    I kind of avoided the reloading bench and spent the day on the other side of the room setting up a HF mini mill. Got the mast squared and the bits running true in their collets. After installing the end mill I figured the size of the milling vise and ordered it. It was pouring rain and gale force winds today. Nice to be inside and dry.

    I gave my Beretta 92 its first taste of cast (and glue). I'll shoot better when I get used to it. I've got j-words to load/burn up but the 105s are on my casting list.

    Calibrated my new beam scale...It is a ChiCom product, sold by a reputable and excellent U.S. Company...OBOY did it ever need it! Substituted what looked like buckshot and floor sweepings in the pan holder for #9 and 10 shot from my Snake load supply, and all went swimingly. ACCURATE, as it should be, and repeatable!
    IT IS A FINE AND PLEASANT MADNESS !

    Really would appreciate if you could PM me more info on loading that Lee 105 SCW. Do you load it for the 38Spl also?

    I sized and loaded a few of my first cast and coated bullets for a range test. Had the wrong seating plug in for the round nose, but that's fixed now.

    Still tumbling last years range brass. Take a load out, put a load in.

    But the oldest Son and Grandson were down for the weekend Duck hunting. Yesterday afternoon the Grandson and I loaded 50 223's. I took him through the whole process from the beginning and let him do most of it. The Giraud trimmer was a little much for him and I did most of the trimming. He did the primer pocket prep with hand tools, primed the cases with a hand primer, charged the cases and seated the bullets. I did the set ups and adjustments after explaining the hows and whys. He acted like he enjoyed it.

    With the help of a coworker, I got my new bench from the garage to the reloading room. Then I stained the legs, they'll be ready to put on in a couple days. I can then drill new holes for mounting the presses and lubricators. Ill take pictures once im done. During the Chiefs game, I sanded down and polished a new set of Lee handles to work with a recently acquired RCBS mold.
