    I have tens of thousands of pcs of various brass that's sitting there, ready to reload. I just don't get as fanatical as some with regard to reloading it all.
    The house painter usully needs his house painted, and the cobblers children usually have the worst shoes. This NRA cartridge reloading instructor is wayyyyyyyyyyy behind in building ammo. (insert sad face here)

    Just finished sorting and depriming a tubb of brass that I picked up before deer season, and added some of it to my trades. Finally something besides 9mm, 40 S&W and 223, but there was some of that too!

    I removed the primers from some .32 ACP and 7.62X39 brass. Most of the 7.62X39 brass was "PMC" and the primers were crimped in place, so I'll have to remove the crimp from those cases. The rest of the brass was Remington ("R-P") and did not have crimped primers, so it was no problem removing the primers out of those. I used the Harvey hand deprimer with all of this brass.

    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 outside.

    Sitting in the loading room and looking out at the barren cold fields. Listening to some music on Utube and sorting some brass.

    Made up some bullets last night, got some powder coating done today. Just over 1000 bullets PC’d and ready to size and load, 645 of the lee 401-175 and 380 of the lee 452-230TC.

    I’m going to order some Eastwood jet black for the lee 309-230s that I have made up already.

    I also learned that silicone baking trays grow when they get hot, which somewhat threw me off.

    I tumbled the 7.62X39 and .32 ACP brass that I deprimed the other day. I just need to find the time to load all this brass that I'm prepping.
