You realize, of course, that casual list of reloading has caused any number of hoplophbic liberals to freak out.........

Don't you love it when you can multi-task that easily.....

Whatcha using for 200gr .45?
I like 6gr of Unique.
Works pussy good from a 5" tube.

I use 7.0gr of Unique. It gives me right about 975fps out of my 5" Kimber, and carries pins right off the table.

It's also exactly 1,000 rounds to the pound.

What are you using for a press?  Is 200 a night intensive effort or a little here a little there?  I generally only load about 200-300 at a sitting, but that takes well less than an hour.

For .45 & .38 Super I'm using a Square-Deal B.  Including prep time and cleanup, it takes a bit over an hour for me to load 200 rounds.  Last night, however, I had to do the conversion from .38 Super to .45, and that took a bit longer.  It's been a while since I did a caliber change.

UPDATE:  From the time I started filling the primer tube until I refilled the case trays with 200 fresh empties was right at 60 minutes.
