I have a bunch of rag tag reloading equip that I pieced together or was given over the past year or so. I currently have an old RCBS Partner Press.

I have not owned a scale or powder dispenser because I was loading cowboy type loads (.45-70 and .38spl that were nowhere near max charge) and I was using powder scoops to accomplish that. That works well for pinking ammo.

However, with the .223 and the cost of match ammo, I decided to start getting more precise on the reloading front, so now I can make match quality ammo for the guns that demand it. I likely will never reload in large volumes because it's not worth my time to load plinking ammo in stuff that isnt high dollar to begin with. The .45-70 loads i make save me about $1.25 per shot when doing reduced power loads (405gr cast boolits at about 1100FPS) and about $.75 per shot when doing full power loads (300gr jacketed at about 1900FPS), so that's definitely worth it.

anyway, Im excited now that I have some quality tools to do the job. just gotta decap, swage, resize, teim, chamfer and deburr about another 1000 5.56 cases and then I can get around to actually reloading them and working up some good loads. oh joy.

You only get a refund if you over pay your taxes. Until you file your return the government gets to keep your money as an interest free loan.

Got it, just didn't realize what he was saying.

My return isn't normally as much based on my income but it goes up a few hundred based on my student loan interest payments and whatnot.

Is there a way to set up so you only pay what you actually or is it just you prefer to owe come tax season.

Sorry I guess I shoulda used a few more words there. You can adjust how much is withheld based on your best guess, tax bracket and income. Ideally I end up paying ~$5. Never got that close though, I've usually ended up with a small refund

If your income is very predictable and your deductions are very predictable you can get close. Otherwise the smart thing to do is to aim to actually owe a little bit. That way the government is giving you the free loan.

Ah. Well my income is pretty unpredictable. I made several thousand more this year without actually getting a pay increase

I overpaid big time last year... To the tune of over $2500. I have never had that big of a refund before. I was paying extra on my 1040-ES every quarter due to the social security tax increases last year.

Try bringing a full time college student earning almost $40k a year for 10 years straight! It's a nice boost to my Jeep fund every February. Oh and one of the perks of my job is I haven't paid to go to school for 5 of the years (thanks to grants and scholarships)! Keep slaving away suckers! Haha

Oh, and unlike Marn I truly will be a Dr. in 6 months! Haha

And, I'm just messing about calling you all suckers. What I do definitely isn't for everyone, and I'm glad. Only .9% of the US population has a PhD.

And, believe me there are other jobs I would love to have, just lack the skill set required. But, hey I get approximately 4 months off a year, so I cannot complain! Haha
