    As of this afternoon the rest of the bullets that were requested have gone out except for gonefishin1's bullets. You are going to have to wait for my Lyman sizing die to show up. It should only be another week or so before it gets here and I am a little thin on time at the moment any how. But I will get you a few out as soon as possible.

    for the rest of you especially you AR shooters, let me know how they do for you. If you find a really good load for your AR I would be interested as I would like to expand my options when powder becomes more available. But for now H-335 is doing just fine.

    Take your time shipping, work and a steady pay check trumps all.

    Anyone have a set of dies for 223 they would trade for some 40 s&w? I would also like to try some of the 223 bullets made from 22 lr cases . If they work, i would like to buy the dies for this

    There is a local store near me (Cal Ranch) that has a Hornady press and a few other goodies on the shelf right now. I would be happy to help any one who needs one get it. The only thing I ask in return is your undying admiration and praises. If someone wants to send me an email we can exchange phone numbers and probably work out payment through pay pal. I would probably be able to buy the press and any thing else they have that a person may want tomorrow night and send it out the next day. On line the press is listed for 149 and I assume that is all it would cost in the store. Again I would be willing to help someone out so long as it only cost me time.

    I probably have a bunch of misc brass. I always pick up whats laying around whether I have a gun for it or not. I need to find it and see whats there. I will post the results and offer it up.

    If there's any 223 in there, I'd be very interested. I'm just starting to reload that caliber and am scrounging the supplies together.

    I will be interested to see what you find, I have some brass but I know that I will need more. I am not a hoarder, I have just enough to get me by until the next batch of whatever I need/want shows up at a retailer somewhere but I am trying to stock up at little at a time to be ahead of the curve for 'next time'.

    I know I have all kinds of stuff. I pick up whatever hits the ground. It will just get thrown away if I don't. It is typically once fired from new ammo. All the reloaders keep theirs. A few yrs ago whenever 380 was gone from everywhere I had several hundred pieces of brass. I traded that off to somebody that was a member here for something I needed. I had 300-400 45 GAP nickel cases at that time as well. Did the same with it. Brass is like money to the right people.

    I am taking the boy shooting this weekend with a couple of his Marine Corps ROTC buddies. I have to go out to the shop and get some ammo and mags. That's where all the brass is at. So I will be going through it all also. Hopefully the pistol range is loaded with more when we get there. That's always part of the deal. They want to shoot my ammo? Then they need to pick up all the brass around and believe me we hit all the different ranges at our club. The rifle guys keep their area picked up pretty well. Its hard to find stuff there.

    I load a lot of 223 myself and have a hoard stash of bullets, primers, powder and brass I am sitting on and have been for 3 or 4 yrs now. Somebody PM'd me earlier and wanted some 223 brass. I told him that I would trade for some pistol brass, but that's probably all the 223 I will let go of. I will post up what I find out there. I bet my range bag is full of misc brass that hasn't been sorted yet too.

    Well I just got the sizing die and am playing with the press, so I should have some bullets to send out in the next week or so.

    Here is an update.Boxer puppy got all the bags of brass and scattered them from end of the house to the other. Cant make any promises on the amounts listed. I am not sure I will find all of it , but its going to take hours to clean it up.

    When I was sorting brass my little pup and his brother would reach into the tub and grab a piece of brass and run to bed with it.

    If I dropped a piece when it hit the floor it was a race to see if I could get it before either one of them could grab it and take to their bed, LOL

    They both just turned a year old on 3/6/2013, here is a pic of my pup Killer.
