Prepped 100 223 cases. My offset toolhead and trimmer for the Evo finally came, so I am cautiously optimistic this will be the last 223 brass I prep by hand (vs on press).

It's a terrible deal. You can get 1k of 223 projos for like $100, and even Brownells is selling primers cheaper than that when you factor in repeated hazmat.

Nope, just regular TQs. Assume a proper TCCC class might get there, but we only did a few hours of StB.

That is extremely clever, albeit I don't know if it makes sense for 7.62x39. If the 5.45x39 situation ever gets bad enough, I could see resorting to it for that.

Collected up a whole pile of 7.62x39 brass after the AK class today. Gotta figure out if any of it is berdan primed (aka, M67), but looks like I'll have some more brass processing to do soon.
