    What comes before range day?

    Ammo organization and inventory day! After re-organizing stock, I actually came out with one and a half empty cans! No matter how often I do this, I never seem to come away with hard numbers for how many of what. Know what I mean? Today is range day by the way. I think there needs to be a recognized Range Day--kinda like Earth Day, Secretary's Day, No Smoking Day................etc. What do you think? Vote now for a national 'Range Day'.

    No idea, never shot them---yet. I'll look on the box to see if it tells. Ya gotta realize that some of this stuff has got to be coming up on ten years old or better. Some of it I know from the price stickers that are still on the boxes.

    I've got too much stuff in too little space. Starting to re-arrange things in order to start reloading again this fall. I only have fifty cases ready to load, and about 500 that need de-primed and prepped. Lately I've been getting into the factory ammo for zeroing the rifles.

    They have to be screaming out of the barrel. I did not know you could even get 45's with that small of a bullet.

    For me the day before range day is making bullets,either casting lead bullets or if they are already cast reloading them into cases to go shoot

    I'm not even close to Ram Rod's armory, but here's what I have. And I don't even own a shot gun... yet.
    I'm keeping the brass from the revolver.
    Just ordered 2300 more rounds, just in case. I've owned a gun all of 35 days now. When I get interested in something, I usually go over board.
    I'll be checking out a couple of outdoor ranges tomorrow.
