Hello friends, my name is David. I'm a 54 yr old husband of one , Karen, father of 2, Aaron 20, Hannah 13...... I'm getting back into shooting after a few yrs of being too busy with work and another affliction, archery, to find time to send hot copper down range. Im a DIYer that enjoyed the savage rifle platform before it was common practice to swap a barrel in your living room. Back when folks around here referred to barrel nut guns as " salvage ". Built a little 223 years ago that was a consistent 1/4 MOA shooter with an old Shilens prefit and a laminated factory savage target comp stock I swapped a guy out of because it was too heavy for his liking. That was my first attempt at hand loading too . Shot 52 gr bergers before they offered anything other than a choice of fully swagged target bullets or partially swagged open point " exploaders". I'm in the process of putting a "remage" toy together in 6.5 cm to play around on the little 100 yd range my son and I built next to the house on my little slice of heaven on 16 acres in ga where I live. I will stop with the intro now. I look forward to learning some new tricks from the outstanding shooters ,loaders, and smiths on this interesting site. Thanks for listening and HELLO !
