Those pugnose 357's showed up yesterday, I sat them on the bench. ;)
Pretty little red buggers they are. :D

Yeah, I emptied a few yesterday in between the 45's.
I will give 'em a try shortly.

Cleaned it up a little yesterday. Things were getting out of hand. I will probably load up some extra plated 230 grain round nose .45 ACPs before Clovispup and I go to the range today. Don't want the Pup to run out of .45s.

Sizing brand new 35 Reminton cases.
Decided to shoot 35rem in Lever Action Silhouette this year so I broke out a stash.
Have a good stock of Speer 180 and 220 flat points. Testing Barry's 158s
Looking at those .35 Rem cases; you fellas have any issues at all with that brief shoulder on those cases? Or it simply isn't problematic? Thanks.

I use a Lee universal mouth expander die and don't have any problems.

Never had a problem loading jacketed stuff.
But for cast I bought a Lyman M die, which is basically a neck expander.
Have a couple of them in different calibers.

Before I left for work this morning I loaded 14 of those pugnose 357's.
I like that wide flat nose.

After looking at these bullets I dug out the jar with the 180's that my buddy used to cast.
They are very similar, the lube grooves are a little different but the nose is the same or so close I can't tell. ;)
