I had finished loading 357m last month using a hotter charge than I was used to but not reaching max charge. I had gotten 158 gr plated bullets. I'm finished up on 9mm plated 115 gr 680 of them and 1500 147 gr fmj bullets currently loading some ARX interceptor 65 gr bullets as a carry ammo. and when I get tired of that I also am knocking out the old primers out of 2k 223 rounds and getting them ready for tumbling. I also just received my 200 12 ga hulls and 250 wads. I am ready to hide from the summer sun and sit with full blast AC !!!2496

Hey, guys... reminder: we do not permit the public posting of load data on the forum.

I had to delete a couple of posts in this thread due to showing load data. You are encouraged to tell us about your gear, techniques and components you use, but no data. “ Data “ includes any measurement normally taken during the loading process, and specifically powder amounts and COAL.

Lets refer loaders to the manuals and permit them to do their own research and experimentation.

Thanks for understanding.
