    Made it to an indoor range with a few work guys yesterday. Shot a couple nice guns and picked up a lot of brass. Brought along the 450 to test out a load for accuracy and it was dead on. In fact, it was so dead on that the first shot with new flip up sights that haven't even been adjusted hit dead center of my aim point, even at a very short range. I put 3 rounds through 1 hole. And boy did it light up the room!!!

    I'm now a legend with the guys at work for taking the great fire breathing dragon that kicks like an elephant with 3 rounds in 1 hole. And to top it off I found my load for the 450

    I went out and cast another 15 lbs or so of the Lyman 452630. One more batch today and I should be set for a couple of months.

    Did another 16 lbs of the Lyman 452630 and then did some Saeco #115 9mm bullets.

    I also started coating all the 452630 bullets.

    Boy, this is a sweet load. Light recoil, and pretty accurate. As accurate as I could be without optics and shooting offhand, five round groups were all within 4 inches. This I like! Now, Ill put a scope on it and see what I can do at 200 yards

    Been there, glad you got through them. Slower powder and you will be happier I think.

    Processed 9 brass, had a good opening run on 1 processor until a stupid A-USA casing came through and left an anvil in the pocket. I hate that brass and I had almost 15k without a stoppage. After that I was hitting one every 2-3k on both processors. Sigh...
