  1. Reloading Data for SHTF Handloads - Post Your Loads!

    Firearms General Discussion
    I know I'm not the only guy who like to squirrel away some good handloads for the big day. Trouble is, typical commercial +p type load data is almost never listed by manufactures. This is most common with handgun calibers. What loads have you worked up for your firearms for your SHTF stash? I am...
  2. Gunbroker Sale to CA - Are People Always This Retarded?

    Firearms General Discussion
    After buying for years, I finally decided to list something on Gunbroker. I've had half a case of Wolf .223 collecting dust and figured it was a good time to get rid of it. Winning bidder is from LA. I explicitly listed the CA, NY, and the other communist states as unable to ship to. Does this...
  3. Has the ammo shortage affected your target practice?

    Have you been cutting back on target practice due to the ammo scarcity? Or has it not affected you?
  4. Anyone ever used the LEE PRECISION Hand Press

    Firearms General Discussion
    I have looked at this before. Looks tedious, but would be portable and/or take up very little space. Anyone actually used one? I would like to be able to dip my toe into reloading, but have no space for a full setup. LEE PRECISION Hand Press https://amzn.to/2WLU4iu
  5. The ammo shortage is spectacular

    Firearms General Discussion
    I was driving to Bethlehem, PA and stopped at the Cabela's in WV to see the gun and ammo shortage for myself. Basically no handgun ammo other than a little 22LR, a few 32ACP, one box of .40 auto ball and some big bore revolver stuff for bear hunting. They had some hunting ammo for rifles. If...

  8. What's Your Favorite .22 Plinking Ammo?

    Firearms General Discussion
    I am always tempted by the advertisements for cheap .22 LR. I have found however that the quality control varies greatly between companies. Midway is running a sale on Rem Thunderbolt bricks for $14.99 and free shipping. Tempting, but I won't touch anything Remington rimfire related with a 10 ft...

  13. 10.5" AR-15 Pistol Defensive Ammo Options

    Firearms General Discussion
    Alright, I have my 10.5" barrel AR-15 in 5.56x45mm, and it is a blast to shoot. I'm used to full-length rifles, but with such a short barrel, which ammo do you all use for "defensive" situations? I've been told ballistic tip 4-legged varmint loads work. What say you all?
  14. Cartridge collecting anyone?

    Firearms General Discussion
    I looked around and hadn't found too much on cartridge collecting as a hobby. I recently started and have around 50 different examples of different cartridges and I'm just now starting to look around at gun shows. I'm not currently doing headstamps as of now, I'm trying to gather as many...

  19. What Ammo to invest in NOW

    Firearms General Discussion
    Aside from investing in silver, and the obvious preps, I invest in ammunition. It is part fun, part obsession, and part financial investment. I started this maybe 4-5 years ago. In that 5 years, ammo has done VERY well. During the panic buying, I sold off a portion of my 9MM and .22 ammunition...
  20. Ammo for AR-10 / similar

    Rifle Forum
    What kind of ammo have you found works best (most consistent/accurate) in a shorter barrel (16-18") semi auto, specifically AR-10s and derivatives? Would you rather have deep stores of a lighter 145-149gr round or a heavier 168-175gr round? Rather have a little more of a decent round like...
