j.Monty,
Reading signs of high pressure is more than just judging by recoil and accuracy, especially with the rifle cartridges. Even a basic chronograph will be very helpful for working up loads using your specific components. I'd only load near the recommended starting loads if I didn't have one. I usually do that anyway.

I usually load in large batches of only 1 caliber, but today I was trying to get some loads done with recipes given to me by a friend. So today was a little out of the ordinary for me

150, 357 mag with AA5
100, 45 ACP with power pistol
100, 380 ACP with Trail boss

Turned out 150 rounds of 9mm on my LCT in an hour. After doing some testing at the range today, I think I finally settled in on a good recipe for my M&P.

Barry's 124 grain round nose
4.4 grains Winchester W231
1.13 C.O.L.

My .45acp Critter-Gitter load, 51 rounds:







... and cleaned the 1911 yesterday, detail strip.

The load is a nominal 5.2 grains of W231 under a my soft-cast (almost pure lead, with just enough tin to let it flow but not frost at high heat) flat nose, truncated cone 230 grain nominal, 235 to 240 grain actual (due to the alloy used).

Be aware that this MAX according to the Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook but pressure is listed as about 3kpsi under standard .45acp. Start low at about 4.2 grains and work up to 5.2 MAX.

This load is the longest I could take it with this bullet and still have it function in the magazines. This usually means 1.275COL for round nose but, in this case using truncated cone, it maxed out at an even 1.25COL.

Lube was homemade. Don't remember the particular blend I had on these boolits. Something like beeswax, LLA, lanolin and Militec-1. May have some paraffin in there. Something fancy that I'll not be doing again. Next will be beeswax/Crisco/lanolin or something simple like that!

Josh

That looks like the Lee 230 gr truncated bullet. What a good six cavity mold to have when you have close to a ton of scrap lead in 5 gallon buckets laying around!

That'd be the one! Except I prefer the two-cavity. I usually only load 50 at a time and smaller quantities of loaded ammo as well as smaller quantities of cast bullets allow me to produce a superior and more consistent round.

That said, I've thought about getting a progressive or auto-indexing turret just to load pistol ammo for plinking.

The rifle ammo is what I really prefer to handcraft.

Loaded 50 rounds of .270 winchester, 150gr Hornady SST over 54gr of IMR 4831, 3.280 COAL with a CCI #200 primer. My 100ATR loves that load. Was the last of my bullets though so I need to get to Bruno's over in North Phoenix to pick up some more.

Also loaded 3 10 round groups of test loads for 115gr plated bullets to shoot through my Beretta, all using bullseye powder.

Finished up 300 rounds of 9mm ( 124gr FMJRN, 5.5gr Unique ).
I originally bought my Hornandy L-N-L from another member here and "just" got around installing the 9mm die set. Appears the previous owner had setup the 9mm dies perfectly as I only had to reconfigure the powder dispenser from rifle to pistol.

First 100 took about 40 minutes, but after that, 20 min. per 100! I was basically doing 300 rounds an hour. I had two casings that were crimped that I didn't catch; nothing popped but I had two deformed primers stuck so my total was actually 298 rounds.

I'm now thinking of getting the add on auto casing dispenser now. Having to concentrate on feeding a bullet and the casing seemed like a chore. Hoping the casing dispenser will speed things up slightly but mostly, so I can focus on just placing the bullet on the casing.

The thing that "feels" it takes the longest is filling up the priming tube!

100rds of 32ACP. These are factory loads which I didn't like how they performed so I spend the day un-loading them (bullet pulling). I'll re-reload them later this week for next Sunday @Chabot.

BTW, the factory ammo was American Ammunition Company, A-MERC. Half the box was out of spec and wouldn't feed - the case got stuck in the chamber.

Hahah, thanks.

I think i'm running on the side of overkill when I am loading 9mm. After rounds are pressed out, I'll check every 4th with calipers. Then I'll put every single round through a Wilson gage. Finally, I mark each extractor band with a Sharpie to differentiate different recipes and make my brass easier to spot on the range.

I hope I can figure out a better tool for marking the extractor band though. My ghetto cardboard/tape/Sharpie contraption works, but it's not elegant and I think it could go faster. It's a piece of thick cardboard that I pulled from a Cabelas shipping box. Poked a hole in the cardboard and taped a marker next to the hole. The round gets pushed in until the extractor band lines up with the marker and then I spin the bullet by the tip on the "underside" of the cardboard.

Hmm...

That should have said,

Last week I loaded 1,000 .40 Montana Gold 165gn JHP with 7.0gn Unique and Winchester SPP loaded in mixed brass and 1,000 9mm Rem 124gn JHP with 5.5gn of Unique and Winchester SPP in Rem Nickle plated brass the week before.

All this on my 550B. The El Cheapo bullet feeder is doing great!

It seams like I haven't actually loaded in weeks (more like a week) but have just been processing brass. lots and lots of brass. I deprimed and resized about 2 gallons of 45 tonight giving me about 4 gallons that I need to run through stainless. I almost want to get a progressive with a case feeder just to process brass.

I saw that and was kinda confused or if you really did just reload 1 cartridge of something.

Loaded 100 rounds of 9mm for my range trip this weekend. I need a progressive setup, I'm tired of loading handgun ammunition on a single stage press.

Loaded 50 rounds each of 308 & 303 with my new ATF powder!
I ordered it through USI in Concord. It took a month, but I got 5 lbs for $98 & change.
