First Rule of Reloading: DON’T RELOAD WHEN YOU’RE TIRED OR DISTRACTED!
Here it is about 10:30 and I’m finishing up after reloading 100 rounds of 7BR, 50 rounds of .357 and 150 rounds of .45ACP, and what do I do? Dump about 500 grains of Unique out of the powder measure into the nearly full bottle of 2400! (Idiot! Idiot! Idiot!) Hey! They’re the same shape and size, right?
So I dumped half the bottle of 2400 in the back yard and torched it. I’ll check tomorrow to make sure I got all of the Unique out of the 2400, or I’ll just have to burn the whole thing and get a new bottle of 2400.
At $19.99 it’s a cheaper lesson than loading .357 Magnum 180 grain silhouette loads with mixed powder. (kaBOOM!)
