This is a very special piece of brass. There will be no other like it for me ever

    This Hornady 6.5 creedmoor brass was deprimed, sonic cleaned and dried. It, along with 20 other once fired brass will be my first reloaded rounds. This round I picked special. It will be the first round I fully loaded. It will never be shot. I will find a way to display it with date load data and the fact it was the first round reloaded by me. You have only one first and this one will be mine and I shall keep it as a reminder to enjoy everything you do like it's your first.

    I have a collection of my first reloads of 12 ga, 30-06, .223 Rem, 9 MM and 45 ACP. With dates on each one.

    I never thought of saving any for historical purposes. Way too late now I guess.

    Just out of curiosity, how do we know that "this" steelfingers ISN'T his wife?

    Perhaps she is "creating" an alibi?

    (Seriously though, SF, good on you. Stay involved.)
