I come visit. Bring choke ammo.  :shaka:
I should.  Plan ahead, make a big order of .22 lr ammo and visit.  Hopefully the left over will be less than weight limit for airlines. . . :hmm:

If I remember correctly if you have an 11 pound limit that equals only about 2 1/2 bricks of .22.

If I can fly to AZ on Alaska, it's 50 lbs max. . .  8)

I remember doing the number on number of rounds to 11 lbs max, but that was for when I was flying with 9 mm and 5.56/.223.  It wasn't much. 

2 1/2 bricks of .22 would still help pad the stash.  ;D

When my wife and I flew Hawaiian to the mainland I ordered 5 bricks of 22 to be delivered to my brother’s house. When we flew home 2 1/2 brinks went into each suitcase. It was only 2,500 rounds but it did help pad my dwindling supplies.

When I went to Cali in October, a buddy and I were going to try to find some gun shops to check out.  I was going to look for ammo, but learned (or was reminded) about Cali's "Safety for All Act" where non-residents can't by ammo.  Could've brought back quite a bit of ammo since we had 8 in our party.  88lbs of ammo, but no. . .

Next time come visit to a free state and you can buy all the ammo you want. Just don’t sniff my cat.  :oops:

Kaleoarms started calling people today regarding their ammo shipment.

Picked up mine today.



Found that Lapua changed their boxes and design on Midas+  (Left: old, Right: new)

To all the happy Kaleo customers getting their brand new 22LR:

Anyone feel like selling me single boxes of the Lapua and SK and whatever y'all are picking up. I'll come to you and pay cash.

Just ordered an ammo support box for the Eley boxes.
Eley has a boxing system unlike the orthodox method.
It has been a pain to set up rounds individually.
I think Joe Ettershank (see Facebook) has the problem solved.






He also has other boxes for the orthodox ammo like Lapua, RWS, SK, etc.

Got some of my test ammo too.  I’ll probably order more end of January.  Just wondering if you see a big accuracy difference in
lot #s.  This shortage sucks because you can’t really buy test lots…once you find one that shoots well the chances of it still being in stock is slim to none.

Heads up to check with Jen before you order. Last I spoke to her Jan shipment was going to be a “last then evaluate” situation. Where mid-Jan (fatter the holiday) would be “safe” cutoff date. If you heard otherwise recently, cool. Maybe we’ll get them to continue their awesome service.

Hey, I think it will be a good weekend to test ammo.

Windy.com says not too much wind.  Guy Hagi is on/off on the weather, but I think it will be good this weekend.

Thanks for the heads up, but I don’t think I can make it out to the range this weekend.  Prob have to work.  A couple of buddies are going to have a training day, so if I am able to make it out, I’ll prob shoot some with them.
