    For about two years my favorite Viking has “mentioned” several times that I spend too much time with all the stages of re-loading. I always explained that my free, Rock Chucker II did a fine job and helped keep the cost per round down.
    Lately her “mentioning” has escalated to unpleasant(and nearly incessant)cajoling that I needed to buy a progressive press(my shooting buddy told her that such things existed).
    Last month she gave me the ultimatum - buy one or else. She never explained what punishment she had in mind so I told her it would be over $1K; $1K I didn’t want to spend. She insisted and over a period of a couple weeks I caved. I ordered an XL 650 with some accesories and some parts from Dan at ILF.
    I can’t believe she won that argument.

    That is outrageous! You should go tell her you are the man! And... Wait, she wanted you to spend money on gun stuff. You married way up! :)

    She has already spent 3X that on something she will later reveal.

    Of the wife or the new Dillon...hell why not both?!

    I betcha its this poor bastards only free time...reloading. He gets away from the nagging and spends 3 hours in the garage. Not anymore. He will now be watching Dancing with the Stars and Golden Girls reruns nightly.
