I can't find .410 shot shells anywhere local. I can order them online, but they are really expensive.

I have a Hi Standard .22 pistol that my dad handed down to me. I remember when he got that and was always amazed at just how good he was with it. My brother was a very good pistol marksman too. I have seen my dad throw a can and rapid fire that gun and keep the can dancing till the clip was empty. I would always go count the hold and all 10 shots hit every time. I was watching dad and my uncles betting on shots one day and dad was up a lot of money. My uncle said double or nothing that you can't shoot the ball off the antenna of my car. Dad pulled the pistol and popped that ball right off the antenna! I thought wow! Any way years and years later dad told me he was just trying to let Bill win his money back and just shot that way. it was a fluke but he let them all know it was the real deal for years! haha. Any way i am not a weapons expert by any means. I am more of a .22 and shotgun kind of feller. I do have some old military guns that my boys use for deer hunting. I have shot a lot of .22s over the years and I will say that Hi Standard is the best shooting .22 pistol I have every handled.

I have a couple .410s and the last time I shot them the shells were very expensive. I didn't have any trouble finding them but I have not looked in the last few years.

It looks like I need to get into reloading. I can't find 22-250 ammo either. The shelves are full of .243 though around here.

Regrettably reloading is nowhere near as economical as it used to be. Prices and component availability across the board are insane. You do have an awesome shop in the Boise area that specializes in reloading. Cliff is super deep into all things reloading.

True, same thing here.

When ammo became scarce, everybody decided it was time to learn reloading. I just read an article that implies that ammo is going to get scarce again due to Ukraine. And of course, price will again go up.

It doesn’t matter if it is ammo, fuel or anything else. When there’s an opportunity to raise the prices, manufacturers will. Even when oil is cheap prices are high because of “high demand”.

Firearms are fascinating pieces of equipment that have specific purposes for a job, thus so many calibers and configurations In addition to the history of the firearm themselves as well as the manufacturers. Truly amazing tools that are collected by many of us to be appreciated

And they take up a lot less room than car collections.

Oil is generally bought in advance so the price is based on that not current prices. And there is little spare capacity.
