    arent we all lucky to have survived.... I was strapped into a jeep flying across the desert before I could even hold my own head up. All downhill from there

    No brass cases but I made these on the reloading bench today while banging to Killswitch Engage.
    .452 hand cast w/30 grains 3f. Perm curling papers, Glue stick and a piece of wooden dowel.
    It’s a Zen thing.

    I taught my kids to drive (steer) out in the fields in a 49 Willys jeep before they could reach the peddles, just put it in low, pull out the throttle on the dash, and let them handle the steering wheel. Nephews too. Just recently took it up to the property where we are moving

    I'd give my left "÷#% for your jeep.
    Love them old jeeps.

    Yesterday, I sized 1200 40 S&W nickle cases, I still have to bell them and install primers but that will come later since I have already reloaded about 800 brass cases. My son has a buddy who runs a police range and he got me a big box of 40's and I mean a big box and I already had probably 300 cases. The ones he brought me were all Winchester brass and Nickle Brass. Took about 6 hours on a single stage press. I am retired so I have to time to fiddle with what ever. Been too cold to go shoot but I will once the weather warms up.

    A few days ago I pulled the bullets off of 3 shelves out of 4 shelves and made a list of them. Today I stacked them back, in somewhat better order. Next is that 4th shelf!

    I'm tired now, but I found some bullets that I thought I was out of so I won't have to buy more. But I also made a list of some stuff I want.

    I'd be excided, get it setup, pull the handle for a day, then put it away until next year!
    500-800 rounds per hour. What would I do with the other 364 days of the year?

    This is my second batch of Gemtech 300 brass. Found them at my LGS in baggies, $25/50. Other than a few tight primer pockets, no problems, of course my loads aren’t pushing the limits.

    While the charge master lite was warming up I primed the 9mm and .223 I prepped last night. Loaded the 9mm up with 4.2gr HP-38 and Berry's 124gr plated RN, if these 100 run without problem in my 9mm's, I have permission to set my FIL's progressive up for it and run myself out of bullets and primers. Then I loaded a detail ladder of N140/73eldms. Not much left to do but go shooting! Hopefully the weather cooperates this weekend!

    Moved out six more plastic bins of bullets, probably 400/500 pounds. Some I put in the metal enclosure, some on the floor in the new house.

    Moving is right up there with painting. A slow process getting ready, doing the move and then unpack.
    But once done it is well worth it.
