    Cases - calibers - chaos. Grrr!

    Long overdue - started sorting 5 gall tub of brass - it was too full to hold more.

    Threw a batch of assorted cases into tumbler earlier but when I took em out - remembered - 9mm fits inside 40 - fits inside 45acp! 38's and 357's are a breeze by comparison.

    So - got to starting a pre-sort but again - darn it - in particular those 9mm's and the 40's, dang do they fit well together!!! Makes it slower to sort stuff.

    I guess I should not bother with 9mm's as unlikely to load many - but when folks give me a handful of brass I just say thank you and take whatever comes. In fact don't use 40 yet but - still accumulate the brass!

    Oh well - press on in stages - good tho to see as I go, an obscene large amount of .45acp - helps offset those dratted 9's

    Determined this winter to load a lot of rounds - and cast a loada bullets too. Wonder if I'll actually get em done

    Cast you some Bud - yeah right! Hey - I have enough trouble kickin' my own butt to get done my own stuff!!

    Anyways - with your cal specifications - you'd also need to send at least a tractor/trailer full of alloy - as well as molds.

    I mainly want to do loadsa my fave Lyman Keith 44's, some .452's for Casull and some .459's for 45-70. Then if any lead/tin/alloy left - a load of gas check 357's.
