That 60 for 22s
20 bucks a box for bird shot
15 for Hmrs
The last I bought was $5.89 at Dunhams .
In walmart yesterday. Winchester super x 22lr for $40 and change for 300. No.
I don't have thousands and thousands of rounds like some.
But, I have enough to do me for a long long time.
I'm finished playing this sucker game. Others can play on if they want.
This fool is finished. If it's not Within Reason. No Sale.
Okay, I bought my MIL a box of .380 and sent it to her.
I would buy some SP primers if I could find some, but I'll survive a while with the components I have.
120 rds of S&B 8mm Mauser, probably 400rds of WMR, 1 box .380, 100 rd box of .45acp, 300 rds of 7.62x39, 200rds of 7.62x54r, 1 box 7.7 Arisaka, 1 box of 6.5 Arisaka, 1 old box of 25-20, 1200ish rds of .22lr, 120 rds of M1 30-06, 2 boxes of Federal .30-30 Hammerdown, 500ish rds of 12ga target loads.
I'm getting a Browning BDA in .380 and only have maybe 3 boxes of ammo so now I gotta stuck up on .380
750 Rem 9mm 115 gr fmj.
I bought one box of .380 at my LGS last month, then today:
1) Underwood .380 ACP hardcast
2) Underwood .38 Special +P hardcast
.38 Special +P 158gr. Keith Hi-Tek Coated Hard Cast Hunting Ammo (underwoodammo.com)
Look at the specs on those. Bestial.
3) Underwood .32 ACP Extreme defender
150 - 5.7x28
Bought mainly for the cases. To reload.
Seems to work OK. It's one of three calibers I don't reload for; .22 LR, .223, and .45 acp.
I have plenty of powder, plenty of bullets, plenty of lead to make more bullets, plenty of cases, and plenty of primers in everything except small pistol. I had about three years worth of shooting saved up, and it's going on two years since I've seen small pistol primers for sale. Getting nervous.
Not sure I want to load 223 again after having only loaded straight walled cartridges for quite a few years.
I won't be buying shotgun shells, I sold my Shotgun after a shooting buddy died from Covid.
Haven't bought much factory ammunition in several decades other than .22RLR/22Mag and 12ga shotgun shells. I reload everything else.
I will occasionally buy some of factory ammunition when I buy a firearm in a new to me caliber, like when I bought a BlackHawk in .30Carbine last year.
I do buy a couple of boxes of Winchester Supreme Ballistic Silvertips in 7mm Magnum when needed because it is just amazingly accurate in my rifle and is very effective on game animals.
Mostly Walmart…bought 6 boxes of .22LR (two separate visits a few weeks apart) of Federal 40gr, 325 rounds, for $22 per box.
Also ordered 3 boxes of .410 #9 from Midway. Cost me $70 total delivered but it was to trade to a friend for 3 boxes of Rem Corelok 170gr 30-30.
Finally, buying 50 rounds of 30-30 for $60 from a small local ammo maker. All new components and commercial grade equipment. A “friend of a friend” kinda deal, but my friend checked and not some guy on a Dillon in his garage. I’ll give him a shot.
I saw that Academy had the inexpensive Aguila but it is over 100 miles to the nearest store. They also had it for internet sales but with a 4 box limit and 8 bucks shipping, not exactly a screaming deal, so I let it go. Evidently their free shipping with a $25 purchase is gone.
