Ammo--Where To Buy Premade Ammo?
« on: October 04, 2004, 10:34:11 AM »
Howdy pards,

Prairie Terri is taking a shooting class the end of this month, with Doc Shapiro and Badlands Bud. I don't have the time to set up the reloader and develope a load for her. So I need a source to order ammo, I have already looked at Cabelas and Midway. I was wondering if there were any others.

  I go with www.ammodirect.com myself, as my job requires 60 - 80 hours a week of my time.  Therefore I don't have time to reload.

Order up some BP reloads from Black Dawge and get her started right.  ;D
That class should be a good one. Trouble is BB is getting so fast it is hard to watch if you have tired old eyes. I had to jump around to get the blood circulating this past week end, just so I could spot for the lad. He had a few 10-10-4+ stages in under 18 seconds. Whewww.  :)
Doc is super observant and can pick up a lot of your wasted motion and try to point out just how you can save a lot of time with transitions and such. I would go myself, but Ruff as you know I have shot my last match for the year and just don't have the time. Next year will be a whole nuther story I hope.

Howdy pards,

Thanks for the suggestions, have bookmarked them.

Howdy Doody,

You trying to get me into trouble? That would be like the time I slipped a 357 Magnum round into her pistol when she was practicing. Thought she would need a change of drawers and she thought the pistol had exploded.  ;D :o  ;D

Ruff, hahahaha. Sort of good practice when you think of it. sort of like putting in one round and giving the cylinder a spin. I do that to work on my nasty flinch.  ;)
What's wrong with a gal shootin' BP? They had to do it in the good old days. Once seasoned those shootin' irons will clean up pretty fast.
I am gonna miss you pard, you put the wide smile on my face.  :'(

Tell you what Howdy, I will suggest it to PT. But if she whoops me with the frying pan, I will give you 2 for every 1 I get.  :D ;D :D

John Boy gave you two of the best that I've used so far.  AmmoDirect is the less expensive of the two.  But, not by more than a few dollars.  Either one will give you great product for your cash.

Good advice from the pards here, Black Dawge makes good BP loads, but now there's one of my local Pards who will reload the BP for me.  Nothing wrong with the 357 round while "normally" shooting 38s.  I've used that technique to teach my sons and spouse NOT to flinch when squeezing the trigger.  Good luck and GOOD SHOOTING.

Morning Ruff,
  Call Lazy Jack down in Texas, I'm sure he could help you out.  His phone number- 817-573-2177, cell phone- 817-279-3494.  Jack Holmes of Lazyj weapons and reloading, he's a good man and a vet.   ;)  I've never had a bad load, when ordering from Jack.
  Now if she's shooting .38/357, it shouldn't cost too much to buy it locally.  If it's .45lc, reloading is the way to go. ;)
