    For me, this ranges from less than 350 (.38) for my .357 revolver, to currently over 1100 for my .22 pistol.
    I buy in bulk by mail, to avoid the hassle of driving all over three counties to find what I want in the stores. When I find a cartridge that works well for me, I buy a bunch (I bought a whole case of .22 at one time). Discounts increase with quantity, and shipping is cheaper at certain quantities, and I pay no tax on it.
    By the way, does anyone here wanna buy some .22 Short? They don't fly straight out of my new rifle.

However so will a lot of them be:rolleyes: .338 only about 150 rounds,22-250 well a lot more,22 long rifle,enough to shoot Grouse till I die,25-06 enough for the wife to never have to reload another round,12 gauge more than enough and handgun calibers more than I will advertise:eek: . catfish

    I have 1 gun & 1 bullet for it, all I'm gonna say.

    Let 'em compile , when the crap hits the fan, it won't matter anyway, except who's left alive @ the end. Just hope I'm not alone:D

    Could someone state the law on ownership limits so I can say a number below the limit?
