    Picked up some powder (Accurate 1680) to load some subsonic 300 BLK with 212 gr. bullets from Lone Star Reloading in Boerne this weekend. Nice shop, decent prices.

    Trimming, deburing, and chamfering doesn't bother me, it's reaming the military crimp out of the primer pockets I don't like doing.

    Returned my rcbs 308 FL die, ordering the RCBS Competition die with the collar and mic.

    Also the lid on my tumbler melted so I had to swap it out but that was painless, harbor freight too....

    I ordered a Lyman Devastator mould for .45 ACP. Midway is closing them out and I couldn't pass up the deal. They also have some damn good deals on some other molds.

    When it arrives I'll have three .45 ACP hollow point molds.

    Why did you upgrade dies already?

    Have you even loaded a round yet?

    Loaded some test rounds yesterday.
    Looking for a little more speed/distance.

    Powder coated a bunch of lures and jig heads, my reloading space is also my lure building space. I also sized a quart bucket of 9mm bullets. Not sure why I need so many as I only have two 9mm firearms and one of those is for sale.

    Knocked out 100 rounds of 7mm SuperMag for my BF drop block for production class in next months IHMSA match in New Braunfels. For those who don't know, 7mm SuperMag is a .357 Maximum case necked down to hold 7mm rifle bullets. Sort of a rimmed 7TC.

    I've reloaded with the competition dies before and decided I like the design better after extensive reading.
