Very Nice !!! Love that old school stuff!!
[email protected] 1.125" for penetration tests vs. the 1st rounds listed. The final 25 were 5.2 CFEP Berry's 115gr plrn @ 1.100 to go with some other loaded with different brass. I uses Aguilar once fired brass and Remington 1 1/2 SPP. The HP rounds are being used in a glock 23 with a Trybe conversion barrel. The others an AR9 with a 7.5" barrel. I cleaned both the barrels for my 23 and did a service on the AR9. Put away the 200 Hornday xtp 10mm 155 gr bullets I got today at Sportsmans. Also picked up 2 boxes of blazer 40 S+W 165 grain ammo, added that to the stash. Was $25 a box for 50 rounds. Was hoping to pick up some .40 brass but The only pistol brass the got in was .357 Sig... about 2k rounds of it...No primers and only 4 lb's of random Hodgdon powders. Which has been the norm the past 3 weeks. They had longshot, but I held back this week on buying stuff I don't have an Immediate need for.... Even put a box of 250 HSM 124 grains BACK on the shelf even though $25.86 seems like a good price,But I have plenty, and the 10mm were more beneficial .... Oof sorry for the long post. I blame the Sailor Jerry's
I like to tinker. I get more satisfaction creating something than I do using it!
Then I cleaned my bench off a bit. After that, a friend called and ask if we could go shooting! Um, Yah!
All in all it was a good day!
I was going to mention, although the metal bowl looks like it has a green leafy substance in it and my brass adjustable dipper looks like a pipe, this is not a picture of the devil's lettuce . that is all.
~Peaceful~ way to spend my afternoon!
another 100 rounds of .223/5.56 this morning. RMR 69 gr HPBT over Shooters World Tactical Rifle.
And with the 200 loaded today, I have 1k 9mm fmj's socked away. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've had 1000 rounds of the same load (factory or reloads) at one time.
For some of the seasoned loaders here, 1k may only sound like a good start to a good start, but for me that's pretty decent.
Soooo, I deprimed / resized / mouth flared about 250 .38 Spl, 100 .357 cases... then reprimed the .357s with Win SPM primers. I loaded 50 with a long-nosed Brazos 150 gr coated SWC over 6.0 IMR target and 50 158 gr coated SWC from The Blue Bullets over 5.8 gr Target.
Tried to fill my little range box with some 45ACP.
Have about 5k to go, then I get to do the same thing for about 6k worth 20 and 28ga...should be finished by the weekend.
@Walkalong, I'll bet it's shiny!
On a happy note, I turned over my 6.5CM AR-10 build to the guy I built it for... he's pleased as punch with it, to say the least. Whoever was on the range prior to us shot 20 rounds of 6.5CM... and left the brass lay, so... SCORE! Yea, I know... wow, 20 cases! ...but, 6.5 has been Unobtanium lately, so 20 cases is 20 cases.
Retired to the Bunker, separated the brass and tumbled it. Sized up the 6.5CM brass and prepped it, separated out the 14 cases of the bunch that will need to be trimmed, first. My trimmer is currently set for .308, so I'll wait to finish that task before changing the setting. No hurry, anyway.
