    That's done with a Dillon primer pocket swagger. The cases are sized down seven thousands at the base...

    Cleaned some .44 mag cases and .38 Spl cases and then tried out some newly loaded .45LC in my Ruger New Vaquero and in my Winchester Model 94AE. In the Vaquero they were great and in the Winchester I was hitting the steel plate at over 150 yards with iron sights. I had a big smile every time I seen the plate twist and swing and then hear that lovely sound of lead hitting steel.

    I moved out of New Yorkisstan to Georgia and am in the process of setting up a new room. Spent 4 days cleaning a concrete floor and painting.

    I polished a new 9mm push thru sizer to .3575. If it turns out I need bigger I will polish it out more.
    You will learn far more at the casting, loading, and shooting bench than you ever will at a computer bench.

    I have my pinball machines in the Gun Room too. Do playing three games of Gottlieb Touchdown count?

    Guess I did shake media out of fresh polished .45acp brass before playin pinball.

    Unboxed a Lyman case prep express and loaded the following;

    7.62x54R - 20 rds.
    7.5x55 - 20 rds.
    .303 Brit. - 20 rds.
    .223 Rem. - 50 rds.
    .357 mag. - 50 rds.
    .30 carbine - 50 rds.
    .40 S&W - 100 rds.

    I don't know which I enjoyed more - shooting it or reloading it - oh well 1 feeds the other.

    Just finished up 100 rounds of 200 gr SWC 45s over 4.1 gr of WST. That was my first 100 thru my new to me Dillon sizer die. A few Winchester cases were pretty tough to size. Finally dialed in my new to me RCBS 505 scale and was pleased to see that i am getting an extremely consistent powder charge. My Lee scale was off on my check weights so I decided I had better upgrade.

    Yesterday I reamed a 44 mag sizing die to size .451.5 It was the first time I tried something like that so it look a while.
    I went out to my new heated casting room (in my pole barn) and cast 400 good 286407 and 200 good 7mm Hammer of Thore's. My wrists are paying for it this morning.
    When did I get old? Kevin
