Last weekend I made 1.2k 9mm and this weekend I made 700 .38sp. Also got in a WFT for .223 and started making those, though the volume will be much, much lower than the rest.

Started reloading with IMR3031 again in .223 since I came into a large amount of it.

It really sucks in my RCBS thrower. Any tips?

It's a uniflow, the 3031 being a stick powder sometimes gets.... stuck when trying to throw, and it's often +-0.02 from the expected charge.

Today I'm trying to get some 9mm Luger cranked out. So far, 859 rounds and it's going well.

So what dirty little secret is this beautiful ammo hiding?

Spoiler: show
The primer pockets are filthy!

And it doesn't matter, and I don't even care. :rockout:

As long as the flash holes are open and new primers fit, who cares if your junk is dirty? :bigsmile: icon_eek

Today I reloaded 1,717 rounds of 9mm . . . a personal daily record for me, by a pretty good stretch. I was on a mission to load up all of the 115-grain bullets I had on hand, which I did, and then I did 500 147-grain loads as well.

Along the way, I made some significant discoveries that will surely rock the world of reloading. icon_eek

Important Discovery #1
These little bastard ZVS headstamp brass won't fit in the Hornady LNL shellplate, so I recycled a pretty good pile of them. :cussing:

Image

Important Discovery #2

Today I invented the 9mm Belted Magnum!

I don't know what the issue was with that one, but it sure didn't want to get all the way into the sizing die . . . .

I can confirm that the 50gr Zmax bullets will cause prairie dogs to fly into the air in multiple pieces. I expect yours will do the same. thumbsup

I just de-primed 200 rounds of .308. First time ever.

I thought the primers were supposed to go into the little black thing. Instead they go everywhere.

Lee press? Do you have the primer installer pusher thingy in there?
