That 3-4week turn around was probably before the bayonet feeding frinzy!! You right about date - Correctedshoeshooter said:Last two orders I got took about 3 - 4 weeks. Captain, I think you mean "2010" not "2009"
I'll swear I've seen five dozen posts from you saying "you need to reload" or words to that effect. Now you're waiting on ammo??? What's up with that?jbpmidas said:I'm patiently waiting, but seeing that money in my gun account makes me feel like I should be buying something.
Shoe -- how you loading it?shoeshooter said:I finally got off my lazy butt and finished my first Garand loads. Still waiting to try them. Added up the costs and it's darn close to the Greek stuff, hence my decision to order more myself. If it's not more accurate it's not worth the bother...unless I find some cheaper bullets.
Yea -- those MKs will cut into the margin quit a bit!! Agree with SGF, get a bunch of 147 or 150 grainer surplus to play with ...shoeshooter said:46 gr IMR 4895, Win LR primer, '72 HXP case, 168gr SMK (hence the high cost)
No argument from me on that. Had to try some anyway. Inquiring minds want to know. I've got a long ways to go before I can outshoot the Greek stuff.SubGunFan said:Shoe, not to shoot you or anyone else down, but...........
Until you can personally out shoot surplus ammo (accuracy wise), and the cost of jacketed bullets are so high, I suggest buying "surplus" FMJ bullets if you want to reload. This is for iron-sight shooting. Optics is a whole different story......
I hear you....... I would really like to have about 5K of 168gr HPBT bullets laying around.shoeshooter said:No argument from me on that. Had to try some anyway. Inquiring minds want to know. I've got a long ways to go before I can outshoot the Greek stuff.
