Ooopsies.... I haven't reloaded .44 Magnum in a while, and reset the Dillon 650 to run a batch. For some reason, when I broke it down last time, I wrote "Bullseye" instead of "2400" on the load data card I stuff in the powder measure when I put it away (SOP).
So I just loaded 500 rounds of 240gr .44 Magnum with a little over a DOUBLE CHARGE of Bullseye.
I'm way too lazy to pull 500 heads, so I guess I just wasted a bunch of brass, powder, and primers. I plan to throw them in the waste oil drum and let them sit a week or so, dammit! to kil them.
While I was running the press, something kept bothering me. I finally figured out what it was- I was spilling powder onto the baseplate, which I didn't remember happening last time. Small wonder, 20.0 gr Bullsye is over double the recommended load.
Moral of the story: Check everything. Check it again!

Dang. Does anybody have a better idea than the waste oil soak?

I'd run the cartridges up through a a single stage press, clamp the bullet with a set of sharp dikes that are laid across the head of the press and then pull the case down which leaves the bullet in the dikes and the case in the holder. You might ruin the bullets but you'd still have your case and the primer & powder. Godsdog.
