Reminds me to order more 10MM bullets, 180 or 200 grain, if possible.

Order placed with Scheels for some 10MM 180 grain bullets, good price fast delivery. So far they have had the bullets I have needed.

Cast some 175 gr., 8mm round nose to load for the old Husky roller in 8 X 58RD over some yet to be determined charge of IMR-4227.

Don, I'll measure them. They're from a cheapy Lee mold that was even cheaper because it was given to me....and it says .324 but it ain't right, not from a 13-14 BHN alloy because I size and gas check it in a .327 die and the sides are just wiped clean but not touched. I have sized that bullet down as low as .319 but boy, even lubed in a .327 die first the lube grooves become mighty narrow. That's my biggest complaint with Lee rifle bullet molds, those itty-bitty, narrow lube grooves....and paper thin sprue plate.

I cast some 350 gr., 11.15 X 60R bullets yesterday as well and 260 gr., 45 Colt is on the agenda for today.

Edit: I measured the 8mm bullets and they go .326. I still have the slug from the Husky roller and it too mic'ed .326 so, the bullets remain at groove diameter. I sure can't complain. Even with as far off the lands as that bullet rests it shoot just about one ragged hole at 50 yards with either IMR-4227 or Reloder 7. Sorta fly's in the face of convention but, I have the old targets to prove it.

My C96 Broomhandle 's barrel is pretty poor and don't shoot good groups but it's such a cool gun I love it !!!! I tracked down some little bit bigger bullets (sorry going blank on size) and they came in . So after leaning my old 30 Mauser brass I used 3.; Bullseye and 78gr RN bullet . This old gun won't ever win a shooting contest but it's just neat .

I will be later on. Received these last night. 500 55grn bullets from xtreme. I weighed a bunch of them and they are real close to the 55 grn, a variance of a max -.4 grain difference.

I got 50 pieces of 223 loaded today. That included all the prep work and loaded onto clips. My hands were just cramping up something fierce today.

Have you been so bored in winter you go buy some brass JUST so you can reload something ?
No sir but, I have a lathe, a mill and several cans of '06 and other brass that I can always make more if needed....and sometimes I do...

Cast 50lbs 160gr,HTC,resize them today

Wow....I don't know how you guys do that much at one time. I'd be looney long before I did that much/many.

Knocked out about 100 .45 acp yesterday, ill probably knock out another 50 when i get home tonight and finish off all my freedom flowers i have. need to find some more to finish out my required 1k stash. Then ill probably work on .40 and .38 later on. only running 4.9gr with a 185 gr bullet. when testing they were tightly grouped so i figured it was good and continued with the rest of the 100.
