Found ammo I already had.

I see those threads pop up from time to time and I can never understand how someone can misplace ammo. Well, now I can.

Was just up in my reloading room and doing some clean up and putting away the 4350 I bought today. I had a pile of empty plastic sacks in the corner and started grabbing them when one of them was full.

Apparently, I had grabbed some ammo and primers on a trip to Walmart last Fall and stuck the sack in the corner without unpacking it and putting the ammo away. Subsequent sacks were emptied and thrown on top of it.

What a score! 400 rounds of Federal Brass 9mm, 450 rounds of .22LR, 2 boxes of .223, and 200 Small Rifle primers.

I am still finding ammo.

That is one reason why I keep an inventory.

I am kind of a hoarder; I see something for sale that I want or think will be useful eventually and I buy it, then I bring it in the house and set it down. I am very poorly organized. Trying to do better, but this morning I am headed into town to renew my DL then pickup some ammo cans at Costco, then get some boards at home depot.

It's always better to find valuables unexpectedly than to expect to grab some only to find it not there.:eek:
My problem is due to being disorganized I am not sure whether I have something or not, how much I have, or where it is. Working on doing better, but I also have a lot of chores that I have fallen behind on.

I'm somewhat that way myself. At least WAS that way. When I had to pack up all of my powder and primers and move them to a safe location during the wildfires, I decided it was a REALLY good idea to do some inventory. As a result, I wound up selling quite a few lbs of powder and a few thousand primers:eek:
