Still loading 223. I'm running out of supplies. Maybe I'll be able to load some 40's by tomorrow.

1 in the front room watching TV and weighing powder
2 9mm
3 im loading 100gn frangable above max so I am weighing every charge with the chargemaster 1500
4 I like loading other calibers more than 9mm but thinking how cheap these frangible bullets were from midway a while back helps. box of 50 loaded rounds $5

I have been reloading 9mm for the last few weeks and have the 9mm stockpile is built up for a while. Tonight I am moveing on to 45acp. I just finished deprimeing about 2 gallons of brass, tomorrow or Thursday I will do the rest. Then probably get it all tumbled over the weekend.

Ordered my 223 conversion kit and deluxe quick change kit from Brian enos, so now I can reload 223 at night too.

Been working on my 9mm stockpile as well and must say I'm pretty proud of myself

3. Just processing brass (resize, trimming, primer pocket squaring, flash hold deburr)
4. 12am till 4am while listening to Coast to Coast AM and no I do not have my tinfoil hat on either

The down side to late night reloading, when you break something the stores aren't open to grab a replacement piece.

I ran a piece of brass with some dirt in it through the press and bent the zip spindle right above the expanding ball on my hornady dies.

Grabbed the RCBS die and back to decapping. About 2 gallons of 45 brass left to do tonight. I

load everything on a single stage, but I am seriously thinking of getting a Progressive with a case feeder, just to prep brass.

Wow, I only just checked back on this thread...sorry the reply is so dang late.
I load my .38s to about 1.51" oal, maybe 1.52". They run pretty good in the 92 if I use a rnfp like the Badman 157gr but I've had problems with tc (truncated cone) style bullets. They fit the revolvers just fine as they're actually .357 chambered Cimarrons.
This just in: My new USFA chambered for .38 only has no problems with the long rounds either.
