    Just sized 200 7mm and 100 204.
    Throw them into the wet tumbler with a little citric acid and some dish soap.
    Get things tumbling for a few minutes and then it gets quiet.

    I had to retire 100 pieces of Lapua brass for my 6.5x47L. The primer pockets were so loose that a magazine loaded case lost its primer on Sunday. It dumped Varget in the action and the primer got caught in the magazine. I thought I had a squib until I looked down the barrel and saw nothing. But then saw powder everywhere. I guess 14 cycles with the small rifle primer Lapua brass Is just about enough.

    I ended up firing off the last 50 rounds last night when I was out confirming my zero on that rifle. And plinking with most of them. I dumped them in the used bass bucket. I can just imagine someone seeing all of those shiny pieces of lapua brass and thinking that they've hit the goldmine mother load.

    Doing some short fatties tonight. First I de-capped a bunch of .338LM and threw them in the tumbler. They're on the drying tray until tomorrow.

    Back to the fatties...(btw, that measurement is exactly .010" off the lands of my rifle)



    6.5x47L

    I loaded up a bunch of these specifically for the light show when I'm finally allowed to go back to the range. 125gr bullets ahead of 20gr W296 in .357.
    Well...I was not disappointed...Revolver is a 4" Highway Patrolman.

    I’ve seen ‘varmint’ style bullets under penetrate on wolves. The explosive expansion and fragmentation works better on smaller animals, seem pretty effective on coyote. I picked up some 60 grain Sierra cup and cores for my 22-250 should I ever need a sturdier bullet.
