    As most of businesses I buy from are located far away, to save the mentioned $115.03, I order online. The bad news is CCI LRPs are still scarce even online.
    Due to its size or number of pages, this thread is slower to load than smaller threads. OTOH, it could be the site's servers.

    Ahh IC said the blind man! Unfortunatly there's not alot of LRPs yet still. Mail order is an iffy thing with hazmat being included, it was cheaper for me to temp plate my 323 drive down and pu the primers and bullets myself. Along the way i got a stop in at Cabelas and a great burger at a small shop i know.. I now have enough material that I can do, 3k of 9mm/.357Sig. along with a run for my Mauser and 300 Savage I haven't used in a while. I realized today I can do my .357 rounds on a 550, as I didn't sell the 40S&W/10MM kit which is also used for the Sig. Just different dies are used, and l have 2lb of powder just for that caliber, as all other pistols get TITEGROUP .

    Here, I can purchase:
    Ginex Large Rifle Primers IN STOCK - 1000 GIN-LR-1000 for $130.
    Winchester Primers #8-1/2 - 120 Large Rifle WLR 1000 Count for $139.99
    And so on.
    USI Ginex for $9.99 less than Remington or Winchester?
    Due to Haz Mat shipping is $35
    Where the hook is:
    WINCHESTER LARGE RIFLE PRIMER #8-1/2 1000ct FLAT RATE SHIPPING $35 - NO HAZMAT CHARGE Minimum Order 3000 primers $145.
    So $570 for 3k Winchester LRP. Judging by the first Winchester LRP price, I could beat the $570 by paying $139.99 and $35 or $454.97 a savings of $115.03

    Today's game is buy in quantity online.

    Once I made a comment that I was "cheap." A friend said he was calling bull stinky on that because I wasn't cheap, I'm frugal and there is one H of a difference.

    I know the Sig 357 is really a 9mm which is why the last sentence in my last post was "Sig's 9mm? :)"

    The primer shortage isn't really over, I got mine @ 130 +tx for 1000 through a friend who knew I was down to under 500. When I went to another shop to look for 8208XBR powder, they had the same primers @ 199 for 1000 plus taxes of course. I ain't paying that for this brand of primers, I'd be queasy paying that for FEDERAL MATCH even today.
    My P225 is in 9mm, my P226 is in 357 Sig which uses the same bullet. It's good as the round was developed so it can punch through that lightweight Body armor I found out. Good to know, if I wish to knock over an armoured car. Now I have to find what gear I still have squirreled away for the old 550.

    It's amazing how fast a deer or cougar can climb those steep hills.

    It's good to hear the shortages are over.
    Do you have a source for reloading information when using UNIS Genix primers?

    I read a lot of glowing reports online mostly it appears based on they are available and inexpensive. Over the years I've learned change something and some things can change.

    Sig's 9mm? :)

    I know that sort of terrain! I fired up my Mazda 323 for a coastal run today, to p/u reloading supplies. 2k LRP by Ginex? and 2k 9mm 147 grain bullets. nearly 50lb of em! This will keep most of my pistols happy for a while. I got 147 gr so I can use some in my .357 Sig.

    This was the coolest Spring here anyone can remember.

    Once I sell the Champion, I'll buy a Jon boat and keep the canoe as they both have special niches where they fit better than any other means. Where I live was a mountain ridge that was leveled; so parking and storage are at a premium.
    The sides are butt slider or use a rope.

    We've been getting crazy rain here too. which is sad considering the fires burning elsewhere in the province. I've got a 1965 9ft Harborcraft jonboat also so its a matter of What Do I Want To Use?

    All I need is a Jon boat or a semi-V 17'. When I lived in Michigan, I had a Sea Nymph 16'-10" aluminum semi Vee. In MI, there was something about stay under 17' It was side console with a 40 horse Mercruiser. It had two fishing platforms with chairs, live well, trolling motor and electronics.

    A bear raided my garden. It ate all my romaine lettuce. As it has been a cool Spring, the lettuce was excellent quality. Next to add insult to injury, he tore up the porch screens.
    There was 2 heavy rains last night. The rain drops were so big, we thought it was hail. That blocked the dogs hearing it. As I'm not a happy camper, the dogs are even braking and growling at the wind chimes.

    I hear you, I picked up a 3.2m Inflatable hard bottom by Quicksilver. It can accept a 25hp motor, but my 35# Minn Kota my 9.9 Mecury also works. I've yet to get it wet though. The one thing I'll add is a Bimini style top, from there a can add a clear vinyl front and sides for wet weather. It's got a 1000 lb capacity so I have lots of buoyancy, so I'm not in fear of too much stuff. The boat floor and oars is 75# so I can manage it in 2 lifts.

    Cool, I wondered how it worked out for you. I'm glad you found a great solutio.

    When I worked, fishing was where I could totally relax.

    My all time favorite fishing platform was a canoe. I bought a Jon boat for stability to take my grandson fishing.
    I also fished local tournaments, hence the bass boats.

    I know, strakes give a planing hull lift and lateral stability. At the stern, there is a flat or pad that the boat runs on at high speed.

    I'm going to sell my Champion 181 dual console bass boat. Champions are trim tail or instead of where the sides meet the stern being a corner, it is a chamfer. Trim tail means it can do a U-turn at high speed.
    80's Champion Bass boat demonstration video. Shows these boats d


    Basically, I don't need a 65 MPH boat anymore.


    Time passes and around 18' Jon boat with a 40 to 50 HP would fit our needs better now than a bass boat rocket.

    The above water ones are chines, In the end they became strakes. The Catch 120 has been great. the fwd hatch allows me to store all required gear for carrying or storage over off season. Lots of capacity, adjustable chair, wide enough I can stand in it without fear of it dumping me to the side. With my electric motor it goes well, even into a stiff breeze I use the paddle to steer with.

    The ones above water are to stop spray from waves. I don't know what they are called. Strakes are under the water on the bottom. They add stability.

    Speaking of boats, how does the Pelican Catch do as you've had it for a while?
