Not for long if the Republicans try to do away with: Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, Welfare, etc.. Which they have said they want to do!! If they try and actually do it, I predict there will be a WAR in this country and there will be A LOT of Dead Politicians and many People will die!! Why? Because the People who rely on those Programs to Survive will rise up and revolt against the Government and take their frustrations out on the Politicians that voted to take away those programs!! Some will do it peacefully, but many many others will not! Those others who do not will take up arms and will fight against the government. One day IT WILL HAPPEN!! Especially the way the Government has been going over the years!!

I know It is "Negative Waves". LOL But if you look at what both parties of the Government have been doing and want to do and with what the President wants to do and is doing, and has said he "Wants to do" during the election campaign, I do not think that he can do all of it. Also some of what he wants to do will hurt the working class and poor. Yes he is talking big about helping "Make America Great Again", But will his actions cause America to fall into ruin? Just a thought to think about. I hope he can succeed and help all Americans: Poor, Middle income and wealthy.

Do you load 5.56 or .223 for that mini?

I reloaded a few 357 mags a short while back. I loaded them with Hornady 180 gr. XTPs for my T/C Contender. It seems to prefer the heavier bullets, although the recoil is a bit stiff.
I've sold several of my long guns due to poor vision. All of my shooting is at 25 yards or less. Mostly handguns at 7-8 yards.
I'm only loading 38 SPL., 357 mags & 44 mags.

By the way, where did SWO1 go? Did I miss something?

When I talked to his daughter a couple months ago she said he had been extremely busy but we would probably hear from him soon.

I was hoping to be reloading by now, but things have happened to keep me from reloading. I have had back surgery in April 2016, had weight loss surgery in September 2013, money I was saving to get more reloading equipment I had to use to get new tires for my mom and dad's car, and now I had to buy parts to build a new computer! Also the equipment that I do have I am unable to set it up, because there is just no place to set up! Why? My nephew, his wife, their 2 children, 2 cats, and most of their possessions are in our basement and my nephew has some stuff in our garage! I cannot set it up in my bedroom because there is no space there, my TV, Video game systems and other stuff that normally would be stored down stairs in the basement is in my room! LOL My TV prevents me from even getting into my closet! LOL I hope to get some more reloading equipment later this year and then maybe build a small bench or temporarily use one of the benches dad has and load a few rounds to test out. But I would have to clear out a spot in the garage to do that.

Is there any real need to trim handgun brass other than trimming 357 sig?

:confused:
Straight wall cases do also stretch, not only rifle but pistol also. As an example, revolver rounds are usually crimped. On repeated firings the crimp tends to thin out and stretch as the case is ran thru the reforming die. SAMMI specs give Max and Min case length. All reloading manuals (mine anyway) state a case length for their tested loads. Different guns like different lengths. The case length will affect performance with the same powder charge and bullet seating. Its my opinion to achieve consistent performance all rounds should be as like as possible in all aspects of the components of the round. Guess what I am saying is depends on each persons requirements/likes for accuracy.

Did another test batch for the Mini-14 using Hornady 50g V-Max bullets and H380 powder,the shell didn't look like it had the capacity to hold the max listing so I didn't try it. Probably finish the other test batch using the same bullet with Benchmark powder tonight.
