    Highway 6 is closed, so we detoured and went shooting in Vernonia instead.

    But it got dark at four.

    Anyone know where to shoot this late? (Tonight even?) Some place you can flip on the high beams, obviously.

    Thanks!

    Makes me wonder what it would cost to reload those babies! Heck for that price, whether you reload them or not, I HOPE you are saving all the brass!! :laugh:

    Yeah of course ive been saving the brass. I need to get a press asap, but reloading should be around $1 to $1.5 a shot, but it just depends on the bullet.

    Thanks a lot for that info zero! I haven't had the chance to look around for any .50 reloading resources yet.

    Not that I've got too much info for you, but when Joe and I went to Cabela's to buy our press, the guy helping us mentioned that the press we bought could be used for anything up to a .50.

    :) Just a thought!
