    My new is a Walther PPS M2 LE. And oh yeah, I just got me a new 10mm carbine. Tried to upload pictures but that doesn't seem to be working tonight.

    I sized a whole 20 .30-06 cases. That's right, 20...

    I sized 55 more .30-06 cases this evening.

    gandog56, these cases will hopefully find themselves nestled in M1 clips in the near future.

    I primed the 75 cases that I recently resized.

    Cleaning the brass I got with a trade from Jander9 in the wet rotary tumbler. I'll be sizing, trimming, and chamfering all the rifle cases today.

    I really need to spend a lot of time on the bench... so much brass to prep, so much ammo to load...

    I chamfered and deburred the case mouths on those .30-06 cases. Hopefully I can reload them tomorrow or Monday. I also picked up some 155 gr. Hornady A-max bullets from Academy Sports to try in both an M1 and a .300 BO MSR.

    I finally did complete loading those .30-06 cases (which I got in a trade on this very forum). I loaded 64 with Varget and 168 gr. Hornady A-max bullets, and 11 cases with 155 gr. Hornady A-max bullets. I want to load some more of the 155 grain bullets, but I need to prep more cases. Once again, I used my recently acquired PACT digital scale and dispenser. Once I started loading, I checked three powder charges with my beam scale and they agreed. After they were all loaded I didn't have enough room in my MTM R-60 case to hold them all. So I went by Academy Sports today and picked up a Plano 1230-50. I really didn't want the Plano box because it is made in China, but the only other place in town that might have the MTM case was out of the way and there was no guarantee that they would have an R-60, though they do carry MTM products. I do like that the Plano case has a real hinge, not a live one like is on the MTM case and which will fail at some point in time. But the squares within that hold each round are large, bigger than in the MTM R-60, though they are supposed to fit the same rounds. The rounds rattle around and are not conducive to being stored point down.

    Sorted all my 10mm, .49 cal, and 357 SIG cases I just got done cleaning and sizing by brand and bagged them up. Ordered me a new Lee Load-All 12 gauge reloader set from eBay. Guess I will be needing some Shotgun Primers, wads, and hulls. I have a couple bags of bird shot.

    Just got done ordering a whole mess of shotshell reloading stuff, Hulls, wads, primers, boxes, everything but the shot, because I already have like 50 pounds of like #8. 50 pounds of shot I haven't touched in like 20 frigging years. Got 2 pounds of Hodgdon Clays, was going to try that instead of the Red Dot I used to use. See if it's any cleaner burning.

    I picked up a variety of 9mm and 45 Bayou coated bullets and I have worked up the loads for them. I just need to get to the range with my crony.

    Not much at the bench lately. Been slowly sorting 20 buckets of wheelweights, close to 2800#. I'm about 2/3 of the way through. Trying to do a bucket everytime I sit down. Thats about as long as the old back can take it. These are from a fellow casters stash and I'm finding very few non lead weights. I have found a few like I''ve never seen though. Plan to go back after more, probably next month.

    Finally got some time in at the bench, sized and trimmed about 150 300aac, 30 308win, 350 223/5.56. I'm going to try my luck wet tumbling them all together without pins, see how much mating I have between the 22 and 30 cal cases. Shouldn't be too bad without media.

    Got in a whole pile of shotshell primers, wads, hulls, new ammo boxes for 12 guage. Trying to get what I need to mount it on my Lee Bench Plate System so I only have one press on my bench at a time.

    Love my Lee bench plate, helps keep stuff neat and organized. And if you believe I'm really organized theres this bridge ....
