    Vibratory dry cleaning case lube off finished reloads?

    I’d say you need to clean the tumbler. I like clean shiny rounds and yes I know I don’t need to do it. But they are sooo purty.

    I left some 9mm ICORE loads tumbling for 3+hours the other day. Boy they were really shiny

    S&W 686 Conversion Grips

    They just take a while. I'm still waiting on mine I ordered at the IRC.... My wife just took one off the table even though it's not what the colors she wanted but it fit perfectly. Good things come to those who wait.

    ‘It’s actually the optics not quite ready. It was released up here last week. It comes with removable irons ready to be removed for a mounting plate.... that will be out in March and not for every optic. No c-more, which is what we’ve got. glad we didn’t put down a deposit. Going to get 2 regular 2’s milled in a few weeks.

    Round count question

    Given the cost of 38sc, I'll take my 929 any day. I find enough once fired 9mm brass at my indoor range make my match rounds, after that it all goes in the practice rounds bin. I use 165gr 358's too. That load is ~124pf and the timer had issues picking up the shots last match it was so quiet and soft shooting. My wife wasn't happy as she had a great run that stage and had to reshoot it. figures.

    What Did You Do Today In Reloading?

    And its all sitting on my reloading bench. My wife shoots too, so I reload for 2. The bench is a metal one I found at my shop.

    What Did You Do Today In Reloading?

    I really po’d the mailman at our P.O. Box. 52,000pcs or 1300lbs total lol. The guy running the mail store store left a pile of boxes where the mailman dropped them off. I got 15% off for over 50k. Thankfully I rented an suv for a trip to a match, my car could not have hauled that load back. I didn’t do the math until I got home, well I did in my head and was 900lbs off..... and cdn customs opened 1 box and let us go.

    Sorted out 23lbs of good brass from a mix of aluminum, steel and .22's. Now just need to separate the 9, 40, 45's.

    Using N340 with 180g PD FMJ Bullets (Major PF)

    I shoot IPSC, ~165 isn't going to work unfortunately. I like ~175 to allow for different chrono's. It's nice as N310 goes a little further.

    what am I missing about .40 S&W reloading

    Do any of you get a few rounds not passing due to a crooked bullet? It's still happening 2 different bullets. I'm using a 650 with a redding seating die and a floating toolhead. It's not that many (5-6%) and I use them for practice and they go bang. I just started using the U die but that's not helping either. It's not a huge issue, it just bugs me as I don't have issues with 9mm.

    Using N340 with 180g PD FMJ Bullets (Major PF)

    I've been experimenting with N310 recently. I think I have a load that works for pf (4.3gr), I just need to compare with my usual N320 loads (175pf)to see if it's worth the switch. I had some N310@ 4.4gr 190 coated and was getting 179-180pf Sunday. Only had 4.4 and 4.5 loads made up at the time. Primers looked fine, loaded @ 1.215 Ibejheads 190gr roundnose. I was going to go to the range last night but never left the house....

    Not to mention using clean powders. I used factory Speer 40’s for the 1st time on my brand new gun and boy were they dirty, really dirty.
