    Thank you guys. And the same sensibility to each of you here.

    I'm hoping to lose some weight and get my diabetes under some better control.

    Hope there's a Nighthawk somewhere in my future this year.

    To kick off the new year, I cast about 50 lbs of bullets and then powder coated them. I'd shot my GP100 match so much in the past month that I ran out of my powder coated loads. Had to replenish. I figured instead of being lazy and stuff with the day off I would spend half the day casting and the rest playing games with my kids. A good first day of 2015!

    My New Year Resolution:

    SHOOT MORE! Cowboy, rifle, handgun, centerfire, rimfire -- whatevah. I recently participated in a intrawebz shooting competition, and frankly, Scarlett, I embarrassed myself. This house/ move focus has put paid to my already meager shooting skills.

    One of my resolutions is to dial in some specific loads. I have several general purpose loads that I like and use, but I want to get some loads dialed in to the respective rifles.

    Not yet, mostly just find out what works best in each rifle load-wise.

    ?So you're still full-length resizing each case so it works across your whole set.

    Yeah, that's what I have been doing... In the past, I wanted all my .308 loads to be able to function in all of my various .308 rifles. Some of them being semi autos, they require a full length resize in order to feed/chamber properly. Also, the ability to toss a few rounds to a buddy if he runs out has been nice.
