Doc,

Brag on, my friend. You earned it.

Isn't sending lead down range with that kind of accuracy fun?!

This is what handloading is all about.

Well, thanks but shooting from a semi-rest at only 25yds isn't much to brag about.

BUT, reloading consistently accurate ammo is a great challenge and a lot of fun.

FIFTY is a challenge, especially under a timer.
