Looking back, I can honestly say I’m surprised to be a full-time YouTuber and blogger here in late 2019. When I started my YouTube channel back in December of 2007, I had only one goal: to share things that were interesting to me. The following month, I uploaded my first reloading video, an overview of the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP press, my “new toy” at the time. Now, 12 years later I am working on Ultimate Reloader and related projects full-time.
This month, I achieved a goal I’ve been working towards for years- exceeding the 100,000 subscriber milestone on YouTube. WOW. This opens up some great new opportunities I’ll be pursuing in 2020, more details on that shortly!
A Big Thank You to My Audience
One thing is for sure: Ultimate Reloader wouldn’t be what it is with out you all: the audience. I’m very appreciative of the interest you all have shown, and all of the loyal fans that have followed me over the years. It’s been a TON of fun sharing stories with you all, and I absolutely love to correspond via comments and emails. THANK YOU!
A Big Thanks to The Industry
I also very much appreciate the support I’ve gotten from the shooting sports and related industries. The level of synergy I’ve built with the industry has grown steadily over the years. Now I’m working with these companies to help demonstrate products, evaluate new products, and to give input into new product designs. Initially I was focused solely on reloading equipment and processes. Now that has expanded significantly! It’s been a lot of fun to build rifles, test firearms, and bring field shooting stories to you all.
In 2020, look for more of the same kinds of stories- but even better! I’ll be doing more rifle builds, more pistol shooting, more reloading, and in-depth features on another level (an example is the progressive press shootout which will be published in 2020). If you have ideas and requests, please leave a comment!
