  • Bullets are getting expensive.

    I ordered two boxes of Hornaday XTP 9mm 124g, and two boxes of 6.5 Swede bullets today. Total, with shipping, expended a whole $100 bill.

    Oh, well. Better to have it than to need it and not, right?

    The annoying part is that I set out to order some XTP in 9x18, and they were already out of that, 24 hours after notifying that they had it in stock.



    But I got me some boolets, which is always a good thing.

    I've pretty much now got all the fancy bullets I need. I'm going back to ordering the plated Berrys, or Rainer, or Montana Gold, or suchlike by the thousand.



    Other than the 9x18, of course, which I still don't have any of.......

        It's what I claim they got if I missed the first time.

        That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

            If you like Gold Dots Jake has some pulls in stock at a good price. http://www.shop.rmrbullets.com/9mm-355_c12.htm You can ask him if he has a source for .363 bullets.

            I got some of his "seconds" plated .45ACP bullets real cheap. Couldn't find anything wrong with them except some slight discoloration/spots on a few. And I mean a few out of 1k.

              Last 100 30 cal 150 grain soft points I bought cost me 27 bucks and that didn't include shipping. Hunting only, 100 bullets would last me five years but trying load for SHTF it gets dang expensive.

                a old timer once told me;

                "if you wanna play you gotta pay".

                what I find funny and I LMAO at these people, are the ones who own macine guns, then they whine and cry about the cost of ammunition.

                  I've always said that F/A weapons sound really fun, if someone else is paying for the ammo. If I am, they sound really expensive to play with.



                  I'm the guy who could burn up $100 worth of ammo in a day back in the late years of the last millennium, when it was still dirt cheap.

                  Nowadays? I don't think about it when I'm at the range, because it would probably spoil my fun. The rest of the time, I just keep buying more ammo and components, so I don't have to think about it at the range.

                    I used to think a Chinese MAK was good for one thing, a way to burn up cheap Chinese ammo! Never did manage to destroy one but wasn't because I didn't try. I recall we were paying 58 bucks, wholesale, for a 1400 round case on strippers. Now those stripper clips are going near a buck each.
