    AHHHH, the Joys of cheap ammo

    Good evening,
    Remember the days of low priced 22LR? How about $2.00 boxes of trap loads? I put in a box of LEAD....YES....real LEAD Magnum loads from when I used to go goose hunting.

    Just pulled out a brick (500) of Hansen .22 with a $4.99 price tag on it. Shot real well

    I do not remember 2 dollar shotgun shells, but I did buy 1.75 reloads at high school, during class from my teacher and carried them home on the bus. Try that these days. lol

    Was at a yard sale several years back and the guy had many boxes of new 12 gauge shells. Picked up two boxes of Super-X Double X Magnum #2 lead shot for $5 per box. He had two boxes of BB lead XXs and I passed them up. Still kicking myself./beagle

    Yes, I certainly recall that "inexpensive" ammo - thank goodness I'm making 8x what I made then. The $20/brick CCI Blazers and $25/brick CCI SV I just purchased is the cheapest .22LR I've ever bought.

    Years ago, Walgreens sold ammo. They were having a sale on shotgun shells. Stopped in one night after work and bought three boxes of Super X 20 3" gage shells. it came to about $9. The clerk rang it up and I paid for it with a $20. She gave me back the change and stapled the precept and stuff in to the bag. I walked out got in the pickup, and started home. Was going to go hunting the next day, so I looked at the bag and she had stapled the $20 to the bag with the receipt. I was too far along to return the money.

    I had found some boxes of Winchester 303 Savage 190gr Silver Tip ammo that had $2.79 price tag on them in my dad's garage attic. I wish I knew where those boxes were today. I think they got lost in one my parents moves. I know dad doesn't have them any longer or I'd have them now for sure. I obtained my 303 Sav. about 20 years ago....but haven't seen those boxes in that amount of time.

    The only stupid question...is the unasked one.


    Not all who wander....are lost.
