It's fun to wander over to the friendliest site just to see how many micro-interests can be catered to on a "Shotgun" website. Sad to say, conflicting personalties on the "Reloading" forum have led to schism - the "Back to Basics" crowd can just take their oversimplifications to "Reloading for Dummies" while the those of a more epicurean bent can stay with "Reloading" and not have their heels nipped by those "Follow a Reloading Guide" Luddites anymore.

Reloading must be, as are so many things, a lot more complicated than it appears.

I think you should stir things up there and ask about duplex loads.

I just think it is great that 2 powders of different backgrounds and different ability can work together for the good of an elitist 28 gauge enthusiast.

A small correction here. It's not really going to be called "Reloading for Dummies;" that's just a sobriquet coined by the sub-forum's opponents. It's going to fill a yawning gap-in-support and will be called "Reloading Euro Hulls."

I am not making this up.

Howard, that's the way all of us talk at gun clubs in Minnesota. I thought that the rest would feel insulted if I were to talk down to them.

Followers of Elmer Keith experimented with duplex loads in rifles and some in handguns thinking they were emulating Elmer.

Johnny, "The friendliest gun forum on the Internet" is the official motto over there. The irony is that when they get annoyed they are the bitchiest, most highhanded, closed-minded, and know-it-all crowd you can imagine. Far worse than here when given the chance. And harder to persuade, if you can believe it!

You think _we_ pick fly-specks out of the pepper!

The other day there was a complaint about a change in the format. I suggested that a possible improvement would be the addition of a category entitled, "Pictures Of Women With Large Boobs." Sadly, my plea fell on deaf ears. Luckily, though, Brian's earlier post inspired an explosion of creative energy.

Category--DUPLEX LOADS

Reloading is as complex as you want to make it. As always proceed with caution.

As for topics, I say five categories are enough unless Arts and Entertainment and Obituaries are considered. How about gun related stock reports?
