    I was out in my shed, loading some 124gr FMJ's into 9mm's, and thought that it might be fun to see what others are loading today. I loaded 600 9mm's, and switched to the same bullet in the .38 Super. Loaded 200 Supers. What did y'all get done today? We might have to do a "shooting report" along with this.:)

    Didn't do any loading today, so how about a rolling report from the week's activities? Started earlier this week making .223 match reloads; 139 on the first night (Monday IIRC), backed by 133 on the second night. These are loaded with Varget, CCI-BR4 primers and 77gr Nosler HPBTs seated to 2.255" OAL (fits in an AR-15 magazine for Service rifle shooting). Then came the 260 rounds of 115gr 9mm FMJ using Power Pistol and CCI-500 primers.

    Oh, and today I shot up 44 rounds of .223 match ammo, but it was an older lot I loaded with CCI-400 small rifle primers.

    I loaded 50 .45 ACP, Hornady hollow points, using 5.4 grains of Titegroup. The load is from the Hornady book----I've never used Titegroup for 45 before, been a Unique guy before. To the range tommorow!

    No loads for me today. I dismantled my press yesterday and need to get on the lathe and make some parts before it goes back together.

    Haven't loaded in a few weeks; out of bullets, and not going to shoot my remaining reloads until I've replaced my stock. Waiting on my final CC payoff paycheck before I call up Missouri to try out some of their stuff...

    ...but in the spirit of the thread, i bought a new roller handle for my press. Decapped a bunch of 9mm today, just so I could try it out. ;)

    Loaded some 338 Lapua for the new stick (maybe 20 rounds)...just some basic fireforming/barrel break in loads. Also did some more research on 95 grain 6mm bullets for the 243 AI.

    I didn't complete any rounds today, but I sized, cleaned, primed, and flared 100 pieces of 45 acp, and prepped and primed 20 7.5 x 55 cases.

    Assembled about 30 rounds of .223 for my new Howa 1500. Trying to find out what it likes to eat in the way of OAL and powder. Runnin' down the variables...

    Tried out a bunch of 54R loads for the new M39 Finn. Standouts so far were the D166 loads using N140 (45) and IMR 4064 (42). But more tweaking is needed.

    Loaded some 124 gr. Hornadys in 357 SIG with some Win 540(HS6), been using AA#9.

    I wanted to try the HS6 as I have a jug of it left over from 20 ga shotshell reloading.

    Going to unload some of today over the chronograph to see how they measure up.

    Yesterday I loaded 400ea 230 grain 45ACP bullets with 5.3 grains of HP-38, about to do the same again. I need to load all I have up since the loading room is going bye-bye this summer.

    I like the responses. Seems we all have different progressions for our reloading. Some do bulk for pistol rounds; some prep cases for rifle or precision reloads. Some have stepped away from the bench to burn em up. Keep it up. Makes the whole reloading thing more personal. I was back at it again today (Sunday), and loaded 400 .38 Supers. Only split 4 cases, and only crunched one case and 2 primers (sideways).
