    June 2020, Photo Contest, SPECIAL EDITION: Revelation Events

    Well, we are in the midst of a virus pandemic and now just recently an incident in my home State has triggered a worldwide civil unrest/rioting. WHAT'S NEXT? I'm not too sharp on my knowledge of the book of Revelation. Maybe some 200 lb hailstones? Maybe the Yellowstone Caldera will let 'er loose in a fantastic Supervolcano eruption? No doubt something else majestic will happen, so I am again, setting aside the normal topic selection process, to open it up to any casting/reloading/shooting things that you are doing during this time of seemingly Tribulation. No older photos rehashed, please. Only new photos of what you are doing during these times.

    Noe 360-160-swc

    First batch of about 600 cast with a hard (15Bhn) alloy that's a misc mix. Another batch of 600 coming soon ...all for a large batch of 357M ammo to be loaded to a Factory type load (Alliant 2400 I think?).

    These likely will not help much if the Yellowstone Caldera let's loose, LOL

    I dont know if Im ready for anything. But Im sort of prepared. No clue what bullets are in the pics. But I do know they are all sized, lubed and ready to load or already loaded. And the ingots may be an old pic but I have enough cores sitting in my garage to make a pile about three times that size. Id feel a lot better if everything was loaded.

    My master caster can run for hours and days and almost anyone can pull a lever properly with minimum training with a result of thousands and thousands of cast being produced. Best purchase of all of my reloading equipment.
