What did you do today in the world of reloading?

Switch to wet tumbling and you'll never look back.

Oh I've been looking at it for some time.

One day I will, probably the day my harbor freight cleaner dies.

Casting bullets
Wet tumbling
And shotshell reloading

All on my to learn list.

Broke my 338 federal sizing die this week.

Sizing 308 cases to 338 federal. It takes a bit more effort with the expander, well a berdan case snuck it's way into my once fired brass. Snapped the depriving pin and bent the stud the expander screws onto.

New stem ordered from RCBS cost me $18 shipped

Cases came out of the corn cob media looking beautiful. Read somewhere here that used dryer sheets keep the dust down and help with the shine. I've also started squirting a little goof off into the vibrator before the lid goes on.

Strips of used dryer sheet seem to make the media last longer.

When that day gets here look me up!

Today, for the first time in a couple months I went to the shed and turned the light on.

I separated some 38spec/357, sized some primed 357 then the fun started.

I figured I'd trim some 38spec cases with my trimpro drill powered trimmer. The shaft began to wobble so I disconnected it and the cord cleared the bench next to it!

Now I just need to find the bolt that attaches the hand crank to the cutter and I'll be set.

Yesterday I spent some me time in the shed: primed & belled 50 38spec cases since I have almost 150 gifted powder coated bullets on the floor.
Called RCBS for parts, left number for a callback but when it came it was listed as spam so I continued power washing my driveway. Called again but no callback.

I’ll start again in an hour.
