I'm going to stock up on .30/06

If there is a .223 famine, I'll still have a viable rifle that fires from a non-threatening appearance, and I won't need those awful large magazines.

In the current climate combined with the upcoming elections, I think it'd be smart to address any gun-related item shortages that we might find ourselves in. Prices are surprisingly good right now on a lot of things, and no telling what the future holds.

I wouldn't mortgage my house or anything like that to do so, but I'd be looking at things I may be lacking with a careful eye.

Stocked up on handgun components an 223,need to pick up some more Sierra 168gr. bullets for the M1A. Only 4 or 5 bricks of 22 but not paying high prices for more.

I could always use more ammo... Probably layer in some more 7.62x54R and 9x18...I'm pretty good for everything else I run.

my wife is way too cheap to buy loaded ammo (other than .22lr of course). She has this guy who'll cast bullets for nothing and she'll soon have a progressive reloading press.

I just got my Lyman 160 grain .30/06 moulds in from Buffalo Arms in the mail yesterday. Looks like I have to set up time in August for more load development.

Well, I want to use my US Army Rifle, Model 1917 in a match next April that requires cast lead bullets so the targetry does not get damaged. I enjoy the time I spend on the range working loads up and the competition is FUN! To each his own, have fun with your airsoft.

Actually with "Sleepy Joe" being elected, I think he will go after 5.56mm rifles before he goes after .30-06 ones.

I wonder if the wife ever got a progressive loading press?

Load development is always a good thing.

I'm doing it right now, because I couldn't find the powder I normally use.

This is for the .308, nice accurate loads. I guess I forgot that I'm supposed to be so cheap I only shoot milsurp ball...

so just how many names does Boati have on one board?

it's obvious they're all the same person. It is not a glowing testament to his intelligence.

Seriously, do you realize that you used Melvin's name & the word "intelligence" in the same paragraph?

Sometimes two at a time so he can talk an answer himself.

When for a brief time he actually had his own forum.
Although admin'd by someone else.
He did just that so he'd have "followers" that agreed with him.
