    I just bought a 1000 rounds of 7.63 X 39 yesterday. That'll have to count for me this year.

    Damn, I forgot to buy ammo today. Guess that means I have to buy twice as much next time.

    Guess it’s as good a time as any to buy some .30 carbine for my dad’s Xmas gift...
    Anyone suggest a good .45 round to use in a 1911 from 1917? Don’t want anything too hot, even tho it’s refurbished back to standard issue specifications (aka shooter grade).

    I have and read that issue of Guns and Ammo. Scary ARTICLE about expired ammo. Pull dating it like bread. Stop production bread runs out.

    I'd suggest a plain old 230 grain FMJ round around 850 FPS or so.... Since that was the round the pistol was designed for.
    Many companies still make a version of this load.
