Just loaded my first 100 rounds of .40 SW 180gr, a few days ago. I also de capped and primed another 500 rounds of .40 last night after the game.
All of which was done on a Lee hand press and an RCBS hand priming tool.

UPS dropped off a few boxes today, looks like I will be pretty busy tomorrow



I'm going to be loading some of these Lapua 155gr Scenar "Silver Jacket" HPBT, which is just a fancy name for Moly coated. It's my first time using the moly bullets, so I am going to chronograph a few of my regular loads and work up from there. Here's the label:



and the pointy things inside:



I ended up getting 1000 cases, 2000 scenar bullets, and 340 loaded rounds, most of them 30-06 just so I could shoot them and use the cases.

Though I understand these were a special run of SST in o.311", I wish they had kept a closer eye on the cannelure location. A couple seem a bit off.

Other than that, these are fire-formed cases and loaded closely to 7n1 specs, maybe a bit slower, but less than a 2grn powder charge difference.

I also have more that are loaded in full-length resized cases.

Josh

Just more brass processing. I did about 2 gallons of 9mm resized, deprimed, then tumbled in stainless media today.

Over the last 2 days I finished processing all of the 9mm brass I have. All deprimed, resized, tumbled in stainless media, and sorted by headstamp. I took me quite a while but I now have just under 5 gallons of processed and sorted 9mm brass.

Last night I started on 45 doing the same thing.

This morning I actually loaded something rather than just processing brass.

250 rounds of 45ACP
Precision Delta 230gn FMJ, on top of AA#5, Federal primers, 1.270"

Also 100 rounds of .38 158gr HSM lead bullets over 3.5gr unique. Half for my LCR the other half for the GF to put through her Rossi 461.

Did it all on a single stage press, too. Had some time to burn. Lol.
