    Today I made my 300 BO rounds for the rifle side match of the combat match this weekend. This batch is all HiTek coated and they look nice.
    I wear a Golf Glove, it helps with grip and protects my right hand. The gun is a 4" Redhawk and the load is 20g of 2400 under the NOE 429421, the BC 1103 and the MP 503 clone, 100 of each.

    Right handed people need to shop for a left handed glove and Left handed a right glove. Golf!

    Sorted the second batch of Lee 356-125-2R from a mold JonB_in_Glencoe alerted me to. I never cast anything so tiny but I rejected less than 15% from the second batch. Most of the rejects were when the mold cooled when I broke rhythm. I think I'll build an air cooled drop box with a towel on a slope so I don't have to look for a new place to drop the boolits each time. With 250g boolits there's plenty of time. I'm also used to having a steel sprue plate, easier to get sharp edged bases. These are close enough to be sharp after the sizer though.

    I just did a 3rd run, maybe 30 lbs of alloy, the darn sprue pile is bigger than the boolit pile. Started out too hot and dialed the hot plate back. I've been marking the dial. I waited a minute for the mold to cool, the second cast was in the groove. It takes very little time for the mold to cool. Think I got 6-700 out of the last run.

    Got a hold of some hard to get black powder cartridge reloading dies. They hadn't been used for quite a few years. Home was a box up on a shelf in a garage. Two of the sets were missing a die body so I've emailed Redding and RCBS about replacements. Still usable but having to swap bodies is a pain.
    Got out the tub, brushes, and sprays to turn them back to almost like new condition.

    Made 46 9.3x 57 cases from new Winchester red bag 8 mm.

    The other 4 had wrinkles and creases in the necks to begin with so they are being used to make dummies.

    Did a complete written inventory of all my rifle and pistol dies by caliber, including the accessory equipment that went with them such as case preparation tools. Took all day but at least I know what I have and it is labeled as to caliber in plastic containers in an old bookcase that I cabbaged for the task. I had an old inventory but it was well out of date and useless. Now to update my primer, powder, and bullet inventory.

    Are you planning to sell these bullets on the Swappin and Sellin forum? I can always use more 8mm bullets.
