Went shooting…

Went shooting. Loaded 5 rounds for a 100 yard shot. Pulled the trigger one time. Dropped the mag and put the gun away. It just wasn’t going to get better than this. 308 FTW

Finally upgrade the Mech Jr to a Dillon SL900

After all these years with a rinky dinky Texan press, I finally upgraded to a Mech Jr press only to decide that wasn’t enuf. Today I stumbled across a deal and came home with a Dillon SL900 12 gauge reloading press. WOW! what a machine, its the rough equivalent of my Super1050, but for shotgun shells. Once tuned up, this thing will be able to make them faster than I could shoot them.

Guess this means the 870 and I will need to spend some time together.
