    I have a lot of bullets cast and everything load. Now can't shoot because the range is shut down until further notice due to the bug.

    I PCed a bunch of Lee 358-125-RF and sized them down to .356" for use in a 357 Sig. I have a whole pile of 356-120-TC to PC now.

    I also plan on working up some loads for and reloading a ton of 7.62x39 just as soon as my order of powder gets here.

    Add to previous list

    Load another flat of 20 ga skeet loads. I know that's not a lot, but when you already have 10+ flats ready, sort of pointless

    I've been organizing my brass stash and I'm about 90% through. I just about have my 45's and 44's ready to load and have enough bullets cast to cover them. I'm about to start loading for a 41 Magnum. I have 500 new Starline cases primed and ready to go and a new mold waiting to be used.

    I have been pulling .45 ACP 200gr SWC for a friend, he had a few cases rupture so decided to stop shooting the whole lot which is around 1000 rounds, this should keep me busy for a few days.

    I found out approx a month ago that 650~ rounds of 45acp that I loaded a while back were not taper crimped properly and were causing failures to feed-
    So I corrected that over the weekend.
    Yesterday I started prepping about 1000 40S&W cases I've had cleaned and waiting for 6 years lol.

    Between casting and loading, my shelves are about to break down and my empty case containers are about empty.

    I just got done loading up a bunch of 30-30s. Last year I developed, mostly by accident, a super accurate load consisting of 25 grains of surplus CMR100, Winchester LR primers, and the Lee 150 grain FP. I shot them all up in my Savage 340, giggiling to myself as I did, and didn't try them in my Marlin 336 or Winchester 1894 so that would be a plan for this year. Because I can't leave well enough alone, I loaded some with 24 grains, some with Winchester magnum primers and also loaded up a bunch with the Lee "soup can" and the same charges of CMR100. It's still winter here so it may be quite a while before I test them.

    Think I'll clean up my Pro Melt 2. Now that it's "Rare" I should keep it pristine. LOL I cross pinned a six cavity and want to see how it casts.

    Hi Wayne, both Doc44 and I have 9.3x57 Huskys. I have a couple of really good loads if you want them. CFE223 and the 270 Speer was crazy accurate, but only around 2200fpsish. 4895 seemed to burn the best and gave 2550ish with a resized Speer .375" 235, which gave near 1" groups. Took a Deer with the 235, penetrated stem to stern and kept going.

    Working on brass for 308 test loads to be loaded as time permits. Have about 100 annealed, sized, and trimmed so ready for powder.

    Have some PC I can do as the weather has warmed up a bit outside making the garage more comfortable.

    Have a brass MP mold that I have only cast 80 of one HP pin from. Three more pins to go and I would like 160 of each.

    If I get incredibly bored I have a 5 gallon bucket of 223/5.56 to sort by head stamp. Then I could swage primer pockets, size, trim and put up for later. Saving that for if the internet breaks or all the streaming services die.

    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.
    Feedback page http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...light=RogerDat I do trade a bit from time to time.

    Got the .38 specials done today. Tomorrow I'm going for the .45 acps. Then I'm heading for the .300 BLKs. When I finish with those, I've got a 5 gal. bucket full of 12 gauges waiting to be reloaded. After that, the 20 gauges are waiting. When those get done, I 've got a bunch of 16 gauges that are calling out. By that time, I'll need to start making shot again. Then.....

    I had all my cast bullet shooting firearms stocked-up and ready for action before curfew, so I was zeroing my AK's red-dot.

    ...I might load up some 38spl, since I do have a few thousand cases to fill; but I'll have to see what kind of powder is available, before I make my decision.

    I took both a blue and a stainless Walther PPK completely apart (each by itself), sparingly polished mating surfaces, put them back together and took out some of the roughness and a little bit of the resistance in the trigger pull.

    I had first done the same with my stainless Ruger SP101, completely apart, moderately polished, which helped lower its trigger pull and smooth the action.

    I am considering powder coating (for the first time), 2500, Lee, 50 grain, 22 Bator boolits. Taking those to 223 caliber velocities would be a fun ride. Making them was hours and hours (and days and days) of fun dropping from that 2-cav. aluminum mold.

    I need to reload 223 caliber, 55 grain, jacketed rounds for my AR15, but I don't have a single "accurate" load as the rifle is "inherently" accurate at my starting load when I put it down for larger caliber practice.
    If it was easy, anybody could do it.
