    Loaded up 50 12ga shot shells to round out the 100+ I already had done to do some practice tomorrow and busting clays on Sunday with the family. Loaded up some more Lyman 525 gn Slugs too.

    Cleaned up and got my new classic cast turret installed right where the old one went. Setting it up to crank out some new 380 rounds now, testing golddot and hornady xtp.

    Loaded some 38 spl rounds. 3 gr of 700x under the Lee 358-105 swc. Light recoil and fun to shoot out of my s&w airweight.

    I picked up a Llama Especial .22 1911, has a few issues. 1st was a very dirty chamber, could not "plunk" a round in, was tight. Cleaned the chamber well. It is easier to push a round in but still no "plunk". Now a CCI mini mag will fall in very easy, but cheap bulk needs a push.
    2nd is the feed lips of the magazine. very worn, did the best I could and did get the pistol to fire and cycle 100% with the CCI ammo. Still have troubles from the cheap stuff. I feel if I can get the chamber reamed just a bit it would help a good bit. The mag is a different story, they are few and far between and a bit on the high side. All and all I am happy with the little 22 1911.

    Finished the .357 Mag loads I was working on that I mentioned a few posts back. Set them up for a ladder test. 10 rounds Red Dot at 5.0/5.1/5.2/5.3/5.4 each . Hoping to test them & some others tomorrow if I can.

    Not much today. Separated 9mm//.38/.40/.45 brass after a match and some practice sessions, separated my previously marked .40 cases from unknown .40 cases so I can run the unknowns through the Case Master Jr. getting ready to load my first run of PCed boolits.

    Loaded up 2 dozen or so each of the 90 gr GoldDot and Hornady XTP rounds for my 380. Both just under the max charge advertised in respective manuals of n320. Would be nice to have another use for that powder.

    Melted 30 lbs of Roofing Lead into ingots and another 30 lbs of Range scrap into ingots as well. Starting to cool off here. It already snowed last week and I wanted to get these done before winter so I can cast more slugs.
