Sorry for late reply no I don't reload.I can't remember now if you reload or not. Sorry about that! So do you reload any or all of your CF or shotgun ammunition?
Your black powder shooting sounds like fun and I am happy that you started to do this too.
I don't remember how much 22lr shooting that you or your family shoots. I would bring that up to 10,000 rounds bare minimum and if you can afford to do it to 20,000 rounds minimum.
I would do this since you can FIND IT NOW and it is at a reasonable price compared to the fake/real shortage time frame a few years ago.
I kinda just got back into 22 lr shooting last year.Sorry for late reply no I don't reload.
I just buy stuff in bulk and shoot half and save half.
Sometimes I buy bulk orders and split it with a few friends.
My mom still shoots a 9mm she is 72 but she can only do a few mags .I am changing my minimum stock compared to what I have actually been shooting with my arthritis the last couple of years and at 69 years old.
Don't choke on your coffee now! ; . )
My husband and I have been using mainly using Federal 22lr in 2 types for our RF ammo. (HP and LRN)
The other RF ammo is gone.
I only shoot RF - 22lr.
I am keeping 1300 rounds for myself in my Federal Auto Match ammo. (Four 325 round packs.)
I gave the rest of my fairly large stock of RF to him to add to his stock since he still goes to the range several times a week.
He shoots RF and CF firearms and usually CF firearms the most.
We went through all of his reloading stock again to check his inventory. He is okay there! I keep a record of this stuff as I do for food in my pantry and freezer. I do not reload and I never did reload. He has reloaded since the 70's. He buys some CF ammo on and off too.
(I sent him to the store to buy just under $100.00 of factory 30-30 ammo to support Walmart not caving in to the anti gun crowd the other day. I mentioned this elsewhere.)
He reloads ammo but not in LARGE amounts at one time as he used to do when he used to compete!
So if we do move - he will be moving mainly his components for his reloading. Not heavier ammo cans as he did many years ago. That just about killed him!
ALL of the components are organized perfectly and would be easy to move.
We did this together when he was downsizing his calibers and all of his firearms when he had more of a VARIETY of stuff and components to sort through.
Plus several 50 and 100 round green plastic cases with his reloaded ammo.
Plus his small amount of CF factory ammo in cans. NOT filled to the brim. (45acp and 30-30)
Plus the RF ammo in bulk boxes. They are in snug, flat, snapped shut containers.
Between cleaning out the file cabinet, shredding some paperwork, checking his stock and debating about some RE - I have been busy.
Have a nice Tuesday.
PS: The 20-20 elections and what is going on right NOW in gun issues should make everyone double check their stock even if they keep records. I listen to all sides and I don't trust any of them even when it comes to reloading stock!
Just remember to those members of the Fourth Estate anything over 1 round is a "hoard."Sure hope that Uncle Sam doesn't decide that that's too much and also to get rid of them "Assault Guns"
