    A couple days ago I deprimed and swaged the 700+ pieces of 5.56 brass I got from an auction on Facebook. It’ll probably go in the wet tumbler tomorrow.

    I've mostly been tinkering in the loading room. It seems like sorting and tumbling brass is an ongoing project and thats mostly what I've been doing.

    I've been shooting 308 so much lately...practicing wind calls...hopefully it translates to my 300PRC when match season rolls around...but shooting 308 so much lately I had to set up the progressive press to reload it. Also, did 700+ rounds of 6.5cm for a friend.

    Got my 45 70 brass sized, necks chamfered and primed. Next step is some IMR4198 topped with a GT 390 gr. bullet and I can finally try out my 1884 Trapdoor.

    Earlier this week I sized and lubed about 1200 cast bullets. This morning I loaded 12 of them to try out in 2 different revolvers. The bullet was a H&G 258, a 220 grain Keith Type SWC for the 41 Magnum.

    Just trying to post occasionally and keep the site alive!

    I just finished a major clean-up in my storeroom. This is where I store my ammo, brass and cast bullets. It took the Wife and I parts of 4 days, working an hour or so at a time. The shelves kind of resemble the coffee isle at Krogers!

    Glad to hear that you were able to clean up. Every time I clean the reloading bench some gremlin comes in behind me and messes it back up. I have been doing some 30-06 and 10 mm and cleaning just a bunch of fired brass getting it prepped for reloading.

    I've been slowly sanding out the barrel channels on 2 rifles. One is a new build and the other is a rebarrel, going from an .835 muzzle to a .900. I work a while and rest for a while.

    This is the time of year that I start processing the brass that I scrounged or traded for so I have been sorting and tumbling brass. Probably will be for a week or so.

    Started cleaning some 300 WM brass, sizing, cleaning some 32 Win Special brass and 243 Win brass and putting away some 455 brass and 8 mm Nambu brass and bullets. I will start loading some 380 later.

    I started cleaning my brass in the warmer months because I now utilize the sun to dry my wet tumbled brass by laying it out on a bed sheet in the lawn. So in the winter I do other brass prep tasks like sizing and trimming bottle neck calibers or powder coating bullets.

    I lost a funnel. Spent the day cleaning up looking for it. Sadly I need to buy a new one. With the way they say, that's when I'll find the old one.

    At least you remembered what you lost. I have to clean my reloading area about every 6 weeks and it is amazing what I find, old objects new treasures. David

    I'm still sorting and tumbling brass. Probably will be all weekend. Its forecast to rain and its an inside job. Sometimes I think 9mm and 223 breed when left in a tub!

    I just finished sorting and tumbling last years accumulation of brass. I'll probably spend the afternoon storing it away. My storeroom looks like the Folgers coffee isle at the grocery store! And just put Happyguy's brass in the mail.

    I was able to do some more cleaning on the bench and loaded about 300 380 ACP. Put away the 8mm Nambu and 455 Webley brass. I had cleaned a bunch of 7mm Mag, 7.5x55 and 6.8 SPC which I also put into storage.
