    Thunder valley is about the closest for me also at around 3.5 hours. Hopefully next year I’ll make it out there and stretch the 308 out a bit more.

    I was going to look on cast boolets, but there is way too much to sort through there.

    B2lee, I was just in your neck of the woods a bit over a week ago. If I’d had more time I would’ve looked you up, but I was just there to meet up to get a couple foster puppies and turn around and...

    I’m off for the next 7 days, and the wife is working the holidays, so I’m hoping to get some of this lead turned into bullets so I’ll have something to load when it gets too cold to spend any time...

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