Took a couple days but I got 500 rounds of 9mm cranked out. Put a hornady bullet feeder on the Dillon 550 and it makes things go quick. Especially since my son likes to fill the empty bullet tubes.

I'm fiddling with the idea of making a roller handle for my Lee APP press. The "T" handle is ok, but I've got a bunch of skate bearings from when I pulled the wheels off of my kids' roller blades when they phased out of them in their teen years. I figure that making a viable roller handle wouldn't be that difficult. If I get it done, I'll post the results.

I won't put too much time and effort into it though - if I can't get it mostly made with stuff I have on hand here at the house, I'll just order the roller handle from Inline fabrication.

Ordered another inline fab 48” rail for my gun room. I have one with some holders,m and really like it. Well I managed to score the extra lee class turrets I needed so I can have all my die sets, setup in one. Don’t have a place to put all the turrets though. So a 48” rail, three tool head racks and a tray are on the way to solve that little issue.

Fortunately I have 9’ ceilings in my basement as it allows me to have the space to still put some full height cabinets above my reloading bench/wall rails and fit it all. I am tall, but I’ll likely need a stool to reach the top shelves, but at least it is more storage and the bottom couple of shelves would be reachable.

You'll love it. This is exactly what I did to fix the clutter from my Lee turret press. Works really well! I like how it has a little place to store shell holders, too. I need to get the hangers for 650 toolheads...

I discovered that with 100gr bullets, the old Swede M96 6.5x55 can be loaded to the same velocities as a 6.5CM.
I'm going to chrono some rounds at AGC tomorrow and it is possible ToolAA and Fidelity will get to meet Bubba in a few weeks.
