    7000 ÷ 5 = 1,400
    7,000 GR. (grains) in a pound divided by 5.0 grains per round will get you 1,400 loaded rounds per pound of powder.

    A co-worker of my son handed him 2 bags of .243 WSSM. The guy had sold his rifle and heard I had a WSSM. Counted 99 fully loaded but he only remembers they are max loads. So I'll start pulling them soon.

    I found a pound of IMR 4227 today at a LGS. Tomorrow I will load up some .357 rounds for my Henry rifle. Looking forward to trying this powder.

    Just mounted a new to me Lee Turret press. Got it from a member on a local forum, and picked up a couple of turrets set up for 45acp and 38 spl from a friend. Forgive the mess that is my reloading bench.

    Prepped a 3 lb and 2 lb coffee container of 9mm. Now the worst gotta decide if I should sort by headstamp which is not fun. Would pay for young eyes again.

    I still have pretty good eyes, 20/15 in one eye according to the lady at the DMV. I have CDL so I have to get a physical every two years. Even so, I've noticed I can't read small print as well as I used to, especially in dim light.
    I use one of these when I am sorting brass, and I keep an LED desk lamp off to the side and pointed at the lens. Once you get it positioned right, it makes sorting much easier to see, thus much faster.

    A bit tangential, but related to reloading.

    Built a rolling work bench yesterday for bullet casting (among other work).

    I used to work for the local newspaper years ago and they threw out the frame of an obsolete color separation machine. I grabbed it right away with the intention of making a work bench out of it. The thing was in my way for years and years, but yesterday I finally made the dang bench! I can store all of my bullet casting equipment underneath when it's not in use so that I can use it for an ordinary workbench when I need it.

    I took a little break from tumbling brass but got back into it today. Have a load of 30-06 brass in the tumbler and another load on deck.

    Went to load up a few hundred 9mm R-P yesterday. Real good surprise. Found a Folger coffee can from 2016 with 500 of my own 9MM R-P cases, all primed. Never knew I had them and that they were all primed.

    I also discovered that I had way too many R-P 9mm cases probably need to reduce that inventory.

    Was going to prime, powder, and seat today but I got an email from FA saying they are sending me a new powder measure. Which I have no problem with. However I just don't want to have to make it work since I have a working one now , so hopefully It was just a fluke. Anyways. slow day on the bench today..

    Yesterday I received 40 ammo boxes from Berry’s. Today I got RCBS lube die #3&4 along with the bench swager. Lube die #1&2 are on back order along with another bunch of items. Hopefully I will be able to start loading .40 & 357sig when all the other stuff arrives.... namely dies.
