Looks great Bolts!


I just finished cleaning 2K 9mm brass, waiting for a slow evening. I need to order bullets. 124 gr. Terrible hobby y'all got me into, thanks!

Loaded about 60 rounds of 9mm today. Session was cut short due to having to get a stuck bullet out of the barrel of my SVI. STI DVC is still running like a sewing machine. Got a 2-gun match on Saturday, need to get the AR out the next two days.

I got frustrated, really effing frustrated.
My wife bought me a Lee Auto Breech Lock Pro progressive press for Christmas. Once tuned, I can pump out 350-400rph (faster for pistol). The problem is switching calibers. I cannot see how dies can be returned to a "remembered" position in an ABLP. Every time cartridges are changed, the dies needs to be tuned again.
The best "solution" IMO, is to load everything I have in a particular caliber before switching to another. I will be loading thousands of .300AAC cartridges before I move on to 10mm. I will then load 1000+ before moving on to another cartridge.
I want to clarify that if loading a single caliber, the ABLP is an incredible dollar to performance press. The huge downside is the hour plus and a dozen or so ruined pieces of brass when it comes time to change calibers.

Just ended up there as part of sorting stuff in the garage when I built the bench and installed the progressives. A few will stay there as they are handy for cleaning break open shotgun breeches but the rest will go to the woodshop. Also handy for cleaning around press rams, especially the Big boss II I use for decapping most brass prior to wet tumbling. Cheap and disposable.

What lock rings are you using with your dies? I've found the Hornady split ring the best at being able to just spin the die back into the press it was adjusted for and slight extra bit of torque with a Crescent wrench and have it work exactly as it did last time.

With the LNL AP press I bought extra bushings so I can leave them on the dies for the progressive. I only plan on loading .38spl, .45acp, .45 Colt and .223 plinking ammo on it.

Kinetic pulled 250 40 cal. 200 grain bullets and if that wasn't enough i was bent over a 5 gallon bucket sorting brass until 3 am but i thought id take advantage of the motivation. Done

Pulled M80 147gr in 300 Blackout. ~400 of them.
Next loading is ~600rds of .300 Blackout 220gr subsonics. At that point, I will be out of .300 Blackout projectiles and will move on to another caliber.
