    When I started loading for skeet n trap a bag of chilled was $9 and a bag of magnum was $10 . $35+ a bag just irritates the blank out of me .

    Don’t mean to pour salt in the wound so to speak but all the 00 I’ve ever had my hands on measured closer to .34” rather than .33” . And as to 000 it closer to .36” not .336” which I assume is a typing error . I’d be intrested in 0000 .38” and 00000...

    In central Virginia the picky sorts all seem to want the old AA hulls . There are many here that don’t want the HS hulls . Personally I’ll use any of the three old AA , HS or STS .

    My newest latest is a recently rereleased CZ 527 Varmint in 222 REM but it looks as if that may be eclipsed in a few days by a circa 1900 Parker VH 12 gauge #2 frame with 32" barrels . With a bit of work that "could" become my Sporting Clays Gun !
