Well it's been a good reloading weekend here in the Philly 'burbs. I put up 800 .38 Special and 1K of .45 ACP in the old tried and true competition loads. Looked over the supplies and decided to give Sierra 69 BTHP Match one last try in the DPMS HBAR... So I put up 40 pieces in 4 different loadings. Everybody tells me those Sierra 69's are the best thing ever in .223, but I can't find a load that shoots. Then it was off to the shed to heat up the lead pot. Cast up 7 pounds of Lee C309-150F and a pound and a half of Lee C309-113F. I lubed up a few of the 150's with some new Ballisticast hard lube I picked up recently and loaded up 80 pieces in 4 different loadings 1/2 with the new Ballisticast and 1/2 with my old standard Lee liquid Alox for some head to head testing in the 30AS. Yep, all in all a pretty good effort. Near 2K added to the stores and a few cast projectiles for future loading.

Anyone else been busy?

I am in continuous production. I usually (through Spring) shoot about 3to 400 rounds a weekend. Use 357, 45colt, 30-30, 45-70. Now added 444 and 375. I have about 3000 bullets made from cast this Winter and have bought that many in jacketed. Should keep me busy for awhile. I probably have 2000 loaded now and many more to come.

I got a wild hair last week (plus a Federal refund) and dropped a fast $300 on bullets, now all I have to do is find time to load all the 38 and 40 brass. Then there's my .223, my 7.7 Jap, I pick up a new 44 mag today, got a new 30-30 last week, looks like I'll be busy for awhile. Too bad I can't reload at work. With 40 hours a week to load ammo, I'd be caught up in a few weeks! :shock:
