CV done good!

I came home today... In the dark, and nearly tripped on a huge box that UPS left by the gate. I hooked my finger in the plastic and dragged it on the porch, went inside and forgot about it.
She came home 20 minutes later and comes in the house fuming mad..."Well now you know what your Christmas present is". Turns out it's a complete Hornady "Lock and Load" set with brass tumbler. WooHoo, Back into reloading... After dies, powder, primers, bullets....
And... honestly I never even looked at the box. She let the cat out of the bag.

Great gift!
Just think of all the money you'll save handloading! HAHA!

The yearly cycle for northern climes:
spring and fall - smelt and cast during cool weather
winter - handload like a madman
spring/summer/fall - enjoy shooting it up

Nope. she has her .308 Garand now. 30-06 won't work in a FAL so she gets to learn to load it.
