    Oooo...just found another 21 cases I can load. Ten of 6.5CM & eleven of .338LM. After these, I will have nothing more to load. (903 total rounds)

    They're in the wet tumbler until 11am. Then, annealing, sizing, trimming, priming, charging, and seating. Sounds like a lot, huh? If I quick dry the brass, I'll be done early this afternoon.

    Solitude sucks.

    But I am coming up with some more photo ideas. Stay tuned.

    How are you feeling is the important question.

    Better today. My cough is still there, but less than yesterday. Sore throat is better. Still pretty achey.

    Very impatiently waiting for my test result. From the swab and the X-ray.

    900 cases? TOTAL? Are you new to this?

    I don't think there is a caliber I own that I don't have more than 900 cases for. If my 9mm or 45 stocks dropped below 900 cases, I'd feel naked. I have so many 9mm cases I don't know what to do with them all. Gave a buddy a 12 pound bag of cases the other day and that barely ate into my backup supply.

    You had better open up every box of projectiles you have Andy and cough all over them and get em into the freezer. You never know when 'plague bullets' will come in handy !

    Umm....I don't thing 9mm or even .45ACP are in the same league as precision rifle ammo. I can bulk load pistol calibers too. But even doing the .338LM involves a lot more precision steps then pistol calibers. That said, I also have 1800 rounds of factory 9mm in the safe. Lots of target shotgun loads (500+) and around 100 slugs.

    I think I'm ready for the apocalypse.

    btw, I just found out my tests came back negative!

    Good to hear (about your tests, not your lack of buckshot)

    I have about 1200+ 308W cases. Maybe 1500 300 BLK cases, several thousand 223 Rem cases, and at least 500+ 6BR cases etc. Cannot imagine only have 100 cases for any caliber. That is a starter pack.

    ...well, maybe not the magnum case.
