    Over the last couple days I’ve cutdown a few hundred for blackout, sized and tumbled all of that plus the other blackout I had.

    Went and did some shooting with my dad for Memorial Day, luckily the...

    The media and current politicians have done more to disrupt our way of life than any terrorist attacks have.

    I was hoping for the tumble lube TC version, but the RN was all he had in stock. I still need to clean it before I can use it.

    I sized and checked the 452-300 bullets I powder coated, they look...

    I scored a lee 356-124rn mold, .356 bullet sizing die, and 9mm 3 die set today at my local shop. Now I can start loading 9mm, since I just got a steal on a 9mm barrel for my M&P40.

    I think I’m...

    It was a 303 British. I’m not very proficient with WWII rifles, unfortunately, so I couldn’t tell you what the rifle was.

    The round went through some foam and the side of the rifle case before it...
  6. I haven’t done much at the loading bench lately...

    I haven’t done much at the loading bench lately other than loading up test loads for 223, WC844 powder under 62spbt, 62 steel core, and 75BTHP.

    I intended to try them out at the range the other...

    My shooting skill definitely isn’t capability of telling a difference between meticulously clean or just well washed, so I don’t bother.

    Maybe I can get some practice in this summer to where it...

    I don’t even use pins. I’m not really that worried about the primer pockets or insides of the cases, I just want the outside clean so my dies don’t get scratched.

    Sorted the brass from my last couple trip out unloading. Got some bonus blackout brass out of the deal too from a friend. Deprived everything last night. Tumbled the 223, blackout, and 6.8spc today....

    I unloaded a few hundred rounds over the last couple days, now I get to sort the brass from that.

    ordered 100 pounds of lead (50 Linotype and 50 pure), my mailman is going to hate me when that...

    Every one I’ve seen so far has already been sold... it goes quick

    I like wet tumbling because I can do a lot more at a time. But I don’t do it the same as most people do. I just use water and cleaning solution (frankford arsenal ultrasonic additive).

    My tumbler...

    If you email lee a picture of the cracked carrier they will probably send you a free replacement. Or you’ll have to pay shipping at most. It’s always good to have spares ;)

    I loaded up 400 rounds of 40s&w with some of the bullets I cast/coated. I have way more bullets than I do brass to load, which isn’t really a bad thing. I just need to shoot some more to empty up...

    I used the last of my lead making up some more 30 and 40 cal bullets. Powder coated and sized them all, now I just need to actually load them up.

    I’m off work until may, so I’ll have plenty of...

    I probably have 4 1lb powder cans full of spent primers. I’m planning on taking them and all of my scrap brass to the recycling place and basically trading it for lead/Linotype when I have enough to...

    I have the frankford arsenal hand decapper. It works well for doing the occasional case, but I don’t use it for large amounts of depriming, that’s where the new lee APP shines.

    Oh, holy crap... I forgot I wrote that..

    I was mainly getting at the election panic, but I think people are less worried about creepy uncle joe than they were in past election panics.

    It was pretty bad this time. I replumbed all of my hot water lines, so I had pex tools, parts, and hangers laying everywhere.

    Even after cleaning it, it’s not the best and would give some people...

    I’ve been picking up 10mm as trade fodder. I’ll get a count later, but how many would you like for your 450 bushmaster brass?

    I just got in my latest order of powder, primers, and bullets. Now I just need to clean off my loading bench as I’ve been doing other projects and it seems to become a catch all when that happens.

    I’ve heard that the reason the hornady feeders have trouble with cast bullets is due to bullet lube. So if you decide to powder coat, that SHOULD negate the issues with lube. I wouldn’t mind hearing...

    If you have this manual, does it have any data for 300aac subsonic? Specifically lighter weight subs? I’d like to work up something subsonic with the lee 312-160, with or without a gas check

    Ive been using HP-38, which I believe is identical to 231, in 40s&w and 45acp. It’s worked well for me. Lighter recoil, and a bit quieter. Plus I can use the same charge with the 401-175 in 40 that I...
