    That sounds like a nice set up. My job for today is probably going to be keeping a fire going for Mama and Missy, my 14 year old rescue Cat. I may work on depriming that other 20mm ammo can of 9mm's. It took me 3 or so days to work through that other one.

    Samo samo, depriming brass, tumbling brass and sorting brass. I'm down to about a 20mm ammo can of 9mm's. I think those little suckers breed!

    Back to depriming and tumbling brass. I should finish with those 9mm's today. I'm finding some odd stuff mixed in with them, 32 autos, 9 X 18's, 38 S&W and a few 40's. Just like a box of chocolate!

    I received the missing parts and instructions for my RCBS APS hand priming tool in the mail yesterday, so I fooled around with it a little today. I took out the large primer seater using the little removal tool and then replaced it. Other than getting some of the strips I ready to try out this hand primer.

    I also looked over some range brass that I have in preparation for trading them.

    The pixel count is the likely problem.
    Back away from the subject and then zoom in on it.
    The picture will be a little grainy but you won't have to resize to get a lesser pixel count.

    Tumbled and sorted 4 batches of 9mm cases yesterday and will start again today after breakfast. 4 batches made a dent in a 20mm ammo can but I still have a few days to go! I'm still finding the stray 380 or 9 X 18 mixed in.

    From recent trades...today was .308 day. Lubed, sized, and then trimmed about 400 pieces of brass...then primed 200 of them and I've loaded 100 with some 175SMK's and 44.8gr of Varget seated to a depth my gun loves. I should have all of them done before going to bed. Tomorrow will be 45ACP day. I have about 500 pieces of 45ACP brass to process and load tomorrow.

    It is taking me a little longer today with the 308...due to the fact I'm mic'ing every step, every piece...weighing each charge....weighing each brass...weighing each bullet...This weekend I intend to have a nice sit down data session at the shooting bench. Hopefully come warm weather...I'll be ready to at least not embarrass myself at 1000+ yards.
