The things you find......
On my chore list today, cleaning out a few closets and organizing a few piles. One particular pile... this one.... needed doing something fierce.
This would be the ammunition back stock that I don't use too often. It's made up of both large cans of ammunition purchased when mil-surp is cheap, and assorted dribs and drabs collected over decades. The majority of the D/D's are handloads tailored to rifles I no longer own or use. I came across a 20mm can of 7.62x54 I forgot I had, so perhaps that rifle will see a lot more use at the military rifle matches this year! I also came across a 50 cal can of 12 gauge buckshot needin shooting up and replaced.
I count 19 calibers and gauges represented, with most having more than one type of offering. There are four different loadings in 30-06, several in .444 Marlin, five in .308/7.62, four in .243, two in 45/70, three in 22-250, two in 8x56r......... etc.
