    Over the last couple months I've loaded up all of my 7mm BR brass so I have about 900 rounds between my chicken loads and my ram loads. That ate bloody near all of my Benchmark powder and then I went and started getting really deeply back into precision long range and burned the rest of it. I also managed to run myself completely out of small rifle primers and a few other bits and baubles. Yesterday my powdervalley order came in and now my powder cabinet is bowing under the load of 35lbs of powder again so it's time to get fast and continuous with the loading.

    I've started working on 500 .308, 500 .223, 500 .30carbine and 200 7mm magnum. I'm hoping to be done in about 2 weeks.

    Do you binge load?

    Day 1: 151 rounds of .30 carbine. 15 grains Lil' Gun under 110gr TMJ, CCI SRP, new unfired starline brass.

    That'll keep the wife off my back now that she's got plenty of ammo for her rifle. That batch puts me up to 500 of those in stock.

    Tonight, I'm thinking .308's. I got 150 cases prepped and ready for their final tumble before priming and finish loading. That or I could stuff together a couple hundred loads for the 7mags. Been a long time since I poured any US869.
