    I don't know what all the hysteria is about with this bullet shortage? What do y'all do with your down time while you're waiting for the lube on thousands of bullets to dry? At this point I've run out of benches to dry on should I build another bench to dry my bullets on or just wait till tomorrow to lube the rest? Ahhhh the horror !!!

    I don't own a .40. I am doing good on the .308 (700) and .224 is around 6000 or so . . .:thumbup:

    Curses, foiled again! :)

    My less smart arse question, there isn't a way for a normal person to smelt/make their own jacketed rounds right?

    CORBIN makes equipment so you can make your own .224 jacketed bullets from fired 22lr shells

    How did you make the rifle bullets? Or did you buy?

    No, I have not used their equipment but I have seriously considered purchasing it. Cost is a factor and it is time consuming.
