first loads
« on: April 14, 2010, 04:43:20 pm »
I got my Lee all set up, loaded 10 rounds of .40SW. Drove out to BFE and shot them. Everything went well, I loaded up 100 more, plus I've got 400 more sized and primed ready to go.
Can't wait until I get '06 dies and reload 4 the big boom stick. Future loads will include 9mm and 45acp. I love this handloading stuff!!!!!!!

    THE NORSEMAN

    • To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. - Richard Henry Lee

    Good.  Now, these ones you loaded and shot-

    Group sizes?  Velocity?  Case/powder/primer/slug recipe?  Details man.  We want details.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    As for group sizes, it was just a drive by to see if they function well.
    Mixed brass, 165 grain JHP from Montana bullets, CCI primers and 5.0 grains of IMR 700X.
    Hodgdon site says they are 997 fps. They were snappy on the recoil.
