I was banished to stay home today by SWMBO so I shuck down to the reloading room. I have been neglecting my anmo supply for a while. I jumped right back in the saddle with my son. I had brass of every caliber spread every where. We just picked a caliber and started prepping and loading. We managed to wrangle up all the 257 Wheatherby and 7mm Mag brass first all the 257 brass got loaded up until we hit the range for a little "research and development" (that's code for we snuck out of the house.). So since we were there I burned up the rest of my 7mm Mag ammo so everything would be fresh. I hate the have stale ammo sitting around. I played a round of redneck golf at the range, I T'ed off with the 45-70 revolver and followed up with the 7mm Mag until the ball disappeared or disintegrated. I seemed to have a nasty slice to the left with the 45-70. I will have to check the zero on the next R&D trip. Hopefully back down there tomorrow after work.

Kudos to yah, once in a great while I give SWMBO green backs and she heads off shopping w/o me and then I can shoot and reload in peace. But every once in awhile she will help me reload so it works both ways.

My SWMBO has no problems with my reloading or shooting since I calculated my savings over factory ammo in women's shoes.

Deal

My boss loves to shoot also and I made sure she was there a couple of times when I had to buy factory ammo so she knows how much I save. It would be nice if you would like to help reload. But that is a subject I am not going to push.:)

What a refreshing evening in the reloading room. I went through 50 7mm mags, 40 257 wby, and 350 45 ACP. Plus I found another 75 7mm mags that needed sizing and polishing. Not to bad for an evening. I need to go shopping again I ran out of IMR 4350, and am down to 400 LR Mag primers and I broke a couple of decapping pins for the Load master. I have 2200 large pistol primers left and I don't think that will be enough to reload everything that is sitting there. Heh heh heh I love having a nice stockpile of ammo. Give me a month or so and I will be ready for the Zombie Apocalypse.
