I think all this talk about gun bans and ammo shortage is a stunt by the
guns and ammo manufactures, by instilling fear everybody stocks up
on guns and ammo and as a result the gun industry does very well
while the rest of the country goes down the drain, however if im wrong
i cant see obama doing anything about it until the country is more financialy stable.
my tip if you have a military caliber stock up on boxer primed military ammo
buy a reloading press, sporting projectiles, a neck sizing die
and a RCBS bullet puller.
simply with the bullet puller remove the FMJ, then neck size and replace with a hunting projectile and this works out much cheaper than buying factory
hunting loads BUT RMEMBER both FMJ & sporting projectile MUST weight the same and remove the de-capping pin,
but leave the expander ball in the die!
i do this with 7.62x39 steel cased military ammo.
i swap the 124.5 grain FMJ with Nosler 125 grain balistic tip with the same case, powder and primer, it works great, the bonus out in the field when
you shoot multiple rounds at a hog and you can never find the brass cases in tall grass
well with steel cases you dont have that problem because steel cases are use once only because of the mercury primer.
