Loaded 700 rounds of 9mm.

Got a nice surprise too. The box of 1000 bullets came with 1264 actual bullets. Iím guessing their counting scale is off.

Going to bring my cost down to 0.093 per round.

Hopefully Iíll finish up these 464 and Plus another 250 HD rounds and some 147gr hard cast tomorrow.

Not really my loading bench but I've been making my way through a bunch of scrap lead.

Thatís the scrap you got or after you cleaned it up and put it into your molds?

Seems like you are ready to charma some lead


I started to pull down some Iranian 8mm I recently purchased. Just for grins I ran about 20 of the only primed cases through my Persian Mauser. Many had a strong pop but a few had a weak fizz.

I plan to save the bullets and powder and load into saved PPU cases and new rifle primers. The bad thing about the pulled bullets is that they had a really heavy crimp on them.

That's after cleaning, melting and pouring it into molds.

Some of it is wheel weights and some is re-claimed range lead.

Loaded up 600 9mm Luger and the last of my 9 x 18mm Makarov cases. Used my new impact puller to take apart and recycle the bullets from some problem rounds. It worked surprisingly well and since I only had a few, it was all I needed. If you have a large lot to do, I recommend getting a setup for your press.

just remember that after that, you have to then double up on how much pure lead you put in!
