    negatif … in the cratridge thread I talk about my reasons for returning to the military cratridges … and that is the depth and breath of the factory ammo supply.

    I work in the day and I’m trying to build up a cattle business on the side … and I shoot at night … so TIME is critical asset. And my goal is 200 live fire rounds per week and if I was to reload that many I would have to back off on either the day job or the cattle business or shooting … further current factory cratridges like FGMM 7.62×51 175gr SMK or FGM 7.62×67 190gr meet my requirements for sub 1.0 MOA results.

    Well Wigman, we all have our opinions….mine is …ALWAYS be able to have reloading to fall back on…I remember a time when .22’s were “unavailable”

    You stockpile primers … I stock pile finished rounds … we both stockpile 🙂

    You might be able to make bullets and powder from other materials .. and you might always be able to find usable brass, but you need primers.

    As to .22LR .. I recall (like 2013 maybe after) when .22LR prices went up. .22LR Ammo was available, but prices were higher than many people wanted to pay. So people said “.22’s were unavailable” … though actually they were available, just not at a price some wanted to pay.

    Also I suspect in a few years (about 3.5) my priorities will shift and I will then start to reload … going for a balance (depending on the cartridge) of cost savings and consistency.

    I very much enjoy reloading, time is my big problem with that. And since I need to use a ‘baseline’ for rifle testing, we typically only use factory loads. Though I am setup for reloading and I especially like developing special purpose loads.

    Applied Ballistics and Shooter are the two I’ve used. I’ve seen a Winchester on their website but that was too light for actual use … more of a teaser.

    I will google around.
