Ok, most of the other sub-forums have one, I thinks its high time we did.

I'll start.

Is there anyone out there who has absolutely no 55 gr FMJ in .223 who really needs them ? Not to have for stash, or to make that pile in your closet that much bigger- but someone who actually needs them and can't find any ?

Spoken for to Horsemen.

Good man, Arch- hope your store comes through !

I ran out because I didn't have a lot to begin with. I must admit, I got caught short. I was loading for a bolt action rifle so i didn't need many but now I have an AR and all my 55gr bullets are gone but for 20. Why?

I have a mixed bag of .223 brass someone can have. There is probably over 100 pieces and it has been cleaned and polished. It is mostly military brass, but I'm pretty sure the primer pocket crimps have been removed. I believe this was brass that was loaded by one of the companies that sell reloads, as most of the crimps were removed when I got the brass. I believe if you use CCI primers it should work just fine. Just PM with your mailing address and I'll try to get it out early next week.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH but I think I'll be alright if my buddy who owns a gun shop gets in what he was promised by his distributor. I really appreciate it but please give the bullets to someone who has no chance to get any.

Very nice guys. :) I ran out of all .223 bullets some time ago, but managed to score one 250 round box of the 55gr Nosler BT from MidwayUSA...I'll expend many for load development, and use the rest to hunt varmint with the vz-58, preferably on camera so I can show a "scary black rifle" going hunting. The rest of my .223 will stay in the baggies, nothing to replace them with yet.
I'll look into my bunch of gear and see if there's something I could pass on to someone who needs it, but I just gave away some stuff a few days ago.:)

K so I will admit, this is a little late but times like these I hate having things in my loading area that I don't see myself using anytime soon if at all. Also been a huge fan of this forum but always took and never gave. What I lack in knowledge in this area I can atleast repay in other ways. K I am done with my intro lol.

let me know if you fit the original posters category: You must NEED these. I don't NEED them so I would like to see them in good use.
Almost 100 hornady 55g FMJ {box looks full but I think I pulled some out for testing} and with them I can add some cases too. So all you need is primers and powder. {cases are once fired, cleaned, and some maybe all re-sized.

Hope I didn't break any forum rules with bring back an old thread this is my first post on this forum but been reading here since I started reloading.

Couple weeks ago I made trip through town buying all the lil'gun powder could find. Had every can in town when stopped at last store. Man comes in looking for lil'gun and days he had calls that morning and two shops had it in stock. He was now at third stop and no power. I asked what he wanted for and turned out he was a user not a hoarder so I told him I was one who sniped it all. Went out to truck and let him have a for what I paid to the penny. Had never met him before but we exchanged business cards. Just a few days later he called to say he had gotten a great deal on 1,000 .224 moly coated 70 grain bullets. He offered to split the grand down the middle at a price that would have been good five years ago. Today I called him to say had bought 1,000 midway 34 grain dogtown bullets and since he is not an internet guy, did he want half. He popped on them and asked if I had any 25-06 brass. As it is my favorite non wildcat I have plenty but tend to hoard it. I asked what he needed them for and he said to resize into 6.5mm-06. So I figured that was a worthy project and pulled him out 100 never been fired Remington cases. I had bought a thousand then weighed each case separating them into 100 count lots of matched weights. He was happy as a lark to get not only new cases but already matched. I asked about another need I had and he sent me to a friend of his who I just worked a trade of something I had for for what I needed. If we will all do this and try to stay out of the panic, we will be helping slow it down as the true consumers. I have been doing that here too. Hit me with a pm if you have a need. Will do what I can to help.

This is a great idea, I have several things that I have bought and cannot shoot because lack of ammo. Guess main thing is 223 bullets though.

Some of you are probably familiar with how retail works. Your retailer goes to shows like SHOT and orders a certain amount of items for the year based on past history. Then in spring distributor reps will come by and take pre-season orders for fall, in summer he comes by for winter pre-orders, etc. So usually there is one big order that they make yearly that comes at preset ship dates. Then quarterly they do preseasons for a few months into the future. This is how the distributors and manufactures stay on track with production. They have a little extra figured in for the small weekly and monthly special orders when each retailer has something outside normal and needs to order something extra.

Friend of mine has been working for six months to get a retail accessory business started. He currently manufactures steel targets, bullet traps, soft and hard gun cases, accessory cases, sewn gear, etc. Now anything from reloading, ammo, holders triggers. Anything but guns. He knows the guys in my co-op and seen how we buy primers in 25,000 count lots on regular basis and split them. He is looking to basically form a big shooters co-op. He gets a few hundred guys that order specific items on regular basis. We all give him our order for the upcoming year in Dec. He totals it all up and goes to SHOT show and orders our stuff. When we order we tell him how much to ship and when. You could have a monthly, quarterly or annual order. When it is time for your order to ship, he sends you an email notice and rings your credit card. Your needs are locked in beginning of every year and your order ships on schedule like a retailers would. With hundreds of us end users in the co-op he can power buy, add on a percentage and we get regular shipments and are not subject to price fluctuations or shortages. When a dealer pre-season orders for the year he gets his stuff. It is the sunrise runs that leave people in a lurch. The LGS gets cleaned out then he orders double what he expected on year. All the vendors do that and all the average gets gone so only pre orders ship and consumers pluck them up so fast the.run seems non ending. How many of you would be interested in joining a reloaders/ammo co-op like a.farmers co-op?

horsemen61,

I'm not saying I would choose wikipedia as a fount of knowledge or an oracle of wisdom, but in this case it presents an accurate description:

"Pay it forward" is asking the beneficiary of a good deed to "repay" it to others instead of to the original benefactor.

So, if you benefit from a good deed via person x, the idea is you repay a good deed to person y, or person z. The concept relies on the notion that eventually somebody in the chain of good deeds has the opportunity to pay a deed forward to person x. And the cycle continues.

There is no obligation per se to pay anything forward, but there is presumed responsibility to either take part in both the giving and the getting or to not take part at all. For some it may be a while before they have anything to offer, and that's ok as long as eventually they remember their responsibility to the cycle rather than simply take advantage of it.

I'm not saying anyone is taking advantage; I pay no attention to the score. I'm just reinforcing the concept.

You guys are the best, really.

I'm still neck deep in a sort of my reloading cave... its pretty deep in there.

About all I have at this point is that set of 25 slugs and wads for 12 ga... but I'm just now getting to the brass.

SSN Vet : That .357 mag ends up being 43 pieces, and its sitting here with your name on it, waiting for me to get paid so I can do the postage.

I know this .357 sig is here somewhere, I will find it !

I'll see what all else I can come up with.


Lets all keep working real real hard as we have been, on keeping the animosity at a minimum, and the positivity at a maximum !

This is a dark hard time for all of us gun geeks- lets keep being that little floating bright light, not some additional darkness, shall we ?

If you've received stuff without sending anything off- the appropriate thought we be to send off what you can, as soon as possible to those who need it.

Don't want to rain on the parade...but...

I got involved in this back a few years ago in another forum on this site. I had some NICE stuff, as in a complete press, and a 6x24x50 scope that I gave away. Just the shipping on the press was over $20 out of my pocket. Sold a bunch of complete die sets for $5 each, shipped.

Turns out some of the guys were just claiming stuff just to get, well, free stuff. One guy that tried to claim the scope sent me a snotty PM because he already had the scope sold.

Hope this all stays on the up and up. It's a great idea if everybody does the right thing.

for the right reasons.

and thats why we're doing it.

As I stated in the very beginning :

Not to have for stash, or to make that pile in your closet that much bigger- but someone who actually needs them and can't find any ?

None of us are the internet lie detector experts.

All we can do is try and help where we can, when we can, with what we can.

Shooting sports are one of those areas that its really bad to pick up bad karma in... You can have karmic blowback in the worst ways with a firearm in your hand. I'd never wish that on anyone- but we all know how the world works.

All we can do is hope everyone who is in need, is really in need- not in want.


I know that I have freely given- and have been freely given to.

I know that others here have given with the best of heart- and I would hate to belittle their efforts by saying or assuming it went to someone it shouldn't have.

This is a dark hard time for all of us gun geeks- lets keep being that little floating bright light, not some additional darkness, shall we ?

With that said- on with the giving !

This is a long shot but anyone got an old powder measure for rifle? I'm not sure my auto disk is going to gut it for some of my rifle cartridges. .270, 300 win mag, 7mm mag. Not looking for anything fancy just something to get me started. Even though I got my press as a Birthday gift it's still an expensive hobby to get into starting off and I'd prefer to not have to hand dip each charge if possible.

I have approx. 20 .270 Hornady Frontier brass and a smidge over 50 .40 cal pistol brass casings that I don't need if someone else can use them. I don't and won't own 40 and all my other 270 brass is Federal. 270 is brass I shot and 40 is range pickups.

Anytime I have given something, all I have asked for is for that person to do someone else a favor some day. Pass it on one day.
To me, the whole notion of "Pay it forward" is doing it from the heart voluntarily without expecting anything in return. It is not a "business model" as to how to get stuff for free or cheap and if that's your approach, then you are not truly paying it forward and you may not reap the true benefit of the "Pay it forward" process (Although paying it forward will often net much much more than a good business transaction. ;)).

My seeds for "Pay it forward" was planted by my shooting and reloading mentor who was a seasoned Bullseye match shooter I used to work with and a local bullet caster who supplied action pistol and Bullseye match shooters. They took me under their wing as an apprentice and taught me the essence of reloading match loads and producing accuracy. My mentor's motto was "Accuracy is everything and it results from consistency". I spent countless days and nights learning from them how bullets are made, how to load consistent match grade loads, how to shoot consistently and they did not allow me to pay for any of it.

When I insisted, they simply smiled and said they were also blessed by someone else who taught them what they know and asked me to pass it on when the opportunity presents. Over the years, I have been blessed to accumulate many 5 gallon buckets of brass and have spent several hundred dollars in shipping charges alone to send them to deserving recipients. When they also insisted on paying for postage or the various shooting/reloading stuff shipped to them, I simply asked that they do something nice for someone in their life who is deserving.

What about the money and time I spent? I have been blessed over the years by several hundred folds in what all I have paid it forward, not to mention the various friends I have made all over the country I hope to meet after my retirement in about 8 years. Things and people have come across my way in manners never imagined and in the end, paying it forward will give you a warm heart with blessing in your life.

Just look at us. While everyone is "hoarding" in panic, we are giving these valuable stuff away to strangers we never met! Imagine the shock some new guest to THR forum will be in reading this thread! In the "High Road" fashion, I say participate in this wonderful "Pay it forward" thread if it warms your heart to give. If you lack the funding for postage and the recipient will gladly pay for shipping, all's is good. If you can't reciprocate by giving reloading/shooting stuff for the thread in return, do something nice for someone else who is deserving. I am sure all things will work themselves out in the end.

I tell you blarby, with this thread you have already paid for the two Texan reloaders. :D

I have some .270 bullets would trade for something useful. Weird that I have never had an affinity for that caliber. Only 270 I ever enjoyed shooting is a friends custom .270 Weatherby magnum that was built by a custom smith who cut a match tight chamber with no traditional Weatherby freebore. It requires very specific powders, 26" barrel and holds 1" at 250 yards. Such a specific rifle it is a good thing both his kids and grand kids are all handloaders and know the idiosyncracies of this rifle. For safety the builder marked the barrel as simply 270 magnum wildcat.

This is an awesome idea. I would love to participate. The only downfall is I work away from home and will not be home to be able to send out anything for 6 weeks (end of March). That being said; to someone in true need I could spare some (20-30) once fired .308 brass, a box of 20rds .308 Federal Power Shok 150 grain soft point, and 100 CCI small pistol primers (local to Bangor/Brewer Maine area).

I am looking for anything related to .32S&W Long; ammo, brass, bullets (.312-.313 diameter preferably plated but lead would do) or bullseye powder. Also have a friend who could use nickel 9mm brass if anyone is offering any.

I apologize for the long delay in my ability to send stuff out but wanted to offer what I could to this cause. Awesome idea.

If anybody is in Washington on the Olympic Peninsula, is in dire need of primers and can't find any, PM me, I can meet up and give a hundred away without missing them, LR LP SR or SP.
If you absolutely can't find .308 bullets, I can send out a few 150gr. hornady round nose soft points, and a few 130 gr. hornady flat base soft points...enough to get meat on the table or an afternoon of loading and shooting.

Only thing I really need is .224 bullets...I can trade cast, sized or unsized and lubed with liquid alox lead handgun bullets... I have pure lead, Wheel weights, linotype lead, and monotype lead. Just tell me what combo or type you want
In the following sizes/calibers

.358 148gr tumble lube Lee or 150gr. Lyman wadcutters, both for .38spcl. I usually cast this in pure wheel weights.
.356 lyman semi wadcutter no gascheck, good mid speed .357 magnum bullet, needs magnum velocity for good accuracy though. not great for .38spcl. I usually cast this in ww/lino mix
9mm LEE tumble lube 124gr RN, good with ww/lino No sizing available, none of my guns needed it with this bullet. good with ww/lino
.401 LEE tumble lube 180gr flat nose. for 10mm and 40s&w. good with ww/lino
.429 LEE tumble lube 240gr. flat nose, no gas check. good .44 special bullet with wheel weights, good .44 magnum bullet with ww/lino up to about 1250 fps
.452 LEE tumble lube 200gr. SWC. feeds great in all three of my 1911's, 2 colt and 1 sig. good with Wheel weights

I'd really appreciate that. I'll dig around in the drawers and count the .500 S&W Magnum I have extra to offer.... Then I'll post up the number.

The 264 Win Mag now has a home. Rather have a rifle that it fits and load it myself but finally had to give up on having two of everything and focus on four each of what I really can actually use in a lifetime... Just looking at that brass always had me wondering, now the temptation will be gone for at least a moment. What are the odds I will get a rifle in that caliber in a trade now that the brass is gone? haha

The 300 Win Mag, 264 Win Mag and Norma 7.62x54 all has a new home. Now for my next one.

There are some rules to it. First you must be completely out of what I have to offer. If you have some of said item or something similar still stashed you do not qualify. Also you must have the brass, powder and primers to load them. Finally you must have the pistol to shoot them in. If your cast bullet vendor is not back-ordered or your LGS has them on the shelf you do not qualify. In other-words, unless you have a specific need for said items, are completely out, can't get any soon and have the means to use them you need to let them go to someone that does. Honor system folks...

130 45 caliber 185 grain cast SWC

OR....

130 .44 caliber 225 grain cast RNFP

These will be cast from wheel weights, sized and lubed with Lyman orange lube. This gives you 30 bullets to work up a functioning load then 100 to fill a range box full to go send down range. This offer brought to you by a po boy from Georgia. No warranty is implied or expressed. Use at your own risk. If you have never shot lead and gum up your barrel loading them too hot then its your fault, no replacement if any issues with materials or workmanship. No guarantee of expedited shipment. If they shoot poorly its your own fault as they all shoot fine for me. if you blow up your gun and kill or injure your fool self it is your fault for not having the sense to weigh them and read a loading manual. Blah, blah, blah.

The person that receives said items is not required to pay forward an item(s) to another THR patron if unable but is highly encouraged to throw something on the table if they can. I may or may not repeat this offer. Repeats may be different calibers and different weights. This is a one time offer for the first user that raises their hand. If you lose out, don't cry, just be on the lookout for my next offer. It may come at any time day or night. Good luck and remember the rules. No hoarders or persons without true need. I will send Elmer Fudd wabbit hunting in your back yard if you cheat and Buggs Bunny is my watchdog.

One box of Hornaday .227 cal. 70 grain spire points. These are for a .22 Savage Hi Power, not aware of any other rifles that shoot .227 diameter. Anyway, I think all 100 are in there, the box has been opened and taped shut. Trade me toys or pay the shipping and pay it forward to another here on THR, whichever makes you happy.

February 13, 2013, 05:16 AM
Since my post #190 does not seem to be helping anyone there is now a third option added to it make it a little broader.

130 .38/357 158 grain cast SWC

So now you have the choice between .38/357, .44 and .45 cast bullets. Same rules apply so somebody scarf them up.

Thanks returningfire. I hope he really does. He said he has roughly 100 pieces of brass and a pocket full of some cheap ammo. If not I still got a good deal. I only paid $150 for the whole package this past Saturday. I had been looking around for a hunting rifle for my 7 year old. He'll be 8 next hunting season. This one fell in my lap. Its a Remington 700 youth model. He loves shooting so I gotta get him used to shooting the gun. Hopefully he can handle the recoil. He loves shooting my ar. It can get aggravating shooting with him. He wants to use the spotting scope after every single shot to check his shot. But, he has gotten good and can outshoot a few friends of mine.

returningfire
February 14, 2013, 12:47 PM
Sounds like the makings of a future sniper. I'm sure he can step up from a 223 to a 243, just use light weight bullets for a while. Sounds like you scored on the deal, sometimes the stars just all line up perfectly. Anyway, if the guy doesn't come through let me know and I will send you what I have.

Havok7416, thank you for your kindness. I'm good since I don't shoot my 10mm much. Luckily i've got my 9's for sport shooting/range time. Trying to get enough to make a few test loads of self defense quality loads. Once I get the recipe the way I like it.. I'll hopefully find a couple hundred cases I can buy/barter and keep them on hand.

Now, if you have a need for something.. let me know. Would love to trade you for some 10mm. I might have stuff I could barter with. I still got a bucket full of brass to go thru.
