    It happened to me

    I was moving some stuff on the top shelf and discovered 15,000 CCI #300 primers I didn't know I had. 3 boxes of 5,000 primers each.

    At today's prices that is like finding 3000 bucks stuffed in the penny jar. Great find. I'd keep looking.

    I found 7,000 small pistol, 2,000 large pistol, and 2,000 shotgun primers in a box last week while I was looking for my 7.62X54R dies. They are from the 60's, but I have used others from the 60,s and they all worked. The large pistol are Herters primers.

    Nice find!

    I was digging around in the shed the other day and found a bunch of 8x57 brass I’d forgotten I had. Too bad I bought several hundred last spring for a new to me rifle without looking.

    I had completely forgot about stashing them in Texas. Thanks for finding them for me

    Have had similar discoveries lately. I knew I had a bunch of Berdan primers but surprised to find wolf LR as welll.

    Also a bunch of Varget. More Trail Boss on hand than I thought. Going to actually have time to do some casting and loading in the near future so happy to find I'm well insulated from current shortages.

    I found a stub nose pistol digging around. How many primers can I trade it for.

    Don't really want to get rid of it just forgot what safe it was in for about eight years.

    i once found a smith 15 i forgot i bought. Back when police trade ins were a 150 bucks i bought 5 15s and 3 64s. Bought them at differnent times and stuck this one in a drawer in the reloading room. About a year later was looking for my remote meat sensor for the smoker and found it sitting there i a drawer.

    I found one CCI Stinger in the bottom of my holster drawer box.
    A box of premium carry ammo is too expensive at about $30, so I've spent $1,000 on molds, lead, lube, primers, and powder over the past 10 years to make some that's cheaper!
