For the first time in months some 357 magnum. Hadn't cast anything for awhile, but had some plain base 125-grain truncated cones and loaded them to 38 special pressures to prevent leading. I'll be trying them tomorrow in my new Winchester 1892 Short Rifle - made in Japan; a very nice gun.

I finished my last 350 rounds of .40 S&W. I've got 2575 loaded up and in ammo cans. I think I'm probably good for awhile now.

I'm guessing COAL is the issue in question.

Nice label! Looks very correct for the style of ammo.

Sounds like a fine target load. Any idea as to the velocity?

I’ve been off the Internet and the forum for a few weeks now. I put the time to use to shoot more and reload more.
Below is 400 rounds of .308 reloaded to M852 specs (168gr HPBT, 42gr IMR 4895). Nice groups at the range.
Starting to get the hang of it now, I think.

250 45 Raptor. For my AR10.

Its a rimless 460 Magnum and a total hoot to shoot.

Are those cut down 45LC?
I do like Trail Boss great powder for revolvers and lite loads for rifles. My daughter's 14 and shoot my 30-06 over a full case of TB and likes it only 2 to 4in low at 100.

Yes- Starline makes brass, but I had a lot of .45 Colt on-hand, and the tools to make it easy to shorten a bunch of it in a hurry.

.44 Colt- Original, using a .45 caliber heel-base bullet. I just got a custom collet-crimp bushing from Old West Bullet Molds that works with the heel-base bullets. Loading a 200gr. LFP over 6.5 grains of Trail Boss.
