I'm in the process of decaping, swaging, sizing, and trimming 2,000 or so .223 cases. I only have around 200 left but I stopped to take a break because I felt like it.
They will still be there whenever I get around to finishing them.
Reloading shouldn't become a chore.
I usually do all my bulk loading between fall and early spring so I can go out and enjoy the summer whenever I can.
I only load for my precision rifle during the summer months.
I use a progressive press with both a case and bullet feeder to speed things up.
