Guys, been doing some thinking. I'd trust most every one of you guys that I have talked with outside of this forum with just about anything. Most of us are cut from the same pattern or we wouldn't be here. I hope you guys know I'd be willing to help ALL of you in times of need. Well, we are all pretty much in time of need at the moment. So how about this:

What if we use this thread as a way to post things we are looking for. Ammo, brass, bullets, boots, who knows what. If it's a hard to find item, put it on here. Maybe someone has it laying around the garage. Or if someone happens to come across an item in our local outdoor stores / gun shops that we know another member is looking for, we can pick it up for them. They pay ya back for it, and the cost of shipping, and ya send it to them. Or trade something?? I'd be willing to do this for you guys as I am looking at buying the local gun shop here in town. I volunteer there a lot, so I know what comes and goes on those shelves. I know there might be some details to work out that I'm not thinking of, but those can be ironed out, I would think. You would have to keep up with your post, and update it when your need has been filled.

I need 7mm Rem Mag brass or ammo at the moment. A buddy sent me his gun to mount a scope and zero for him. If it's brass, I don't care who made it, or how many pieces, or how many times it has been fired. I trust that you wouldn't sell me something you wouldn't use yourself. If it's ammo, I don't care what weight or who made it.

If this is a bad idea, then let's just scrap it. I'm just trying to help us all... somehow.

In this day and time it is a good idea.

Just a data point I saw 9 mm 115 FMJ at my local shop today.
$199 / 200 rounds

BTW I just sold off 35 rounds of 7 mm mag brass to a buddy on 6 BR

I may have 15 ish new if that helps

If it jams force it! If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

I received an email last week and I believe ADG just shipped a batch of 7mm Magnum brass to their dealers. You may be able to find out if you email them. Their website shows contact info..

RAPTORTRAPPER: VERY GOOD IDEA. MAY I SUGGEST TO ALL THAT IT BE HANDLED AS FOLLOWS: IF YOU NEED SOMETHING, SHOOTING RELATED, YOU POST, AS A SEPARATE TOPIC, "I NEED ........" AND SEE WHAT SOMEONE MAY HAVE.

Great idea! As a gunsmith, I never throw anything away so I'm sure I have something someone can use.

Sounds great to me. i spend most of my time reloading bottle neck cartridges and have only recently gotten into straight walled. I'm looking locally (Minnesota) for a couple hundred large pistol primers and could trade some factory ammo for it.

Glad you guys are on board with the idea. I'm going to log on with my phone while down at Cabelas / sportsmans warehouse tomorrow and go through this list. I'll grab what I can. I'll be at the local store this afternoon, and will do the same there.

I'll buy it, and if you guys don't end up needing it, I can list it on gunbroker and sell it there. No harm, no foul!

Man, Sportsman's Warehouse and Cabela's are both down to nothing. Well, they had the oddball stuff, but that was it.

100 primers. 10 sleeves in a brick. That's what we've always called them at the shop. One tray.

I?ve got pretty near anything one could possibly need as far as powder or primers, but I need some 209 shotgun primers. Plenty to trade.

I need a set of 9mm reloading dies if ya got some laying around. My cousin and his wife both shoot 9mm, but I do not. I told them I would start reloading for them if they bought their own components. Thanks guys.

I'm not to proud to admit that I go to our local gun range from time to time and pick up brass. I have ADHD and going there helps me get out of the house, and allows me to get free brass.

Today, I picked up some 38 special. Looks like it was fired within the last 24 hours. about 50 pieces or so. If ya want it, I'll ship it to ya for the price of shipping.

Also have roughly 75 casings for .45acp that I picked up today. Most look really good. Some look like they've been laying on the ground a few days. I'd run them through my own gun, if I had a 45, so I picked them up. Same offer applies- If ya want them, let me know, and just pay for the shipping.

I don't reload for, or have, either of these calibers, so don't need them. The brass is in the tumbler right now, but will not be de-primed or prepped in any other way.
