    Well you never want to get into reloading,some night you will be dreaming about reloading ammo and wake up with a sore arm,you will also shoot more for less money,but between casting bullets and loading ammo you will spend about 3-4 hours to load about 1000 rounds with my equipment

I would like to keep more of an inventory at home so that 1) we have more on hand and 2) I'm not paying full price on something I could have gotten on sale months before.

    SO... I'm entering the world of bulk ammo buying.
    I suggest checking with your range before stocking up. My range says FMJ is fine, but they won't allow Herter's (I think it is Cabela's house brand). So if you have any doubt, ask your range before you buy. I think you will be safe with any major brand such as Federal.

    I didn't realize ranges could keep certain brands off their range, I guess that makes sense. In a year or so I'll be moved back to NEPA, where I can shoot on my own property, but for now I'm still paying for range time and stuck to their rules. Thanks for the heads up
