    I scored 4lbs of Win 231 Saturday also. Been looking for 231 for about 3 months now. Left about 5 lbs on the shelf. Paid $23/lb.

    They had 6 to 8# of Varget last time I was there. Would have gotten some if I had extra money on me. I need Benchmark, Lil Gun and H110 more anyway.

    I'm a titegroup lover for the 124gr 9mm loads. 'Bout 2 cents a shot with a charge of 4.2 gr. Makes for some great 7 dollar a box reloads with some rainier or PD plated bullets(9 or 10 cents ea.). Of course that values my time at zero dollars per hour but you can't put a price on satisfaction.

    Well I worked up my first load based on what I could find online. My Lee book unfortunately doesn't show w231 loads for 124gr plated rn. I found tons of posts with the exact bullets as me using 4.4gr of 231 with an OAL of 1.100". My round measured at a tad over 4.4gr on the .46 hole of my autodisk and 1.01" OAL. One thing I'm not sure of though is whether my taper crimp is too tight, very top of my case tapers down to 0.377". I think I got 3/4s of a turn on the die after seating setup, I slipped as I was setting it up so not sure precisely what it was at (rcbs tc seating die BTW). Will probably just reset the die next time. Probably not going to fire that round since it's my first but would there be any potential worries about it?

    My most recent purchase was 230gn plated RN from X-Treme Bullets and I was pleased with their product. Their prices seem better than Rocky Mountain too.

    I value my reloading time at zero $ per hour too. Its more productive than watching TV.
