A few people have tried to get me to sell some of my ammo cheap and one guy in particular was absolutely ridiculous about it. Okay, this situation is so absurd you might not believe it. This guy likes to go out in his boat and trap crayfish(crawdads) to sell to restaurants. He catches a lot of crayfish. He might bring back 100 pounds or more at one time. One day he was telling us he just bought a Remington 788 in .243 and would like to find a load that would work good in it. He knows I also have a 788 in .243 and asked if I reloaded. I explained that I had been reloading that cartridge for a long time and had worked up some really good loads. I would have been willing to share my reloading data with him but NO, he wanted more than that. He wanted some of my ammo. He went so far as to offer to trade crayfish for ammo. I think I might have offended him when I laughed a little when he made his offer. Recently I heard him complaining that ammo and reloading components are scarce. As far as I'm concerned him and others like him are on their own.

I have made this offer to a few people. If they would buy the components I would load for them. I would even use my dies if I had them for the cartridge they wanted. I guess that wasn't easy or convenient enough for them.

In that case, I would wish them luck finding Ammo for the next year or so lol. Can't help somebody who isn't willing to help themselves.

I can't find anyone to offer. Everyone around here reloads. Most have Dillons!

Early on someone said this:

"a 1000 round case of Tulammo 7.62X39 go for $450."

$450???? I bought 1000 rounds of 7.62x39 from AIMsurplus for $209, shipped to my door. Can I do that today? No! But it wasn't that long ago and I can't bring myself to pay OVER double a mere 8 months later.

That is exactly what I've been saying, there is no way I'll pay that much for the same cheap ammo that I could have bought for half the price three months ago.

While at the indoor range last week a guy, unknown to me, asked if I could spare 20 rounds or so of .40 Cal.. Not to buy but to loan it to him. I just laughed and said, you must be kidding. I don't feel sorry for those people that live day to and don't prepare for the future.

I can see this happening. Recently I had a guy looking over at me to check out what I was shooting. He came over and asked what kind of .45ACP ammo I was using. By the way I could see he was looking at my ammo I could tell he was hoping I would offer to share it. I said nothing and kept shooting.
