    Thanks guys! Currently in Wilmington, NC for the weekend. Got a place on the river, right behind the USS North Carolina.

    The Armory is in mourning.

    Wow....I really don't know what to say. I never met Jeff in person, but I am so sad to hear this. I will be praying for his family and everyone here. RIP G (and Mrs. G).

    Global Warming My Azz !!!

    That's not how it works. The cooling is because of the warming and the warming is because of the cooling. Get with the program maaaaan...

    It's absolutely BS when...

    Yeah....you can't do that. But it would be a funny idea.

    Prioritizing gun funds

    That's the crux of the issue isn't it? Funds. This year I want to focus on building my reserves of ammo (5.56, 9mm, 300blk) by purchasing (5.56) or reloading (9, .357, 300blk). I also want to build the reserves of reloading components (brass, primers, bullets, etc). I also want to finish my CZ Scorpion build and my 11.5 AR. Additionally I got the bug to build a few cheap rifles (for about $1200 I can get two PSA 10.5" kits, two Sig Romeo 5's, two Anderson lowers, two CMC flat triggers).

    Power Pistol

    Also, I have heard a lot of great things about TItegroup. I think I'll pick up a 1lb bottle just to work load data so I have it on hand. That way I can stock multiple powders. I mostly only load 9mm for handgun, though .357 mag will be coming shortly.

    Power Pistol

    I bought a pound of PP and Unique. Used up the PP and had no issues. I will agree it requires a higher charge, fills up a 9mm case about 3/4s of the way with the charge I was using, but I always knew I had a good charge at a glance and used a powder cop die. It show relatively clean as well. I'm now using Unique and it works well also. I have quite a bit more of it right now, an 8lb jug in addition to the 1lb bottle I bought originally, plus a 15lb keg I got from my step-FIL. Its about 30 years old, but looks good (will test) and from all my research Unique has been the same forever. My 9mm load for PP was: 115gr lead cast bullet 6.5g PP CCI SPP OAL - 1.121-1.124

    I've never used it. I'll check it out.

    Yeah, 9mm. Was using 6gr of Unique.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Well lets try this again since I can't edit the last one. Tested out a new load for 6gr of Unique behind a 115gr round. So Alliant's website listed 6.3gr, I backed it down to 6gr and that was still too much. Think I'll load some to 5.5gr and see how they run.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Went through and did some labeling and organizing of my 9mm ammo. Also loaded some rounds with Unique to take to the range this weekend. Alliant's load data says 6.3gr, I started with 6gr, but damn it almost overflows the case. Power Pistol only hit 3/4s so as the cases progressed, the little jerk as the detents go into the hole never bothered the powder. Now it spills out. I'll have to figure out how to remedy that. Otherwise, all good to go.

    Powder coating lead bullets

    Look at Gallant Bullets. I have some 300blk 165gr and 220gr from them. Quality is good and the price is right. I think their 9 is $66/1k, which is like $6 more per 1k than what I have found uncoated for. Also, Ammoseek.com has a section for reloading components that is very handy as well. And yeah, just let me know. I still have several thousand to do, so its no problem at all to get yours done. Just shoot me a message if you want to go that route.

    .300 BO brass jig

    I use this one. Same concept as the SD it looks like. I've only tested it. Haven't started running large volume yet. https://www.zepreloading.com/store/p3/300_AAC_Blackout_case_cutting_jig.html

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Have perfected (for my needs), my bullet coating. Got 800 rounds loaded over Monday and Tuesday. Now out of Power Pistol, so I have some loads to play with for the Unique I have on hand. Picked up a sleeve (damn Cabelas) of small rifle primers to start loading some test 300blk ammo, but really can't do that until I get a chrono. For now, just focusing on reloading 9mm.
