Not actually today, but during the long Easter weekend:

I readjusted my pro1000 turrets for .38spl and .45Auto, because I had difficulties with the crimps. Seems to be working right again, I've loaded 200 rounds forty-five, without any problems... Except that d*** military brass. I still need to load another 3 to 4 hundred, plus at least 800 round thirty-eight.

I also set up another turret for .38spl for my black powder loads. The inert dummies loaded fine, but I need to make a couple rounds this week to chrony them after the match on weekend, and then I'll need to nano three hundred more soon.

Drilled, ground,chiseled all day (again). Broke through at 16:08. Still not out but progress made. I'm not getting paid for the 22 or so hours I've been on this project.

Got the hole fixed up and ready to resume engine reassembly (oil pump, cam, lifters) at 12:27 today.

I put a calculator to it (dumb move) and figured I missed $1K in lost wages over this broken shop owned tool.

I'll be better mentally soon...maybe.

Back to "What Handgun Reloading...". I stuffed some cast bullets into 20 Speer 9mm cases. I mixed up a new alloy I wanna try in my 9mms (runs 17 BHN) and loaded up some over a charge of W231. We'll see how they shoot in my 3, 9mm pistolas...

No need to delete nuttin'! It's called "Thread Drift" and it happens all the time, no big deal. BTW my "Back to..." post wasn't aimed at nobody or nuttin'... :mrgreen:

Been traveling and just noticed the conversation here. Yeap, my hand at work as I was going to post my reloading that I did for my 303 British here but decided it would not be the right place as this is the Handgun Reloading forum so I started a similar topic in the Rifle Handloading. Then I came back and retitled this topic to avoid any confusion.

Thread drift doesn't bother me, if it really gets out of hand I say something. I simply retitled this topic to avoid any confusion with my new topic.
