Reloaded some 358 Win and 308 ME yesterday that I shot at the range on Monday. Next reloading session will probably be during the weekend. I plan on shooting again tomorrow but haven't decided what firearms will be making the trip yet.

...in 38- and 45-grain weights.. Have new, correct-size ammo boxes coming; those too are hard to find.. That's a 40S&W round on the bench for cmparison.

And, being on the .45 kick, I loaded up 100 LRN and 17 XTPs (that's what I had in prepped brass) the other day.

.357 Mag is next on the block.

Like I mentioned before, .357 magnums were on the menu.

50 14.0gn 2400 behind 158gn SWC
25 14.0gn 2400 behind 158gn Winchester JHP
25 14.0gn behind 158gn Hornady XTP
50 17.0gn 2400 behind 125gn JHP

Next is .30 Carbine...which I hate because they need to be trimmed pretty much every time, and I hate case trimming. I have the Frankford Arsenal case trimmer system for bottleneck, but need to go Old School 2.0 for the straight-wall:


Only got about half of the cases done last night...

I loaded 100 rounds of my light trap load 12 g on Saturday, despite 'pre-lubing' w/ ibuprophen my right shoulder was sore afterward. Went to our monthly Tournament on Sunday ....... and kept score. Either smaller batches to reload or higher doses of ibuprophen appear to be needed.

Just loaded 100 .223 with H335 and 65 grain Sierra Gamekings. I need to call and complain to Sierra, they mislabeled the count in the box of bullets. There were supposed to be 100 but there were 102. JK, it’s like winning the lottery.

Handguns first:
9mm - 400
40 S&W - 300
.44 Spl - 250
.41 mag. - 200 (150 cast & 50 jacketed)
.45 ACP - 200
Rifle next:
.223 - 400
.257 Roberts - 100
30-06 - 60
Now that wasn't done yesterday, or today - more like over the last week. However, it's a pretty darn good start! Now i need to fire up the furnaces and get back to casting!
