Purdy!
There's something about the look of the Hornady orange-tip SPBT stuck in the mouth of a shiny newly loaded casing. Oof, love 'em!
Are those Sierra MKs on the right?

How's your cough today? :D
We need range report. With pictures of marked-up targets.
Left are 168gr Amax and right is Hornady Match BTHP 168gr

Shameless plug for results: https://www.texasguntalk.com/threads/range-day-10-21-21.108400/

Loaded some 120 grain VMAX's over four different charges of Benchmark for a new-to-me TC Contender in 7-30 Waters.

Fine tuning some 30.06 loads using Superformance powder. Hornady book has max load at 61.4 grains. Groups were just starting to really tighten up at 61 grains, which is where I stopped. No pressure signs at all. Gonna go back Monday and try some at 61.4, 61.7, and 62, and see how they look.

I'm in the process (slowly) of inventorying all my RCBS loading equipment. When I get it done, I'm going to put it up for sale here. It will take me a few weeks (two or three) but it will be inexpensive compared to the new stuff on the market. I don't shoot much or reload much anymore.

I just looked, and realized how many projectiles in the 115, 124, and 158gr variety I am going to be moving with... not to mention the 95-100gr, and the 147gr odds and ends... AND 40, 55, 62, and 75 grainers...

109lbs, just for my last Acme order last year, then the X-treme's I got on a Veteran's Day sale a few years back...
OMFG, my back is going to HATE me, ALMOST as much as the USPS gal does!!!

Met a fellow TGTer this morning and gave him some components. Then came home and finished sizing 1150 9mm. Tonigh I'll prime half and get the press setup for a run of SD rounds.

Broke my 338 federal sizing die this week.

Sizing 308 cases to 338 federal. It takes a bit more effort with the expander, well a berdan case snuck it's way into my once fired brass. Snapped the depriving pin and bent the stud the expander screws onto.

New stem ordered from RCBS cost me $18 shipped

Cases came out of the corn cob media looking beautiful. Read somewhere here that used dryer sheets keep the dust down and help with the shine. I've also started squirting a little goof off into the vibrator before the lid goes on.

Switch to wet tumbling and you'll never look back.
