    Sized and lubed a few 9mm for my CZ. Tomorrow is range day at the Sheriff's range, and the weather is supposed to be fairly warm.


    Edit: the range was closed due to almost all of our Sheriff's department assisting the people in Beauregard and Smith's Station.....

    I finally got a mould for one of my favorite little Smiths. So... cast about 700 boolits, conventional lubed half and PC'ed half. The PC ones will be for the "magnum" loads, likely 2400 or H110 Data powder. The mould is the Saeco 325. I had been using a boolit from Cast Performance, but was not fond of the profile. This drops at .315, and get sized to .313.

    Winter doesn’t seem to want to end here in Manitoba, Canada. So I decided it was a good day to give my older Dillon SDB a thorough cleaning. When I started I noticed some side to side movement in the crank handle. Which lead to this:

    So it’s now all cleaned and I sent an email to Dillon to replace the worn parts. Which are these:

    This was the oldest of my Dillon’s. Now I’ll lube my other two SDB and the 550. I know there are no surprises in these presses. Some day it will warm up enough for some trigger time!!

    So I emailed Dillon my list of worn parts on Saturday. Rec’d a confirmation email Monday and was advised parts shipped Tuesday. That folks is incredible service.

    Trixter, I’ve had a blue midway bullet puller forever and use my plastic bench hammer to wack it against. I know that you’re not supposed to hit two hammers together but I think this is ok.

    Saturday I deprimed about 400 9mm with military primer pockets, then yesterday I swaged the pockets and this morning I tried about 6 of them to be sure they were going to be ok. They are ok now and I can get busy with the rest of the reloading process. I love this hobby

    Setting up to cast, right now. Just waiting for the pot to come up to Temp.
    Going to cast N.O.E. TL432-240-RF 4cav, Lee 452-230-TC 6cav & Lyman #358477 4cav.
    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    Cast a large pile of Lee 356-120-TC and a much smaller pile of the Lee 309-160-R from my ancient single cavity mold. The 9mm mold is a 6 holer and I'll set it on top of the lead pot as soon as I plug it in. By the time the alloy melts the mold is hot and ready to go. It doesn't take long to empty the 20 lb. pot once the rhythm kicks in.

    Loaded three different loadings of 300 H&H to test out along with a handful of 7mm-08. Might get to the range on Sunday afternoon.

    I'll be heading out to the shop shortly to fire up the casting pot. Prolly cast until the T'storms roll in.
