    Ok guys let me paint the picture for you yesterday I happen to go to bass pro with the misses and while there she mentions my bday is coming up and I saaaaay "oh yeah I hadn't even thought about it :evil: " she said well look around I might get you something I say ok and then and there I spot them on the shelf staring at me so lovingly a set of lee 40 S & W dies I said well I have only been looking to find a set for oh I dunno five months so she scoops them up and said ok well their is one is their anything else and I said well I could use a box of ammo for my marlin in 35 Remington so we go to get it and before we get their she spies 380 ammo and she said can I buy some I said sure honey she just got a sig p238 so we picked up three boxes anyways I call my father who has a good friend who has been looking for some 380 ammo all he could find is the expensive jhp stuff his wife wants to practice so he calls him who called me and said I will take all three boxes and I sold it to him for a very fair price anyways my folks drive up with the money to see me in Springfield well after the deal the little lady said hey can we run to bass pro again I would like to buy just one box of 380 and I said sure she is a keeper in my book so we go no more 380
    Well for kicks I go into the reloading isle I found a bag of 380 brass but I've had no luck finding dies unless I wanna pay 60 plus bucks for six months i looked well I bend down to look at the 40 dies and back waaay back behind them is a box of dies all dust and upside down i grab it and get an excited feeling but prepared for the worst I flip it over 380 ACP I was ecstatic to say the least thank you for reading my book lol

    It pays to dig.

    I find all sorts of stuff on the backs of shelves.

    I'm gonna have to make a trip to Springfield. I haven't been there in a couple of years, and I wasn't reloading at that time, and its not to far a trip from me in Arkansas, plus I have a birthday coming up, hmmmmm, Cabelas in Rogers, swing up to Bass Pro, hehehe....

    Actually, I've been hinting to the bride, that I want the Dillion Square B for pistol rounds...

    Happy birthday/belated birthday btw

    Oh yes so worth it as there are also several decent lgs and pawn shops academy as well and several Walmart's to look for cheaper ammo
