Thank our father for the small favors
The only Winchester primers I have left are large pistol. And the only small rifle I have left are Federal. Sorry.
I was wondering how long it would take!
I'm a maint/facilities mngr and also a robot maintenance technician, that was a toy marketing goodie from robot mfg when we bought some of them.
If I had money and time though, would be cool to program a mini robot to load cases, primers, and bullets.
Would only cost about $30k for the robot and a month or so to set it up and program it , after the tooling was made, which would probably cost another $10k.
The real expense would be having enough empty brass to keep it working. Might need to own your own LGS.
I think I could work around that, but stocking enough primers would be the cog in the wheel.
I was alluding to trying to shoot enough to keep up with the machine. So many components you would basically have to own a store.
It totally amazes me that shooters that drop a round won't pick it up after themselves. They could at least put them in the dud bucket instead of letting them lay on the range. I kinda of understand why they won't wipe it off & go on & shoot a dropped round. Not wanting to get grit in their guns. But at least pick it up. This is a normal recover from the range.
Is that green tip one of the new rem core lkt?
Look at all those free primers!
Turned a new seater plug for my 460 S&W seater die last night and put away some powder and bullets I got over the weekend.
The small case sure doesn't make it easier on my hands, makes 223 the least enjoyable imo.
Yesterday I separated brass from the last two or three range trips.
I ran one tumbler each of .41Magnum, .44Magnun, .44Spl and .45Colt brass. No counts yet, but all four calibers probably totaled 800-1000 pieces together. I won't have a count until I put them in loading trays and prime them. I reload almost all of my big bore revolver cartridges on my RockChucker.
I just prefer to load them that way.
Also put hundreds of pieces of brass in . 357Mag, 9mm, 10mm, and .45ACP in containers for tumbling in the next day or two if time permits. I have huge amounts of brass in each of those calibers ready to load on my progressives already so there is no great rush to get them tumbled.
Still need to tumble some small lots of big bore revolver brass that are dedicated to full power loads. Those I generally load in lots of 100 to 200 rounds each in .41Mag, .44Mag, .45Colt as well as .357Maximum and .375SuperMag with jacketed bullets.
Should probably tumble some of my lots of .357Mag brass that I use for full power jacketed bullet loads with 125gr, 158gr and 180gr Hornady HP/ XTPs as well.
You could say that about a lot of folks, not just shooters.
That is kinda surprising considering a couple of those look like they could be handloads/reloads...
Reloads or not they all get pulled because I have seen what happens when someone reloads too hot of a load. Yea we have shooters that come in & set up the way they want to shoot but won't put things back so the next shooter doesn't shoot holes through everything that the first shooter set up. They act like their mom will come clean up after them. LOL
BixN Andy trigger (Including sear & pull weight adjustments) as well as some XLR 34M rings on a barreled action, then mounted it all in a Manners stock.
Can we see??? PLEASE!
