bullets and brass or peruse loading manuals.
My reroading setup is about a quarter of my basement... And it isn't enough! I feel claustrophobic!!!! I NEED HELP!!!
I would like a 30-40 Krag in Ruger no.1Tim,
May I suggest hug therapy or possibly a comfort animal? I think these may help as you haven’t gotten to the point of rolling around in a golden wildebeest loincloth in a pile of 500 grain Swift A-Frames while chanting load data. Not to offend anyone that does such of course. I have had some of the best conversations with myself in the reloading room although some of the arguments get quite heated at times especially over CBL and CRF vs. Push feed!
We can work through this, maybe a new No. 1 in 30-40 Krag is just what the Dr ordered!
I started at 16 in the basement on my Dad's workbench. This was sometime in 1974.Reloading is therapy. There is something complete in you when you make your own ammo and get results that you can eat. My reloading room is a foldable black and decker workbench with my reloader bolted to a board clamped to it. I'm needing to talk to my wife about a reloading room!
A requirement for my next house is a 3-car garage. The 3rd stall will be walled off and have hvac pumped in.I started at 16 in the basement on my Dad's workbench. This was sometime in 1974.
Then I got my own bench, in the basement.
Fast forward 44 years, about 20 moves, and numerous iterations of benches and rooms (including a couple of closets!) to where now as a more-or-less empty-nester, I can take as much space as I want!
It was a long time coming, and I am enjoying it!
Best of luck in your progression!
Yes....therapy...but sometimes therapy has side-effects!I agree with those that think reloading is therapeutic. Just look at all the money you save by not having to go to a "shrink." RELOADERS UNITE !!!!
Check your email....fast!I was very surprised to find federal 215M primers on the shelves at the two gun stores in Darwin, Australia! If I thought I would have got away with it they would have all been in my suitcase. I’m down to about 10k and getting nervous again. Finding 215M primers here are as hard as finding a rational thought from Maxine Waters!
