    It went into 4 1gal paint cans. I've ALMOST used half of one!

    On the plus side, I have so much pistol and AR ammo loaded and ready to go that I can spend more time refining loads for the long range rifles.

    200 rounds of 9mm and 200 rounds of .45 ACP. I also sized a bunch of boolits.

    I went to the range this morning. I found around an extra 500 pieces of 9mm brass.

    Once I got home I loaded up another 400 rounds of 9mm. I'm going to have to sort and clean brass soon. I've got more than a 2.5 gallon bucket that's full of mixed range brass. I also bought some .308 and .45 brass. Need to get that cleaned.

    One thing I'm really noticing is that the Dillon 650 presses make reloading almost boring. I've got one set up for .45 ACP and one for 9mm. Hit the clean brass with some One-Shot, let it dry and go to town. 9mm sizes so easy that I sometimes wonder if the case actually fed into the press.

    Just got home today, and found that Dillon had been good to me while I was gone. The spent primer cup was missing when I got my 550B, and my primer slide bar wouldn’t hold the anvil tight enough, so I was getting inadequate primer seat depth. I also felt I needed the low primer alarm.

    Major reloading drill...
    Loaded up five rounds of .32 Colt Short with 3F Goex to test fire my #4 Remington Rolling Block.
    Lee Shaver converted a spare block I acquired from rim fire to center fire, and this was the first opportunity I had to shoot it.
    No issues, so now I load up a couple dozen rounds and see if the owner of my local range will let me shoot it indoors at 25 yards to check grouping.

    Update: Called them on Monday (6/10), they were still having issues with online credit card acceptance. Took my order over the phone and I'm now the owner of eight pounds of Retumbo powder. Thanks for the tip!
