    Me, too. I had rather go shooting than profiteer.

    Most of my shooting these days is pistol, so I diverted most of my small rifle primers to 9mm and sold some of my large rifle primers to my Long...

    I have supplies of ammo and components that were considered large in 2019, only thought fair now.

    I would consider a 199 SAO as a plinker.

    Standard magazine + Magblock would be worth a look.
