Thx Voelkels. That's the kind of intro to reloading I was kind of hoping I'd see.

Tell me: How many misfires, hangfires, or the like have you encountered with home loads as opposed to factory? I ask particularly b/c of your mention of customizing a home defense round; I've heard some say that in that type of scenario the last thing you want is a home load due to the potential failure of the round. Do split casings (when they split) offer any sort of hazard to the gun?

It sounds fascinating, and I think I'd enjoy doing it quite a bit (in addition to the savings) ... but alas, I'll have to wait for now, until I can find more open spaces of time.

Cheers,
Tim
