Re: Ammunition question
Two reasons for not using standard velocity. 1 Availability. Only a couple of places in town stock it. 2 Cost. the they want $13 per hundred. I latched on to 2,000 rounds at $8 per hundred at a gun show recently but I can get the 550 bulk at Wally's for $20.
I usually go to the range three times a week and typically run 100 rounds through the older rifles, maybe 40 to 50 rounds through a modern 22 automatic pistol and maybe 30 to 40 rounds of 9mm. I don't shoot well, so it takes a lot of ammunition to make nice holes in the paper.
I love these old guns and would like to leave them in good condition to someone who will appreciate them when I'm gone.
