Congratulations! It's sure a great way to cleanse the mind and focus on something good for a change. If only there were a few more hours in the day.

This new set up is much nicer than my old one. My old bench measured 18" x 36", this new one is 24" x 48". Much more room. I need to order a few replacement parts for my tumbler, but I can reload without tumbling if I have to. I just prefer to load clean brass.
I need to order some bullets for my Arisaka, I'd really like to get that old warhorse dialed in.

I've not used the 4895 much, I bought it awhile back for loading jacketed rounds in my 45-70. I plan on using it for my 7.7 Jap and eventually, my Mosin.
What do you use it for?

Nice feeling to be able to make your own ammo(especially these days). Wish I could make some 22rf.

He has some .312" bullets but they're 123 gr, more suitable to the 7.62x39. For the 7.7 Jap and the 7.62x54R I'm going to need at least 150 gr, maybe even heavier than that.
Thanks for the link though.
