That's a smart move. I dot know why I never though to load a couple a day. Im thinking I might make a stop somewhere for an ammo can, pick up some more brass that start doing this. I rarely seem to shoot Nd maybe go through fifty or so when I do.

So guess if I only shoot once a month, I've got 250ish left. Seems like a good start.

You load 10 rounds a day you'll be going so slow that you'll fall asleep.
I always break my loading into 100 round lots and do each set until that step is totally done for all the rounds.
That way I'll do 100 at a time for depriming and sizing until all of my cases are done. Then I'll move to flaring the necks and do 100 at a time until that's done. Then I move inside to my RCBS Handi Primer and prime em' 100 at a time until they're done. Then it's back in the garage for powder and bullet, you guessed it, 100 at a time until that's done.
I load on a single stage so it's just easier to do each step until that step is totally done before changing out my die to the next one in line.
Of course it's your time, you load as many or as few as ya' want but I'd rather get it done and have time to do other things AND have my ammo in boxes ready to go then do 10 a day.

Maybe not fall asleep, but you will surely make mistakes. Unless you are willing to check all you settings each time you sit down to load the next ten rounds. Especially the powder measure or scale and correct any changes that have occured, you are setting yourself up for an accident.

Better method would be to make 100 rounds, then take 2 or 3 days off and then start over again being sure to check all steps over again before starting. Make another 100 round and then start over again 2 or 3 days later. Repeat as needed.

Like I said in my post I hand load or hand weigh every load individually I don't see how it would me anymore dangerous then 100 at a time if anything it's safer. Much more accurate anyways. Sure you could load a 100 and take a few days off , the 10 a day is something I'm experimenting with. It seems 10 is how many I can get done before my daughter will need something ! Lol
