    .357 mag "Plinking Laod"

    I asked one of the experts here for a suggestion on a plinking load using the components I had and one that was less than 1000fps so leading wouldn't be a problem. He suggested 3.7grs. of TiteGroup behind my 158gr. Laser Cast LSWC bullets. That load fell well with in specs in my manuals (sorry Josh but I had to check, ha.) so I set about using my RCBS Rockchucker, their 3 die carbide set and finishing off using the Lee FCD to put a moderate roll crimp on the cases. Cases were new StarLine and primers were CCI #500 small pistol. COL was 1.60.

    I have not used a lot of TiteGroup but I am impressed with how accurately it meters. I weight every tenth powder drop just to make sure things are going as planned and the TiteGroup was right on each and every time using my RCBS 5-10 beam scale.

    Now the hard part is ahead. The reloads look great, the revolvers are in excellent condition so it will be up to the shooter do his part. Hope to get down to the range in the next two weeks and see if I can keep the shakes to a minimum and let this load do it's thing.

    last night cleaned and trimmed 120 .243 cases, and tumbled 60 .222rem and 20 .30-06 cases.

    plan on another case prep marathon wednesday night.

    anyone notice primers flying off the shelf.. my local supplier store had nothing but a tray or two of odd primers.. like some large pistol and a tray of magnum large rifle.. nothing in between>

    Soundguy, at the local gun show Saturday I found CCI small and large, pistol and rifle primers for $30/1000 if you bought a case (5000). If you only bought a 1000 they were $33. I almost bought a case but I am pretty well supplied right now. Hope they stay available.

    I've got .44 Rem Mag brass in the vibro tumbler cleaning, and I'm sitting here watching the election returns. Yes, it can and does get better then this, but for tonight this will do just fine. :D

    I got up early to go to the range, looked out side and I see . . . RAIN :(, so I am going out to do some reloading. It's not as fun as shooting but it is a distant second.

    A friend, at work, gave me about 500 pieces of mixed brass, mostly 30.06 and 9mm, both of which I have already tumbled, so I guess I will load up some of those today.

    I relaoded a little too tonight. bout 200 more Toks and started on Goofys .50 Beowulf ammo. Once i got to a stopping point I started working on a beat up ol winchester model 12 a customer gave me. Had a bulged barrel and was missing a screw, plus rusted all up. I cleaned the rust off cut the barrel behind the bulge and sawed the stock off. Turned out pretty good for a rusted ol freebie shotgun..

    me and the 4 year old sorted about a month's worth of shotgun hulls today, what a chore. lost count after about 15 different gauges/brands of hulls, I'm a range scavanger.

    mostly 12g's but some 28's and .410's also.

    got almost 200# of shot ready to stuff, haven't shot skeet in almost a month due to hunting season.

    A friend gave me a big jar of RP 45acp brass a while ago and I haven't been real excited about loading it because the new RP brass is so thin I usually just toss it. Much to my delight this brass turned out to be very good-much on the order of starline nowadays. So I preceded to load up 100 rounds of 230 grain berrys plated over 4.7 grains titegroup for a nice midrange target load.
