    Unfortunately those day are far behind us now. S&B quit making and supplying primers for the reloading market and also a few years ago quit exporting primers to the Free World. I haven't seen any S&B primers in over 3 years.

    Right about the time BPS was buying out Cabela's I was in the local Cabela's and bought up the last 2k SPP and 2k of the LPP that they had. that was the last I'd seen of the S&B primers.

    I hadn't heard that. I guess that explains why I haven't seen them on shelves for a while. Too bad, they're great for target loads and such. I guess after I use mine up I'll be using whatever is on sale.

    I was able to find S & B locally a couple of years ago and wish I had bought more.

    after reading kmw1954's post I guess it was over three years ago...time flies when you're having fun!

    I didn't load anything today but I did size 300pcs of .223 brass and 200pcs of .308 brass. Now I have to trim them all, my least favorite part. yuk

    I finally got about 3,000 45acp cases resized, primer pockets cleaned, and case mouths belled, and all of them ready to charge, dump powder, and seat the bullet. Going on a run, and I won't stop until I've filled up at least one 50 cal ammo case, maybe two. More to come.

    Unable to locate any 2400, I found a pound of Vihtavuori so, I decided to give it a try. Loaded 50 each .44 and .357 today. The ballistics seem close on paper. I’m anxious to get to range to see how it performs.

    My first loading for the .308 was using Sierra 165gr. tipped game kings. They were just ok for accuracy. Yesterday I loaded a range of charges with Win748 and CFE223 using Hornady 150gr. SST/cannelure and Hornady 150gr. FMJ BT/cannelure. A total of 140 cartridges.

    Now...please stop raining! We are well on our way to the 40 days, 40 nights thing! And it's supposed to continue all this coming week. I guess today is going to be load .45acp range ammo.

    Well, I am a piker...loaded just 100 of the 45 ACP with Titegroup and 230 grain coated Brazos bullets. The ones I had out the other day were seated a tad long and ran fine, these are at 1.20 and look really stubby. I held to run to see what they act like.

    Instead started a run of 9mm with sizing/priming 175 so far...may do another 125 for a run on the Lee 1000 with Titegroup. I am feeling a strong urge to get out and empty some cases.
