    Since I finished up the .38-55 I needed to load I've started processing 7.62x39 brass. I have about 600 rounds of brass to work through and have about half of them sized, primed, and ready to load so far. 300 left to go. 100 of them are brand new Winchester cases and I'll load them with 123 grain Hornady soft points for hunting. The balance are once and twice fired Lapua brass will be loaded with 123 grain fmj's for target practice. These are all for my wife's favorite rifle which is an old Interarms mini-Mauser (Zastava mfg) that I bought over 30 years ago as a barreled action, and then glass bedded into a black Bell & Carlson synthetic stock, adjusted the trigger to about 3 pounds, and then topped it off with a Leupold scope. Nice little light weight hunting carbine that came out at 6 pounds total all up and ready to race. More than adequate cartridge for our little Columbia Blacktail deer.

    My .303 results. It took 3 shots to get on the plate. Looks ok as I'm shooting weak side weak eye. That's my story & I'm sticking to it.

    Turned on the a/c in the shed, when it cooled a bit I cast some bullets for my .357. Sometime next week I'll sort, size and lube them.

    Today I sized and lubed most of the boolits I cast yesterday. I got to snooping around and found a bag with a whole bunch of "as cast" 170 gr gc boolits. I put a check on ten of them and loaded up some .357 rounds with .7cc of Herco. Still have to get my revolver from the gunsmith as he's finished fixing my rear sight.......


    Edited due to numb fingers and a cursed tablet!

    Finally got to assemble some ammo. Not just prep components. Loaded about 50 .25 acp lyman 51 gr boolit a/1.5 gr green dot. Did this by sizing & living some boolits then loading, sizing then loading etc. Kept the boredom down.

    500 rounds of 45 Auto. Now to shoot them!

    Cleaned up the bench, shelves, & room, a bit.....

    I do not enjoy it though... It is a chore. Rather make rounds instead, but it has to be done on occasion.

    Finally got around to putting my A2 press back together.


    Now I need to get around to ordering parts so I can get the LAM1 back together.

    Didn't load today, but I made reloading opportunities in 380/200, 30-40 Krag, 30 carbine, 30-06, 450/400 N.E.,
    416 Rigby, 470 N.E. and 480 Ruger.

    It was a very good day.

    Got all of the 7.62x39 ammo loaded (about 700 rounds in total) so today I'm going to re-form some brass for my .338 /.303 British Martini single shot. (It was it was a commercial large action Martini sporter with a worn out barrel that was re-bored and re-rifled by Ron Smith out in Alberta.) I'm heading up to the rifle range tomorrow to meet a buddy and do some shooting and I haven't shot this .338 /.303 Martini in ages so I'll neck expand some of my surplus .303 brass, load them up with some suitable cast boolits, and fire-form some more brass for it tomorrow.
    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!
