Looks like all the pards are out shooting up a storm. That's about the only reason I can think of for so few posts the last couple of weeks.
We'll see if "business" picks up as we get our spring shooting under our belts
Trying to cure "cabin fever" Warm air and sunshine!!!! I believe things will start picking up here again soon. Everybody's gonna be bragging or complaining, or wondering about something new, and where better than here!!
spending most of my time either on the range or in the reloading room.
When I shot that smokelss stuff for a while I could throw out enough rounds for a shoot in the blink of an eye(well almost).Now that I am back shooting BP it really takes up my time loading.
Mason, my reloading got slower when I started casting my own boolits and lubing them. Using black powder don't make no never mind in my set-up since I am loading on progressive press, but it does take extra time to smelt lead, cast boolits, size boolits, lube boolits. Sure as H377 saves some script though; plus ya gets way more harmonoius result.
Mason, I am probably mistaken as usual, but can't you upgrade a 550 to a 650?
You are right though, the 650 works great. I have had zero problems with mine and it sure does the job.
I want to put on my wish list that PRS will get a mold going for the vast amounts of us .358dia shooters. Hint, hint. I am getting into casting and would sure like to have a good BP boolit. I am starting with just balls for my C&Bs, but it won't be long before I get a supply of them and need to venture out.
Heck I am still using a 450 I think it makes fewer mistakes because ya have to pay such close attention to whats going on...I did however make up a powder charge check die out of an old die and a wooden dowel.. works like a charm....heck my 6 year old daughter came out when I was reloading and said cooooolllll. Dad
Yes, you are right. On the plus side Mason, you would probably have no trouble at all selling your 550 :grin:
I was thinking of getting a case feeder for my 650, since that is the only trouble I have, forgetting to keep my case tube filled. Maybe I will get one for Christmas. I just ordered up enough stuff to get into bullet casting and that should keep me busy for a while. If I disappear from posting you will know the stuff came and I am outside, scratchin' my head and figuring out how to make some decent bullets. :?
