    Switched over the Dillon 650 from 9mm to .223 caliber change. Finally got all back to producing .223. Have opened my last brick of small rifle primers. Will have to stop when that is used up and wait for more components.
    The one glitch was had small powder bar and needed large one, once that was changed out everything going good.

    Cast some 158g SWCs for my .357, some 175g TCs for my 10mm. Now to trim some 5.56 to get them out of my loading blocks so I can do the .357s tomorrow.

    This is 11 lbs of 358-125 FP which calculates to 616 boolits if they are 125 gr each. It is about half of what I cast today. some I tumble lubed and some I powder coated. It will be 38 SPecial and/or 9mm ammo one day.

    I love reloading. How else can you get a pseudo 38-55 bolt action?

    CW-My brother just returned from a successful Oryx hunt and asked me to clean his Ruger Magnum .375 H&H ( rainy weather). I can’t resist playing with it a bit before I return it- it’s the nicest Ruger I’ve ever handled. My .377” Lee cast 255 gr over Unique is fun.

    Powder coated 53 .358" 160 grain bullets. Set up the APP for bullet sizing for the first time and ran the new painted bullets through.

    DeRIMMING, not dePRIMING. It's the first step after annealing in making 22cal jackets for swaging out of spent 22rimfire cases. It is done with a die like a Lee push through sizer and a "pin" that clips in to the press ram and goes inside the case.
