    Yep. Thirty deer/ hogs/ coyotes/ antelope. Actually had that many virgin unprimed brass sitting there looking at me as well as a box of NBT with 39 bullets left in it so.....
    Bookworm- years ago in Kansas I carried my 30" 12 ga H&R Topper with 5 shells in the butt cuff. Hunted all day and got two cocks with 3 shots. My twenty something guides had Bennelis with decals and carried 2 boxes each of 3"shells. One young man paid more for his choke than my gun cost. They asked if I had more ammo; I replied-" Did they raise the limit?"
    I felt vindicated at day's end when only one hunter got 3 cocks but he used a lot of shells to do it.
    Sorry for the rambling!

    Resized about 2K 44 magnum cases today and wet tumbled them. Just got the last batch out of the tumbler. My right arm is tired!

    Loaded 50 rounds .380 - 102gr. Lee RN 2.7gr. Bullseye, Wolf SPP, mixed cases, COAL .970. Gonna shoot these beasties from the KelTec P3AT and the DB380.


    Last night I tore down my Pacific (Hornady) powder measure. Today I pulled apart the RCBS hand priming tool. First time I have done it in 14 years of using it. Scrubbed it all down and oiled it back up. Seems everything being stored for 2 years unused got it all gunky and seized up a little. I am glad to be back at it!

    Cleaned and sorted 44 mag and 223 brass.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    Sorted and weighed the last batch of .32 80gr boolits while the pot and lubrisizer were beating up. Cast the same boolits till I was tired of it. Lubed and sized sorted boolits. Then seated PB gas checks on them. Next time lather rinse repeat till all the checks are used up. Then load them in 7.62x25 for my Posh 41 and 2 TT-33s. Then cast more for my Astra 1916.

    Just changed the barrel on my Glock 22 with a 9mm conversion barrel...
    Now I guess I need to make some more 9's, and can now do cast ...😉

    started rendering chunks and lumps of grey antimonius material into super gorgeous ingots, got 3 milk crates full, should be a good start on my casting inventory for this winter.

    Sorted through another big pile of fired brass and another batch will go into the ss pin tumbler tomorrow. Sorted a bunch of odds and ends of junk ammo that was donated to the cause and will pull it all down to salvage the brass and bullets (plus I will save any live primers for fire-forming duties).
    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Working some .308 brass to make some .45 Colt jackets. I did get 50 or so annealed, started with 3 to get the posses down. Still working out the bugs but it looks like they will come out to right at 300 grans.

    Finished tumbling my working stock of 44 magnum brass and started sizing and tumbling my working stock of 9mm brass. Took a break and hit 2 parts stores and an implement dealer looking for "O" rings to rebuild my Lyman 450. Tested an ingot for hardness and did an acid test for a buddy. Drilled and tapped a Lee mold for a set screw for the same buddy. Watched the Sun set while sitting in the shop door with a beer!
