A new member from Kansas

Postby Yosemite Sam » 26 Dec 2019 20

Greetings to the board!

I'm a fairly new hand loader, and am teaching myself via several classic lee loaders. I'm in the clergy and a member of a religious community, and the simplicity and affordability of the lee loaders makes reloading very feasible.

I've been reloading for a 30-06 and a 22-250, but will eventually break open the kits for the 357/38 and the 7.62x54r. I'm partial to Savage bolt guns as I'm a lefty, and I love a good wheel gun. Lever guns catch my eye, too. I'm partial to the calibers that get labels like "old school," or workhorse etc.

A 300 Savage recently came into the picture, and it's only a matter of time.

I'm interested in anything outdoors, subject to the limits of middle age and an ample waistline. I love hunting and flyfishng in particular, but anything rod or gun is great. My ideal vacation normally involves a campfire. My other interests are U.S. history (I teach at a small college and am working on a graduate degree), and college football.

Welcome to the forum Sam! It sounds like an interesting number of cartridges. I'm a fan of the 300 Savage. I have Savage 99 and a Remington 722 chambered in the cartridge. There is a Savage 45 on GunBroker that is making me crazy, but I've slowed down the gun buying as I'm slowing down.

Hi Sam, welcome from another new guy. The 300 Savage is a wonderful cartridge. I have a 1952 Savage 99 300 Savage wearing a vintage Weaver K4. You can't go wrong with the Lee Loader. I find it relaxing sitting down with my wife and spending the evening knocking out some ammo. She has really come to like reloading also. God gave me the greatest wife. She has her Grandfather,s then father's & now her Savage 99 300 Savage.Anyhow welcome to the club and please pray for our country. Tomorrow is a National day of prayer I am sure you know this though.
