Help me spend $50 at Gander Mtn

In-Law gave me $50 gift card to Gander Mountain for Christmas. I'm not looking to spend much more than that. I'm mostly looking for reloading-related items, but I'm open to other suggestions. I reload 9mm and 40S&W. I also shoot 223/5.56 but I don't reload for that yet. I've started casting for 9mm and plan to continue casting. As far as reloading tools go, I'm pretty much barebones (old dial calipers, cheap scale). I do have a chronograph but that's the only 'luxury' item I have. What new tool or upgrade should I get?

Forgot to mention: I have a tumbler already too. If I didn't have one yet, that would be a no-brainer.

Hornady headspace gauge with five pack of inserts included is about $35. You could get the caliber specific bullet comparators that will work with the anvil base, or whatever they call it that comes in headspace gauge kit. Same red thing with brass screw holds headspace gauges and bullet comparators. Lots of great info awaits you if you have these tools to attach to your calipers. Namely, headspace and ojive to base measurements. Great info for rifle rounds.


Myself, I would get circus peanuts.

I've always thought that I would eventually, but I'm in no hurry. I suppose it would be a good thing to get comfortable doing and get a good stock of supplies in case of another shortage. I shoot pistols WAY more than I shoot rifles at the moment.

I was thinking perhaps case gauges for 9mm and 40S&W would be a good idea, but I didn't see them listed on the website :-(

$50 is probably about enough to buy a box of 50 .45acp FMJ at Gander, no?

Yeah - they're pretty steep on pricing of guns and ammo for sure. Maybe I can sell it for $40 cash

Send me a $50 gift card and I'll do all the work for you. Thank me later.
