Anybody on this forum reload or work on their own firearms anymore?
Trapper L said:I load for several of the Gov't trappers and independents. I also build rifles for myself but I won't do it for anybody else. Too much liability and you never know what some moron will stick in a gun. Like a 38-55 a trapper, of all people, complained about that he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn after I worked on it. This was a nice 1885 Winchester complete with tang sights and double set trigger. I had him bring the gun and ammo to a local range and he was already set up when I got there. He shot the first shot and it didn't make it to the 100 yd target. I looked at the brass and asked if this was the ammo he had been shooting. He said yes. I told him don't ever call me again. He was shooting 30-30 ammo in it. I still have the brass. You just never know about folks. But I do wish this part of the forum was more active.
