I have been reloading for 30+ years. I started casting and powder coating about 2 1/2 years ago. I have been casting fishing lures since I was in high school. I grew up around firearms since I was a baby. My dad was an avid collector and had several antique firearms hanging on the walls. I started shooting when I was 10 years old. I used to work at one of the largest gun store/shooting ranges in the Denver metro area. We we were a class 3 dealer and I had to know everything about the weapons. I appraised firearms for insurance companies. I was the head range safety officer and taught reloading classes. I have been to several different firearms academies on their dime.
