Just picked up a new rifle, looking to see if anyone has any ammo they can spare? Looking for plinking rounds for the most part, however let me know what you’ve got. Thanks

I picked up an 1885 Uberti Hi Wall awhile back and was looking too. Ended up buying brass and bullets and rolling my own. You can load at Trapdoor Levels for more pleasant shooting too.
Nothing cheap about 45/70, that's for sure. New Starline Brass was 1.25 a case after shipping, and as i recall 405gr Lead bullets were close to .50 each.
Still haven't shot it yet though. :facepalm2:

Sportco in fife had a bunch of buffalo bore today. I'd say 9 plus boxes. At almost 90 a box I doubt its going anywhere anytime soon.

Ouch! Not to mention that would be the same reaction when you pulled the trigger on those loads.

No luck with ammo locally. Available online about $50 a box plus the hazmat fee. Going to try and track down brass and bullets to reload some.

Ammo is not a hazmat item or dangerous goods. You should not be paying an additional fee.
