Used my two small FARTs and SS pins to clean about 600 cases between .243, .270, .30-30, .35 Rem, .308, and .30-06.

A tablespoon of Dawn Ultra dishwashing liquid, a tablespoon of generic citric acid, and the FART filled with warm water and the SS pins will make brass look brand new. Just have to make sure brass is rinsed thoroughly in cold water to neutralize and stop the chemical reaction of the citric acid. Then into a 8-tray dehydrator to dry the cases.
Sorry, but what is a FART? I know Im gonna regret even asking but Im curious.

Loaded ammo for the Tn State UBR Championship Match this Sat at Dry Branch in Dixon Springs
156 rounds plus enough foulers

CCI 400 primers and 28.35 grs LT32 +/- .005 for 3410 fps

Believe me if it doesn’t hit where it’s aimed it was the nut behind the triggers fault

Took all of my dies apart, cleaned, degreased, air-dried, then wiped down with a clean microfiber towel before reassembling. Cleaned the crud off of the rams on my three Lee presses. Wrapped newspaper around them, then sprayed with graphite lubricant. Will be getting busy later today or tomorrow with some .30-30 Win and 35 Remington.

Damn if it didn't turn into an all-day job due to the different calibers I load for.

In a river hopefully!
Loaded up some Barnes 120’s over varget for the 7-08. Excited to see how they shoot. Also loaded 10 280 ai with the 150 eldx. They are gonna have to shoot good to replace the Nosler’s lol.
Can I ask how many grains of Varget?
And yes I realize you are not responsible if I blow my head off with too much powder. Thank
