I got a 1k pieces of 380 brass in the mail the other day so I deprimed them all. Just as soon as time permits they'll be taking their turn in the tumbler. They weigh about 8 lbs altogether so it'll have to be done in 2 batches.

Still working on my DDm4V7 6.8 loads picked my best 6 loads from last range session and loaded 5 of each shot them over the chrony day before yesterday, warm, no wind.
Used five SSA manufactured rounds to reset only L-R POI. POA is still dead center and just looking for 5 round groups. Note dime.

Next step, load twenty rounds of 26.0 and 26.4, shoot both as another group of five, take the best group and re-zero 5" high at 100 yards with the remaining 15 rounds. Seems to be coming along.

If you have an iPhone look at using SubMoa for measuring group sizes and poa vs poi. This is just a screenshot of some pistol rounds but you get the idea. Makes measuring / tracking and recording loads a breeze. They have it for Android as well but I can't remember what the name of it is off the top of my head.

Are you telling me that the I-PrisonerHOmiNgdevicE the company dumped on me might not be a completely worthless?

Somehow I bet IT would loose their minds if they downloaded the target info off it...

I haven't done anything in the reloading room since Wednesday. Been in Columbia, MO @ the Bianchi Cup! I normally don't get a tremendous rush from watching other people shoot, but when THOSE guys shoot, it's quite a show.

Uhm, It started with this. Detonated a primer in my Pro 1000 for 45 ACP.



Then I ordered and replaced the shell plate carrier. What a difference. I had been putting off maintaining the 45 ACP press for far too long and it got the best of me. Over 100k rds and thats the first primer det I have ever had. Today I maintain the 10mm and maybe try my hand at some 300 win mag.

Yikes!

It would take a better man than me to not express my surprise and pain with a string of unprintable American expressions and possibly a few previously unheard combinations thereof...

heal up quick!

Was it caused by a small primer 45acp case getting in with the large primer 45acp cases? that is what caused the only primer detonation I have had

Wanted to try something really exotic.

Well I didn't have anything on my "Honey do" list for today, at least not yet. So I spent some time at the reloading bench trying to come up with a powder/caliber/bullet combination that's never been done before.

So I grabbed a couple bags of brand new Starline .38 Spl +P brass, a can of Alliant Unique, and two bags of Remington 110gr JHP bullets. By the way, the bags were new and unopened. Each claimed to have 100 bullets in them but BOTH had 99. While this seems petty, and for me it only meant two bullets, take that shortage times 20,000 bags or however many Remington produces in a run and it comes up with a sizable profit.

Back to the point, I set my Uniflow (as confirmed by my RCBS 505) for 7.0gr. Today I must have hit a sweet spot because my throws were extremely accurate for Unique. After throwing 100 charges, checking every 15th to 25th charge for weight, I began seating the bullets. Setting the seating depth to crimp towards the front edge of the cannelure I ended up with an OAL of 1.438". They will be shot out of my Security-Six so I'm well within the safety zone.

So I've finished running off 200 rounds (used 2 Hornady 110gr JHP to complete the run) and have entered the information into my reloading log. Now I have to find somewhere to hide before the newest edition of the "Honey Do" list comes out.

I just love building a load that probably has never been made before.

Yesterday was pretty good. A cool front sucked up all of the humidity and it wasn't that hot so I went to build up a ladder of .223 ammo, only about 20 rounds which is kind of a pain on the Dillon, especially when it's set up for LP's and has the .45ACP shell plate installed.

I was low on .45 ACP anyway and discovered that I was also low on sized and lubed LSWC's so I warmed up the Star and punched out about 400 bullets, loaded the primer tubes up and loaded 200 of them. That'll hold me for the rest of the time I'm home anyway!

Then I swapped everything and ran off my ladder of 748 behind some 69gr Nosler hpbt's and with any luck I'll get to the range today...
