Keep the keeper! Don't ever trade her in on a new(er) model...

Loaded up the rest (about 350... well all but the last 2 ea.) of my "found on sale" 100gr cast .356 in 9mm brass with 5gr of Unique. I seem to be happy with all weight of projectiles and 5 grains of Unique.

10 days and no pics is unacceptable.

Finished loading the lot of this, and pulled out some factory stuff to get a family photo.



20 ga duplex lead-free steel slugs, 20 ga remington copper solid lead-free sabot slugs, 3.5" hevi-shot lead-free 12 ga shotshells in #4 and #6, 2.75" 12ga lead-free steel shot in #8, 460 S&W rounds using barnes lead-free bullets. 200 grain XPB, 250 grain XPB, 275 grain XPB, and my favorite a 290 grain TMZ boat tail. All lead-free. some 38 special loaded to +p with solid copper projectiles, lead-free. 55+ rounds of 7x57 loaded with 140 grain banded solids (almost lead-free), a box of 7x57 with 140 grain TTSX lead-free bullets, and finally a box of 50 rounds (to go with my 22 round box) of 338 lapua rounds loaded with Nosler E-tip bullets, 3100 fps of 338 cal lead-free goodness. Not shown is the big-arse bag of sabots that came in so I can shoot those 45 cal barnes bullets in my 50 cal muzzleloader.

I'M READY TO SHOOT ME SOME CONDORS!

Well I told you guys I would take it slow and careful. I'm glad I did. All I did today was figure out how he primer system works on my lnl because it was locked up out of the box. I then proceeded to do a test run of 20 45acp carts to make sure everything was finally working ok. It was. 19/20 came out fine. The 20th one got an upside down primer lol. Anyone know WTHeck I do with it now? Just waiting for my bullets to arrive now!

Loaded up 100rds today

LC Brass
69gr SMK HPBT
23gr IMR 8208 XBR
CCI 400 primer
2.235 OAL

Should be pushing about 2800FPS, no chance to chrono yet. All I know is it shoots real pretty in my 20" stag AR and will be fun to shoot some steel at about 400yds.

Can't beat the fact I got these components pretty darn cheap, so they run me about .20 a shot

Nothing being loaded today but this thread is inspiring. With this long weekend, I'm hoping to load up both .41 Mag & .45 LC, both of which are running low.

I reloaded just over 400 100gr .380's for 9mm (Berry's plated, all they had locally).

The lady reloaded her 1st 100 of 9mm (of the mentioned above), and "SHE" ONLY "HAD TO PULL" like 25 due to semi-seated primers.

Didn't reload anything but I did throw my 1k .223 brass into the tumbler to remove the case lube from resizing. Brass has been resize, deprimed, trimmed as needed, tumbled and now ready to be swaged. Picture of brass before deprime.

got a super deal on some SWC 45acp 200 gr bullets (bulk). dont like SWC for my glock 30 but with a little experimenting I was able to seat them at 1.235 and they cycle perfectly. 1.250 and up dont work well as they rub against the guide channel. May do some guide polishing too but for now all is good.

Demilled 50 rounds of Greek 303 surplus. Reloaded w/ 14.8 gr of Trail Boss powder. Nice 175 gr jacketed lead bullets. They were stuck pretty well in the cases w/ a sealant. I used my new Forster Collet puller. RCBS doesn't make a collet for .311/312, so had to get another brand. Took me about 18 minutes to pull the 50. Kinetic pullers Blow!





Sprinkled the old powder on the lawn.

First reloads ever. Can't wait to go shoot them tomorrow!

40 rounds of .44 magnum, 240 grain Hornady cast bullets, Trail Boss powder. Working up loads to see what groups well and is light to shoot so I can quit buying .44 special for my girlfriend.



Little guy in the back left corner is getting pulled, not shot. Don't panic.

Last night I loaded up 99 (cannot find that last primer that dropped, but I am SURE the vacuum will eventually) M855 with 27 of Varget, and CCI #41's.

Time to break out the chrono again, and compare XM855 to my loads...
