Suffice it to say, a few of you might have been keeping track of things.

I used to be a reloading king, then the divorce.

Skip forward 2 years and now I stand.

Able to start doing workups and get back into the game.

I am very surprised that primers and certain powders are back on the market. Not at the same prices I was buying up stuff 5 years ago though...


I cant wait to have at least 10k in primers for every caliber I load for and to have x2 that in projectiles.


Life is good :)

Just this last week I have been able to load for a new .45 and do some workups for a new powder in .223 using some Hornady 75gn hpbt's :) Sweet!

A faint light at the end of the tunnel!

Good for you... Been there, not once, but TWICE! Even the best (read easiest) divorces are still pretty ugly and it always takes a little while to get back on your feet and straightened out. Once you're all set up again it'll feel great.

Been there done that, except that my divorce and big sell off was about 10 years ago. I've been able to buy back almost all of the guns I had to sell, and am now working on getting set up to handload again. Luckily before I had to sell everything I was able to load lots of ammo, everything I had components for. It's lasted me a long time, and I still have a lot of that ammo.

Welcome back!

I bet you've got a serious case of sticker shock comparing prices to a few years back....but hey, it was worse last year .

My (recently divorced) brother is stuck with paying 65K/year in alimony, so consider yourself lucky.
