Is this a good deal right now?

Recommended Posts

Lucked out at a LGS and found some Federal Premium Gold Medal Small Magnum Pistol Match primers. PN# GM200M

Had a 500 (5 of 100 packs) limit. Out the door for about 33.50$ for the 500..  Didnt need them, but figured in the current atmosphere, i better just grab them.. 

I dont load match grade ammo, but in a pinch i guess i could use these for some .357 ammo...

At this price, think its worth going back and trying to get more?

Sell them on Gunbroker!:lol:

 

So damn tempting! That shiit is crazy on there!    I'll hang on to them or trade them to someone for something i can use..

But Im seriously considering selling a case of federal .45acp to offset the first year capital improvement fee at CJRPC that i just submitted the application to joing......

There are new owners out there who would be happy to pay you for a case of .45acp! I also have lots of extra ammo that I bought cheap but I can't bring myself to gouge any fellow gun owner!

So title your sale as "To fellow Democrat buyers only,  1,000 rounds of .45acp, only 95 cents per round!  $950.00 and it's yours!":)

Heck, im a nice guy.. 900$ for Dems, 600$ for Repubs... At least 600$ covers that damn capital improvement fee..

But the voter will have to show me their voter registration papers.. cause we know how badly the Dems will lie to get what they want. :icon_e_wink:

You sir, have no excuse for not rolling your own!  

too much factory ammo on hand and NO range time!   Gonna start rolling soon just for the enjoyment.. But dont want to roll to much until i can shoot some off and make sure im doing things right. Hence the initiative to join CJRPC that has ample hours for me to get there, unlike my membership at Range-14 that never seems allow me get there and shoot.

That’s a fine collection you have there....in such a short time.  Good luck with rolling some rounds.   BTW what kind of press is that?

yea, i aquired a lot of stuff in the past less than a year of getting started..  Theres plenty more things not even in those pics.. :B:):

 

The press is a Lyman T-Mag turret.. Looks a little odd with my MEC 650 right behind it.. Theres some details on another thread i started for my homemade press mount.

Please don't store primers and powder together...

 

NFPA has guidelines on storing powder..follow them

Duh... Im smarter than that; i should have thought of this on my own right...  I'll google up and look over the NFPA guidelines you suggest..  Thanks for the tip @USRifle30Cal and for looking out for us newb's...  :good:

    • Every ones pretty jammed with work.... My usual turn around is a day or so.. we are about 3 days give or take now.  May i ask what kinda brake your having installed?    When was the last time you spoke to him?
    • Thanks again.  I think the 3.5 hours may turn into 6 or 7 for me but it seems doable.
    • I've had a full frame apx for about a year now. I got it pre covid for 350 and it was a solid buy. Trigger stock is pretty fantastic for a cheap plastic framed gun. I put a reduced power striker spring in and it felt really nice pre and post install. The mag release is very positive and easy to hit. Slide hold open is hard to use like a standard Glock one. I wouldn't mind an aftermarket extended one like Glocks have. Especially hard when used as a lefty slide release. Fit and finish is solid. The modularity is inferior to that of the sig. It requires a lot more operations and the spring and pin fiddling can be a pain the first few times. Not really a big deal unless u like swapping frames around like a mad man, but I do have one with finger grooves and one with out and I've swapped back and forth at least 2 or 3 times. And it's easier to do each time. However, actual field stripping is simpler than even the Glock. However, the pin can be rather stiff to rotate initially. The dingus for the firing pin black is weird but I don't foresee it causing any issues. Not particularly sure why it needed to exist but w/e. Sights are good. Nothing to write home about but are easier to pick up on when drawing the pistol. The slide design is meh. Tim from MAC is right. It's not as easy to grip as traditional slide cuts are, but it does the job. I have not put it through a mud test to see how slippery it may get, but I can assume MACs results are quite representative of the nature of the beast. Mags are steel which is cool. Solidly built.  And weren't stupid expensive when I started getting myself a uspsa setup.  Overall for 350 bucks it was a steal when I got it on GunBroker pre covid pricing. I know they are gone up since. I'd say even at a price comparable to a Glock 19, a Glock needs a trigger to feel like the apx does in terms of shootability, so I'd say it's still an ok alternative to another Glock should you have one. But if you want really good 3rd party support, glock would be the clear winner. As that's what hurts the apx most.
    • Oh hey!! Welcome! I also live in Morris County (I'm from Morris Township) and recently bought my first home! I'm not so new to shooting/ guns as I've been shooting for almost 20 years and a gun owner for almost 15. Local public ranges have turned me off with such long wait times lately so I joined a private one (Cherry Ridge in Vernon. It's a drive, but scenic and worth it to me) Locally, I'm about 10-15 minutes from the shotgun practice range at the Chester WMA, Black River. And I head there for some quick clay busting when the mood strikes.  Feel free to reach out to me if you wanna chat about local spots!  Rhi
