Hello,
Is there anybody home?
There has been Zero activity here.
Well, I am just recoving from Covid, going to try to go back to work tomorrow.
Still not there so be a few weeks I am sure before I get to the range.
However I am going to load up some cast loads in the mean time.
Figure I will start with a LEE 155 GC made for Semi-Auto's on top of some 5744 or 4198

I just worked up a load for the Yugo SKS using H335 because that was all I could get. I have had an old stash of Win brass and Win 123 gr soft points. I started on the low side and quickly ran into the primers starting to back out. My best load was 30.2 grains of H335 and gave me 2250 fps and 4.25 MOA with the iron sights. Not great but good enough for my old retired eyes.

Not bad for irons.
I don't have any jacketed bullets to make a load for.
However I do have some unleaded bullets to work up a hunting load.
