Some days I wonder. For the life of me I cannot remember buying them but I found 2 more boxes of 2000 9mm 124 grn Rem JHP's. It was just what I was looking for since I finished off the last box of 2000 of them. I must have ordered 4 of them and only remembered getting 2.

I also found I have a huge stash of 200 grn 40 cal bullets in both JHP and lead and at least 10,000 180 grn lead SWCs. And that box of 2000 158 grn 357 JHP's is finally on the correct shelf.

I need to develop a better storage system for the bullets instead of where they fit on the rack.

Well back to the press. I have plenty of 9mm bullets, powder and primers so it is time to "get after it".

There ya go. :) I ran out of 9mm JHP some time ago, can't find any more, so I just warm up the lead pot and get to loading. :)

Peter, you seem to have all good problems.

I would love to find a couple more thousand jacketed or plated bullets but unfortunately for me, I have a good inventory system. I know where they all are.

I've been firing up the lead pot these days also to take the strain off my plated bullet supply.

Peter, you simply "invested" in some precious metal and now reaping the benefits. :D

You probably made at least 10 - 30%+ in return on your investment. ;)

I hate to admit that a casual estimate shows I have about 90,000 bullets stockpiled. I had no idea I had so many purchased. I just kept ordering them when sales came up and said, "some day I will use them".

Well when I get the chance I get them loaded and shot. I did about 2000 9mm's today.

I need to get the 9mm's cleaned off so I can load 357's again. I am down to 500 357 Mags and only 300 38/44's. That is embarassing!

Well everybody has to have a goal to shoot for and if you are like me I am always about 1K behind what I want loaded and available to shoot in various ammo boxes at any given time.:o At least we have the components to load up what we need. There are many on here that lack enough supplies to load anything these days. I even notice that the local range has no OF brass lying around lately. Hope this stuff gets better soon.:scrutiny:

I only processed and loaded about 500 44 MAG's today so I am also a bit behind.

Just think how much money you save by reloading! :D

Not everything about getting old is bad! I found $200 stuck in a shoe in my closet and have no memory of puting it there. How many of you all have found $200 lately?

Back in the day before direct deposit I found a pay check in my gun safe. It had been there for 6 months or so. I quickly went out and bought a new shootin ' iron. And I was happy.
