Did you insulate ceiling and walls under drywall ?
The ceiling and walls were already finished, but the room holds heat and cool fairly well in all seasons. The weak link was the garage door and no weatherstripping.
Do you get a lot of unburnt powder with that load. I always seemed to have a ton in the lower loads.
I only recently started using AA9. I shot this load once and recall liking it and thinking it was dirty, but all my 2400 loads were dirty so it didn't really bother me.
I run my cast noe 154 drops 156 right at the Lyman max of 13.7 for a 158. Accurate and clean. Most mag powders need the pressure in the 30k+ range to clean up.
Glad you are feeling better.
I always enjoy your kitchen counter charging station pics.............
I had the sickness and it was a reconing, I pray you a speedy recovery
I hope they were all the same exact primers cause that could be a recipe for disaster...
This evening I deprimed and removed th on the .223 range brass. Then did a quick wipe down of my bench, and cleaned/lubed my press.
Since I changed the neck bushing this time, I checked concentricity at each stage (fired brass, sized brass, expanded brass) to make sure I was still OK. Yep, good to go.
Well, still have to seat bullets, but I'm not changing anything there, so I should be OK there as well.

Kids will get you... I was fine washing like a boss, haven't been sick in years and boom...
Washing hands and cleaning your work space is important in Reloading as I don't want to cook, (I cook every meal in my house) with loading or casting anywhere near food for any list of reasons including but not limited to lead exposure. As one can easily observe I measure powder on my kitchen counter, I wipe down powder, seat bullets, go back in wipe down the counter again and wash hands... clean is good for meals and reloads...

Makes it difficult when 30 minutes work and you're winded. Takes an hour or more to recover. Got 4 moving boxes unpacked and organized on shelves. Maybe get bench moved in Saturday.
Not any hurry, but it feels good to see some progress.
If you can clamp your press and use it for a session, that let's you move it if not perfect without a bunch of holes. Work flow can save a bunch of time and just make the job much easier. A chef spends a bunch of time on this in their kitchen, and this is bread and butter in any assembly plant.
Adjusting the height of your workbench is very important as well.
