If you have been out reading reviews on what kind of products to purchase for reloading, you probably have come across a number of my reviews before. When people read them, they automatically assume that somehow or another I was paid by some company to come up with this review. Let me assure you that that is not the case.
I started writing these reviews because I have been a gun enthusiast for nearly 50 years now. I have tried virtually every kind of weapon imaginable, and have spent most of my life reloading and reusing my own cartridges. This has led me to have a great deal of experience and knowledge related to weapons and ammunition in general, and so I thought I would share my knowledge with you.
I want you to know this because I am not paid by anyone to write this, nor does anyone pay me to provide a positive review of their product. I am simply trying to give you some advice and wisdom from an old guy who has quite a bit to share.
