Default What did you do in your reloading room today?

So far nothing. But, I saw this type of thread on another forum. It was full of pictures, gear reviews, process etc. It looked like a great idea. Maybe it will work here.

So what did you do in your reloading room today? :-)

What is going on in this pic?

As for my reloading room, all I did was tidy up some hand tools the kid was digging into to build something over the weekend. He is 4 and always up to something. That is why all the reloading stuff gets locked up!

I think he may have been referring to the AMP Annealer with Aztec mode software Chuck.

Last time I was in my reloading room I pressed 30 .243 rounds for my coyote rifle and got organized for the hunting trip I’m on. I’ll back in the bunker December 2nd to start prepping brass for other rifles.

loaded up some test loads for a bsa martini in 218 bee.
loaded up some test loads for a 222 rem mag with 69 gr tmk’s.
tightened up some scope bases on fella’s 300 win 🙄; then zeroed it.
mounted one of my old school tasco target scopes on my 222 rem mag.
checked zero on my 6x47 rem then lent to a buddy for his son to take his first deer.
a little organizing.

Sharpened some knives on my work sharp Ken Onion edition for butchering deer tomorrow.

Last night I installed some new inserts in some arrows.

Last reloading session was 25 rounds of 7mm Rem Mag with 120gr TTSX for hunting the next few years.

Finished my final load development for my 6.5x 55 SE . Used SKAN loads.

Seated the 156 Berger EOL to max mag length (3.220) and tested velocities.

Settled on 2775 MV. Looking good. Groups tomorrow.

Only loaded 57 rounds of 6.5CM today.



Just got back from a 10 day vacation and had to move a bunch of snow on my land. Took me almost 5 hours.
