Just about Sanders though is this not the morning of Saturday? I did up up my usual financial bits of the day, did some reloading of both 38Spl & 45ACP loads along with getting things ready for shooting on Sunday for I run the indoor h/gun range every Sunday morning to afternoon along with every Tuesday evening EVERY darn week of the year & have been doing so for past 17 yrs. Then realized there was a town vote of council, only I did not know who represented this or that so to 'ell with voting. So a bit of dusting & vacume work along with lining up what I will have for supper. Oh yes being Friday I did do some shopping & paid my monthly bit to keep my VISA fully paid for.

Mind you also thinking of changing from Hodgins HP-38 powder for my 45ACP loads to go to Winchester 452AA THOUGH this is a powder no longer made by Winchester nor has it been for past 10 yrs. I have great results out of it with 38Spl loads & have something like 11 pounds I can use & at 4.8 to 5.1 ounces for each load it will last for some time for in 38 Spl I have it at 3.1 to 3.4 grains. So the mind is continually churning around about this or that, but not about m/cs as all are dormant till sometime March.

Sort of know what you mean about being sick for I have been fighting a stupid cold for last three weeks. Sometimes I hit the sack & sleep, well yet on other times & cannot get to sleep till sometime around 5:00am & wake up late in the morning so my day is all screwed up.

Besides I have only been to the gym three time in the past 3 weeks & usually it is three times a week, but I do not want to spread it & each time I was dizzy & not feeling worth a darn.

I was surprised to-day on the way home from the gun range. Roads are dry, but close to freezing temp AND there was a red sportbike with the rider tucked in behind to ward off the cold air comming at him. Only bike I have seen on the streets or hwy in past week plus.

Still man I went through 100 rnds of 45ACP & 50 rnds of 38Spl to-day. My poor targets were in shreds even with paper on the back to make the hits last longer only my grouping was tight for someone my age.

Definately I will work out with this outdated Winchester 452AA to probable start off with 3.5 gr & work my way up by 2/10ths of a grain in steps till I am 3.9 as I feel said powder is that hot. So come Tuesday evening I will be practicing. For I have the brass of both guns being tumled away & cleaned right now.

Have my loads for use of Unique, Green Dot, HP-38 figured out for or 45s of light 185 gr Semi-Wadcutter cast bullet & now to be 452AA. Aslo some load for 200 & 230 Gr bullet tips. Tack on a variations of 38 Spl loads & bullet tips to 9mm. All takes time & each gun, even of the same caliber can & often is quite different & yes like I have more then one gun in one caliber with most well modified while both 45s were custom made, while one was made to my specks, one costing around 3 grand a few yrs ago & the latter was around 4 grand a yr later.

Obviously h/gun shooting & reloading is my hobby for this old sod come winter time.
