Thanks for all the replies guys! I have not been able to do any reloading yet. When I started this post I was in about my 3rd week of a bad case of the shingles. As it turns out I am one of the "lucky" 15% of shingles sufferers that develops postherpetic neuralgia. Which is nerve damage where the rash was. The shingles are gone (I actually didn't have much blistering) but as the rash faded it was gradually replaced with excruciating pain. I am currently taking 1800 mg of gabapentin a day and using lidocane patches in order to even wear a shirt. And I can only use the patches for 12 hours a day. I have had a few bouts of gout in the past, and if you have had gout you know how excruciating that is. I would much rather have had another gout attack than this! That how bad it has been.
I could go on with all the things I have tried to deal with this pain, but long story shot, I am dealing with it and am really trying to get back to being more active. I was kidding with my wife the other day and asked her "I am only 53, why do I keep getting all these "old man" afflictions?" LOL
Anyway, I did get some DR16 wads from a member here who gave me a great deal on them (thanks Byron!). I also need to pick up a bag of shot before I can load any. I have been able to pick up some Federal 1 oz. #7.5 factory shells, so after I shoot them up I will also have some purple hulls to reload, too.
