Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Went for ammo...but

#1 Post by echo1 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 1:35 pm

Hi Fellas,

Responded to a "WTS .45 ammo components" listing. 850+ rounds of match hand loads, done by a competition shooter switching to 9mm. While shootin the breeze, he happens to mention he had a Commercial 1917 Colt 1911 he'd let go of if I was interested. He'd been running Glock for comp. New barrel, bushing, springs, and the take offs, original mag and 3 spares. Put it with the pile of ammo says I. PAX

I wouldn't buy, let alone shoot, someone home made hand load ammo. just way too risky, especially from someone you don't even know. but it's your hand/face and gun.

One round without powder, one moment of inattention, bye bye hands and face... Only trust your own loads.

That is if fact very good advice guys, especially for a rookie (which I'm not), and I do have a couple questions when I come across stuff like this. He was responsible enough to list it as componets. Positive marker # 1. When I actually met the fella at his home, a single professional (city civil engineer), motor head with a toy (warmed over '09(?) ZR1 Vette), and checked out his set up in an immaculately kept 2 story (purpose built reloading room in the 3rd bay of his 3 car garage), it cast aside any doubts about the ammos quality. It wasn't barefoot Bubba with a kitchen set up selling out of the trunk of his Escort. As I said he was changing calibers for competition. He had numerous, plaques, medals, and trophies that he said he earned with the ammo he was letting go. 836 match grade rounds for 150 bucks. He also had quite a collection of handguns, the Commercial Colt I got was one. During our chatting, he mentioned he had a matching Mosin M38 with a couple hunnered rounds of Privvi and about the same milsurp if I was interested. I was. Yes, caution is prudent with home grown ammo, used guns, cars, & planes.

How do you fellas make new gun nut friends that you can trust? I have a new one. PAX
