    I just finished loading the last of my 38sp cases last night. Crap I have a lot of 38s. I tossed over 600 of them loose, in a old metal 50cal ammo case. I was buying the 100rd cases but that got old. I have 7 of those full. Plus a couple boxes of factory I got somewhere. I do not have a single empty 38sp case anywhere.

    Now onto the 357mags.....:D

    Yup, old single stage RCBS. This has been an ongoing project. Took me about a month to do the last 500 or so. Didn't help when I took a range day and shot through a 100 or so.

    Send them on over. But if those are 357mag, you may not get them back!:D Just resized about 350 cases last night. Next step tonight, prime the next night, then start loading them up

    I've got a 5 gallon bucket over half full of 38 cases to trade up for .357 although I have roughly 1000 .357 empty cases or so? I buy the 1000 bulk pack bullets and load them all up and shoot them over the course of about 4-6 months then start over. keep about 700 more on hand that I loaded years ago.

    I hate running out of brass, I hord the stuff like it's gold!
