This project continues. I found some new RCBS dies that came with two different expander plugs. I haven't slugged the bore yet - I know that I have cerrosafe somewhere in my shop - it's hiding.
The good Starline 2.125" brass has been very hard to find with the current hysteria. Who'd a thought manufacturers would blow off the popular 38-55 to make brass for those silly 9mm's and 5.56's ?
After checking regularly with Starline, Graf's, Midway, Mid-South Shooters, Natchez, Track of the Wolf, Powder Valley, Buffalo Arms and a couple others - I tripped over 100 unfired still-in-the-packages on Gunbroker.
The bidding could have gone better - but I won. It did come down to the wire, but at least the last bidder gave up before we hit the whole fifteen minute rule thing. That would have been annoying if we'd gone into extra innings. What didn't help on my end was that we lost our internet in the last hour of the auction. (We get our service via landline and a nearby car accident wiped out the phone service.) Had to complete my bidding using my worn-out, antique 3G example of a cellphone. My family recognized the signs and left me alone.
"Well hell boys. I'd damn sight rather be hung by my friends than by a bunch'a damn strangers."
