Who’s reloading today, and what?


I’ve got a buncha baby backs in the smoker, so it’s a good day for me to shampoo the carpets and get some loading done. Today is .38 special day. I need to produce at least 500 rounds.
I’ll be using the Hornady LNL progressive, Starline brass (6x fired), TiteGroup, CCI primers, Xtreme 125gr FP plateds, and a mix of dies: RCBS sizer, seater and powder check, Hornady case-activated powder measure and bullet feeder dies, Redding expander and profile crimp.
I do these runs in two passes. The first pass is to size, prime and expand.
The next pass has all 5 stations full: Hornady powder drop, RCBS powder check, Hornady Bullet feeder die, RCBS seater, and the Redding profile crimp. I don’t fully trust ANY powder measure in situations where it is difficult to visually see inside the case, hence the powder check die which locks the press up in the event of under or over charge.

So who else is at the bench today? Give up the gear and components you are using, but not the exact recipe 😁


Working on 100 rounds of 308 with 150 grain Interlok because I don't have any Sierra 168 grain match Kings yet. But it will do for hunting. Doing it all on a new Forster Coax with Redding types s bushing die and the Redding competition seater die. I like the new press.
I’ve always wanted the CoAx.. but now with the new T7, it will probably never happen. I really would like a new progressive, though. Just not in the financial picture right now. 😁
