Theres a buuuunch of houses for rent in our neighborhood. I dont know what the prices are. Just sayin

Just don't let the guys call you "Two Pump Chump"
Man I didnt even think about that! The auto disk formula chart calls for two .88 disks so you I could just double stroke it. Brilliant!

I'm waiting on the kit to come in as it was back ordered until 12/25/11. The only other thing I'm waiting on are 3 4 hole turrets and 3 rifle powder dies for the above. (Also Christmas gifts. They were ordered from Midway as the 4 hole turret is around 8.99 each.)
An excellent idea. I was looking at that turret and wondering if you could just get another and leave the dies set up in it for that caliber. Also Brilliant!
That's one of the problems with their Autodisk. It's great for bulk reloading, but to get exactly the right charge, you need a different powder thrower. Does the Autodisk have anything in the middle, ie less than max but more than minimum?
Yeah Im interested in bulk reloading right now. Just for making some economical ammunition that I can go plinking with at the range. The largest diameter hole the auto disk comes up to is 1.56 if I remember and I need 1.76 to get 23 grains of IMR 3031 which is the minimum load for a 55 gr fmjbt.
