    Bought some kind of super "Uni-chuck shim fit inserts for my kinetic bullet puller from Quinetics. Just had the shed sprayed to prevent any termites.

    I knocked out a few primers yesterday and, today, I ran some dirty range brass in the old Lyman Turbo 1200 vibratory tumbler to get the crud off. I haven't used that tumbler in a few years, but it did the job.

    I see Midsouth Shooter's is selling Franfort Arsenal rotary tumbler kits for $159.

    That is CHEAP!

    That is pretty cheap, comes with 5 lbs. of stainless steel media, too.

    Yesterday, I tumbled some more range brass in my vibratory tumbler to get the range grime off. Later in the afternoon I decided to reload some more 9mm rounds. In the process I realized that I only had 22 115 gr. full metal jacket bullets left. I couldn't find any Speer 115 gr. TMJs online, so thought I would go by Academy today and get some Hornady 115 grainers. Nope, they only had hollow points. I do have some 95 gr. 0.355" bullets I use for .380 Auto reloads, but I didn't want to reset my seater die to load those (it was getting too late). I may use them next weekend, if I get to do any reloading.

    Loaded up the last of my prepped 40 brass, got 610 rounds total. Changed the press over to 45acp and I’ll start loading up what brass I have prepped for that.

    It’s nice to have bullets to load when I want to

    Processing some new 300 Winchester brass that I got in a trade. I resize and trim all new rifle brass and I'll debur the flash holes and uniform the primer pockets.

    Sort through some 10mm and .300 AAC Blackout cases for prepping them for reloading. Cleaned the guns I shot yesterday.

    I did manage to find 2 boxes of Speer 115 gr. TMJs at a store in the city where I work. I bought them both, but didn't have a chance to load 'em up this weekend. I did sort my stash of ammo Saturday and today so I know exactly what I have on hand and how much.

    Picked up about 1,000 10mm bullets and 2,000 45 ACP bullets. I cast some 45 Colt GC bullets to try in the 450 Bushmaster after powder coating them.

    I didn't know you did 10mm. You like it? I must, I have 4 10mm Pistols, a Mechtech CCU to make one of my 1911's into a 10mm Carbine, and a TNW Aero 10mm carbine.

    I have 3, a Glock 40, a RIA high capacity 6 inch Target and an AR that takes Glock magazines. I order the 26 round Glock 45 ACP magazines, bend the feed lips and I now have 30 round 10mm magazines.

    What’s your setup on the 10mm AR? I’ve been debating a 10mm, 45acp, or 40s&w AR for a while.

    Been looking into the new frontier armory upper and lower sets.

    I went with Angstadt upper and lower. Any non impingment set up you go with count on chamfering the barrel so that you don't have feed issues, just chamfer don't remove a lot of metal. I was having feeding issues due to there are no feed ramps on blow back barrels. I made one out of Bandit Barrier material and the issues went away and I can use stock Glock mags without issues, no having to adjust 10mm mags to get the right feed angle to go straight into the chamber. A friend of mine is a great machinist, not how he makes his living, and he will use the feed ramp I have and cut me one from stainless. The Angtasdt lower has a milled spot just in front of the barrel which lets me anchor the feed ramp.

    I didn't feel well today, so I didn't go to work. I didn't do much, but I did remove the primers from about 70 pieces of LC .30-06 brass.

    I'm sorting brass today. I picked up a bunch of mixed brass at a gravel pit and it looks like I may have to fire the compressor up and blow out the pea gravel and cobwebs.

    I've picked up brass like that. I've picked up brass that looks like green steel laquered cases the corrosion was so bad. Sometimes I am still amazed what the wet rotary tumbler can clean up.

    10mm's I have a Dan Wesson Razorback 1911, a Fusion Firearms 10mm long slide 1911. an RIA Tac II 1911 with bushingless bull barrel, a Tanfaglio Witness full size steel, a TNW Aero 10mm Survival carbine, and a Mechtech CCU I use my Dan Wesson as a lower for to make a 2nd 10mm carbine.
