jmorris, you make some cool stuff.

the most dangerous way to do it even though the guy thinks its fast
I counted up the time it took to load, cut and dump to be 40 seconds for 10 cases.
(4 seconds per case is about what I was doing it w/ the HF cutter)

For us small time folks, the HF cutter and the ebay/amazon case jig is pretty widely used.

Every journey starts with one step.

Looking good. I'm curious to see what your results are.

Thank you, the fellow that taught me a lot of what I know was a machinist on an aircraft carrier is WWII, he had a unique ability to make what he needed from what he had and that followed my train of thought as well. He only had 9 1/2 fingers when we met because he lost 1/2 of one making shelves for his wife on a table saw. I took from that, you could spend your life around equipment that can rip your arm off and beat you with it but if you become complacent, even little things can hurt you.

I haven't reloaded a round in over a month. Why? Because it's been freezing cold in my garage.

Besides, during the spring and summer I'm like the ant in the fable. I reload my firearm food during the reloading season. By fall's harvest I'm well stocked with plenty of firearm food to see me through the winter...

Hmm, the opposite of me in a number of ways. My reloading bench is in the insulated part of my house, so during the months where the temperature is pleasant I am outdoors, and during the cold/rainy times I restock my inventory.

His wife won't let him put it in the house. He needs to do what I did, when I moved mine upstairs my wife threw a half a fit so I slapped her around until she saw it my way.
Then I woke up.
But actually mines upstairs in a spare bedroom so all is warm.

My grandfather was a machinist at the Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard for 45 yrs. I know what you mean about being able to make what you needed to get the job done from the tools and supplies available. He lived his life that way. He was an avid reloader too.

Also I know what you mean about being complacent. I lost a finger 12yrs ago. Im lucky I didn't loose my whole hand. Anytime I use a saw or router I remind myself I can just as easily cut off another one.

Just a friendly reminder. Be careful out there.

I ordered 1000 147gr 9mm bullets and 50 .40 cal bullets. They should be here Saturday, so I can go shoot some on Monday. The .40s are 180gr and 200gr hardcast lead. I'm going to crono them and compare the 200s to the Double-Tap 200s I got a few years ago. Those Double-Tap bullets were $$$, hopefully the Badman Bullets will be better.

If you are really paranoid, you can get anti static wrist bands for $0.99. Some computer components even include one.

Did initial prep work on some 357 Sig and 9mm cases. Setup my powder hoppers for both. I'm hoping to load in the morning.

Loaded 98 rounds of competition 5.56 w/Nosler 69g HPBT projectiles. I measured COAL and about 80% were 2.259"-2.260" Hopefully I'll get some practice time on Sunday.

Mrs. J chokes on Hoppes fumes. Yeah, I'm fixin' to bring my reloading gear into the house! I'll get right on that! Who knows what those noxious fumes might do to four beagles and a basset!

But... I kinda wanna continue to have peace and harmony in my life. So maybe I'll keep on keeping on...

Give it some time for you to get your handle motion technique to a point that it is consistent.
