    Broke in- and broke a .223 Hornady sizer decapping pin with crimped primers- duh, there was a Lee universal decapper die two feet away....... Good news, Hornady takes care of idiots with 48 years of reloading experience- free parts on the way!

    Loved this post as I spent much time this weekend answering my son's questions about reloading. His eyes lit up when I told him about the excess equipment I had acquired over the years that would give him a good start. It made me feel good when he said he still really wanted to order a Lee Loader so he would have everything he needed in a small kit he could use anywhere. Oh my... how the memories flowed. I'll never forget that first assembled 6mm round out of the Lee Loader some 40 years ago and the pride I felt when my first three rounds clustered neatly on the target. Happy to know my guns and casting/reloading gear will never require an estate sale.

    Got out my first Lee Loader (22 Hornet) and got my twin neighbour boys going with a Savage I had lying about. Cast some bullets, gave them a nice starting load, loaded 50 rounds and turned them loose on their father's gopher problem.

    Today is a casting day. A couple of buddies are coming over and we'll spend the day in the shop casting. I just moved the truck out, took a few chairs out, put some beer in the beer fridge and came in to sit down for a minute. My MS won't let me do much more at a time anymore. In a few minutes I'll go out and clean my mold and turn the casting pot and hot plate on. Looking to cast about a thousand bullets before I quit!

    Over the past few weeks,,,, I'm working on getting my back log of 9mm brass loaded up. I have discovered that My G2c won't pop a wolf Small rifle primer but will pop a Federal small rifle match primer. I will be trying out some remington 6 1/2 primers shortly, I wanted to know before I run out of my winchester spp supply. Also started to work through my 38 special brass, the Federal primers will work in them and I have Herco and 150 gr round nose to put in them also some 105 gr wad cutters to use up. Used up my old partial cans of Unique, bluedot and PB. on different loads. 45 is next on the agenda to clean up empty brass laying around. May be I can find some time to go shoot some but then I will have empty brass again. What a vicious circle.

    Turned my last 150-odd pounds of harvested range scrap into a pile of 2-pound muffin-pan ingots and, while I had the old plumber's furnace fired up, melted and poured all my accumulated lino (40+ pounds) into 1-pounders. May be my last time smelting; my entire stockpile of lead/alloys is now in the form of ingots, boolits, or loaded ammo.

    Walked upstairs into the area destined to be the reloading room. Useless tinsel fairies haven’t set up anything yet.

    Well......not today, but my last couple of sessions. The lead boolits, lubed and PCed, came from Casting Machine. The JHPs came from MidwayUSA which has seemed to always have something I want to reload even during this shortage.

    Rainy here in STL as well. Finished trimming, chamfering, and deburring a few hundred cases of 30-30. Primed half of them. Hopefully friends kids will pop these off in the near future. Gonna load soft with 6.5-7 grains of Red Dot.
