Title: do you guys know
Post by: Morax on July 25, 2007, 10:46:48 AM
someone who is getting into the art,hobby,fetish, what ever you call it of reloading, and has gotten bad information from someone and refuses to back away from it, almost like it is Gods word??  i have a friend who just had to buy that .500 s&w and someone stuck it into his head since it is a big caliber pistol it needs reloaded with the biggest heaviest nastiest reloader on the market.. I sat with him and showed him a lowly single stage that opens far enough to accept the cart. would do the job. and he refuses to accept it.. so what do you do beat your head against the wall, ignore him when he asks you for help on it, or sharp stick poke him even though he dont know he is being poked?  i almost had him back to reality, then he talked to someone else and they dont have a clue on reloading, so it went back to the same.. i guess cause it has a 5 and a 0 in it he things its a BMG and he needs a big press i donno.. your thoughts?

I would advise him to buy the biggest,baddest,latest,greatest,highest quality,most expensive, with all the bells and whistles. After all, it's not your money  :idiot2

How about you have the guy buy the dies and show him that they will work on your press. Once he sees it for himself, he's only got himself to blame for spending too much. ???
