    Hey folks, just thought I`d start a fun thread here. As the title says, what did you do in the reloading room today? I`ll start!! While I did nothing today...last weekend I finished up another batch of 150 each of 9MM and 45ACP. I`ve now loaded about 1000 since the weekend of Jan 3rd. All of this has been done on a Rockchucker single stage in my ccccoooolllldddd shop.

    Didn't actually get any loading done today, but I did change out the media in my tumbler and got 500 9mm cases cleaned. I also got 200 resized and deprimed. Probably more next weekend.

    Deprimed some .44 special, .45 ACP, and .44 mag cases to get them ready for the wet rotary tumbler with stainless steel media. Waiting on a load of 45 Colt to arrive I got in a brass swap before I run them.

    Cleaned, resized, and deprimed another 300 yesterday, and then primed those 300 this morning after church. I was kindly reminded that I had other responsibilities for the rest of today :)

    Put another 500 or so .45 ACP cases through the wet rotary tumbler. They are drying now so I can get to resizing and sorting them all by headstamp.

    Crimped 50 rounds of 10mm that I forgot to do and realized that fact after driving 30 minutes to the range. Oh well, I guess that's a product of geezerism.

    Load 50-rounds of .308 for my Sake Scout.

    Tomorrow, it will be 60-rounds of 25-06. The temp will be 70F Monday, so I will be at the range.

    Been handloading rifle and shotgun for over 25 years. Still learning, tweaking, refining. Its both an art and a science.

    Youll get out of it what you put into it.

    What are you wanting to handload?

    My neighbor asked if I reloaded .45ACP, & also. .223 for his new to him Bushmaster AR.

    MY response was that I trade Ammo for empty brass. Think about it... My time , my components, I smiled and told him that I would give him a great deal on his choice of my finished efforts.
    I think he was the third person that had thoughts about getting my handloads for nothing or nearly free to them. LOL.

    I just load for 12 different calibers... .223 /5.56 OF which I have two guns.
    Two odd ball wildcats , 7mm. TCU. .375 JDJ Lots of powder for the mentioned above gun food.

    Primers are running mighty low. Any body else fretting over their dwindling , lack of new primers ?
