How about we get a little running list going of what loads/firearms/calibers we're using?

I'm fixing to start working on a 147 gr 9mm with Rainier plated bullets (hollow point)
Have some Accurate #5 that I'm going to try out with CCI primers.

Where you finding powder and primer?

[QUOTE=Floyd;1214]Where you finding powder and primer?[/QUOTE]
If he's like me he bought a bunch of supplies back when things were good and he's still dipping into that stash. The stability of primers and smokeless powders makes them good candidates for buying in bulk (which is substantially cheaper per round anyway) and using over a long period of time. It's been over a year since I've had to buy either. And of course brass and bullets keep forever. I don't reload constantly, but I have assembled a couple thousand rounds and still have enough supplies for a few thousand more.

I'll have to post recipes later when I get home and can consult my records. I currently use six different recipes (five different catridges with two different .223 loads) and just can't remember the details off the top of my head.

Oops. A correction to the .223 range load. The powder should have read:
