    Shooting Less?

    With the scarcity of ammo, is anyone else curtailing their time at the range?

    Yes. And due to current shortages i had no other choice but to buy some terrible PPU JHP ammo for my practice needs.

    Looked on youtube and saw nothing but bad news about the cartridge. Decided to do a little water jug/denim test of my own due sheer boredom and true to form it had complete jacket separation and passed through all jugs including the backstop. I found the jacket lodged in the backstop.

    Yes I have cut back, more time with the .22 and less rounds with the AR, .45 and 9 mm's.

    I won't go to the range unless I can find ammo to replace what I will probably shoot and lately, that's pretty much nil. I guess my Mosin will see most of the action now, since that ammo is still around and cheap. I wish .308/7.62x51 was as cheap as Mosin ammo
    I can find almost any ammo, but not trying to go broke with todays prices.

    I have a funny feeling that the ammo may have another, more useful, purpose.

    Last week the range I frequent restricted ammo to one box. I'm loathe to part with any of my precious horde at this time so in answer to your question: yes.

    Yep, I've been feeling exactly that way. Haven't been to the range since this started because I don't want to burn through my supplies without being able to replace them.

    I'm a little jealous of you reloaders; though my friend who does reload told me he is having a hard time finding primers.

    Like a few others here who responded, I like to keep X amount of rounds on hand, so I don't go as much as I want at this time.

    I can't prove it, but I believe the big box stores are in bed with the fed until they see if the fed will profit them or not. Yeesh!
