What did you do today in the world of reloading?

Got some junk off my loading bench after a remodel of another room.

I think I can actually load on my bench now.

ready to do loads for a ladder test on 224 Valkyrie loads. Picked my bullets and powder charges. Planning to prime some processed cases tonight.

Picked up another 100 Starline .458 SOCOM brass and 100 350gr Hornady soft points. Time for another application of Oink-B-Gone to the ranch.
The 458 is really fun to shoot. 100rds in a bag is a heavy bag. And its fun to see a mag that used to hold 30rds become a 10rd mag.

Picked up a lb of H4831 last week so I loaded up some .270 with 140 grain SST’s, and ran them across the chrono. I loaded right up to about 1 grain below max, and was getting 1/2” groups averaging 2,980 FPS. No pressure signs at all, so I’m gonna load up a few more, working up to the max charge and see if I can keep the groups tight and get a few more FPS.

Why push it? Take what you have and run with it. Just my opinion though, of course.

Because I can never leave well enough alone! And it’s a great excuse to go back to the range! I’m only gonna load up 3 each of 3 different charges.

'Top of the hill, Kerr County!
Today I can't find the battery cover on my electronic powder measuring scale. Duck tape works OK but I'm still looking for the little black plate that covers the batteries! Damn it!
Edit to add: I hurt my knee trying to kick myself in the ass for losin' it!

Finally finished up loading the 50 pieces of 6.5 PRC brass I prepped and loaded the other day. Three different loads with H1000 and two different charges with MagPro, 10 rounds per...gotta get to the range tomorrow to see how the Browning likes them.
