    Yes and can be traded for anything needed, the slow way or the fast way....

    I don't think I ever got back with a RANGE REPORT but both guns (K98 and Lorcin .380) fire fine with the new ammo pictured. CORRECTION: the curved, aftermarket safety noted above is for SCOPE clearance, not bolt clearance.

    The Lork is adequately accurate at 15' and we were able to hit the black in a bullseye at that distance. Burned about 1/2 the box of .380 "testing" it. I don't know if I mentioned it here, but that gun empty weighs MORE than a small Taurus 9mm I have with 12+1 in it! :eek:

    The K98 is in definite need of a better scope instead of the BB gun-quality 60 year old specimen it has on it now. :rolleyes: We were able to hit the gong at 100yds with regularity but I was not able to get it onto 8.5x11 paper at that distance and I hadn't brought a spotting scope to check POI. I have a new, cheapy Burris? 3-9x40 I picked for $10 after rebate I am going to mount for the next outing.

    Fired one of the boxes of new ammo and retained all of the cases for future re-use. Also "clicked" and waited through 40-50 rounds of the aforementioned duds and the bullets have since been pulled from the Berdan-primed steel cases. Still have about 40 or so "duds" to go during the next range outing.

    NOTICE! 1 or 2 of the "duds" actually fired! :eek: So let this be a lesson to those of you when "processing" dud ammo in this fashion to ALWAYS POINT THE FIREARM IN A SAFE DIRECTION!

    This was also the outing where the Beretta .40 experienced multiple crap reload malfunctions. More bullets I'll be pulling...

    This is some bulk .45 acp and .45-70 brass, and jacketed slugs + 5000 asstd primers. I got this all about half price from auction.

    I also picked up four boxes of Federal .30-30 flat nosed 150 grain game loads at Walmart. I still haven't made a really good .30-30 cartridge myself, but I've loaded 45s successfully.

    Hopefully I will get set up to load the 45-70s soon but in the meantime I've got 120 rounds to keep me busy.

    I am also anxious to mold some shotgun slugs from my new Lee slug molds.

    But there's a lot of Charity sale stuff that needs to disappear from my garage before I have the room to even get started right now.

    You'll be glad you did very soon.

    You'll either be sitting on a goldmine from buying so cheap while you could, or you'll be glad you did it because you find yourself needing it.

    Regardless, either are good reasons.

    I have always been very motivated by my belly though. I worry about what is to come.

    My Dad used to tell me there were two classes of people.

    The haves.

    And the have-nots.

    Then he would always ask me which I wanted to be in.

    He was wise beyond his years.

    I wish I had more ammo. Tight budget and all.

    You know the two things I have never heard anyone say?

    I think I have too much money.

    I think I have too much ammo.

    Isn't that the truth. Never quite enough of either.

    People were talking about having gold and silver during a "time of need" and I suggested they/we can never have enough ammo in our portfolios... :)

    And you could use rounds of ammo as "change" for a gold bar. :quote: Take care. Tom Worthington

    Use pure lead, not wheel weights.

    I picked up 500 rounds of .22 lr today. It was sub sonic by cci, 70 bucks. I can shoot my revolver and single shot rifles quite a bit now.

    I bought 100 rounds of 12 gauge birdshot shells (online) today. 39 cents each. Not what I wanted to pay, but less than it would have cost me just a week ago. They will be burned up in a couple of weeks, but that gets me a couple of weeks closer to a recovery. Take care. Tom Worthington

    Ammo is the new currency.

    I just traded a mixed box of 357 magnum and 38 spc and a coat to a used gasoline powered tiller.

    True story brothers.

    I kinda hated to let the ammo go, but our tine bearings are gone and can't be replaced because of how the tiller is welded together and it's just a matter of time before the bar bends when it hits a rock and is finished altogether.

    So, I got the tiller while I could because things are not going to be getting better anytime soon. Thankfully, I have the stuff to make my own to replace the ones I traded yesterday. Special thanks @nitesite
