    I swaged some PC Coated 356402 Truncated point bullets into Semi-wadcutter .357 bullets for use in a 9mm Largo pistol later then loaded up 106 6.5 Grendel cartridges for a rifle match and then I rebuilt the magazine box on a 98 Mauser to feed and load a .308x1.5" wildcat cartridge for a fall deer season rifle project.

    Perfect choice that your dad made, huh?
    The .250 Savage is legend.
    Good hunting to you.

    I chamfered & deferred the last couple of hundred new .44Mag cases. Then primed 600 cases with REMINGTON #2 1/2 LP Primers.
    Now I have 1000 new cases ready to load. Just have to get my bullets organized, & maybe cast some to get to 1000.
    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    Last night I emptied the tumbler of once fired LC 556 brass. Its brite and shiny now.

    I ran it thru the .256 mandrel die. Then thru the mighty decapper die and directly into the Dillon 600 to remove the crimp. Last steps where to the primer pocket uniformed and then flash hole deburr.

    Lastly it went into the pretzel tub labeled 25/45 Sharps for future loadings.

    A neighbor brought over a Savage Bmag .17WSM that was loose in the stock. Ugly-even for a Savage. He also brought a box of .17 HMR with it that the LGS told him would fit.........luckily there are 5 rounds of correct ammo in the magazine. I handed one back to him to show the guys when he takes the HMR ammo back!

    The other day was having trouble casting 38 cal bullets with my Lacmiller 160 gr. SWC mold, certified Lyman #2,; .005" out of round. I got out an old Lee mold, 158 SWC and cast up a couple hundred. All measured .359"-360" and mebbe .001" out of round. God old Lee "junk" comes through again...

    I got some shelves from my neighbor in a trade and am looking to see where they will be most handy. I hope to put one for powder and the other for dies...

    Today I cast more T/C boolits for my 9 mm....

    Tumbling the last few hundred empty 9mm cases. Loaded 100 380ACP. Found out a 50 cal ammo can will hold everything except the powder needed to load 300 270win with 10 grains of red dot...

    I would love to see my bench after making room in the house for one of my sons and his family to move back in for a while.

    We have out of town visitors for a few days. All that stuff that was stashed in the guest bedroom is now stacked in front of my miniscule loading bench. I won't even see that bench until sometime after next weekend.

    I’d give that comment a “Like” but I don’t have a button to press!

    Mounted my new Rock chucker supreme and sized a couple hundred 9mm boolits, the kid finally built his own bench and took the press I gave him years ago with him. Sooo I had to buy anther one right.
    One of the local stores which usually is not known for decent prices had them on sale for 129.99

    Sized 300 LEE 309/230's and 200 .401 145SWC cast bullets...

    The LEE push thru sizer is FAR faster then the LYMAN 4500 for this powder coated sizing procedure!

    Today I had to dispose of some old reloads of 32-20 so made another burn barrel "holy".
    Tumbled the brass for about 9 hours , (I forgot I was tumbling brass) , deprimed , loaded another batch and tomorrow i'll dispose of those and write this thread again until I get bored of shooting the old Marlin 94 and move on to some other gun I found a bunch of old reloads I made.
    Ain't this fun ,,,,,
    Keep breathing , it's good for ya...

    resized and cleaned some 9mm and 30/30 brass, then cleaned the pistols that I too to the range. Gotta get my 30/30 cleaned soon. I only shot 20 rounds from it, and 12 of those were mouse fart loads. Mighty fine group from those! Well, all the loads grouped well.
