    I finally finished up case prep on my 30-06 cases. De capped, sized, trimmed. One at a time, one by one I don't even know how many. I think about 3 gallons.

    Thanks for the tip. I have a can of air to be used for cleaning off the press. I used dry lube under shell plate but might add a little grease.

    In the morning finished loading some test rounds (9mm). In the afternoon shot them through the chrono to see which were performing most consistently.

    I can't even begin to think of how many pounds of 231/HP38 I've burned over the years with this combo. :thumbup:

    First attempt at PC using HF white (all I could find locally). The pigment is splotchy but the gloss covers everything. If they don't lead it works for me.

    I love that combo it just shoots sweet and new shooters that go with me I usually let them run those through our GP 100 :) it’s one of my my wife’s favorites as well.

    Tested some low power .44 mag for my M69. Okay, now let's load up 500 of them.

    OOOPS. I only got 150 pieces of brass. Duh.

    Red seems to work the best. I have been using an old tumbler with powder to coat.

    Same for me, but different in the fact that I have to cast bullets. Have 500 primed cases ready to load, but only 150 bullets............

    Oh well...............I'll get to it when I do;)

    100 357 magnums with varying charges of Accurate #9. Hopefully they work pretty good. Then knocked out 200 230gr 45 Acp loaded with True Blue, with a load I know works good.

    I need to get to the range and do some testing to gather data before making more match .308 rounds. I may try to go later today. I've got about 200 more .45acp cases to run. Looks like I've got another week from H3!! coming at work this week but maybe I can get to those next week.

    Loaded 28 .32 Mag with BE-86 and 100 Gr XTPs this morning. Shot them this afternoon. Shot well, but not great, may bump it up a hair and try again, need to try Sport Pistol & IMR Target as well.

    Not one from this batch, but it looks the same.
