    20190517_202054.jpg 20190516_111230.jpg I'm sick and need help!!!
    So I'm loading up some 300 B/O I have 64lb of powder (see sick) and maybe 10 or more that would be fine but.... I like lil gun for this load and I only have 1lb and giving real consideration to buying a few lb of lil gun what is wrong with me!!!
    Most of the powder I got buying used stuff auctions and the like.
    At one point had over 200lb.
    I live in Califorina no on line ammo and next month background check and FFL for ammo and a limit on amount so been stocking up only ammo I can't make is 22 and shotgun has not been worth the effort but all good to load that as well. The other pic is the back of this bench on wheels. Once I use a lb of powder i peal the label off and stick it on here sides are covered as well.
    Think I'll try 4227 have a crap ton of that 20190516_111230.jpg

    It feels normal!
    But a non reloader buddy came by the other day made him a lil uncomfortable asked if I think I'm on the no fly list.
    But at the same time he has no problem burning up my ammo.

    It's not a problem, it's just a sign of a master craftsman. People criticized Leonardo Da Vinci for similar reasons.

    The only problem I see is you might not be shooting enough.

    Your friend seems strange. Would he feel uncomfortable near a farmer's corn crib? After all that's a lot of corn.:confused:

    You seem fine. You are taking the socialist oppression pretty well. You have supplies, and are in good cheer. You seem intent on pursuing your happiness, in spite of obvious moves to thwart your liberty. I commend you , Sir.:)

    Hi, welcome. The only problem I see is a distinct shortage of 8# kegs. . .

    Isn’t shooting just a means to make more empty brass to reload?

    Or out another way we shoot so we can reload ammo.

    How many reloading presses do you have? The number needs to be proportional to your powder supply.

    God bless you all!!
    Being in Califorina you get pounded with the evils of gun ownership and constantly trying to protect me from myself.
    After a while you start to question what your doing.

    They have infiltrated your friends mind.

    Luckily, he has you.

    Carry on. And find a good powder shop over your nearest state border. (They don't check trunks yet do they?:()

    jeeptim,
    I am not a lawyer but you might want to check CA Health and Safety code.
    I can't find the exact piece I was looking for, but it starts in section 12000. I think 12001(f) is where it says 20lb or less is ok.
    As I read it you are limited to 20lbs of smokeless powder, however I may be mistaken.
    I would hate to see anyone get in trouble for an honest mistake.

    20 pounds? What! What! What!
    I guess we should keep quiet about loaded ammo and primers.
    Shhhhhhh...

    Can we play guess the cartridge based on the powder?
    You have away 300 BO.
    My guess is 223 for all the blc2, h322 and tac.
    The bullseye means 45acp or 38spl.
    The w760 and superformance are 243 or 7 mag of some sort.
    R10 had me scratching my head.

    You have a good stash. It's like a woman's shoes. Your guns and bullets are the different outfits that must be perfectly matched by the random powders.
