Picked up another 2011 frame from my FFL last night, and this morning fit the slide to the frame. I just need safeties, pins and flat trigger to finish it off

Took 2 hours to get from this...

Finally got around to fitting the Kart bushing and replacing the 10-8 bushing.

This was a while ago, when it had the 10-8 bushing

Image

Same load (Win231), with fit bushing. Shot 2 -10 round groups, the lower was the 1st, upper was 2nd
Image

Next was trying a new powder (WST). These are 20rd groups (@~15yards) shot continuously. The groups are under 2"

Thanks!!!

BTW, I have to adjust the sights a little since I tightened up the bushing fit.

My gun collection.

Unfortunately the water was a lot deeper than it looks and we were unable to recover any of my guns when the boat capsized. Darn! :-)

Progress made tonight. Cased gauged and boxed 14,050 rounds of ammo. Then opened up the gray tool box that's half full of lead bullets and tumbled lubed until I ran out of space. Bullets are .356 diameter 127 grain trunticated cones. All of the bullets will get a second coat, but I'm looking to modify my mold to bump the diameter to .358 dia

Big plastic ammo can has polished 9mm brass in it, as does the .30 cal next to it. Wooden ammo box has manuals, scales, case gauge, calipers, etc. in it. Coffee can has sized/primed casings to put in the press to take the spots of ones I take off to measure the charge and keep rolling without making a mess. .30 cals on the left end will have sorted 9mm brass in it. .30 cal on top of the wooden one is my primer catcher. I added a quick disconnect plastic plumbing fitting to my press to take a length of vinyl tubing, taped a heavy axle nut on it to keep it in the can, and no more missed primers or stopping to empty it out.

Drawers are filled with misc. supplies.

As low as they've kept the water level in Buckeye Lake due to the dam repairs, I was really hoping to find mine. No luck, so far. :wink:

My little homemade mount for my baby press. A kind soul donated a Lee classic press to me, and it just so happens that the front mounting bolt for the strongmount of my press mates up to the rearward most hole of the press and allows the ram to clear the table top.

I'm not sure if I"ll be keeping it there, I have a feeling this little cast press needs the load spread out a bit more for full on sizing. It did pretty well sizing without being mounted up to anything though.
