been working on 9mm's recently, I'm trying to get about a 5 gallon bucket ahead on them too.
last week I cast up about 2-k swaging cores for my 30 cal jackets.
it's getting into casting season so I should be doing mostly rifle boolits in the coming weeks.

I have doped out getting great boolits out of my SC 358495 WC mould. My daughter's boyfriend is on leave from the Army, so I put him to work with that mould while I worked with a 311413 that I just bought. It was a good opportunity to get to know the lad a bit better.
