I do. Well... or more accurately stated used to.

Haven't shot at paper much for a quite a while. I've got some 200gr Berry's loaded with 4.4 Win 231 that my Colt really likes. Thanks for the reminder... I need to get out and exercise that Colt.

Nice offer. I wouldn't use them but you should be able to send using those prepaid USPS boxes.

Phil, my stuff always had a lot of tin in the mix. If kept under 1,000 FPS they should make a minimum of mess. Back in the day when men were men and sheep were nervous, me and my best man used to go through 400 rounds (per each) every week. It could be .44 Rem Mag reloads in our 629s or these paper punchers in our 1911s.

I still have all my reloading stuff, but polishing takes up all my time. The bullets should go to a member who burns up practice rounds.

I didn't catch this topic was an old thread so this is another post from me(I first posted in 2019).

I was hoping it was plans for a nice reloading bench when I just saw the latest posts.

I still have the two NIB Lee progressive presses (one in 9mm and another in 45 ACP), all the components and powder but never yet tried to reload. I hope to someday set up a bench in a corner of my new 24 X 30 detached garage and start reloading.....after in finish the restoration on my 1972 442 which I've recently started back on!

I'll keep watching this topic! Thanks Chuck!

I am in almost the same position. I have a new Lee progressive, well, actually it's a few years old now. I also have the brass. etc for 1000 rounds of 45 Super (for my Springer V-16 Long Slide). I just need to get all my uncles old shop 'junk' out of my shop, now that I have it sorted. Hopefully this spring I can get about 1/3 of my shop back.

I figure if I ever get the two presses set up and working I won't have to mess with them every time because I won't be changing out calibers every time!
