~270 .45 w/ 200gr plated and 7.5 grain AA#5, had to set up the LNL AP for the first time for this cartridge. Although it won't take nearly as long next time switching out calibers is no fun at all, and I thought a bit about buying lots more brass and building up a stash -- that's not even going to last me two trips to the range.

200 rounds .38spl, 75 rounds .38spl +p and 200 rounds .45auto. Going shooting Fri the 24th at Burro Cyn. Between work and WORKING on the house, man, I am ready to shoot! Next up, load up for the 30-30 for the Condor zone[D-8]. Hell, if I'm going D-8, may as well try something different. Haven't shot the old Mod 94 for a while.

I think that a "what did you buy for your bench lately?" is in order.

I know how that feels! I just sized and primed a lot of cases this week, all on a single stage press.
I need some rest before I can load 1k of 223's.

A box of .38 Special +P LSWCHP's. (as Uncle Jed would say, it's my "Sunday Go to Meetin" load) I use the single-stage press for these and inspect each one as I go.

Magnus #515 bullet, 4.5 grains of American Select powder, Federal SP primers, and whatever brass is handy that all has the same headstamp -- Federals this time.

Damn! Bench sighted my scope but couldn't even get on paper once I got to the range. Also, the Red Dot on my 16" carbine upper was out of whack, too. Blew through 150 rounds of XM193 and XM855 before I bagged it. Never got to test my hand loads. I'll try after work on Wednesday. Tuesday is handgun night and I've got plenty of 9MM and .45ACP handloads to try out this week, and no scopes to fail me.
