Man i can go thru 100 .22lr in a minute. But you're right about enjoying it while still alive to enjoy it. I hope i dont enjoy to the point that i run out of supplies. I just happened to go into a LGS as they were un packing a shipment of powder! I scored #1 of lil gun, #1 of tiregroup and 8# of accurate #5! At non marked up, reasonable prices. If i wasnt married i would kissed that girl that helped me.You horde you horde shot a little horde some more then you die. Your family gives it all way since they have no interest in it. Or shoots it all up. So what good did all the hording do you what enjoyment did you get from it. Seen it happen twice. One friend got some of it but only what he needs a few box’s.
Me I have a few box’s of everything I use for hunting. Maybe 100 rounds ea. For my competition mybe 1000. And enough reloading supply to replace it for a year or two. For my 22 maybe 5k rounds extra because I shot it w the grand kids. We limit the shooting to 100 rounds per outing.
I hear ya. It’s a joke at bestA year and a half ago, I could buy a box of 9mm FMJ ammo for $12.99 a box. Now, they want $50 a box. Are you kidding me? I am not trying to stock pile, I just want some to shoot. I could just reload if I could get primers and powder. Somehow I managed to pick up a box of 500 FMJ bullets on sale somewhere, and I have picked up 9mm brass from time to time. What the heck?
You're a badddd boy, having so many caps. Nah, I can't blame you for being tired of this nonsense and just wanting to make sure you have what you need. Actually, I think sadly thats where we are. Make sure you have what you might need, as eventually you won't be able to get it .I’m with you, I believe we are in for Several Years of this Crap, I hope not, But if i were a betting Man, i’d place a LARGE Bet on it.
Some might say i am part of the Cause, if you read this thread
Thanks Lewis. I never thought of that. Sounds like a valid point. I'll lay of the torch tip cleaner.www.modernmuzzleloader.com
But Fact is our Local Co-op Had their CCi #11 Percussion Caps in a Big Bin on Closeout, Trying to get rid of them. So i loaded up on Several Thousand of them at a VERY discounted Price But i also shoot a TREMENDOUS Amount, FAR MORE Than the average fella. So they won’t actually last nearly as long as one might think
Somebody's lost their flippin mind! I saw last wk on GB someone was trying to auction off a partially USED bottle of BH 209 with "approx 6oz" left for 50.00 was the price I last saw. SHM & LOLing absolutely unbelievable & up till not so long ago - unimaginable too.

Sounds like the guy knows his stuff. It is very common for people to use 3f in a rifle (Pyrodex R is 2f granulation & Pyrodex P is 3f granulation), in fact most manufacturers recommend it over 2f for .45 cal and less.Plus 1 on powder being relatively normal price. It's sad though I talked to one guy he knew a lot about firearms not much about black powder. Tried to tell me that pyrodex p is good for rifles and pistols he went on to say rifles use three f powder.
I doubt he knows the difference between a black powder substitute an actual black powder.
They had one pack of CCI number 11 caps.
If you say so.Sounds like the guy knows his stuff. It is very common for people to use 3f in a rifle (Pyrodex R is 2f granulation & Pyrodex P is 3f granulation), in fact most manufacturers recommend it over 2f for .45 cal and less.
My favorite pet load for shooting PRB in my .54 is 80 grains of 3f. I get the same accuracy out of it as I do 90 grains of 2f, but with less powder being used and less fouling left in the bore. I love it in comparison to 2f fouling wise.
I have a friend whose .54 rifle prefers 2f, and he just uses the 2f in his .45 cal pistol too at club shoots so he doesn't have to have different granulation's. Works just fine and he hits with it a lot more than he misses.
You kind of went off "half-cocked" there, it is your knowledge that is a bit incomplete.
You're certainly not wrong to question the folks behind the counter of most box store firearm counters though.
the same guy is auctioning off 8 lbs of IMR the going bid is 800. WHAT!!!!!Somebody's lost their flippin mind!
