Put my little helper (5 yo daughter) back to work and prepped 200 50 Beowulf cases. In the vibrator now removing all the lube (giggity). Will finish them later tonight. I built an inside portable loading bench yesterday and it's working quite nice.

Finally finished some other projects and made time for a hobby I forgot about for weeks.
Cast some.36 cal balls loading up my first .410s. Had components for couple months just no time or initiative.
Turns out this can of lil gun has .410 load data on label. Never looked before. Used only for.50 Beowulf loading.

Anyway…
Graft and Sons 2.5" primed hauls
Claybuster WAA410HS cups
.125" nitro cards
Drill mount roll crimps.
3-.36 cal balls is a hair under 1/2 oz
Gonna have to find something for shot cover or just use another whole card. Probably just peel them in half though.

You could probably make an over shot card of a thick, non corrugated cardboard. Cut it out with a sharpened .41 mag or .44 case and crimp it over top?
 
I am working on 500 steel cases for 7.62x39.
Obviously, they are Berdan primed, which doesn't bother me at all. I have been using a RCBS Junior to size the steel cases, it's been a lot of effort. But a forum member recently sold me a large RCBS press and boy it takes about 25% of the effort to small base size these steel cases now. The pictures here are just me putting the first coat of lacquer on the steel cases to prevent rust.

2 lrg MTM plastic ammo cans, 1# of TiteGroup and a small grease gun specifically for the AP.… :s0143::s0143::s0143:

They also have a lot of PMC bronze 9mm ammo for $235 per thousand. Get it while you can folks!!!

Are those the 5gal storage totes they have on sale for $4?

If so, can 2 sit side by side on top of a 27gal tote?
 
No loading for me today. Just doing the after the gun show stuff, going to the bank, paying the bills and working on the what ended up being aprox 300 Lb's of brass. Not to worry though I'll be pulling the handle starting tomorrow.
 
Prepped ( sized, trimmed, chamfered necks inside and out, deburred flash holes, cleaned primer pockets) and primed 200 .223 cases. Hoping to load a hundred or two 9mm's this evening.
 
On Friday I loaded up yet another string of pulled 180g 40 S&W with A#2, will it ever end??? :D
I also wet cleaned 600+ deprimed 40 S&W and 300+ .357, I was in a hurry and forgot to deprime them… :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

I have molds for 40 in 175gr and 145gr. Don't you have a Springfield with standard rifling? I'm fixing to cast again when I get some favorable weather. Wanna try a few?
