    Junk powder makes darned good fertilizer.

    I'll probably just toss the whole jar on a bonfire some night when I've been drinking

    That's what I was thinking. Gunpowder is high in nitrogen.

    A great but short bon fire when lit in a coffee can at night, make sure your neighbors know so that they don't call the fire department.

    I was joking, I doubt I'll throw it in a fire, there's a lot of pistol/shotgun powder in there. I just need to find some flowers to put it on that the dogs can't get to.

    loaded a couple hundred 32 ACP, a couple 100 25 ACP, 300 6.8 SPC and some 6.5 Creedmoor. For Father's Day my youngest daughter sent me 200 new 44 cases and 25 new 458 Lott cases.

    Got in 3 boxes of some Hornady .30 cal 110 grainers for my .300 AAC. Ordered some more Flitz media additive and NuFinish I use in my vibratory tumbler to put a final polish on.

    Went to the range with a coworker who went through ammo like he had a sponsor, and doesn't reload, so I'll be sorting through the 350+ rounds that he shot plus the 150+ that I shot. Mostly 9mm and 5.56.

    Sorted through all of the brass, deprived the stuff I'm keeping, ended up with 4 loads worth to tumble. Chopped down the 5.56 that's acceptable for blackout, keeping the rest for 223 now that I have a 10.5" upper to feed.

    My nephew is like that. Of course he also seems to expect ME to pay for all the ammunition we go through since I reload and he does not.


    Hmmm. he is living with his mama while he goes to college. I bet she would be libtard upset at me if I gave him like a reloading starter kit for his birthday.

    Yeah, I have a rule when I scarf up free .223/5.56 cases at the range. I keep all the .223 as .223, and use all the 5.56 for .300 AAC conversions.

    Some 5.56 stuff is no good for blackout, the walls are too thick. The main ones I keep for 223 are GECO, wolf, and PPU. They'll lock a round in the chamber every time if you try to use them for conversions.

    My dad is the same way. I just went out there today and we went through 325 rounds of my ammo

    Yeah? Because I just bought me a box of 250 Nosler 155 gr. .400" JHP's. Maybe I could get you to send me a couple of your bullets to try to talk myself into learning how to make them??
