I loaded these rounds in 100 to 400 round batches. With crimping, it averaged 2.5 hours to load 200 rounds. Used a RCBS rockchucker kit. It took me about two months. I had a two week pause when social life pulled me away, lol, but otherwise it was slow and steady loading for me. For a poor single guy who rents, I really didn't think that buying a progressive kit suited my lifestyle. 2K rounds is surprisingly heavy. Based on rough calculations, I was expecting 50 pounds or so, but it feels like 60-80 when all loaded up in my duffel bag. PS: Got enough powder, primer, and bullets to load another 6K. Brass will have to scavenged though.
