    Thanks a ton Benzuncle! I had thought about that, reloading and seeing if I could find enough factory boxes to put them in. If all the head stamps match know way of telling they were reloads.

    I may just come up the show this weekend and see what everyone has.

    Thanks again

    Georgia Arms will have a booth at the Orlando Show. I bought from them last time they were there. Very good people to deal with. And seriously, lemme know if you need those boxes. I'm going to SpaceCoast Bullets and pick up some primers, powder and bullets. I've emailed them an order and want to talk to them 'bout lead bullets. They are highly recommended by those that use their stuff.

    Thanks for the info on the Space Coast Bullets. I had been using Zero Swaged 230 gr lead RN bullets for practice. They were cheaper then jacketed and still shot great out of my Kimber. Let me know how you like this companies bullets.

    Does Wal-Smarts really use second rate ammo? I often shoot Winchester White Box 9mm because it is by far the cheapest ammo I've found.

    I had heard some rumors that Wal-Smarts sells second rifles also, but was never sure if this was sound truth. Seems like selling seconds would be a major safety hazard that no major company would want on record.

  6. Check all ammo before loaded in firearm. All ammo can have defects.

    +1. I've seen factory ammo with primers seated backwards, bullets loaded upside down, cases split/pinched/crushed.

    Thumbs up Orlando Gun Show

    Went to the Gun Show as planned. I paid my planned visit to Space Coast Bullets and was pleased that the products I requested from them on their website/forum, <style> </style> SPACE COAST BULLETS was there and waiting for me.
    My order:
    1000 rounds of 230gr. 45ACP cast lead round nose bullets
    500 rounds of 95gr. 380ACP cast lead round nose bullets
    1000 CCI Large Pistol Primers
    1000 CCI Small Pistol Primers
    2lb of Hodgdon's HP-38 powder

    Total expenditure: $215.00.

    Using the Cost Calculator on handloads.com, I'm building 45's for $6 per box of 50, or 12 cents per round less the brass, which I scrounge for. Space Coast Bullets has a full line of loaded ammo both in lead and copper jacketed, plenty of powder types and reloading equipment. (I bought 100 rounds of their FMJ .380 ammo previously and it fired flawlessly.) I really need to save up some more jack and take a little daytrip to their place in Melbourne once. BTW: they ship via FED EX, which is right around the corner from their place of business. They don't pad the bill; you'll pay whatever FED EX charges and no more. Sweet.

    Oh, one last thing: the folding metal luggage carrier that I bought years ago before luggage came with wheels paid for itself BIG TIME! I put a little basket on it, secured it with bungies and rolled 45.5lbs of "ingredients" around for an hour and a half with very little effort.

    No: WalMart does not sell any second rate ammo

    No: Walmart does not sell second rifles either.

    All their ammo is new in box from the manufacturer, unless people consider remington and winchester to be "seconds"

    They sell almost every brand of rifle, so unless you think the manufacturers are giving WalMart "seconds" the answer is no.

    I can't believe that was posted, because it's ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY untrue. (And I Don't Even Like WalMart)
