    gman, I like ALL the stuff you posted and thought really hard about getting the caddy or the Twins system. Two thoughts prevented me from buying something like that. 1. I'm not heavy into competition where I'll ever go to more than local matches, 2. I want to learn to use the equipment that I'll actually don in a SHTF situation. I did get ST Pro dummy rounds and practice reloading while watching TV. The only thing about the dummy rounds is they are a bit light. I filled them up with #7 1/2 and topped them with 5min epoxy. They are much better now. Very good thoughts you have!

    Here I am giving it a try.

    Awesome. Hopefully someday soon I will have the time to do something like this. And I wish they had some of my area. Usually the closest one to me is 2 or 3 hours away

    Hey Joshua,

    It's worth the trip. You should give it a try soon.
