Rounds in the last month

March was a busy month for me. I had hard drives fail on two different computers. The laptop was particularly painful when the Windows Home Server recovery utility didn’t support that hardware. I ultimately recovered everything but it took over a week of my spare time. The other hard drive only took a few hours of my time and lead to a simpler backup method which was nice.

Boomershoot tasks picked up too. There is still some space left if you want to sign up here.

Anyway, I reloaded 525 rounds of .40 S&W and ran many of them over the chronograph. This brings my lifetime reloaded ammunition totals to:

223.log: 2,424 rounds.
3006.log: 543 rounds.
300WIN.log: 1692 rounds.
40SW.log: 63,945 rounds.
9MM.log: 21,641 rounds.
Total: 90,245 rounds.

  1. In experimenting with, and tweaking, a new paper cartridge rolling mandrel, I made six cartridges over the weekend. Those are 44 Army cartridges for the Civil War era percussion revolvers; 30 grains of black with a 200 or 220 grain bullet, lube cookie in between, wrapped in a consumable paper case. At that rate of six per weekend I should reach 90,000 rounds in approximately 144 years, but in fact I can roll out dozens per day in my spare time. I never did try to find out how many I could make in a day of doing little else.
