a range that doesn't allow reloads? if you used the same componets to reload, how could they tell??
They can't. Just smile nicely as you make your way to the line and dispose of the evidence into their backstop.
When you start shooting better than anyone else.
Well, if you're shooting El_Nino's reloads the explosions will be a dead giveaway.
They often check the box, so put the reloads in a factory box. Obviously if you are shooting lead bullets & the box says FMJ, dead give away, not to mention the smoke.
I had one fellow at the range I shoot at exam my ammunition for about three minutes straight. He did not recognize the Mfg. Prvi Partizan. He was sure they were reloads.
I had one gal grab my Wheeler screw driver box and demand to see what was in it, implying it could contain reloads...
Why do they give a crap?
I can tell a reload from a factory round 95% of the time, but I've had a lot of practice. I'll bet joe butwipe couldn't.
It's mostly about the gun range trying to sell you their ammo. There is also a liability factor, we do live in Kommifornia after all, but some reloaders, as we know, just don't get it right sometimes. The resulting KB could injure another shooter, results, the gun range gets sued. Yes it's stupid, but I just don't shoot at such ranges.
Cosmo huh? How metro of you.
Nice living in the sticks. Rarely have another human present at the range. Open the lock on the gate, drive in and have an enjoyable relaxing shoot. Hot coffee and doughnuts with the wife help.
I was thinking maybe they want the "once fired" brass to sell. Reloaded ammo more than likely isn't once fired any longer.
Glad I don't have to deal with or associate with such people.
Yep same here.
Private range no one around to bother me.
hmm thats what I thought, I just don't want to get busted and possibly get banned from the range-that would suck. Im alittle afraid. maybe I could claim ingnorance.
22.9 million acres of BLM land. I don't need no stinking range.
Depends on how clean and sorted your brass is, and how closely they look.
Obviously, dingy mixed brass in a ziplock, they're going to think "reloads".
Super clean Win brass in a Winchester value pack, with "normal" looking FMJ bullets, they're going to have to really know their stuff to tell the difference. I've gotten away with it.
If there's any doubt, and they see you running around picking up (and saving) your brass, that may also tip them off.
They're not getting my brass, I pick most of it up. I use my reloads at another range.
I wouldn't go to such a range.
Exactly. A range dictating to me my ammo or whether I keep my brass just won't get my business. If I have to drive 3hrs to shoot the way I want, so be it. Besides, most indoor ranges do not allow holster work or rapid fire, for good reason, but that is what it is. If I am at a range I want to train or practice, not just plink.I certainly want the brass I brought, after all, I paid for it.
