    I have for several months been letting my kids help me prep cases and pull the lever to seat bullets to let them experience making a bullet. As you can tell from the video my daughter enjoys it. It also lets us spend some time together while reloading.

    That's cool. I do the same with my 4 year old boy. He enjoys it.

    By the way...tell your dad, Phil Robertson, that we support him. :D

    My 4 year old son helps me often too. His favorite tasks are pulling the press handle and dumping my powder measure. I wish I could get him to enjoy brass prep!
    Last year I was working on a buddy's 22-250 and I had my son putting the charged cases in the shell holder, putting the bullets on the casemouth and pressing seating them. My friend said he'd never shot a more accurate round in that gun and got a kick out of me telling him my 4 year old loaded them.

    I started out like that too! By the time I was 10 I could load my own ammunition (with my Dad's supervision of course). Great to see others doing the same with their children!
