I'm old, and I've been shooting and reloading since I was about 7.
I started depriming and sizing brass for my father with a RCBS rock chucker press (which I still have) have now primarily use a Dillon 1050, and several Dillon 550b(s)

I have been a shooter/member of IDPA and IPSC, though I'm not current, and I have not been to a competition in quite some time.

Lately I've been into shot shell reloading, and trap shooting.

Delivery from “The Creek”

One of the great things about the Knob creek shoot, after the amazing collections of rare and unusual military hardware, is the SHOPPING! People from all over the US bring an amazing bunch of things for the flea market area. One of my bring backs this time is a this can of M1Carbine 110grain projectiles. No, I was unable to attend, luckily I had a proxy!

Pyrex glass powder hopper

Just got this in today. Same capacity, this is good old pyrex glass, which will handle the chemicals in powder that turn the factory hopper into dark and cracked plastic.

Got this from http://wardlance.com/dillon.html Custom deflector and turned alum lid. Nice job overall!

110K Primers

Placed a new primer order, Price break was at 100K. 110K Primers isnt as impressive as I thought it might be. This should last a couple months…

The AR57 select fire debacle…

I love the idea of the 5.7, so it was all to natural to end up with a five-seven upper for my AR. When I tried that on my select fire receiver, I instantly fell into sad panda mood… Turns out the bolt carrier group provided is semi auto ONLY. Since its a special BCG, replacements were needed.

Just a pic of the two side by side shows there is not much difference, but enough to kill the giggle switch.
