What Did You Do Today In Reloading?

Recommended Posts

I finished all my 40 brass, cleaned tumbled then push though sized. Just waiting on a case of bullets to load them up. Then I started working up a 380 load for my wife. 380 is the biggest pain in the ass to load. Also did a little straightening up of mt bench. Nice setup you got there. My next press will be a 1050 for sure. Or maybe one of the mark 7 presses.

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.

Lugged 50#'ish of bullets my postal dude/dudette left on my porch, down to the reloading room in the basement.  Between bullets and brass, I really need to leave my postal peeps a gift card (or two) again this year.

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.

Damn. I thought that I pissed ,my Postal dude by having 9x70# boxes of bullets. I met him at the driveway with a hand truck at least.

Also reloaded some 200 gr .40 cal minor loads which make me giggle when I shoot them.

Did the same today as I did for every day in the past two weeks.

 

The wife has some chores that require my attention.  But first I need to retire to the garage and load a couple hundred rounds.

 

Return to the house and by then the chores are forgotten.

 

Good news  is I won't run out of components until late Spring.

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.

^^^ That is a lot of boxes.

 

I added my black Friday buys to my Bench.  A tool head stand, primer tube holder, mirror, and case feed stopper.

Primed 200 9MM cases for some Blue Dot and 115 grain hollow points later in the week.  Nice few minutes on the bench out in front of the garage after I put the dogs in the pen for the night.

I set up my new early and very much surprised Christmas present from my wife. A new Pro Chucker 7 press.

Ran my first batch of 9mm brass through a wet tumbler with stainless pins (after a decade plus of using corncob media). Um yeah I’m liking the switch! Still need to work some bugs out in the rinse process to stream line that part but man I love that shiny brass!

Check out Brass Juice. I recently started using it, and have liked the results. No pins needed.
