    I was priming .45 auto brass the other night and ran into those pesky small primer cases. Turns out they are from four boxes of new Federal Champion 230gr. FMJ RN I got to break the Ruger in. Nothing on the box to indicate they are something different and the case head stamping are just the normal Federal 45 Auto you would expect to see. They were on sale for $16.95/50 so I just picked them up and went on shopping. Surprise, surprise when I tried to put a large pistol primer in them when they got mixed in with the rest of the brass. Guess I am going to half to open every box before I buy in the future. Is this going to become standard or what?

    I picked up several hundred rounds at the range last month when renewing my CCW. Came home dumped em all in the viberator. Then discovered that the small primer cases are all mixed in with the large! I'll have check each one, and seperate them. Might throw out the small primer cases. I have plenty of the standard.

    Loaded 350 rounds of 45LC last night, pretty HOT STUFF. I know a really nice fellow who just loves his new Ruger Redhawk Double Action!

    Spent the last couple of days loading up, 500 rds of .38 DEWC, 200 rds of .45ACP lead RN, 200 rds of .44 mag. I got the vibrator going with about 200 more .38's, and found a new unopened bag of .44spcl. I guess I'll spend a few hrs. in there again tomorrow.

    I'm loaded up pretty good at the moment, what I need to do is shoot. Went to the local gun shop with a couple of the other Old Guys this afternoon as one of them wanted to purchase a new Ruger LCP or LC9, he chose the LCP. I picked up a pound of powder and a 1000 primers. The stock of ammo and components was the largest I have seen in a while. I mean pallet load stacks of ammo clogging the aisles. Powder and primers were in good supply also. Powder was priced around $19/lb., primers were $34-$36/1000 with three mfgs to choose from. Blazer 22lr. was $16/525, Blazer Brass 380acp. was $16/50, Blazer Brass .38spl. was $17/50, Federal 9mm was $12/50, .40S&W was $15/50 and .45acp was $17/50. They had Fed. green tip 5.56 for $170/420 in an ammo can just to give you an idea. The Ruger LCP with Lasermax was $330, $300 without the laser. This is a high volume gun shop, take a number, now serving no. 87, type of place but it is the major retailer of shooter's supply in this area.
