Yesterday was a productive one.
« on: March 16, 2009, 08:21:38 am »
Wasn't online yesterday. I slept in, went to a big late breakfast.  Got the house ship shape by noon, then spent the rest of the day catching up some things in the loading room with good results:

A 50 cal can full of 357 mag(approx. 1500) all sized and polished, 500 rounds of 38 special sized, polished and primed, couple hundred 30-06 sized, trimmed and polished.  Even found about 500 30-30 cases that are ready to load I had forgotten about.

One drawback to the Dillon 650-  The primer catch system isn't 100 percent.  I've got to get the shop vac out of the garage, as there are spent primers all over the floor.   

I got more done reloading wise yesterday than I've accomplished in the last three months combined.  Next weekend I'll work on loading the brass I prepped yesterday.

    I'm jealous.  Wish I had  a Dillon 650.

    Sounds like a good day.  I had a pretty good one my self today, not related to reloading, but I got my old car back that I sold to my dad.  A thirdgen camaro with a very stout small block.  Back to the topic though, there really isnt a bad day at the reloading bench, you know?

    If you have property we can shoot on, and live less than 200 miles from me, I'd seriously consider letting you "help" empty them again, as long as I can empty a like quantity of yours.

    How's that.
