Still smarting from newbieitus, I buy a bunch of ammo in bulk from several online bulk dealers. Shipping is not cheap, but, hey, what a deal when you buy it by the thousand. Oh, look, it's steel, not brass. Oh, look, it sure leaves a lot of "soot" in the barrel. Look again, lots of stove pipes. Oh, and one final look, Winchester brass ammo for sale at Walmart 40% cheaper than what's their name. And no shipping (but yes, tax). Wanna buy some cheap ammo?
