    While loading to fireform some 220 Russian brass to 6PPC I loaded with powder and it was almost to the top of the neck, it shot really well and fireformed perfectly. Then I go to reload the fireformed brass and it's not even at the bottom of the neck and I'm looking like what the heck!!
    Then I realized ............. it is now fireformed and the neck is longer and the shoulder has blown forward so it did exactly what it was supposed to do! HA!!
    So go ahead and tell me, what have you done like this? Time for a laugh now that the matches are getting cancelled!

    Working some where I have to park way off from the actual work, need a tool or screw or nail, walk to truck and can't remember what I walked out there for.

    And that is only going to get worst as you get older. There is one simple test for Alzheimer's. If you loose your car keys and can find them in two hours you are fine. But, if you find them in the fridge you are in trouble.

    Grabbed 80gr .223 bullet, could not figure out why the neck on my 6br brass would hold the bullet. DOH!

    Not shooting related:
    Was on a break between dives; went from the boat to the truck for the break. Clipped my truck keys to my camera strobe arms so I didn't lose them. Had a bite to eat, went back to the boat, got to the next dive site and hopped in. 85 feet down, went to frame a picture, and there were my truck keys, still hanging off the camera. Didn't do wonders for the fob. Set the panic alarm off as I neared the truck, and had to key my way in to get it to stop.

    My favorite is when I marvel at how smoothly the bullets are seating and only then I realize I had no bushing in my sizing die. Too many seconds of amazement go by before I realize what I did.

    Squeezing the hand primer harder when priming military brass that I obviously did not remove the crimp from entirely. BANG!!!

    Set up a electric trim pro. Was measuring and double checking gonna get it just right. Pulled out the dummy case, put in a case to trim, and watched it take off and chew off 1/2 the neck. I then realized I had forgot to lock the sliding base down when I get it set up.

    When the safe is almost full, but would not fit in another rifle until you removed the bolt, then take it out a week later and after arriving at the shooting range with the rifle and you remembered that the bolt is still in the damn safe.

    Set a piece of brass ON TOP of the shell holder to full length size.
    I removed the TV from the reloading room immediately after.
