    Yes on the mini chop saw. I posted a pic over in the Show us your reloading bench thread.
    I don't remember the name of the jig. Nor where I put the extra blades, lol. If you said it, I'd know it.

    A little snafu halfway through the 180 or so cases. Suddenly they had gotten too short. Luckily I only lost about ten. I fooled around and reset the jig, started churning them out again, then suddenly they got too long. I'm not sure what's up with that. Everything was tight. I'm not sure if something moves as the saw heats up. Luckily I was measuring every twenty or so. I am looking to buy some due to the tedious nature of making them, but the price on them is outrageous. And the reasonably priced cases are on B/O.

    I'll let you know what I settle on. I shot some loads today and decided I needed to mount a scope if I'm going to be serious. At least until the load is established.
    The hardware Ruger sends with the carbine does not work all that well, so I ordered some mounts that would work. Which means I also need to raise the comb.
    I'm glad you are being careful friend. That can become rather "entertaining" fast.

    Today is a new day with new loads.
    I ordered 500 from a guy @ 300 Blackout forums. $60 for 500 shipped. Had to debur, ream primer pockets and for grins run them thru my RCBS SB dies. I would rather do that than buy a saw and jig to cut them.

    Sixty bucks. Good price, maybe even with the added prep work.
    Were they the same headstamp? What did they measure lengthwise?

    As tedious as it was, it was also kind of cool forming my own brass. And it did get me shooting more quickly than ordering some in.
    And now I know I can.
    If I didn't have my .223 cases separated I might have given it second thought. You can't turn every .223/5.56 case into 300 AAC on account of brass thickness.
