Trimming is the worst. I have a Dillon swager and it ain’t that bad.
I have a couple of the Dillon Super 600's - the 9mm setup is on one of Brock Burnell's contraptions. Makes it a lot quicker, but still no fun.

I hate trimming lol. I bought a platinum trim and prep and it makes things go fast but I hate trimming. Rcbs swager works good for me on the press. Next purchase will be annealz
99.9937286415% of what I'm loading is for plinking. It only gets trimmed if its absolutely necessary. I've loaded 223 as short as 1.73" and as long as 1.76".

Loaded some 35 Remington to test pressure, function and leading at the range Sunday. They are Lee 358-200-RF. It's a gas check bullet i powder coated and sized .358. It's to be shot in a Remington marlin 336 micro groove. We'll see how it goes. They are loaded up to near full house loads. Not expecting much as they might need to be sized larger. Pus, probably going to have to not PC. I chambered one a the house and with the PC, it engraving the bullet quite a bit making it pretty stiff to chamber. Good for accuracy but useless if they are to hard to chamber. Might have to go to lubing. I was using PBTP super durable wet black which goes on thick. The white aluminum seems to go on thin so might try that in addition to lubing.

Loaded up 5 - 125gr RFN , 38spl +P+.

Also loaded up 5 - 124gr RN , 9mm +P+.

Been so long since I reloaded anything I had to break out the instructions on how to set up my dies, LOL. Been probably a year since I really last loaded anything.

Haven't loaded any lately. Been busy with brass prep. Sorted by headstamp, resized, trimmed and swaged about 1000 .223 cases this weekend. Mostly PMC from SIL. Also resized and flared about the same number of 9mm. Have some Hi-Tek coated .356 bullets to try in the 9mm and bought some 62 gr FMJ and 68 gr HPBT to try in the .223. Also came into some CFE 223 to try out.

Interested in data for plus p plus. I’m at plus p according to quick load and my testing. 1.125 hst 124 gr. With 7.0 hs-6 I stopped with CFE pistol didn’t think I would get there safely. I used the wrong bullet type for my 40s&w oal 1.125 and used CFE pistol up to 6.3 and man did it kick like a 44 mag but no pressure signs. Sierra stops powder charge at 6.3 with 180 grain bullet I used lol lesson learned. Velocity was at 1020 with the 180 pill

I use quick load also to predict pressures.

38 spl
17500
20000= +p
Greater than 20000 = +p+


9mm
Greater than 38500=+p+

best I remember
