Off Season Lets Talk Guns

Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

I don't think we have any rifle powder yet (it was only last night that I learned there was a difference - I thought powder was powder). IIRC we have about 8 pounds of pistol powder. Which, apparently, is plenty.

8 pounds will go a long way in 9mm, around 11k rounds.

Powder is hard to come by. We received 16 pounds of Hodgedon and Benchmark about 3 weeks ago, but getting any more is going to take some patience.

Don't ask about primers. We have 5k of large and 4k of small left, but can't find any to buy. We are used to being stock up, so this is getting interesting.

My 2K 155 grain Sierra Match Palmas shipped 2 days ago from Midsouth, but they still don't have 69 grain Nosler Custom Comps yet. (Damnit).

Good luck finding anything. Just like with AR lowers and bolts, reloading has some shortages.

Oh, Walmart just put a 1 box max purchase on all ammo.


I usually pick up a box of 9mm every time I am there, but the last 2 trips they were sold out.

When it comes to pistol ammo, we're set. Got a shit ton of powder, primers and brass, just waiting on the bullets to arrive (ordered and schedule to ship in about a week).

We don't have anything in the .223 department, though, outside of some brass. Can't even find dies right now.

I have some .223 ammo, but I wouldn't fire off a round of it right now unless my life depended on it.

Oh, and when it comes to reloading, I'm a pure n00b. My buddy has all the equipment at his house, and until I start to figure stuff out I'll just be the idiot pulling the lever.

Be very very careful with pistol powders,you dnt toss a double load. It takes very lil powder for 9mm around 5 grains for HP-38 with 115 gr bullet.

A wise oldman told me/Have the same respect for that press as you would a loaded gun.

Word

I had a friend that would reload all the time in high school. (Thank God it was only shotgun shells) We would be out bird hunting and half the guys shells wouldn't go BOOM. He had a bunch that would go pop and a wad would drop out of the end of the barrel. Ooops, forgot the powder in another one. One day the guy had his 870 blow up on him, split the barrel. The guy was bummed I wouldn't use his reloads...Yeah.

It's been a very good "panic" season.
Got some new toys to play with.
Approximate net totals (minus some random spending that wasn't gun related, shipping, etc):

Marlin model 60 .22lr semi-auto
Mossberg 702 .22lr semi-auto
S&W SD9VE 9mm
Advantage Arms Glock 17 .22lr conversion

$1450 cash
10 1oz silver coins
5oz silver bar
A couple hundred rounds of Hornady ammo in various calibers (.308/9mm/5.56/.40).
1k worth of match .22lr ammo (fed HV match)
3k worth of plinking .22lr ammo (various bulk packs)
1 boat payment (=$440)



Still have to replace 30-40 mags, an AK, and some fed bulk 5.56 ammo. So hopefully this panic period ends soon.

I honestly had never heard of XDm, of course I am not a gun fanatic, but that is a pretty sweet gun after checking out the specs.

Does it shoot good and would you recommend it?

The savage .17 rifles are great. Much more accurate than a .22.

Bass Pro had some .223 in on Friday morning. I grabbed 100 rounds @ $9.99 for box of 20. Needless to say they are gone off the shelves now.
