I don't like Tul ammo because of the steel case. I save my brass hoping to get a Dillon 650 to start reloading.

I've not shot steel ammo from my guns. I just started buying it for the price point. For my ar I'm building and the sks I just got.

I bought some in 45acp, I always buy brass but at $15 a box, I can afford to shoot away.

I have never run steel case in anything I own and probably never will. I reload now so the brass is useful to me, when it wears out I put it in the recycle bin then get paid for it when I recycle it. Whenever I am at the range I scrounge all the brass I can manage then sort out the calibers I use from the ones I don't and sell the stuff I don't use.

Beyond 100 or so 223's and a few hundred 22lrs'and a couple of magsfull of 9mm, nothing is needed, cause by the time I fire those, there will be dozens of guns and thousands of rds of ammo to be picked up, lying beside dead bodies.
Off the meds???

You people make me feel bad I don't have enough ammo or mags. I only have about 2-3 thousand .22lr rounds mix of hp, round nose. 140 rounds of 7.62x54R 40 of which are soft tip and 100 are FMJ. 20 rounds of .223 ballistic tipped. 100-200 rounds of 20 gauge mix of 3 ought buckshot, 7 1/2 birdshot, 8 birdshot, 4 birdshot, slugs. 50 rounds of .380 FMJ. One 25 round magazine for my .22lr. 15 stripper clips for my Mosin Nagant. One 10 round magazine for my .380. But then again I have only been shooting for around a year now and bought my first gun last December.

Well I'm prepared for all them contingents. You apparently aren't though. We all miss some, some more so than others. I don't miss often but it does happen. If you say you dont miss your either a fool, a liar, just don't shoot much, or all the above-if you aren't a trolling teenager which from looking at some of your other posts you seem to be
