    Finally decided to use some Israeli Military .45 brass that I bought in the 90's. Not many only 70. I let it go so long cause the cases have crimped primer pockets and really didn't shoot the .45 that much. As it turned out I only had to remove the crimp from about 15 cases, those primer pocket checking tools really save a lot of work. So, sized, deprimed, removed crimp and then primed them yesterday. Today I may load them up to finish up.

    Hi...separated brass from Sunday's shoit. Tumbled a load each of. 41Mag, .44Mag,. 45Colt and .44Spl brass.
    Still have .223, .38Spl., 9mm, 10mm and .45ACP to tumble as well as .357Mag. A lot of that has been shot over the last month or so, I haven't tumbled any because I have thousands of pieces of brass already prepped in those calibers.

    Wet tumbled and dehydrated the brass from this weekends range trip. Trimmed the 50 pcs of LC .223 brass I sized last night. After that I pulled out and bagged up the components a buddy and I are trading.

    LOL!! I use the Traditions loader. Real similar. It's a little too small and light maybe but, it gets the job done.

    Have fun and be safe! Smoke one for me.

    Had all sorts of free time this evening! Primed and loaded detail ladders of AR Comp with 150&165 interlocks in .308. Also primed and loaded detail ladders of AR Comp and 77smks, and Power Pro Varmint with 75gr bthps in .223. Sorted out the brass that I tumbled last night, but still need to do the .223 by headstamp. After all that I cleaned and wiped down my loading bench, and swept up the floors.

    Tumbled a batch of 9mm and 5.56 last night that was shot yesterday morning. Ordered a new Auto-flo bowl for the Lyman Turbo 1200 tumbler as her age of 20 years is showing and the lid no long fits tight allowing dust to escape. Cleaned my M17 for my course at Sig Academy on Sunday.

    My reloading room is a 20X20 studio "break room" ( for tax purposes ) in my shop. Lived in it for about a year an a half while the house was being built!
    Soooo on to answering the question; was in the shop working , went onto the reloading room and took a nap :rofl:

    Hi...
    Busy day today.
    Ran a tumbler each of 10mm, .45ACP, .38Spl and .223.

    While that was tumbling, I resized, deprimed and flared a batch each of .41Mag, .45Colt, .44Spl and .44Magnum brass.
    Didn't attempt a count on any of them...will get s count when I prime tomorrow(probably).
    The best guess I have is a total of about 1000 pieces of brass across the four calibers.
    Did the work on my RockChucker so that's about 2000 pulls on the handle. My shoulder is feeling everyone of them this evening.

    Sorted out the .223 brass I tumbled into LC '19, LC mixed year, and mixed plinking brass. Also put the Ranger Point Precision "flyweight loading gate" on my Marlin 1895 Guide gun. No more bloody fingers or shaved fingernails!

    Oh, soory. Yep, REAL pretty bullets. A shame to shoot them? Have fun, be safe, and remember the reason for the holiday. This great experiment in individual freedom is coming to a close so we might as well enjoy it while we can.

    Used the last of my 8lb jug of wc846 to load 50 5.56 under 55g Hornady. Really regretting splitting a 16 lb order with a buddy who has yet to load the first round of anything. ‍♂️
