Wonder how many truly famous people are or were hand loaders.
And no, I am not talking about any of my fellow GTR bozo's.



Except Jack.

That wasn't Tom Selleck, that was me... and send me back the hundred bucks I lent you so you could take your 'niece' to dinner.

Elmer Keith was a fine and imaginative loader indeed but it took me forever to teach him how to seat and crimp with one die.

(I think little Stevie is related to him. :whistling:)

If it wasn't for that worm, you would only have the second most impressive gun room.

No one is going to mention Skeeter?

Although a very knowledgeable mention since most of the newbs probably aren't aware of him, when I think of Skeeter I think of him more along the lines of a pioneer pistol shooter and old school lawman... similar to Bill Jordan.

When I think of Elmer however the first thing that comes to mind is loading, experimentation, improvement and innovation.

I think I would probably argue that he's the father of modern day pistol loading.

Might want to wash that off after a session with any of the Osbournes.
