    I need a FFL to Recieve

    Pluff Mud Trading Post (Kerry Vickers) in Archdale. http://fflgundealers.net/pluff-mud-trading-post-llc.html Says he's closed but he still does transfers. Requires CWP. $25 inbound. Don't know if he charges $ to ship out an item to another FFL. Edited to add: I've used him a few times; he's...

    Covid Pricing

    Naturally, after I wrote that I got a pretty good deal on an M&P22 fullsize on gunbroker. :shrug:

    Boggy Head

    It would be easy enough to station a ranger there, but not go to the lengths that Twin Ponds did (and hopefully not be as restrictive)

    WTB: small amount of .380ACP for testing

    I’ll pm you when we’re back in town (Monday) I’m interested.

    Bulge Busting 9mm

    In the USAF if something squeaked by a go-nogo gauge that was a fail. Is saving $1 worth your life? But, maybe less applicable with range ammo... as long as you're not practicing CAR or other close-body shooting drills, a case rupture shouldn't do much besides scare you - if your gun is all...

    Ammunition for sale

    I'd be interested in the .30-06 and .30-30 if you're considering selling individually.

    WTB: small amount of .380ACP for testing

    Clicker came through. Leaving open, still interested in range ammo, Federal HST, or Precision One XTP for reasonable rates. Can trade for brass in a few calibers, some projectiles (think I've got 230g .45 left).

    WTB: small amount of .380ACP for testing

    I appreciate that - no worries. Busy few weeks, I know.

    WTB: small amount of .380ACP for testing

    I am. Just want to test the bodyguard I bought.

    Bulge Busting 9mm

    What you need is a piece of scrap steel with a precise hole drilled in it - the size of a non-bulged fired case. If pickup brass fits through, Good to Go. If not, scrap it. I've got 2-3 burst cases that popped at the bulge-line after 1 reload from new, and not hot reloads either. Just an old...

    What should I be paying

    You can equally blame Twitler for 4 years of stoking fears that CivWar2 was upon us. Which, to be fair, it may well be. But there's enough fearmongering (IE, plain old lying) on both sides. :rolleyes:

    Bulge Busting 9mm

    I'd be leery of using bulged 9x19 brass. Max CIP = 35k; .45 max CIP = 19,900 or 21,000 depending on resource. Stuff is cheap enough/common enough to discard/recycle and put that money into your new ammo fund. But, if you must, you must. In that case I'd call Lee or RCBS and ask their tech...

    Ccw ammo

    Thanks for the kind words. I re-read what I wrote back then, and I still stand by all of it. Thankfully in 7 years I've not had to test it, even though I've expanded my carry options some. M&P Shield 9, M&P9L with 124g HSTs and (as of last week) S&W .380 bodyguard with P1 or Lehigh when I can...

    What should I be paying

    I recall paying about $35/pound for benchmark. It's not the cheapest powder, but works very well in my 6.8SPC loads. Right now, I can't even buy reloading *dies* for any remotely modern caliber. This is crazy.

    WTB: small amount of .380ACP for testing

    Maybe 10-15 rounds? I'll buy a box of 50 if you have it, but don't want to commit to a ton of this stuff if I don't buy the gun. Prefer 90ish grain FMJ - regular training rounds.

    Covid Pricing

    I get that; my wife and I have discussions about that sort of thing now that I don't have to save pennies (or sell other guns) to afford a new one. I got her on board with the need-a-.22-training-pistol idea, but both my handguns now are M&Ps and the M&P 22 fullsize are simply unobtainium. I'm...

    ShootzenFest?

    Huh. I figured all the tire shops were selling those to recyclers.

    Covid Pricing

    To be fair, PSA did have a 200-round box of 6.8 for under $1/round... but just under. I think I've got enough brass/components/loaded rounds for security purposes so I didn't grab it - but yeah. Last time I bought carry ammo...

    ShootzenFest?

    Clicker - where do you get your lead supplies? Do you own a Gerald's or something?

    ShootzenFest?

    LOL. All my stash is Obama - era - I bought mil primers and Benchmark powder when/where-ever I could find it. For a newbie reloading (Blackbeard) the Lee kit for about $150 + their book is a good place to start. It isn't perfect, but will safely reload many many rounds and let you figure out...
