    Went to go load some 38 spl last night - discovered that I misplaced an entire container of prepped brass. 500 rounds - poof. they were primed and flared too.... no sign of them anywhere. seriously hoping I didn't accidentally toss them in with the brass I traded off awhile back. or worse yet, somehow dump them in the garbage by accident.

    Bummer. I can't find some Berrys 125 Gr .38 bullets. Maybe they are with your brass. If they show up let me know how they shoot for you. :)

    Primed too, real bummer.

    Don't feel bad, I went to relaod some 9mm and could not find a single case in my stash. I knew I had at least 3,000 cases but could not find them. Teared the whole reloading area appart looking for them. Then stopped and thought a while, yes they were just where I put them, behind my unloaded bullets, two coffee cans full of cases, now how did I miss that??

    When my primers started disappearing, it turned out to be my teenager shooting wax bullets in the basement. By the hundreds.

    Maybe they will turn up in time. Amazing how we misplace things from time to time.

    A mind is a terrible thing to lose
    The only good part is finding stuff you forgot you bought. I found 1000 jacketed .357 under my bench.Sorta remember the one 500 box.

    Maybe they are the same place as my dozens of pairs of pliers and 1/2" wrenches are.

    I usually lose things after/while "organizing". But I recently "found" two forgotten bricks of .22s. Then when checking my .38 special brass to do a trade I found out I had about double what I expected.

    Does anybody keep a running inventory written down, or just go by sight/memory?

    I'm told as we get older our memory is the second thing to go. I forgot what the first was...

    I never lose or misplace anything in my loading area. This is due to the fact that my wife doesn't know enough about it to do me any favors, or apply her strange relocation and non-remembering techniques.:D

    Check your range bag. You probably loaded them with some sweet 158's and they are ready to go!. well I tried

    Are they in your hand? Happens to me when looking for sunglasses.

    You got that right, if I leave anything in the kitchen or living room it's a guarantee I will never see it again....

    I'm still looking for some .45 auto brass I'm missing but the stuff I've found while looking for it makes it okay in my book.:cool:
