    I was hoping to make it to the range and test some loads before I go back to work, but it doesn’t look like that’ll be happening. I’m currently fighting off a cold, and the high tomorrow at the range...

    I haven’t done anything loading related the last few days. Just got home from picking my son up from Parris Island after he graduated boot camp. We’ll probably go to the range at least once while...

    USPS won’t allow primed brass, but UPS does without additional hazmat fees as long as it’s marked ORM-D. I’m not sure about fedex though.

    My local shop had a 50cal ammo can full on M&P40 magazines for $12, so I bought a handful of them the other day. Eventually I’ll get around to building a 40s&w upper for my SBR and pick a stern...

    I only have experience with lee 2 cavity molds so far, but they seem to work well enough for me.

    I just used parchment paper. Much less fuss, and I can still get a couple uses out of it.

    I made it to the range today to put some rounds through my pistol suppressor. It’s an all around improvement over unsuppressed, but not nearly silent. Brass seems to just pile up at my feet now as...

    I finally picked up the rest of the stuff I should need for powder coating, so Iíll probably give that a try sometime today. Hopefully it doesnít go too poorly.

    I tried out a test set of subsonic...

    Something will come up somewhere. Just have to be patient.

    I decided to try to tumble lube 50 each of the bullets I casted up, which turned out to be well over 300 of each over a few days. If the tumble lube goes well I might just stick with that as it’s...

    It’s good that you seem to have a positive attitude toward it. I’ve heard that helps a lot, believe it or not. Hoping for a speedy trip through this and back into remission.

    Side note, have you...

    I finally decided to try casting, made up about 50 each 40 175gr TC, 45 230gr TC, and 308 230gr.

    Once I got the hang of it they went pretty quickly. I still have yet to get the stuff I need to...

    I really like the APS strips, so I might look into the APS bench priming tool, but it doesn’t have the universal shellholder that the hand tool does.

    I hand primed 1000 pieces of 40s&w brass the other day. My hand is still sore from that...

    I got tired of fighting the case feeder on my loadmaster (I had it running smooth for about 20 minutes) so I decided to modify it so that it’s somewhat manual.

    I put in a small stop to keep the...

    My experience with 458 socom was only with jacketed bullets, but I couldn’t get the powder through expander to open the mouths enough to seat properly and still pass a chamber gauge. I had to use a...

    I plan on doing the same thing when I have enough to make it worth the trip. Right now I have 3 1lb coffee cans full of spent primers and a bunch of the neck cutoffs from making 300aac, along with a...

    I’ll probably eventually break down and buy 5k online. Just have to get some money saved up first.

    I’m guessing you go to west chester, I usually go to the one on Wilmington pike unless the wife drags me to ikea.

    I hand prime everything anymore since I switched to an APS tool.

    Every time I go to my local cabelas they’re completely out of CCI SR primers (400?)
