    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.

    I loaded up 500 rounds of 45LC. Loaded 300 with Unique and the other 200 with Trail Boss. Plan on doing some casting today since its a paid holiday and we'll be in the high 40s. Enjoy all, Bob

    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 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.
