Default What did you reload today?

I did 200 .45 ACP. Cost me about $50.
My formula was off for the powder cost... was actually more like $37

1200 rounds of .223 and I am currently putting them on stripper clips. Talk about tedious. Just as bad as swaging.

$180 for the 1200 rounds. Maybe I should just start shooting 5.45.

Check ebay. Lots of surplus stripper clips most of the time.

Cheaper than dirt is cheaper but I know everyone here hates them. Buy other things to lessen the shipping pain.

I loaded-up some 9mm, and played with some small primer 45 ACP. The primer pockets on these are cut too shallow. The primers stick out .010".

I haven't had that problem with mine. I think some of mine need to be swaged, but the ones with un-crimped pockets worked great.

What do you shoot your 200gr swc's out of? I loaded some for my 1991a1 colt and am wondering if the 1.161 OAL that Lyman gives will cycle ok.
They seem short. First time reloading 45 acp.

Too lazy this morning to start up the Dillon 1050, but am loading up a bunch of 45 ACP right now. I got a couple thousand cast, but unsized or lubed bullets for $0.13 a pound some years back and am finally getting around to loading them up.

1000 rounds of .223. Cost me $175.

I've gotten faster with my 650 w/o trying. I can do about 100 rounds in 15-20 mins.

Yes, CCI. When I piced up the brass, I noticed the primer had backed out. I didn't think anything of it until I cleaned them and reprimed.

Strange. I haven't noticed anything like that. I didn't load them very hot though. I forgot what I loaded them with. I think 4.5gr of WST, under 230gr RN, I can look it up later.

I like the SPP 45's. I will be solely using them from now on. It's nice not having to change around the primer assembly on the press.

Didn't actually reload, but decapped somewhere around 2-3,000 rounds of .223 brass this weekend. On a single stage RCBS.

500 rds of 201gr LSWC for the Area II match next week in Az.

200 rds of the same as above but bullet weight varies from 200gr to 202-3gr for the Richmond Hotshots match this sunday.

200 rds of the same as sundays ammo to practice with tomorrow, but with misc primers and, THANK GOODNESS, the last of the Wolf primers i found laying around. The Wolfs are finally used up!!

Think i'll go load a couple hundred more for tomorrow, just in case i get trigger happy

100 rounds of .45 Colt "Magnum" loads. According to the chrono, these rounds are pushing a 250gr cast "boolit" at an average of 1,250 fps. Nighty-night, Bambi!

@Timbob55: congrats on your first handloads! If you're shooting .480 Ruger, then you really do need to handload. Welcome to the hobby! BTW, casting those big .475" slugs yourself will also save you a lot of dough, and it's not at all hard to do.

EDIT: Hey...this is post #308! Must be a good omen for the day! :-)

Loaded 400 rounds of .223 remington 62 grain FMJBTSC to add to my existing SHTF stash 2 days ago. I was going to load 100 rounds of 12 gauge "0" buckshot but sadly I did not have anymore buckshot. Damn! Time to cast some more tomorrow.

yea but to consistently hit that 12" steel target at 600 yards to a point where it becomes boring....

I'm like you, load 40-100 round of precision ammo is better than 1k a day
