Well I just thought I would show yall that I do more than mow grass.

I just spent a day playing in the shop.

Casting some .30 carbine , 120 gr, .308 dia ,(actual dia coming out .310)RN bullets

Then powder coating those bullets, then they go thru a .308 sizer.
Ya see with powder coating , there is no lubing the bullets.:cool:

Here are some bullets that I powder coated , after baking at b400 deg for 20 minutes then resizing to ..308 dia, they be ready to load.

Here are some 400 gr bullets that I powder coated earlier today .

They are well on their way to being ready to shoot, this is a proven reload. 50 gr of IMR 3031 , Win WLR primer, and OAL of 2.500".Slightly compressed load. Medium crimp.

Ran out of IMR 3031, switched to 37 gr of Hogdon 4198, just as good.

The powder coating and casting the bullets takes the most time...prepping brass and loading powder , and setting the bullet is pretty quick. I do all my reloads one at a time on an old RCB Rock Chucker.

I don't know if Obama built those rounds but with all the time involved it does sound like a government job don't it? :rolleyes:
