It is the start of Summer vacations, and for many, planting season too. But that doesn't mean you can't shoot your airgun! And you'd best, unless you want to lose your touch for the Fall hunting seasons, which will be upon us before we know it!

Quote from: Alan on December 31, 2021, 02:57:13 PMI just purchased another 30 boxes of NSA slugs. Of course the price was up about $1 a box, due to the recent spike in bulk lead prices. At least it isn't 2007 all over again! So if you have a few hard-earned (or Christmas) dollars laying around, you might think about buying a few more rounds, just in case it gets back up to 2007 prices.

Just the past 10 days, I'm well into my second box of 325. All this said...Way back when I was really shooting a lot (firearms), I was shooting about 1,500 rounds per 2-day weekends, and sometimes double that on 3-day weekends. I didn't count the 22LR, and that was usually a carton or two as well. Back then, .25¢ per round was about as cheap as I could load a .22 Hornet, and close to three times that for my 22-250AI. The 338/378 was closer to $1 a round. This didn't include wear and tear on the barrel, etc. But nowadays, the best part is, I spend about 6¢ per round. And I never worry about barrel wear!
