50 rounds of 30-06 using 150grn Nosler Partitions backed by 54grns of Big Game and Win primers. Also primed 200 pieces of .45acp brass and sorted out a bunch of SP .45acp brass from my LP brass. Annoying.

Thanks the same way I reload. I put the head stamped sorted cases in MTM's, then dump them 100 at a time into the case feeder
and place them back into the MTM

Fifteen rounds of 458SOCOM for testing. Hoping for good things to happen.

Hornady 300gr JHP
Starline Brass
Winchester WLP
Reloder-7 39.0gr - for a light load, that's a lot of powder in a short fat case!

Some 264Win mag to see how my new barrel shoots. Just some 140gr mild loads.

Had to reseat some 55gr Hornady SX 223 loads for the new barrel on my varmit rifle. It has a shorter throat than the old worn out one. If the shorter rounds work better then I have a bunch of time to spend reseating the 6,500 rounds I made up before getting it rebarreled.

I used Unique powder on both calibers. 9mm bullets are 115 gr. Extreme RN. 380 bullets are 100 gr. Extreme RNFP. All brass was Winchester once fired.

Put together my first 15 9mm rounds:


I used data in my Speer manual. Starting out with 4.1 grains of "Titegroup" with Wolf primers, Berry's 115 gr. round nose at an o.a.l. of 1.135. The small cylinder assembly for my RCBS Uniflow probably won't come in until September(I'm on a 4 month back-order) so thought I'd just see how consistent the large cylinder is. Works pretty well! I'm going to try 4.2-4.4 and then we'll see how consistent it is while making 100 rounds. The micrometer stem for the Uniflow is tempting.

Back from the range and all loads fired good. Cycled through just fine. Now I can start loading in bulk.

Next up will be 40 S&W when I locate some bullets.

300 45LC hand measured and weighed each charge. Tedious as hell but at least I know exactly what's in them and that there are NO squibs or doubles....and that makes it worth it for this newbie.

Decamped, sized and tumbled 1,000+ .357 Sig.

Then took on the task of removing a stuck .223 from my small base die. My wife reminded me that I had left it in the freezer for about three weeks...
