What Did You Do Today In Reloading?

Recommended Posts

I upgraded from the Dillon 750 tumbler to the big 2001 tumbler.  Man that thing is heavy when it is full of brass and media.

 

Has anyone bought corn cob media (pet bedding) from a pet store?

I get mine from a local farm feed store.  They offer the media in different sizes in 40# or 50# bags.  Less than half the price at a pet store.

Thank you for the advice.  I hadn't thought of a farm feed store.  That's a great idea.

Press was acting funny so I disassembled services/cleaned and lubed found the upper link pins on my 450 were borderline seized or at the least very dry causing a binding feeling 

 

now back to making ammo by the bucket full.

I bought a "older 550B " three or four weeks ago and been trying to decide what I'm going to do with it. I don"t have much money in it so yesterday I called Dillon and got a number to have it rebuilt. Right now it looks like it will be set up for .30-30 Winchester. From what I've heard they do a very good job when they rebuild them and the press looks brand new when it comes back.

I've pretty much settled on 124gr for steel challenge using Sport Pistol, but I have  a few thousand 135gr Bayou to use up.  Loaded 30 rounds of same with 2.9gr SP and tried them out today during a twice a week practice.  Don't ask me average velocity of SD; I'm too lazy to get the chronograph out.
