Start with a set of empties



use a hand primer....







Find a good load for the powder you have.....My father in law gave me this old can of 4198 I was more than willing!!! FREE POWDER!!!!!



Weigh the charge to make sure you are where you want to be at......I use Lee dippers and load by volume and after checking the charge on the scale I was getting 19.4 gr every time......perfect.....








Set the primed case on the loader base....





Add powder....



Add the bullet......





After smacking the bullet home with the loader and a rubber mallet it is ready to crimp.



filp over the loader for the crimper end and give it a medium tap for a crimp.



finished bullet.....



then label them.....

Today I was shooting my .45ACP and .44 Special reloads! Tomorrow I'll start a new batch of .45ACP.

I can't wait next week the final part to my quest to get 9mm loading equipment. Believe it or not the last thing I'm waiting for is a shellholder. I have 2250 bullets waiting to be loaded. My shellholder should be here by next Monday!!!!

Nice pics.

All by hand? Rubber mallet? No press? Impressive.

We had good weather Saturday. Two of my sons and I went out and shot 225 rounds of 9mm at a state range.
Now we have 235 more cases to reload (yes, we found extra brass). We have about 800 ready for powder/bullets, but no bullets.
Raining here today, let the cleaning/depriming/stretching/priming/flairing begin!

Reminder to self, still need to order bullets!!!!
