Re: What have you bought (firearms related) in the last 48 hours?
We live 500 miles from nearest Sportsmans Warehouse, (biggest selection of powder) and our road closes for the winter in 2 weeks. Wife didn't want to make the trip in as it's snowing and first 200 miles is rough sloppy gravel road, single lane in many places. Local friend always makes the trip and told me he'd pick up powder & primers for me. Can't send such things on small bush planes without breaking the law. So I called and gave them a list, course they didn't have half the powder I wanted, but I got 11 one lbers and 2000 fed GM210's. I'm waiting on a 308 SCAR, wanted to get some powder for reloading. Here's what I got:
4 lbs IMR 8208 XBR
2 lbs Accur 2230
2lbs H CFE 223
2lbs Ram TAC
1lb Accur 1680 for my S&W 460 pistol
I really wanted Accur 2495 but they didn't have in stock.
What do you all use in AR platform rifles in 308 caliber for hunting?
I've been well set for years, my grandkids will still be killin caribou, moose , sheep, and bear with the supplies I bought before they were born. Boy, I'm getting pretty depressed with the poll talk by media, can't even fathom the majority of Americans would re-elect Big "O"; but I'm being quite prudent just in case they do. So 11 lbs of powder & 2000 large rifle primers cost $375 and the wifey didn't even bat an eyelash. She remembers me buying cases of FMJ 556 for $179 each way back when, no regrets. I wonder how much tax we will be paying on ammo down the road if it all goes south? Heck, the local Indians can't afford ammo now, I'll just tell them to go see Big "O"; maybe he'll give them some free, ya right?
