    +1 on what Buckshot said. It depends on where you live and the climate as to how thorough you need to be. Dry Climates little to no care needed super damp climates coat in oil (I like Kroil) wrap in VCI paper and store in a plastic organizer.

    I just bought 3 weeks ago, from Midsouth, before that sale, 500 of the same bullet for about $45.00 + shipping. About a dime per bullet. I don't shoot AR 223/5.56 that much, so I do not cast for it; I just buy the bullets to load. Maybe I will...
