Well back to stocking up. My wife, son, daughter, brother and a friend shot up some ammo today. All had a good time at the family land.

downloadfile-20.jpg

Started out with some skeet. Still love my little stevens 410 double barrel. Had a 590a1 mossberg, 500 mossy and daddys ole jc higgins pump.

Afterwards we moved to the pistols. 357 s were ruger sp102 and a S&W with one nice trigger job. Double action was like snapping glass.

Walther p22 always fun, two wheelguns in 22.

Fnp45 the "beast"

And cz52. Think my friend had a craving flung on him after shooting the commie block walther knock off.

Tailgated for lunch, bratwurst and hotdogs.

After the break we got out two aks and my friends mosin. I got to get one if those. Before we knew it, dark was coming upon us.

It's days of fun family shooting that the antis would like to squash. Along with our right to defend ourselves.

Stay vigilent and include the younger generation in the fun. When it's their turn to go shooting, maybe they will bring pops.

Ok, now back to my list for replacement ammo, and a date on the calender for another day of fun.

Just a word of caution about reloads. After an extended time in storage some reloads will have a "bond" form between the brass and bullet. If you're the reloader it is easily taken care of by setting the seating die 1/4 to 1/2 turn deeper. Most of the cartridges will simply be seated a tad deeper, on the other hand, you may find a few that will really snap when reseated. I haven't noticed this occurrence of yet on tumbler cleaned brass. Good luck!

Nice tip. I'm getting ready to start reloading in mass. I'll have to keep that in mind for the future. Thanks.
