    Training ammo

    The situation is more dire than I'd realised

    you monster

    I found a full one under my reloading bench so not all is lost, but it's not a happy scene.

    At least the projectiles are back in stock again now so I can do some reloading. Prefer to get the steel cased stuff for occasions where I don't want to be looking for spent brass.

    Thankfully that is only a couple of times a year and I'm only likely to use a box each time. Might pick up some brass cased training ammo.

    I have plenty anyway so won't be too worried about losing some. Was intending to do a heap of reloading, have 400 cases prepared and ready to go. Just need powder and projectiles and a load. with being laid low I haven't had the chance to work up a load and running out of time.

    MattyP got some for his new 308 and it is extremely good in his rifle. Made by ADI.

    I've just been watching the Aussie reviews on youtube - i now realise why you kiwi's used to always try to get me to say the letter 'H'. The correct bogan pronunciation is "Hay-ch...as in HAY-CH, EEM, ARRR mate". Then there was the dude saying to the rep at the shot show "Mate, show me the latest BLAY-ZAR" "ah yes here is the new BLAH-zer" (the rep instantly correcting him).
