We had a swap meet at the club on Sunday.  One gent had surplus .17HMR ammo that was snaffled up fast.  Turns out you can't buy it locally at the moment.  

All of a sudden my .22 Hornet cast bullet loads running on a puff of powder seem very sensible.  

Cheers from New Zealand

Nice bullets!

To make your own bullets for free, be able to propel them with a wide variety of powder types and charges, with cases and barrels that last forever... We’re the lucky ones!

That bullet is the new style Lyman 225415 but I have the old version also. Last rabbit trip I was shooting NOE 225107 copies (38gr) at 2250fps.

The new style 225415 will not stabilize in my 218 Bee with a 15 inch twist. The old style will.

Another Ammo+++ auction up here.  Centerfire and shotgun ammo somewhat high but Rnot outrageous.  I got some Federal 22LR Auto Match for the equivalent of $42/brick.  Most of the 22LR went for $90-100/brick.  Pretty good selection of primers, pretty much all $90-100/brick.  One lot was 2 pounds of IMR4064 brought $155.  Several lots of lead shot, mostly brought around $1/pound.

 

Gun auction Saturday.  At least those prices have stayed reasonable around here.

Holding public office should be viewed as an obligation to serve, not an opportunity to rule.
