Your going to thing I'm crazy.

Possum hollow quick trimmer in a cordless drill. I have a blister on my trigger finger!

Knocked it all out though. I want to load all my crap up now so I have some shooting to do when it gets hotter up here.

The possum hollow is the ticket though man. I used the ball before. That's like trimming with your nails man.

The PH trimmer is actually the one I was looking at (better than spending $70 on the WFT right now for my budget haha). Hey man I'd MUCH rather use that with a drill rather than using the ball trimmer on each case by hand (never tried hooking the shell holder up to the drill...). After 100 cases I was ready to swear off reloading .223...I'm thinking the $40 for the trimmer and adapter is worth it hahaha. Is it easy to set for trim length?

In the last week:
-900rds 9x19, 124gr JHP MG, 4.2gr W231
-300rds 9x19, 147gr CMJ MG, 3.9gr W231
-300rds .223, 75gr Hornady match HPBT, 22.4gr H335
-500rds .223, 55gr FMJ MG, 24.6gr H335

I'm preparing for a 3-day match in a few weeks and it requires a high round count. I have a feeling I still need to load more

This past week-

-Deprimed and tumbled approx 4000 pieces .223
-formed approx 1000 pieces of .223 into 300 blackout

Today I plan on loading at least 500 rounds .223 and doing the final prep on the 1000 pieces of 300 blackout, just waiting for the aa1680 powder for the 300bo


Also in regards to case trimming, I know it's not cheap, but if you trim a lot of brass, the Geraud case trimmer is worth it's weight in gold. You can trim brass literally as fast as you can feed it in, easily 600-800 rounds an hour, and more likely 1000-1200 per hour.

Working through my latest brass acquisition ;

1100 .308
1000 .223
75 .30-06
200 .30-30

About 1/3 the .308 has been through the tumbler, so far. Doing batches of about 150 cases at a time. 3 or 4 hours in walnut and NuFinish is getting it clean and shiny.

Also started resizing and decapping 1000 TZZ .223 cases.

By the end of summer I should be able to load up about 3000 rounds of .223/5.56 (55 and 62 grain FMJ), put them on stripper clips and box them up in .30 cal ammo cans. I should also be able to load up about 1000 rounds or more of .308 with 150 grain FMJ.

Got one of the Dillons switched over to 38sp, yesterday. Loaded 24 rounds & took to the range to testfire. All good. Went to a Buddies house yesterday to help him set up his press & tweaked my shoulder, which I just got a cortisone shot in last week...

Who has a good right shoulder & wants to learn something about reloading??

Damn! Broke the decapper on my .223 FL sizing die (RCBS). Not just the pin, either. I got a case stuck and in getting it out the expander got messed up.

Hope Discount Shooters Supply has them in stock. I'm only about 1/2 way through that 1000 TZZ cases and I've got another 1000 after that.

Default Cut Back On The Powder

45 ACP Reloads Cost Qty Per Bullet Used

Primers $30.00 1000 1 $0.03 1
Powder 231 $30.00 7000 $0.02 4.8
Lead 200g SWC $44.00 500 $0.09 1
Total $0.14
Cost / 100 $13.86

Here's what I load at todays market prices 14 cents per round. Not too long ago the same loads were 9 cents each!

The cases last forever (if you don't max load) so I don't include the case cost.

45 acp

Primers $40 1000 = $.04 for 1
powder(unique) $25 7000gr = $.02 5.8gr
Bullet (plated) $116 1000 = $.11 for 1
total = $.17/round

100 rounds = $17

I am glad I broke it down after seeing the last reply. I was trying to support local business but am going to be ordering offline for now on.

45 ACP: 60 rounds 1.27COL 230gr LRN 5.5 grains of universal (which seems a bit soft to me..)

I would have loaded 120 but I broke a metal bracket on my reloading bench and have to repair that before I can continue.

Also, do you remember the days of cheap primers? I just finished my last box of 1990 Winchester LPP Primers, a box of 1000 for $11.37 *sigh*

Tested a new 9mm shell plate for a LNL AP, resized and decapped 100 cases, worked just fine. Got primers and powder, just need boolets!

After 1900 rounds of .223 over the last month I switched it up and loaded my first .44mag rounds. 12grs of Unique and a 180gr Rem JHP with Win LPP. I'll test my first 12 this weekend. .44mag is quickly becoming my favorite round to reload. Huge money savings!

Finished tumbling 1000 .223 cases. Chamfered primer pockets on about 500 TZZ 5.56 cases with another 400 or so to go. Resized about 200 6.8SPC cases and put them in the tumbler for a polish. I'll hand prime them when I get home from work and then reload them with 110gr Hornady HPBT and AA-2200.

Loaded 100 rounds of 6.8SPC with 110gr Hornady FMJBT/WC and 28.0 grains of AA-2200. I've got another 100 to load up tonight, then I'll get started on some 147/150 grain .308.

I'm taking tomorrow off to make it a 4 day weekend. The replacement body for my Possum Hollow trimmer arrived yesterday, so I'm going to try to get through as much of the .223/5.56 and .308 as I can. I've got over 2000 .223/5.56 cases to trim, about half of which are already decapped/sized. The other half are ready to size/deprime, then I've got 1100 .308 to size, deprime and trim, followed by a few hundred .30-30 and 100 or so .30-06.

My goal this weekend is to get as much as I can loaded, put on stripper clips where applicable and stored in ammo cans.

Finish charging and seating the 200 6.8SPC 110gr HPBT/WC, 28.0 of AA2200.

I'll crimp and box them in the morning.

Also got half of the TZZ 5.56 brass trimmed using my new Possum Hollow Quick Case Trimmer. I love it!

Nice racks are much better. You can grab both sides of the rack to help stabilize while mounting.

2 gallon paint/primer/spackle buckets work well, too.


Crimped the 200 6.8SPC rounds, boxed and labeled them.

Finished trimming and polishing the TZZ cases.

Sized, decapped and trimmer about 150 .30-06 cases. Just pulled them from the tumbler (corn cob). I love shiny brass!

Sized, decapped, and trimmed about 200 .308 cases. They're in the tumbler with corn cob now.

Today was trash day so I dumped my old corn cob and walnut media. Picked up #50 of walnut at the feed store for $12. Any reloaders in Sac that need a few pounds of walnut, PM me.

Decapped, resized, trimmed and polished about 500 .308 cases.

I've still got another 500 - 600 .308 and about 1000 .223/5.56 cases to go through, but I'm getting there.

Probably going to go chrono some .308, .223 and 5.56 rounds tommorrow up at the family property near Plymouth.
