I will when I have time. Right now I'm working two jobs besides helping a family member get thru a struggle. I'm reloading in the evening when I get home one or two steps at a time. That's why it's taking so long. I don't reload if I'm worn out or exhausted. Hence my little tribal group! But I'll let you know when I do get time.

Yes, taking care of others is good.
Just don't forget to take care of yourself too.
You need balance.
What, Me Worry?

Yes sir! Especially reloading. It just seems to be a season of business right now, hopefully it'll be over by summer. Balance, we all need it

By "balance" I meant to go out and shoot something....for stress relief
It's high on my list of things to do on a regular basis.
It's therapeutic..

Yeah, mines would to be out in the woods! Something about being out in nature is relaxing and soothing. I'm long over due to shoot another pig. Lanai won't be till October.

first time loading these projectiles.  ACME bullet, 200 grain RNFP, Trailboss
I'd rather shoot Trailboss loads out of this 4 5/8" barrel SBH, or just not H110
this was my 1st 44mag revolver that I bought several years ago. grips are from ebay Arizona Custom grips

AMERC 45acp brass
I read about reloaders on the mainland tossing out AMERC headstamp brass.
My coworker found some at the range here and picked them up.
They appear to be perfectly normal but when you reload them, they don't chamber.
Top photo is WCC brass which was reloaded about 3 times.
Bottom photo is an AMERC once-fired shell.
The load was a 230 gr. polymer coated round nose.

It seems like the web portion is bloated and an ordinary (dillon) sizer die can't squeeze it down.
Perhaps a LEE FCD would bring it back down but I have not tried it yet.
The gauge pictured here is a MIDWAY chamber gauge.
I suspect for most guns, it will work ok. Normal pistol barrels aren't cut so tight.
What, Me Worry?
