    Waiting for the Dillon XL750 to see how high the top shelf will have to be:

    Shot those seven rounds this AM early, so over the course of the rest of the day I tumbled, sized, tumbled, trimmed/deburred/chamfered 12 more OF cases and am tumbling them again for a few minutes.

    Long day, went to gun show in the AM. Picked up a used Rock chucker cheap and 16 lbs of 231 for a discount. Came home mounted the new press and resized 500 9mm. Rolled off 300 9mm from the LNL. Had been away from home for 3 weeks, feels good to be adding ammo.
    Still have not got around to adding shelf and drawers to the bench.

    That is a neat, clean, organized loading bench. It looks nothing like my mess.

    Loaded another hundred or so 20's on my Lee Loadall and I'm afraid after bragging on it being 40 years old it may be wearing out.

    The pin to knock out the primer in the first station is starting to come out about every 5 - 10 shells. When I quit for the evening I put it back in with some glue. I'll find out tomorrow if it holds.

    I decap all my brass for wet tumbling, and I use that step to sort the 45acp into large and small primers.

    Loaded, guaged, and boxed another 500 rounds 9mm last night. Loaded up another 800 primers in tubes and considering cranking out another 500-800 rounds.

    Spent the Morning Decapping FC .223 Cases over 700, they were crimped in,
    Makes it much easier to size w/o the primer, as some get hung up during the sizing operation.
    Did this on my 550 Dillon.

    Sorting and tumbling brass and getting everything cleaned up and organized. It is amazing how stuff just seems to accumulate!

    I know this is off topic but someone had to say it.

    Took a break for a couple of days because I just didn't feel good. But back to tumbling and sorting last years collection of range brass. I deprime and tumble it before storing it away and I resize all of the pistol brass.

    Yesterday afternoon my Grandson and I reloaded 50 223's with his Deer load. I did the setting up and adjusting and let him do everything else. Well except for the case trimming. The Giraud was a little difficult for him and I did the trimming. This was his first time and I think he enjoyed it.

    I did a little bit of shooting at my parents house today. Mostly 357 at about 100 yards. I didn't hit much and lost most of 45 acp brass :fire:. It was kind of a let down. But now I have some brass cases to prep. Deprimed and resized about 55 cases and getting ready to throw in the cleaner. I was hoping the wife would have been at work today so I could dry the brass in the oven.

    Got a second RCBS Turret and set it up today. Rough as a cob. First dabble with the .45 Cowboy Special. So far, it ain't doing what I wanted it to.

    Get a cheap food dehydrator. They work really well for drying brass. You will also not get the wrath from your wife for using her oven.
