    I decided to try W748 with cast in the 30-30; 29 grains of it under a 180 grain 50/50 .309” Lee C309170F, lit by CCI LRM primers. I’m using up my “baggied” gunpowder lately- this made 42 rounds!

    15.3g 3031 and a 165 RD HP in LC concerted 300 BO brass seated just below 2.100 shot single hole 50 yd group but WONT FEED. ;(

    This is best by far accuracy but won’t ever feed. ;(

    Loaded 49 rounds of 32 S&W Long with .312" 98 grain swc's (from a bag of those a buddy gave me before it warmed up enough to re-load) on top of 2.1 grains of Bullseye. This was on Saturday. Then tried a few of them out at my cousin's place, along with an ancient box of 32S&W Long wad cutters I'd loaded about 30 years ago; mostly to get the brass. The swc's did pretty good.

    PC'ed and GC'ed a batch of .357 155 gr. SWCs. Also sized and deprimed 100 .45 Colt cases. I try to spend about 2 hr.s per day fiddling in the "lab". I'm getting a lot of those "when I get around to it" jobs done.

    PCíd and sized a bunch of 9mm and 45acp boolits. I used the basket method so they arenít especially pretty but they are just plinking rounds so Iím not worried about it.

    Sized, swaged primer pockets, trimmed and deburred case mouths on 5.56mm. Sized to 223 Rem specs.
