Trying out a new load. 6.8spc with 27.7 grains of H322. Nosler 115 BTHP
Can't wait, these are supposed to be more accurate than the 110 HPBT Hornadys.

I didn't finish anything yet but I got:

40 .30-06 polished and primed (had to use mag primers)
100 .45 polished
400 9mm brass in the mail ($20 plus shipping)

I've only got bullets and powder for the .30-06 but there's a good supply of pistol powder in my area.

Not really "reloads", but I casted 152 .454 round balls for my Remington 1858.

My first time casting anything, it went pretty well.

Loaded 150 rounds of .45acp

Sorted all my range pick up brass and tumbled ~1000 pieces of 9mm brass.

Thinking it might be time to order 380 dies to load practice ammo for my LCP with all the 380 brass I have lying around.

not all today but over the last few days I loaded up 600 124gn 9mm over power pistol and 500 rounds 45 acp over AA#5. Every charge weighed, single stage, took a while but worth it.

I spend most of my time inside on the couch weighing powder and then I go out to the garage and press total time over 3 days was probably 4 hours.

I want to get a progressive but I am thinking about instead of a powder measure just put a funnel and continue to measure each charge with the chargemaster.

I technically just made two dummy rounds tonight 9mm 124 gr. Gold Dot bullets on top of American Eagle brass. I don't have powder, calipers, or media for my tumbler but I just wanted to re-size & de-prime two cases just to see what it was like. Ended up taking out the other two dies to make a dummy round. I just took out one of my 147 gr. Winchester rounds and seated the bullet to around where it was at. I pulled the bullets when I was done & just ran the two pieces of brass back into the re-sizing die.

Loaded up another 140 rounds of 230gr lead 45acp to top off my supply (i hate taking time to switch calibers back and forth often) and then loaded up 200 rounds of 115gr plated 9mm, trying to build back up the stock pile since my GF has been burning through it like crazy since she bought her G26 back in January. Thank goodness I picked up a progressive press back in December, otherwise I wouldn't have the free time to keep up.

Getting ready to load my very first 10 rounds of 223. I seem to have primed one that I forgot to trim. Trying to work up the courage to decap it.

Does your bullet holder do anything else?

It looks like it is "upcycled/re-cycled" from a plastic clipboard.

I'd love details just because it looks DIY and awesome..

I meant to post this yesterday.







I made up a small batch of .223s to test these new Nosler silver tips. Upper left target was my fouling shots.

I fired 10 rounds total. Each 5 round target yielded .5moa or less. I have a winner. Pretty good for an AR15, eh?

Prepped 50 .308 cases the other night. Was surprised how much brass was still stuck in the WFT when I finished.



Also loaded 57 rounds of 30-30.
