I looked into reloading recently. No much point now as they are twice the cost they were, you can't find popular dies, caps or sabots for loading. If you want to trade loaded for brass or buy 9mm brass PM me.

I left most of mine in Buildit's yard. I couldn't see the damn things because my eyes were watering from the wind blast.

I also used the excuse when I missed it was because of the wind blowing.

Yep. I was getting into it just before things went crazy. I inherited the press and brass tumbler, I bought a set of used dies from a guy online. It took me about three weeks to find all the components, but I now have enough to make about 2000 rounds and probably have that many in the safe.

If I get to a point where I need brass I may get ahold of you. I think by the time I need anything the storm will have passed. Then its time to stockpile more supplies for the next time.

Its really amazing to see how you can fine tune a round for the gun your shooting and how much just a couple tenths of a grain can affect your group of shots.

Play with your COL once in rifles to fine tune the bullet contacting the lands and that effects accuracy also.

You'll appreciate this...

I was at Walmart a few days ago, looking for .22LR or .223. They only had 8 boxes of 9mm and two guys in line. The first took five boxes. The second wanted one. As she was ringing up the second guy, the cashier asked me if I wanted the other two. I declined. With a quick sideways glance at me, the second guy took the last two.

My initial thought was that he didn't really want them, but was afraid someone else would.

Should have bought them and then sold them to the guy for twice what you paid.

By the way which Walmart?

Britton Road in Dublin. The cashier told me all the ammo that comes in is gone by 10 AM each day.

Thanks, I'll have to check them next time I'm over there. Walmarts near me havn't gotten anything in a while. I actuall thought of making a comedy video of someone dreaming about the good old days of buying unlimited ammo at walmart.

If you see a bulk pack of .22LR (300-500 rounds), please grab it for me. My wife wants to do an Appleseed shoot and we need ammo for the 10/22.

No rifles here, just handguns. I don't know why but I have never had much interest in the rifles, maybe that will change once I shoot Indypups a few times.

Listen, we've all wanted to do it, but I can't condone that behavior.

Oh, do it with those cartoon figures that speak in computer generated voices, that'd be hilarity to the max, squared!
