    Raining here in the interior so I'm spending this weekend filling up those orange MTM boxes. I like to keep 200 reloads for every gun we use, ready for hunting season which kicks off come August up here in Alaska. Been shooting off my back porch bench and have my 30-378 & 7 mag .5, .6; but had to cut the 30-378 back to 95 grains RL-22; extractor marks. Got a new VX-3L with turrets and I want to kill something way off sometime this fall. Working on 338 fed & 6.8 too. My ARs have acogs with red horse shoes, but I can't get much better than 2 inch groups but get luckier with them than any other gun & scope. I also have a 338 win mag BAR that I have never loaded for. Got to work up a good load for that gun. I just hate come mid September, thousands of caribou and all kinds of wolves following them and me getting short on ammo, so that's what I have planned for this weekend.

    What ya all reloading yourselves this weekend?

    Anybody got a good load for starters for 338 win mag, 250 grain nosler partitions?

    I can't shoot yet but I can reload so I am loading up some .38spl. 148 HBWC. That is once I figured out, with Alpo's help how to flush seat them, ha. The only seater stem I had for my .38spl/.357 die set is the one for semi wadcutters and the skirt on it tapers down to almost a knife edge. That edge would just dig into the top edge of the bullet rather than push it into the case. I have always before been loading the H&G style wadcutters and they have a crimp ring and leave a little of the bullet above the top of the case and this seater stem worked fine. These HBWC's are Hornady and should be flush seated. A call for help to Alpo and he said he had not problem using his seater stem for round nose. It was a while before my brain finally came alive and I realized I have round nose seater stems in 38 auto and 9mm that would work just fine. Problem solved and I will just chalk it up to another senior moment, ha.

    Tumbling a whole bunch of 9mm brass from last trip to the range. Still working up a load “for a new to me bullet” for 45ACP. Looking for that combination that just makes me drool. As always I need more 125g JHP over 17.5g of 2400 for the .357Mag, going to have to start loading them in bulk so I don’t run out so often.

    got started on a fresh box of .40's for my G35 and 23, plan on finishing it tomorrow or sunday. 1000 pack to go thru the Dillon, I'm almost rounds out on .40 right now.
