    You should really invest in the 6 cavity Lee mold. You can really crank them out with that one.

    Is this the new bolt action that takes the mini-30 magazines? Those looked really cool.

    EDIT: also, too bad I just sold all my 7.62 brass and stuff if I find anymore I'll let you know.

    I bought some powder from Bullets.com and a new mold from NOE. Loaded up 300 10mm and 400 .45 AP yesterday.

    Aluminum is light and if you blow on it, you can force it to fall off. For some reason it won't let me post movies but it is amazing what a little air will do.

    Discovered a few 9mm that enjoyed a short stint as 40S&W while sorting brass barrels today. Took a while for the shooter to notice it seems, looks like most of a magazine. 13861c776f9f8dad75269204b41a21a4.jpg

    Ordered 100 pieces of Lapua 6.5Creedmoor brass and a box of 143gn ELDX projectile. Also a set of Redding Premium Series dies.

    I’m gonna drink the Creedmoor kool aid. We’ll see how it tastes

    Well shit... The other Roger started on about how awesome the Ruger American was so I started looking it up. Before long I decided I was dead set on the Ruger RPR. Found a 6.5 for under $950. My current stash cash is only about $750.

    Now I could probably swing the extra $200 and get the RPR.... But I can't afford a $500 scope for the damn thing even if I do buy it. To top it off I had an offer to buy back my old AK, with mags, ammo, and sight for $700. I'm not sure I want the AK again though as I dont really want to to buy all the x39 reloading crap again, yet with the 6.5 I'll have to buy new stuff anyways.

    So, from a strictly budget standpoint, I'm going to hold off until I can get a rifle, dies, and a scope all together. Reloading has greatly influenced my rifle buying habits.

    I drank it recently. Got dies, brass and powder before the rifle showed up. So far, I've only shot a couple of boxes of factory ammo through it, but tonight I finished loading up about 80 140g matchking rounds. I'll burn through those this weekend trying to 'splode some prairie dogs. So far, I like it. By Monday, I'll really know how I feel.

    Loaded up a bunch of 223 match rounds the other day.

    Put my recent bullet order away. Running out of room. Good problem to have.

    Also got my swager parts in so that is ready to go.

    Looking at all the 223 range brass I have makes me feel the to order some kind of fancy trimmer.
