Sadly no.
I have not been shooting in a while either.
I started some maintenance on my big press and found a battery for the double charge sensor had leaked and ruined the component.
Sooo I guess I am out a hundred to get a new one.
Part of me says to go ahead and get it and part says wait till you need it.
I should go ahead and order a couple of thousand slugs jacketed and plain lead.
As you know I prefer jacketed but lead is cheaper.
I should start loading .223 as I have something over 9000 slugs, I came into a box of 10,000 that had a couple of handfuls missing.
The guy who bought it died before he could use it.
I think the real problem was that he discovered that loading rifle is much different than loading straight case pistol with a carbide die.

Uh oh, I'm envisioning dimpled shoulders and scraped up cases, plus some destroyed rims. It's very different. I thought someone came up with 223 carbide dies?

Found a bulk deal on hornady 150gr SST (Super Shock Tip) bullets. I had to jump on it even though I already have quite a few of them.

I also found out Hornady ZMax zombie killing bullets are for sale as components now. Not cheap at $280 per 1,000 for 308 168gr.

It's been quite a while since I have looked but I am thinking that even with carbide dies you have to lube rifle cases.
At some point I will take a look and report back.

What I read may be a bit dated.
Carbide Rifle Dies are for longevity.
You still need to lube the cases.

Have you seen the 9mm that is necked down to 22 ?
They are making a conversion kit for .22 TCM 9R
http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015 ... atibility/

Or you can get the original round .22 TCM

Anyone got a price on this stuff?

Haven't been reading much lately, seems like a pretty severe neck down.

It's supposed to be a huge ball of fire and loud but with minimal recoil
I have been toying with the idea of getting a conversion barrel for one of my Glocks.
I would also like to play with 9x25 Dillon which is a 10mm case necked down to 9mm.
It's just the last time I played with custom formed cases 7 TCU (223 cases necked up to 7mm) I was disappointed in the effort vs reward.
