    As many as possible. If a load turns out ok i'll use the rest as hunting rounds. Have bought some Hornady .311 123gnsp & Z max. May try some .308's as well.

    I've got a bag of about 20-30 I collected for a jewelry maker, but she never got back to me, so they are yours if you still need them.

    It can be done just time consuming.

    Will have a look when I get home I think I had some Barnaul 7.62x39 steel cases.

    Thanks guys.... Appreciated. I find loading steel to be a challenge so have set myself up with an old Simplex press I modified to suit. I can do any Berdan primed case whether steel or Brass, & also convert Berdan to boxer which saves heaps. Although it takes a bit longer than my Boxer reloads the cost saving's still worth it. Decapping the Berdan primed x39's & x54R's are quick & easy & the accuracy of rounds don't suffer either.
    Regards,Phil
