Yeah, I won't be paying to ship it. They will be paying that haha. But those flat-rate boxes are soooo nice. If you pack everything right you can ship lots of stuff for little to nothing. I like them a lot. I am sure lots of people would make it worth my time to ship them whatever I find at the range from time to time. If not then I would just be helping out a fellow shooter which is always nice. Let me know if you start reloading haha.

Well, either way. It's nice to save the money for the recipient, too.

xcoryyyx that's very nice of you and there are plenty of people on here that would love to have some, me being one of them. You could prob even list some in the classified section and make a couple bucks to pay for your ammo if you were to charge a fair price to pay for your efforts. But I'll take some free stuff

correct. ive traded brass on here before. the flat rate boxes work great

Psh, its always nice to help a fellow shooter especially if the range is just going to throw out the old brass. We collected roughly 100 empty brass shotgun shells last time we were at the range. Practically no one picks up any of the brass there. I feel like instead of it going to waste I can help out a few of the nice people on here who have helped me with general questions I have had or things of that nature. I will keep you all updated.

Ya'll will know more about that rifle when the time comes.
I don't know if this well help you or not guys at the range were i shoot pull the bullets on the 54R surplus that does not shoot well. They resize the neck and add a new bullet and powder.
