    I wet tumbled 1000 .380 ACP brass and expanded 100 or so 9mm casings. All while painting our mobile home for a few hours and going to the supermarket. And I am 69. And sober. Life is good.

    Working on putting together a round ball for 20 gauge with the help of Ajay (superblazingsabots) My 58 cal. round balls are a touch big at .575 so sorting through options and taking measurements.

    Have a project next to the bench too. I am repairing a small bookshelf that was used when I was a kid to keep all the board and card games on. Brother, sister and myself would always argue about who had to take the game back to the basement and put it on this shelf. Still have it over 1/2 century later but the bottom framing was coming apart and the plywood was delaminating. So clamp and glue project then work at bench.

    Finished with deprime and wet tumble of about 2000 .308 cases. Some going for sale and some going on that shelf after it gets repaired. Shelf will once again have "game pieces" stored on it. Along with a couple of "rule" books for shot shell or cast reloading Lead would be too heavy but I think it can handle some brass and my Lee sizers.

    Scrap.... because all the really pithy and emphatic four letter words were taken and we had to describe this way of getting casting material somehow.

    Because defeating the difficulties of handling that tinny bullet makes us feel like kings. I have to use tweezers my fat fingers get in the way.

    Bought another lb of beeswax so now I have a few lube options to begin testing: pc, alox, Johnson wax, beeswax, some Vaseline and paraffin candles. Going to have to visit the lube forum

    Finished the 100 45ACp rounds yesterday. Gonna move on to 30-06 next... Already tumbled. Need to be prepped, OAL checked for consistency, inspected for issues, etc. Then, doing some researching & decide what powder(s) I might use this time.

    I hear you Rondaker, 22TCM can be a chore - my big headache is putting the gas checks on the boolet ! But it's just so darn fun to shoot !

    Today was a little long overdue cleaning. Emptying the trash can, sweeping the floor, hanging up a few tools. Put a batch of range brass in the tumbler. Added a few new acquisitions to the cartridge collection display.

    Sized and gc'd 550 or so Lee C358-200-RF that I cast about a month ago. Then loaded 50 of 'em up in .38 spl. cases to shoot thru a 16" rifled adapter in a $99 single barrel shotgun - something only a gun bug could love.

    LOVE IT!

    I've been eyeing picking up an H&R in 12 just to be able to get some adapters for it.
    What kind of accuracy have you found with these adapters?

    Still doing a little cleaning. Also stored away the brass that I tumbled and dried yesterday. Packaged up some brass that is going out in a trade.

    Started hunting the floor, found the loading bench. Now to get control of things so I can use my main bench. Set up my swaging presses and then started organizing things to get back to using my main bench to form several new cases I have built barrels for. Warm weather is coming and I am not ready to hit the range.
