Thread: Reloading - cathartic?

  1. #1

    Red face Reloading - cathartic?

    Anyone else find reloading a calming and cathartic activity?

    I got dragged into work this afternoon to fix a server and when I got home I was pretty wound up.

    150 rounds of .44mag later and all is well with the world!

    I was hoping my thread wouldn't be de-railed on the first reply - all mention of enjoying a sensible drink now removed.

    Cathartic, yes or no?

    Sorry Alex!.............. nothing more cathartic than laughter!

    Hi Alex,
    Now you know why I have to make use of a range so often otherwise my Shed/Garage/Lean-to and any other spare nook and cranny would be full of ammo
    Not that I have so many situations whereby I need to 'chill out' and thus build my stock pile of ammo

    Well the fact I did quite openly hopefully suggests that I apply common sense whilst doing so, but you were right, I should have kept schtum. Sometimes the eye gets drawn to the wrong part of a post and off we go on a tangent!

    Incidentally... in case anyone zooms in on the picture, the little bag of white powder is polishing compound for my tumbler, not class A drugs.

    Hi Eddy,

    I've been meaning to call you to catch up. Phone call incoming!

    I don't feel that reloading is particularly relaxing. More like a technical exercise. Now on the other hand, I find bullet casting pretty relaxing, and I find reforming cartridges very satisfying.

    Real relaxation comes when I shoot. Makes me very calm.~Muir

    Must be something wrong with me, I like shooting them best
