    Just bullets. I used them when I was shooting local comps at 100 yard reduced targets. They were OK, past that nothing I used them out of seemed to like them. I had bought a bunch in bulk and they have laid in a drawer for years doing nothing but make the drawer heavy. I had 9 sealed bags of 100 and one unsealed. I was offered 70-75 but I took 100 for the lot. Stock kit for the pew pew rifle was 50 bucks, so half in AR parts, and half in the Camp Perry fund.

    Great trade off on the bullets.
    Many here have no use for the gun shows.
    We had one here last weekend and it was productive.
    My needs were some 243 dies and hopefully some bullets.
    Found my dies as new for 10 bucks even had the shell holder in the box.
    Found bullets pretty cheap even some Weatherby ones from his original sporting goods store.
    Haven't found much info on them yet.
    Then it was hunting.
    Some guys says anything this side of the table 2 bucks grabbed the holsters and cleaning rod.
    Saw a mag that looked just a bit longer than it should.....flipped it over saw the 11 and knew it was an FBI one.
    asked how much for the unicorn ?.....I think I said mag but it was corralled.

    Re: Went to a gun show

    There were not a lot of screaming deals on stuff. Even the stock set, while a good deal, wasnt cheaper than one from Brownells less shipping. I know where I am going to go to sell a 03 if I have a mind to though I could undercut show prices by 30%and still feel I was ripping people off.

    They are coming to town again in Jan, and I saw 16" uppers for below interwebs pricing. I think that Sat I can go with money and a plan and peruse a bit longer. I walked the bullets around for a while and knew I wasnt shopping until I had cash in hand.

    I still like gun shows. Most folks don’t get that in many cases the marked price is just an asking price, and that negotiations often yield very reasonable results.

    Not at double value for price marked. There is no starting point except zero. Stock set was the same as Browells set that is on sale, and I had it in hand w/o shipping, I did OK.

    Not to many boneyards though. I used to like the tables that were covered in parts boxes.
