ammo desperation...
 
you know there is a major shortage when I get ecstatic to see steel cased Tula Ammo in 9mm and buy it without hesitation... :shocked:

not saying it's bad but far from the brass cased American made stuff I prefer for my Beretta 92FS

I Thank God
 
that I started reloading in 1978. :cool:

The wife and I have bought exactly 4 boxes of ammo since October. 2 boxes of Blazer Al cased 9mm Makarov and 2 of the same in 10mm. just so we could shoot a bit without having to worry about collecting the "brass" in the wet grass.

Between stocking up for a long time and reloading we are comfortable. I can't understand anyone not prepared for shortages and political fluctuations.

I have stashed a fair amount, but don't want to dive into it if we have a similar social breakdown to nations in the E.U.; I don't reload due to financial constraints and the lack of skills/knowledge to do it correctly :dunno:

Reloading is easy to learn. :cool:

I have kept a sufficient supply of premium JHP self-defense rounds for the two handgun calibers I own as well as for the one rifle and one shotgun. I also keep a supply of range ammo but in recent months I've decided to hold these in reserve until more ammo becomes available. The premium-to-range ratio is approximately 2.5:1

So have I. For my G17, I have five 17-shot magazines loaded with WW/Fed 115gr JHP +P+ rounds.

It is easy to not go shooting here in Winter VT - the range is covered with snow!

Lord, I hope so. 80 rounds of 9mm 115gr +P+ rounds ought to make an impression.

The trick is finding components.

I was in Charleston, WV on buisiness and scored 6 boxes of zinc coated steel cased 9mm, it's imported stuff(forgot the name), and 4 100rd boxes of American Eagle .40. They would only let me have 10 boxes. I then went to the Gander Mountain next door and picked up a 450 round bulk box of .45 ACP, I left happy.

I don't see this changing in the immediate future so if this hasn't convinced even the most slothful of reloading naysayers then I don't know what will.

SCmasterblaster 03-01-2013 18:11

I have 580 rounds of 9x19 ammo left. I'm saving it 'til Summer.

I agree. It's convinced me. Starting behind the eight ball but I still see a good amount of components on the shelf here and I have tubs and tubs of brass. Should be fun to get into. Better late than never I guess. :dunno:

Tubs and tubs of brass - all from your shooting? That's a lot of shooting! :cool:

You must have excellent back muscles after picking up all of this brass.
