    made another 250+ cast and hi-tek coated 9mm 125gr. I don't really bother to count anymore. Just keep filling the bucket. Is that a good thing?
  9. .224 Valkyrie

    I've loaded up mostly 75gr projos (Hornady HPBT) because i can use them in 556 also, but i havent been able to give the 75gr amax a test run yet. Those are too long for 556 so thats my only use.

    Added an Armanov roller bearing to the indexer on the XL650 and also replaced the indexer spring that broke and flew off the other day. I can't appreciate nor recommend enough that if you don't have the Dillon spare parts kit for your press, you need it. Absolutely need it.

    try getting your first LTC in hand 3 weeks after Newtown (had FID forever before that). First pistol rounds i ever shot were my hand loads because i couldn't find anything. had it beat in to me early that there's no such thing as too much for components.

    obviously trust your own research the most. is 2400 a ball powder? i'm not familiar but via gun shop folklore i learned that truthfully magnum primers help with ball powders. (although there's still some blue dot flying out in one of my 357mag recipes). If its not the powder and you're sure...

  18. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    made some 165gr loads in 400 corbon flavor last night. finally found a good use for all that stupid small primer 45acp. i find myself loading more than shooting lately (3 kids, stuck to house mostly). although my oldest is going to try out the 22 this summer after some classroom teaching...
