    Got more primers & powder than my great grandkids will ever use, no joke went over board 2 years back and should have spent more on brass & bullets. Couldn't imagine Sportsmans in Fairbanks putting all that powder & primers they usually have on shelves somewheres else.

    Ya know, I was reading ATF was taking comments (you know the codewords for upcoming regulations) until Dec 31st concerning many types of hunting bullets (non FMJ) that are able to penetrate vests. I guess by their proposed determination, any bullet going over 1700 falls in this category; that's all the bullets I use way I see things. Then they have a special hatred for the solid & I guess they are bonded bullets and anything on that order. So first they don't want us using lead for the environment & now, they don't want us using copper, or anything else I guess. Maybe this sounds like fear mongering, but who knows. My gun shop guy claims big changes with the new year. Time to buy a few new lowers and order more bullets before they are outlawed.

    What have you all heard about this?

    Just because a man has a title after his name doesn't mean he knows all the rules/laws by heart. I've heard of firefighters that won't go near reloading components in a fire...

    Well if you are in LV, the firechief went through stores such as Bass Pro and Sportsmans and pushed some breech of local fire code on these retailers.
