Reloading changes in the wind?
Tuesday, January 08, 2013
Another day where several employees called in sick. Everyone has to adjust and pick up the slack. The flu bug is hitting many and so far i haven't had it, but only a matter of time I think.
Plus our General Manager and Store Manager were at a meeting so I was asked to run the staff meeting. I think we were done in record time. I make the meetings short and sweet.
By the time I got off work the sun had disappeared. Earlier I had to deliver a grocery order to a customer and it was sunny and warm. Bu 3pm the wind was blowing and there were grey skies. No walkies tonight outside, but we did do a lot of walking while we were out and about. I have 9060 steps so far, so that is pretty good.
We have been discussing switching to Berger bullets for reloading. They are more expensive than what we have been shooting. Cost is around $33 a 100 compared to $18 or so a hundred of the Hornady bullets we have been reloading and shooting for F Class leagues and practice. These bullets are supposed to be more aerodynamic and handle the wind better for long distances. We bought a Berger bullet reloading book tonight at Cabela's to look over and study. A reloading book is basically like a cookbook for reloading and building up a load for different calibers. Most manufacturers have their own reloading books that gives a reloader a starting place for different powders and how much for working up a load. Once you find a load that works and shots well with your gun, it kind if becomes a "pet" load that you use over and over and share with other shooters if asked. Kind of like if you bring a favorite dish to an event and people like it, they ask for the recipe. Same with shooting. if you reload and someone asks you what load your shooting, how it works etc, you can share the load data with them.
I finally get a day to sleep in! My mom has a meeting to attend in the morning, so she will call me when she gets back and we will have lunch together then. We will go for her eye doctor appointment around 1pm. I will need to drive since they usually dilate her eyes for that. With the cast off her wrist she is driving again which makes her feel better about her independence. She doesn't drive much, but today she went and got her hair washed and cut which was a great feeling for her to be able to do it herself.
I need to work on getting some of my model photos reloaded online for one of my online show groups. When webshots closed down, the group moved to Smugmugs. Haven't had a chance to check it out yet. Hopefully I can work on that abit here and there.
Off to bed now don't want to stay up too late.
