All very good - and versatile - powders, I like and use them all in a variety of rifle and pistol cartridges.

I've used Titegroup in several handgun rounds, 38 spec., 45 Colt, and 41 Mag, lighter loads. I'll probably be trying it in light 44 mag loads and in 9mm but I haven't go around to it yet. I'd would offer to buy some and meet you to pick it up but I'm guessing I have more than I'll ever use unless I get to increase my shooting time.

I decided I'm gonna sell the 8 lb. jugs of Titegroup and Benchmark (1 jug of each). I'll not live anywhere long enough to shoot up that much powder! So I'm gonna list them in the River Bend Gun Club newsletter.

The rest of the powder I'll keep.

You"ll live long enough if you shoot a lot more!

I retire in 158 days. I just finished up reloading the last of my empty 357 brass. I am just shy of 10,000 rounds of those little guys ready to go bang. This summer I plan to litter up Greta's countryside with lead every chance that I get and then some. You should too!

I know... I know. I went to the range more when I was working! But the wife and I average 2 doctor's appointments a week and I've gotten used to not leaving Kathie when we're home. Heck, I don't even feel right about going to my basement; also known as my wood/gun shop.

But hey! I'm keeping 4 pounds of Titegroup so I'm optimistic!

Atta Boy! What's that saying about "I'm not as good as I once was but I'm as good once as I ever was"? Well I'm even beyond that. I remember when I could load 100 rounds per hour easy on my Rock Chucker. Well, the other night I loaded 100 rounds while listening to oldies. My feed hand and my lever running hand got out of sync twice and I pinched a finger both times......I think I spent as much time picking up dropped brass as I did reloading. The old man thing has turned most hour projects into 2 hour projects.

Then there is that thing about getting up 4 times in the night to have to pee......ain't the golden years wonderful?
