I've been doing a lot of shooting at the range lately. Met 2 interesting fellows, Wimpy (sp?) Martin of McGaheysville and Fred Zimmer of Hairston.

Wimpy is originally from Craigsville and shoots a TC Contender carbine set up like mine, blue on Rynite. Gave me a BUNCH of brass, over 200 each .30-06 and .30-30 plus some other cartridges. Those on the .30-06 case head I'll be reforming to 7.65x54mm Argentine. Some of the .30-30 will be converted to .30 Herrett. The RP .30-06 cases will go to my son-in-law for reloading with his favorite 165 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip.  (note: as of 13 Apr 2010 I've not given these cases to Ben.  He moved on to a .300 Rem Ultra Mag and now to a 7-08.  I'll use them for the Garand.)
