    I have three bullets for my machinegun, one shotgun shell and 2 rifle bullets.

    That's probably more than I'll need in an emergency. I'm good for a while

    Under twenty rounds of heavily corroded ammunition? First, a tumbler won't clean them up. Loaded ammo just sits in the bottom of a vibratory tumbler and basically doesn't do much. Second, it's maybe a few bucks worth of ammo, and besides you didn't have to pay anything for it.

    If I had a bullet puller I would maybe try to salvage the bullets but I really think I'd just chuck all of them. I say march on without them.

    You will love the 590. I have several handguns and long guns but Chief among them for home defense is a 590 8+1 w/ ghost rings that hangs inside the bedroom closet.

    And I think it deserves mention that you recognize the accuracy and versatility of a rifle chambered in .243 Winchester. It's almost a perfect cartridge throughout much of North America. What it isn't "suggested" to accomplish the '06 rifle can be counted on leave no doubt.

    Here's a picture of my new and still meager stockpile on my washing machine, no less. ;)

    I think everything is pretty self-describing save for the box of Hornady "Critical Defense" shells. I picked these up in Washington and am anxious to try them out for the job of the ones I'm going to keep ready at all times.

    The thing I wonder about, being new to the shotgun world, is... what's the goop on the Remington shells? I haven't fired those yet but am not too worried about them. Should I be? :oops:

    You know... I have no clue, but its not the first time I've seen it, though never on my own.

    I too am anxious to know about the Hornady Critical Defense!!!

    I've seen it before...it's excess buffer material from the shell when the crimp was made. Nothing to worry about...

    It is actually a sealer so the buffer material doesn’t come out....hand loaders use things like nail polish and Elmer’s glue stick.
    Buffer is very fine and will rattle out of even a good crimp with enough time riding in a truck or horse ….atv.
