Getting ready to load and test some 150 E-Tip bullets from Nosler, using RL19. They send the bullets packed with a little yellow piece of paper saying start at min. powder weights and don't go over mid level loads, also this bullet needs to be seated .050 to .090 off lands.
I hope this ain't another goose chase, I can't afford those!!

Today, I did another 20 rounds of 223.

Hornady 55 grain FMJ, 25.3 grains H4895, CCI 400 primer and Remington brass.

I consistently get 2" groups at 100 yards with my Mini-14, using this load.

I've got plenty now for my summer shooting, about 400 rounds of 223 loaded up, ready to go.

Got the day off because of the rain and thawing yesterday. The ground is an inch of slick mud atop frozen. So we are done until it freezes back up.

Got the TiteGroup out and starting at 4.1 going to put in some 115 FMJ to 9mm Brass.

I am breaking out my old cronograph and if I can get it working I am going to crono some of my 9mm Red Dot loads. I also found some '70s State Police issued Winchester 9mm in the cabinet and 5 of them are going through the crono as well. If there is time the 4.1 grain TiteGroup is going through.

Also slow cooking a pork shoulder in BBQ sauce.

JHLL, My rifle loves that load, however I use a 130 grain Accubond, and a Barnes TTSX in 130 grain, they shoot almost identical......

.380 ACP. With some 20 year old Red Dot. Reloading .380 is a bargain compared to factory ammo prices, but seating the bullets is not as easy as 9mm on my machine. 50 should be enough for today.

Re: The 'what are you reloading today?' thread

Loaded some 9mm Friday night with 124 RN Ranieir, Tula Small Pistol primers, and hogdon titegroup. This was my first reload ever so did 50 total, 10 at 3.8, 3.9, 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2. All on a Lee classic turret press. Shot them today and had no problems. Really liked the way the 3.8 and 3.9 shot. I think I am addicted to reloading now...
