    It wouldn't hurt to ask, it's a win win situation for both IMO. If I was setup to load in bulk like him I would be doing the same thing.

    If your "friends" happen to have a good looking wife, ask if he wouldn't mind "sharing". then maybe he'll see your point. I do think the reload co-op is a good idea. It might help expand your reloading die collection. I load .40 for my brother and I don't even have one. But now I have the dies and shell plate for my Dillon in case I ever get one.

    It always seems to me like the ones who advocate or justify

    being unprepared or under-prepared the loudest

    are the first to turn to the prepared for "sharing".

    Are we, the prepared, also to shoulder the burden of

    being prepared for those who openly ridicule us, until

    a crisis arises ? I think not.


    I once had a Californian try to justify to me that he

    should be awarded my Navy pay indefinitely. I asserted that

    if he deserved my pay, the D.O.D. would already be sending it

    to him. BUT since they saw fit to give it directly to me, I was

    going to opt to keep it.

    The point is, some folks are nervy bastards.

    My thoughts are as follows I will not loan one round to any one period. I have been very vocal about storing ammo long before Obama came along.All my friends have plenty of there own ammo and me may swap ammo in our own best interest.
    When Noah closed the doors on the ark that was it. I have been telling every one to can and store food as well and most people laugh at me.
    Thats fine if nothing happens I just have less trips to the grocery store in the future. If the inevitable inflation hits hard and food goes out of sight to bad for them.The door is shut period.
    If any want my ammo all they have to do is try and steel my food.They get one round and they better hope I hit a vital spot because I am not wasting a extra so they dont suffer.
    In any case they better be willing to hike three days into the woods to find me any way.

    I would just like to point out that BEAR meat is supposed to be nutritious and delicious when properly prepared, since you are out in the woods anyways. Gobble some grizzlies (or black or polar or whatever bears you can).

    My numbers come close to a few of those... Only my wife and I know exactly what and how much. I like to keep it that way.

    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.

    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.
