    Just thought I'd start a thread to BS for a while. I took the day off work for a little me time, long weekend. I slept in, had a leisurely brunch and decided to prep more rifle brass for next week. I zipped out 300 cases on the RT1200 in the last 30 minutes and have them in the tumbler half and half corncob/walnut with a little nu-finsh to clean off the lube and knock whatever slight burrs there may be.

    So what are everyones reloading/shooting plans for the weekend? I have 2 matches IDPA saturday and USPSA sunday. Gonna do some chrono work on my 9mm and rifle loads after the matches provided the weather stays reasonably dry.

    Nice good luck Bob. I have a few travel plans myself later this year for shooting events. Idaho and California State IDPA Championships for sure.

    Sounds good Boxer. I just started tumbling with 50/50 corn and walnut and am very happy with the resulte.

    Good luck Bob, have fun.

    Did you book a senior citizen handicapped room?

    Be careful at the shoot, don't slip and break a hip. :whistling:

    Loaded 400 rounds of .38 since I got home (took off a little early today); going to try and finish a total of 1000 so I can switch back to 9mm this weekend.

    Cranking out my favorite .45acp target load on my RCBS Rock Chucker as we speak.

    200gr Semi Wadcutter with a secret amount of Unique powder.
    (It ain't really a secret, it's the most popular target load in .45acp)

    It's all over the internet and in most reloading manuals.

    First time out with my new shotgun this morning and shot trap with a couple buddies. Going to the range tomorrow morning to shoot pistols while the wife goes out. Maybe load some more 40's on Sunday morning if time permits.

    The 50/50 mix is a little more agressive knocks those burrs down real quick.

    Was supposed to be shooting a USPSA match tomorrow, but that storm system is moving through here tonight and in the morning, so it got cancelled. I'll go to the indoor range instead, and have one more practice session for the GSSF match at Morganton on Sunday (40 miles from my house).

    It'll be too wet to do outdoor stuff tomorrow, so I'll probably load up 1000 rounds or so.

    Today I loaded 200 rounds of .40 and ran about 2000 rounds of federal 9mm and .40 brass through the tumbler. Still messing with this overall length issue. This Sunday a local club is doing a handicap IDPA outlaw match to honor FatMike . He keeps making excuses why he can't shoot so the whole match is from seated position. That will teach him.

    Yes it does, kinda a matt finish, I just pulled my brass out of the tumbler from early today, was set on a timer for one hour. I'm about to crank out another 50 rounds of .223 to chrono test myself tomorrow. I love having a day just to goof off and do as I like.... long time coming for me. :supergrin:

    The closest I've come to reloading this week was to tumble several hundred '06 and .223 cases picked up last weekend, and to put away 22 lbs of powder, some Tula primers for testing and a few other components from PVI. The local IDPA match will be next Saturday, so I'll be getting comfortable tomorrow with a new 6" 10-5 that was picked up this week.

    Good luck, Bob, at the GSSF match tomorrow. And to you too, Mitchell!

    It's in Richmond, Northern Bay Area late May. I have a cousin that lives in Pinole which is only 10 minutes away. I'll stay there shoot the Match Saturday and visit with family Sunday. I try to shoot that one every year for the excuse to do so. http://www.goldengate-idpa.com/
