Thanks for the offer, but I got a good amount of 38 spl brass at the moment to keep up with my casts and primer supply. I'll be sure to save you those 10mm/6.5 swede/grendel cases i come across and bring them your way next time we meet.

Spent some time gauging the 5.56 rounds I had made. Five rejects out of about five hundred, not too bad.

Shot 60 rounds of .500 S&W magnum yesterday. Just finished up tumbling brass and in the process of resizing and punching out primers.

Why did you reject them? Just wondering if it was the same thing that was causing you to pull them. I've improved my process over the years, but it bugs me when my loads don't pass plunk tests or round checker. The biggest PIAs I have for rejects are 9mm cast loads.

Didn't go into the gauge all the way. Jury's out on whether I'll bother to pull them, they're in the "ammo ****ups" bag atm.

Now, I had a separate thing where I had a much higher percentage of 300AAC subs fail a gauge, but I feel fairly confident that was an issue with me not doing neck expansion first. Thankfully, that was a small test batch, so not too much of a loss.

In the last 24 hours I loaded 200 rounds of .45 ACP, 20 rounds of 7.62x54R in 4 different charges for a grouping test on my M-44, and prepped all of my brass from the last range trip.

I didn't do anything because I haven't started that craft but would like to learn.

Took a break from my prepped bag of 357sig, and primered up the 40 458socom brass that's been accumulating from range trips. Just ordered
500 350gr boolits from Berrys to allow me to keep shooting during the scamdemic..
