This is the removed material...crazy
Amazon had the Frankford arsenal case trimmer that goes in drill for $49.50 the other day, I ordered one as I was getting tires of using my Lee quick trim on the press.
Might still be able to snag that deal! Pretty good considering most places sell it for $85+
tested sport pistol from 3.9gr - 4.1 at 1.135” and 1.120”
also re tested the load my Glock 19 likes which is 3.8gr at 1.080”
the Glock 26 seemed to prefer the RMR 124gr MW. With 4.1gr sport pistol at 1.20”. Average velocity was 1003fps, 19fps ES, 8fps SD. Grouping was by far the best.
3.9gr and 4.0gr at 1.120” also produced single digit SD and ES of 20-22fps.
Might have to load some more up and do some testing, and also see if my Glock 19 likes a similar load that the Glock 26 does. As right now I have about 600rds loaded what my Glock 19 likes.
I added an Inline Fabrication Quick Change Mount to the left side of my bench this afternoon. Now I can easily swap between the RCBS primer and the Redding single stage press.
guns and tumbled today's brass.
just gotta get the bench stained and painted to match the other one, get it inside and connect the two!
All set to order a set of 223 RCBS dies w/ brass, and bullets if available.
Congratulations. That's an afternoon at my place. The 650 just makes it too easy, the hard part is casting, coating and sizing those bullets.
I really like the way you have your single stage hung up on the side of the hutch. That's pretty cool, just don't drop it on your foot.
Just made a batch of 30-30 out of what brass I had for it (less than 100).
Kinda funny coincidence: I had exactly many cases as I did projectiles for it
Thats funny, I just finished off my 30/30 rounds last week but I ended up with seven pieces of brass left.
got most of my stuff unpacked and set up, almost ready to start rolling my own ammo, it has been almost 3 years since I used a press
I charged them with 6.4gr Unique and topped them with 140GR Zero LSWCHP bullets, then stomped them in while listening to Ligonier's Peter Lawson and RC Sproul
on bluetooth speaker.
