200 40 S&W, 200 38 Special and 100 45 ACP yesterday. But that was only half of what I shot this week. The good thing is I never have to change the setting on the powder measure. 5.0 grains of Unique and I'm good to go!

740 grain NEI 458-630. Because 500 S&W should not have the record for the heaviest bullet available in a factory mold.

We hold that record now.

...I'm not sure the 740 has enough meplat.

I feel you on the single stage, I have never known anything but a single stage. 500 rounds can take a while but I still like my single stage.

What 200gn bullet are you using? I am still trying to find a 200gn I like.

i use Rainer copper plated. got them at cabellas for like 60-70$ per 500 so i figured it try them.i notice i have to flare a little more with them compared for my other loads. but the 200g rainer over 5g bullseye shots really soft and i never had one single problem cycling the weapon.

over the weekend i did 50rds of 6.5x52 carcano with a 129gr SP and also 50rds of 7.35 carcano running a 128gr. sure it doesn't sound like a lot but i do all this in a cramped closet while being harassed by my 4yr-old twins and measuring every charge. i first fill all the cases with powder and just stick an upside-down bullet in each so i can get all the powder dropped and shut off the lyman so i can do seating without upsetting it. anyone who own a digital powder meaure/scale knows what i'm talking about. they're twitchy.

Sizing .308 Winchester last night.. 1st stuck case on 10 years of metallic reloading...

Now I know why I should've had one of those stuck case tools on hand, after years of wondering "who gets cases stuck."

also did 94rds(don't know how we ended up that way) or .308 for my brother's fal, 150gr sp over 44gr BL-C(2). 50rds .303brit 180gr over 45gr of the same. 7.7 jap, 150gr sp over i don't remember how many of RL-17, somewhere around 46 though, and some 8x56r, 208gr fmjbt and some BL-C(2). been a reloading devil lately, on my (mostly) cheap equipment. all lee dies except the .308 because they were backordered. the hornady new dimension .308 dies seem to work just fine, kinda different from the lee i'm used to , but they work. next up is 6.5 jap and 7x57 mauser. haven't decided on loads yet but i'll figure it out. gonna run real light and fast on the jap. i have a bunch of real light 6.5 bullets and i'm gonna smoke 'em out there even with the small-capacity jap. it'll handle it no problem, should get some good muzzle flash outta the 38 carbine too!

made more 115gr plated 9mm last night until 2am started again at 9am and I'm still going. i find something that works well for me, I don't make hundreds, I make thousands. The rote actions are almost therapeutic.
My daughter loads pickup tubes for me to keep it crankin'.
We'll go shoot some later today. Shooting your own ammo sure makes it even more fulfilling.
