Just finished up some 9mm 147’s, 308’s working on 223’s
I pulled out some commercial 223’s from the pile so I don’t have to play the primer crimp game. I need to get a Dillon primer swager. My RCBS set up is just not user friendly, and I really like RCBS stuff.

I used up all my 9mm 124 gr LRFN bullets - just under a 1000. So now I'm on my 327 Fed Magnum catrtidges. Did about 800 98 gr HBWC's of those and now on 85 gr JHP's.
Probably get onto 357's after that.
Plus my lady gave me a Dillon Super Swage 600 for Christmas, so 223/5.56's are coming up after that. I tried it. That gizmo makes removing the primer crimps much easier.
I would love a Dillon Swager. I use the RCBS press mounted and it’s okay but that Dillon is slick!

Hiya Guys :) . The first loads to come off my new reloading bench were 150 rounds of 44 Mag shells loaded with CCI magnum primers, 23 grains of H110 & 250 grn hardcast swc bullets :) .

I just cleaned resized and primed 50 shells for a run of 150 44 specials . For powder I have H110, Bullseye, Unique & Power Pistol powder . I was thinking about loading these specials up with unique but after doing some research and finding a good deal on a couple pounds of it I'll be picking up some Green Dot that I may use for these specials instead with a recipe from my 1987 Speer reloading manual. From what I've read thus far it seems to be quite popular with 9mm, 38/357, 40 s&w & 45/ 45lc loaders as well as for small rifle cartridges like the 30-30 & 7.62x39. What do y'all think ? ...
When I think of green dot I think of shot gun shells
