Just got 100 new 30-40 cases from Midway and loaded them for fire-forming in my 31-40AI. 174gr Hornady .312 Interlocks and 45gr of H380. After fire-forming will reload them with 50gr of H380. About the same ballistics as a 30-06 with 180gr bullets.
Bear season is here and the un-fire formed load (which is pretty much a factory 30-40 Krag load) is just fine for bruins. Now, if I can find a bear...

The 'what are you reloading today?' thread

Quote:
Maybe someone is loading the same oddball caliber you are!
I doubt it._

Trimming some old 38-55 brass down to fit my 32-40. "I hate trimming!!" But I'm just to cheap to go out and buy new 32-40 brass. I'll let someone else go out and spur the economy today._

Playing with some 9mm today. Speer 125 gr LRN motivated by some Unique.

Lyman's 49th Edition has things starting an an anemic 4.5 grains, Speer #14 says 5.2 grains to start. Will probably split the difference and see where things land. My Hi Power short stroked on a couple of the rounds. The PF9 seemed kind of weak compared to recoil from factory loads.

I'll probably have to go a little hotter for my Norinco Uzi knock off.

Since it's pouring rain here, tonight I'll be loading up a couple of hundred rounds of .38-40 for great-grandpa's Colt Lightning rifle. 128 years old and shoots like a champ. 35 grains of Sheutzen 3F black powder with a 170 grain bullet cast from wheel weights.

Mmmm...smokey!

New to Reloading - 327 Fed Mag Today

I love my Taurus M327 revolver, and 327 Federal Magnum ammo is pricey. So, I just got in all of my stuff, including Dillon 550B, and I'm doing my first few rounds today. Will test fire tomorrow. I'll come back here and let you know if I learned it all well, including powder measure, at least I will if all of my fingers are still attached.
