    Oh yeah. But they were undersized cast bullets, so they just went back in the pot to make some more.

    it turns out that a factory crimp die is no good for cast bullets. They were sized to .401, the...

    I had to pull about 400 pistol rounds because the bullets were undersized. I quickly realized the hammer wasn’t the way to go, so I rigged up a spacer and used some lineman’s pliers and pulled them...

    I think I’m at 23.5gr, same bullet and powder. I just used 69gr load data for those bullets and H335 for the powder load data, it seems to be pretty close.

    But as stated, this powder is notorious...

    My eldest son is home on leave, so I haven't done much of anything at all on the bench. I did cast a bunch of bullets for 40s&w and subsonic 300aac, but haven't gotten around to powder coating them...

    I had a good load at 43.8gr, but it doesn’t group right after threading the barrel and adding a brake. It’s a little better with the suppressor, but way off without. I need to get to the range to get...

    I think I remember reading somewhere that that’s what they use in the M118LR round with a 175gr bullet.

    I just got my M&P40 slide back from optic milling. I think it's pretty much done, now I have to get a good reliable load worked up for it.

    I’ve decided to trim down some of my future plans, so my loss is your gain. All brass is either range pickup or acquired from trades. Pics available upon request.

    Yeah, it’ll be decently over the sound barrier with that load, but it’s a good starting point to work down from.

    And an AR won’t really like that bullet profile very well, so it’s good that it’s...

    I tumble wet and dry, depending on batch size and how dirty the brass is.

    For dry tumble (small lots of semi clean brass) I use corn cob and a bit of nu-finish. For wet tumble (bigger lots or very...
