We're talking sonic 230s here. HOT loads. I moved the scale balance weight over a click to the right notch. Can't unbuild these. Crimped. Sure is pretty ammo. I go through 12 rounds in just a couple of strings shooting bullseye, but one of these suckers might be a gun-buster.
Maybe I could mail these to Somalia, care of "Pirate Abdul Mustapha." He probably packs a Sig 220 or knows someone who does.
Back to the drawing board. And into the deep trash, or somewhere good, with these.
Update: Inertia bullet puller. Sheesh. Took some beating and whacking but I got them apart. The slugs are marked up but not so marked up they can't be reloaded. Powder back in the trickler. Probably could use the primed cases.
Update II: Rebuilt. Everything case gauged, so....a-shooting we will go.
Update III: Picked up my brass plus a case from a Jap 7.7. Who was shooting that monster? Put the case in with 10 rounds of 7.7 I have. Who knows?
Update IV: Showed the case to Gentry, WWII Pacific vet. He used to swim in and mark beaches for invasions. Asked him when the last time someone shot one of those at him. 1945, he thinks.
