Maybe you need less stuff. Love the chart and paracord. They broke the mold after you buddy.

You are correct Sir... 1/3 of the calibers on the chart are gone from my collection... working on trimming 3-5 more.

A friend told me to add a bit of alcohol to walnut tumbling media to reinvigorate. Add and let it tumble WITHOUT brass for about 5-10 minutes... then add brass.

Works very well...

Ran out the other day... refuse to use Scotch... SO... added mouthwash.

WORKS LIKE A CHARM!!!

...and minty fresh too

Seriously...

Next load out will be .358 Winchester and 9.3x62 Mauser (just Fire Formed about 500 pieces of brass from .30-06 brass).

But trimming every single one by hand can be a pain...

My WFT in .308 has seen a lot of use...

https://www.midwayusa.com/product/119117...-308-winchester

But the end mill cutter is 3/8" and NO GO on .358 and .366 (too small (yes 3/8" is .375") but that is the bullet diameter, NOT the brass neck OUTER DIAMETER).

I could buy a "Big Boy" for $80

https://www.midwayusa.com/product/528494/little-crow-gunworks-big-boy-worlds-finest-trimmer

and Special Order the REQUIRED Insert for $30 more.

https://www.midwayusa.com/product/132248...-93x62mm-mauser

But I am a Cheapskate...

SO... I drilled out the base of my current WTF from 3/8" to 1/2" and bought a couple of 1/2" Stub Endmills on EBay ($6.50 each). https://www.ebay.com/itm/253536619060

Then I drilled out the Pilot Hole to .380+/- (still has the necessary shoulder) and I am back in business.

I'll edit with pics later.

Sometimes the perfect load is a certain powder HIGHLY COMPRESSED.

This is the case with my very strong, very fast and VERY ACCURATE .358 Winchester load.

But... how do you get all that powder on the stupid case???

This is the 49 grains I need... BUT IF I REMOVE THE FUNNEL... POWDER WILL SPILL ALL OVER MT RELOADING BENCH...


SO.... Mr. 5mm allen head wrench to the rescue as a ramrod tool...


And TaDa... no spillage. Ready to seat the bullet.


There may be some spring back (after seating the bullets) so measure these rounds carefully.

NEVER NEVER NEVER COMPRESS Trailboss powder... really bad things happen.

Next up will be 9.3 x 62 Mauser...

Since you can't buy that Case Gauge... you rent the reamer and make your own...







They came out well... tested mine last night.

Put up a post on 24HC and had three guys that also wanted them... sooooo... split all the costs by 4 and saved myself (and others) some $$$... vs. doing just mine.

Very nicely done. I like to see how other people do their reloading, to help me straighten out my angles. Thanks for the series.

How to "fire-form" brass from one caliber to another.

https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/12729547

Remembered this one (i.e. I am loading the 9,3x62 Mauser brass (formerly .30-06) at the moment.
