View Full Version : Pulled Another 'All Nighter' -For Fun- Last Night!

Happened to me again last night - told the wife, "Quite by
accident, honey!" ... but it was worth it!

Was sitting around here reading the instruction manual
for our RCBS progressive and figured that I could
probably knock out just the instillation in an hour or two
- which I did - and then go to bed. Of course, by then I
'just had' to run off a few 'test runs' - did the obligatory
adjustments and made the obligatory mistakes - finally,
got the little 'munitions factory' up and humming along at
the advertised 650/hr. rate of production and by the time
I had set up and made a .44 Mag. dies plate and run that
one, too, it was about 5:30AM.

... mumbling something about "being too old for this kind of
all night stuff anymore" I finally got to bed for an hour's worth
of shuteye.

Alarm went off at 6:30AM - fixed the wife's breakfast and got
her off to school - I'm such a good little house husband -
and now I'm waiting for the range to open at 10!

... and yes, it does out perform the Dillion - the primer strips
and swapable pre-adjusted dies plates make it a whole lot
faster!

I picked up three plates and am going back for about five more
tomorrow!

However, I think today I have a monumental clean up job scheduled
for our 'little bench!'

If I had the space to reload I would :p

Plus the only gun I have that I could reload for is the SKS.... and its pretty hard to find reload supplies.

Last night wasn't quite an all nighter for me, I managed to get to sleep at 3AM.

I'm really starting to hate Arabic.
