    I was looking at what I have for match ammo for an upcoming competition and noticed something. I need to get my butt back in front of that press and crank out some boolits. And no, this is not nearly enough to not run out soon.

    This actually represents something of a cycle of ammo use. On the bottom row I move from left to right from totally unprocessed to primed and ready to charge. On the top it's sorted by how much I actually go through. The left is easier to reach.

    CPR:
    7br 162: $.48/rd (~250)
    7br 130: $.47/rd (~125)
    .223 75: $.28/rd (~150)
    .308 165: $.54/rd (~100)
    .30carb 110: $.25/rd (~200)

    How's your stock looking?

    I have lower tan what some would prefer but I do have at least 1,000 of various bulk ammo rounds. More depending on the specific cartridge. Like .22LR, about 4,000 of that and about 3,000 of my "just in case" stuff. Target and hunting ammo, not much.

    I shoot it from my G21 occasionally but mostly from a converted small ring mauser. Using super brass and the right spring lets me run things way warmer than with normal ACP brass in the pistol. The mauser is a swede carbine I converted. Chamber is .45acp dimension. With the right brass and loads it'll launch 200gn to >2000fps
