    As stated, don't buy 1000 bullets of any one type until you know how it shoots. I had a 250 box of Nosler 135, worked up my first 2 recipes, then bought another 250 of Nosler 150 gr just because it came up on my Natchez notifications. I wish I had shot that 135 first, because I really love that bullet and would rather have another 250 of that than 150 grain. But who knows? Maybe I will like the 150 grain even more.

    Have you ever gone to a used car lot and asked the question: How much should I spend? The response is always: How much have you got?

    Just get 500 or 1K of 124/125gr jacketed or plated round nose of whatever brand you can find and be done with it. Sheesh... if a nine doesn't like RN then something's wrong with it.

    Pound of Bullseye, 1K of SPP and a bag o' range pickup brass.

    Done deal. ;)

    It is possible to overthink some things...

    I own 2 SIG 2022s and they will feed rocks. :D

    Personally, unless I stumbled on a smokin' deal I would not be buying huge quantities of anything till prices stabilize.
