I loaded 750 rounds of 1 oz. 12 gauge. Actually 749.... Still can't find that last shell. I figure I deprimed one shell twice, but I'll never know.

FedEx delivered my .223 bullets on Saturday. So I'll be working on them this week.

I am making form dies for 19 Badger, but my feet hurt from standing in front of a lathe.

I think I will watch TV.

I loaded around 10 or 12 .357's when I realized how messed up my loading room was so I spent half the day cleaning it up and sorting out mixed brass. Then I cleaned 1,000 or so .38's, around 400 .45's, maybe 200 .44 mag's and around 100 .44 spls. I'll be off Monday so I might adjust my Dillon 550 from .44 special to magnum. I've been shooting more than I've been loading so my reserve is down, way down. KeithB 750 rounds of 12 gague slugs? What will you do with that many slugs, just wondering.

Nope. Built shelving in the closet and painted in my "gun room". I have a new toy (.38 Super) and still did not reload. Busy, busy. Soon though.

Mounted a press and powder measure on my new bench. Did some organizing. Deprimed, sized and tumbled about 50 rounds of .45 ACP. That's about it.

I did 200 rounds of .223 and some case prep on a hundred or so .270 brass. I wish I could have done more this weekend.

This was a "big" weekend for reloading! I did 10 rounds of 9mm, 25 of .410 and a whopping TEN rounds of 6mm Rem. before I went out and tested them. I don't really shoot much 9mm right now, everytime I go into the reloading room I try to load a few more and eventually use up all my bullets. Skeet season is starting up and I'm stockpiling 410 slowly, I've got nine boxes done so far.

yes, sorted & sized .380 brass and loaded the nickle plated ones with Golden Sabre slugs. I'm in my loading room usually twice a week. sometimes more depends on how much Black Powder shooting I do.

I cleaned , sized, trimmed and primed 100 .30-06 cases yesterday. I'll chamfer, deburr, and load them tonight or tomorrow.

Ive gotta get kickin on .223 here soon. I have 1000 55 gr bullets sitting on the shelf screaming LOAD ME!!! LOAD ME!!! Not to mention my match ammo for this year.

I had about 200 rounds of .223 in stock and made another 110 Saturday afternoon. But the weather was decent on Sunday and now all I have are empty cases again. It's a blessing and a curse!

Not a bit. Had a funeral to go to that screwed everything up this weekend, being that it took half a day to get to, and half a day to get back from.

And, truth be told, I'm pretty set for what I'm likely to shoot for a few months.

You guys sound like me.

I cleaned, sized, and trimmed 60 .45-70 cases last night. I'll finish them tonight.

Friday night, I cleaned my bench a little and loaded 20 rounds of .270. The brass was prepped last week.

Blazing speed, I know. :D

No I did not load anything this weekend. I keep telling myself to get down to the bench but with the weather still pretty bad I don't have the ambition as of yet.

pulled bullets or should i say hammered ,40 rounds too hot .22 hornet, deprimed the live primers (gonna catch @#$%# for that), salvaged the powder, run the brass through a neck die, then reassembled the 40 with lower powder charge and a lighter bullet. the original 13gr L'I'L Gun with 40gr V Max was a little to hot for my rifle!

I loaded 100 rounds of .45 ACP and cleaned, sized, and deprimed several hundred .44 Special, .44 mag and .45 ACP cases.
Would have done more but I went shooting both Friday and Saturday.:)

I loaded 150, or 200, .38 Special rounds.
Did more this afternoon.
I've been running out for a while so I'm overdue for a .38 reloading binge.

By spring I hope to have a bunch of .38s, some target. 45s, some .357s, and some .250 Savage and .308 hunting rounds finished. It would be nice not to have to be scrounging up hunting reloads just before deer in 2008.

I've reloaded around a thousand rds. in the last week. Lots of 45acp, some .357's, some 44 mag, and some 45 colt. All single stage, all I have is a Rock Chucker.

I started to load some 7.62x54 for the first time... Then I found out I didn't have the correct size Lee auto-prime s/h for that caliber... and couldn't find the priming arm for my press. Doh! Got nothing done.

Loaded about 125 rounds of .38spec using a classic lee loader. Brass was in various stages of depriming/sizing/priming process. All in all, about 4 hours of work.

Had hoped to cast some bullets today, but that's not going to happen.

No loading. I went to the range with three of my black powder revolvers. Wow that was fun. Real attention getter. Especially my Walker. Took the day off today. Spent a few hours casting round balls for my bp toys.

100 22-250 (squirrel season coming up)

Not really. :uhoh: I was hoping my 40 cal bullets were going to arrive Saturday, but they didn't until today. To satisfy the need I ran some rounds through the AR Saturday afternoon, but had them loaded again by 11:00 that night

LiquidTension
February 19, 2008, 01:58 AM
I bought some primers, does that count?

February 19, 2008, 02:10 AM
Hey I did too. I had to pay $2.95 for Remington's; made me sick :barf: to spend that much they were the only ones I could find. SO I made myself real ill and bought 4000

No reloading, but I got a bargain on 200 new and 50 used .44 mag brass.

Every day after work about 2 hours and 8 hours on Sunday this week.
This weeks grand total 2800 rounds of 223, sounds like a lot
But when you shoot 2 three gun matches a week you go through a lot
Of ammo.

February 19, 2008, 01:38 PM
Didn't load anything but did some casting.
1,100 .44
3,000 .38
1,500 .45

I've been screwing around for the last couple of weeks testing for 458 SOCOM. Got 40 loaded this weekend with some new powder along with 50 300Wby.

Loaded 2 batches of .45-70 using Lasercast 405's and Remington 405's. Powder for the .45-70 is IMR 3031. Also loaded a box 0f .270 Win. with Nosler 130 Ballistic Tips and an old stash of Norma MRP powder. Used a new set of Redding dies. Kinda disappointed with the Redding dies. Pulling the shells over the expanding button was very rough. Come to find out, the expanding button had machine marks on it. A few minutes with the button in a drill chuck with 320, 400 & 600 wet or dry sand paper took care of the problem. The polishing reduced the diameter of the button .0002".

i am in the process of resizing, depriming, trimming, and mil crimp removal to about 15K pieces of 223/5.56 range brass.
then comes the fun part of developing the load and mass producing it for my lifetime supply of brass and ammunition...

Did some rimfire rifle shooting Saturday. I recently picked up some Remington CoreLocts for the boys .243's. Cleaned and primed 20 rounds of brass and loaded 10 test rounds the other evening. Cleaned 500rnds of .45acp. Shot Bullseye last evening, cleaned my pistol before I put it back in the safe. Refilled the range box so it's ready for league next Sunday. Getting ready for a .45acp batch run soon.

I'm always 'in and out' of the gunroom.
