What did you do in the reloading room today?

    Yep.

    I cast bullets for every thing listed in that post. With the taper crimp dies I can make sure that the crimp is right for what I cast.

    PSA did list a .38spcl taper die, but I roll crimp those because they are used only in revolvers.

    Cleaned some brass. Technically I did it in the garage not the reloading room. ;)

    That isn’t the garage, that is the Reloading annex.;)

    Loaded a couple hundred rounds of 45ACP with the last bit of Bullseye. Combination of Hornady 230 XTP, 200 LSWC and some other odds and ends from pulled ammo.

    Decided I needed to use up some components to make room for more. ;) Loaded up 100 rounds of 30-06, for the “finest battle implement ever devised”. Also loaded up 200 rounds of 44 mag. I have never used up that much powder in one loading session before.

    I got 50 rnds of 30BR loaded. Process: 0000 steel wool on outside neck, spinning brush on inside neck, bushing neck size/decap, clean primer pocket with spinning primer pocket brush, weight sort primers, prime cases, charge cases with powder via Autotrickler, weight sort bullets, BTO measure sort bullets, seat bullets. There was lunch and a nap somewhere in there too. I swore I would never get into benchrest competition shooting and now I'm neck deep.

    Found eight cast 130gr bullets with sub par coating to weight a pinewood derby car.

    And ordered up a pyrex powder hopper

    Loaded about 1500 rounds of 9mm Sunday and Monday. :cool:

    I need to buy a casefeeder ASAP. Could've probably doubled that number if I wasn't having to feed cases into the tube 20 at a time.

    Don't really have a room but I finally got things started with my portable single stage setup. I deprimed, sized, and primed about 20 .243 Win cases..... Super excited to get started.
