Back in my IPSC days a shootin' buddy and I did 600 .45acps one Saturday night. On a Lyman T-Mag Ö no progressive loader. A pretty good work out.

Letís see. For my arms, I do 16 per.
I can knock out a slice of pizza in 2 reps, soooooo, like 8 slices, yep... 16.....
No problemos.

Now if you want to go heavier but only do 12.... use a 6 pack of beer. 2 gulps at a time x 6, yep.... 12 reps.

That's impressive.
I load on a turret and have never done anywhere near that.

Now that I'm loading 9mm again, my turret is suddenly feeling pretty slow. 100 rounds takes forever it seems. With revolver calibers and 45 auto the turret was fine, but 9's are hungry little devils.

Those blue workout machines look so tempting.

Yeah it was our most ever. We had an assembly line going … one sizing/decapping … the other priming … then one dropping powder while the other seated bullets. We had pre-sorted our brass to get rid of any bad or dented cases. We had even cast all of the bullets the week before. It gave us several range trips of practice ammo.

I only load .38/.357 and .44mag these days. With the current price of 9mm and the time involved I prefer to buy them.
