Went to go load some 38 spl last night - discovered that I misplaced an entire container of prepped brass. 500 rounds - poof. they were primed and flared too.... no sign of them anywhere. seriously hoping I didn't accidentally toss them in with the brass I traded off awhile back. or worse yet, somehow dump them in the garbage by accident.

Bummer. I can't find some Berrys 125 Gr .38 bullets. Maybe they are with your brass. If they show up let me know how they shoot for you. :)

Primed too, real bummer.

Don't feel bad, I went to relaod some 9mm and could not find a single case in my stash. I knew I had at least 3,000 cases but could not find them. Teared the whole reloading area appart looking for them. Then stopped and thought a while, yes they were just where I put them, behind my unloaded bullets, two coffee cans full of cases, now how did I miss that??

When my primers started disappearing, it turned out to be my teenager shooting wax bullets in the basement. By the hundreds.

Maybe they will turn up in time. Amazing how we misplace things from time to time.

A mind is a terrible thing to lose
The only good part is finding stuff you forgot you bought. I found 1000 jacketed .357 under my bench.Sorta remember the one 500 box.

Maybe they are the same place as my dozens of pairs of pliers and 1/2" wrenches are.

I usually lose things after/while "organizing". But I recently "found" two forgotten bricks of .22s. Then when checking my .38 special brass to do a trade I found out I had about double what I expected.

Does anybody keep a running inventory written down, or just go by sight/memory?

I'm told as we get older our memory is the second thing to go. I forgot what the first was...

I never lose or misplace anything in my loading area. This is due to the fact that my wife doesn't know enough about it to do me any favors, or apply her strange relocation and non-remembering techniques.:D

Check your range bag. You probably loaded them with some sweet 158's and they are ready to go!. well I tried

Are they in your hand? Happens to me when looking for sunglasses.

You got that right, if I leave anything in the kitchen or living room it's a guarantee I will never see it again....

I'm still looking for some .45 auto brass I'm missing but the stuff I've found while looking for it makes it okay in my book.:cool:

That'd be my answer too. No point in writing it down for me yet. If it's not loaded up it's either sitting on one of my 2 shelves or on the bench. Easy enough to see what I have if I need to know. The only exception is the odd ball range pick-up brass, which for me would include some .25-06, .270, .30-30 casings, etc., calibers I don't reload. I hope someday I have enough reloading supplies that it's necessary to keep a list, but that won't be anytime in the next couple years.

While my divorce was a traumatic experience, I do not miss the relocation and non-remembering drama. If I set something down, I expect to find it 10 years later in the place I left it.

I had a couple of relatively similar items happen in the past two weeks. I was scratching my head as to why I had about 50 of my .405 Win loaded cartridges missing. Searched for about 20 minutes checking and re-checking boxes, etc. and just figured I would stumble over them eventually. What had happened is that I bought a couple of transparent blue plastic 50-round storage boxes for them and the missing ones were sitting next to my .357 Magnum boxes. Right smack in plain view.

The second item which happened last Tuesday was that I was looking for a matching rubber boot when I found a cloth bag with three land surveying books I bought about five years ago and totally forgot about them...

Yay! found them this weekend.

I was loading some .357 and noticed that the container was a lot more full than I had remembered it being. Dumped a bunch out - sure enough, I threw the 38's in with the .357's annoying to sort out, but all is good now!

I tore apart my reloading room twice looking for my 22k hornet bras , once fireformed and all the prep work done and ready to load . Turned up in the spare tumbler that had been moved to a out of the way spot , found them of course when i needed to run that second tumbler
