    My problem with that is I rarely take only a few guns to the range. I usually take LOTS of guns of various calibers. So big army boxes stuffed with all the different calibers I take would be a little prohibitive. I usually take only maybe 100 rounds each.

    Oh golly, I'd go through 100 rounds in 3 minutes

    That's the thing though, 3 minutes 20 guns. Plus the time waiting for range stops so I can post new targets, then waiting for the range to go live again, plus the hour drive to get to my range, and the hour drive back, then as soon as I get home, clean the guns, sort the spent brass, and start processing it. Makes for a pretty full day.

    I am obviously blessed. My range is only 20 minutes from my home, and is a private range. There's no "stopping and starting" to deal with. When you are on the range, the range (shooting bays) is mine! I can draw from holster, engage as many threat targets as I want. And, if I can legally own it, I can shoot it at the range.

    Yeah, my range is good for anything BUT tracer/incendiary and .50 BMG. Plus they have a 1000 yard range. Full auto? No problem. Tannerite?...OK if you follow a few simple rules such as warning the other shooters there will be a big boom.

    Went to a gun show today. I pretty much only looked at one gun, a Remington 1911 10mm, but while I was there I got a 1 lb. jug each of Hodgdon Varget and Hodgdon H110. Then I bought a bag of 240 .40 cal. 160 grain SP's. When I got home, 4 new Ruger 10 round .22 LR magazines for my Mark IV came in, so I tried out my new little handy tool to load the magazines up. Little sucker worked great, and it will ALSO fits my Browning Buckmaster magazines.

    Started processing a second batch of 1000 223's. About 1/3 was through trimming them. Had to stop and rest the ole fingers! Since I retired my hands have gotten a little softer! Hopefully I'll finish trimming them today and possibly tumble them.

    Deprimed all of my 458 socom and 45acp brass the other day, just need to get them in the tumbler.

    Picked up a bond arms 38/357mag derringer that also came with a 22lr barrel and 50 rounds each of 38 and 357 mag. So now I’m going to have to get the stuff to load up 38spl at least, I doubt I’ll shoot much full power 357mag from it.

    Still swapping out all my cardboard boxes for plastic ones. Finished up my 10mm today, still had one cardboard box of reloads left but no more plastic cases. I almost guessed right on the amount of plastic cases I needed for the 10mm. Tomorrow I get to stack all the newly loaded cases up by date on my ammo shelves. I think maybe Monday I may finally get my butt to the range weather permitting. Have to shoot that Ruger 10mm revolver I bought for the first time. As a matter of fact, I think it will bee 10mm day. Going to take ALL my 10mm's. That will be a LOT of 10mm cases to process when I get back. That would be:
    Dan Wesson Razorback 1911
    Rock Island 1911
    Fusion Firearms Hunter long slide 1911
    Mechtech CCU
    TNW Aero Survival Rifle
    Tanfoglio Full Steel Witness
    Ruger Super Redhawk 10mm

    Was thinking I will take my Swedish Mauser and both my Lee Enfields, too.

    Did go to the range. But it was really hot and muggy, so while I took all my 10mm's, I only took my Swedish Mauser 6.5mm. Started processing all the 10mm brass from my range trip.
