    That is ironic, I did the same thing tonight! Who makes his rifle? Mine is Windham Weaponry and craves 24 gn H335 for 1" groups!

    Not today, yesterday I sorted a jug of range brass and put the dirty stuff in a jug of soapy water to soak. Today I'll dry it, sort it and deprime it.

    23# seems like a lot, but it's probably around 12-1500... 1500 45's is gonna be like 50#

    Naw I’m just weighing the completed round, at around 200 gr and divided that into the total weight of 23# would be around 850 or so.
    Haven’t loaded 45 on Dillon yet, so haven’t weighed any to speak of. Will probably start on them maybe this weekend. Haven’t figured out the COAL yet for a CZ-97 in 45 acp thinking 1.120 or maybe less length for the 200 gr Lee RNFP.

    Cast 500 boolits, all .224 in the 55gr range. They get powder coated and resized tonight. My oldest is stuck on the idea that we have to use J-words in the AR and I intend to prove him wrong!

    I online ordered 10k small pistol primers and 10k large pistol primers. Should be enough to hold me for a long time. Was able to get an 8 lb. jug of Unique also.

    Made a few rounds of 9mm, exhausted my supply of coated cast bullets. Need to coat some more up. Also thinking I'm going to retool the Dillon to 5.56 and start cranking that out.

Probably just make some basic loads of AR-Comp and 55gr and call it a day. I do have some Reloder 12 I need to burn up too, any suggested loads?

    Made up some loads for a coworker. 270WSM with 150 ABLR and H4831sc. He doesn't reload so I take pity once in a while and make him some. He tells me this rifle kicks real hard because it is ultra light. Last ones I made were creampuffs with 110 Sierra's. He ought to get a "kick" out of these 150's!

    Not much. Had a neighborhood kid that likes to work come over and help me do some cleaning in the shop. I just can't keep it clean!! He unloaded a couple of buckets of ingots enough that we could move them. He liked messing with them more than the other stuff that we did!!!

    What did you do in the reloading room today?

    Some of my favorites, .357 SIG using a Ranch Dog/NOE 135 gr. RF and Accurate #9. Hollow Points. Great round for blowing up water bottles. Ill set up the smelting rig soon, plenty to process.

    Pulled the bullets on about 75 assorted 38 spec. 45 colt and 38 super that have been bouncing around here for a few years they were given to me when a friend passed away , I got to thinking the 38 supers were loaded with Lee 105 grain swc I probably cast and helped him load but not sure so pulled them all down to recycle .
