Thread: Variation how much .243 ammunition to ask for

    Variation how much .243 ammunition to ask for

    I'm putting in a variation for a .243, my question is how much ammunition do I ask for? I was thinking buy 200 hold 300.
    Is that a sensible amount?

    Hold 600, buy 500....expanding bullets count in totals whether loaded into cartridge or as components for reloading. However, I think there is a review or change to this going on.

    they tried to only let me buy 50 .22 despite them only being sold in 100s

    I used to have 1000 .22 but this time it was dropped to buy 500 hold 600, 50 .22 is a joke!!

    I have buy 300, hold 400 for .243.

    Whatever you ask for, if they try to knock it down, tell them that you intend to start reloading, so you will need a decent amount to ensure batch consistency.

    It may be worth writing that into a letter which accompanies your variation application.

    I am in L&B too and that's exactly the numbers on my licence just now. I do note that locked away this morning, there are only 17 factory rounds of 100gr Remington and 26 rounds of reloaded A-Max. As you start out with your 243, I would suggest that you need to be able to buy 4 or 5 boxes of different types and then check out which one your 243 likes best.

    Good luck. JCS

    THIS

    Depending on how many different loads you are wanting to use, you will need to have a supply of components to hand for each one. To avoid dealer shortages and price hikes, most people buy bullets, powder & the like when it's in stock or on sale/offer.
    Some types of bullet will count toward your ammunition total even though they are still in a sealed bullet box & nowhere near a cartridge case!
    I'd HOPE that this IS about to change...as it was the case for a while when any bullet could be purchased, then some were restricted, then the current situation where some types are restricted...

    Most of my calibers are buy 1000, posses 1100 - but I mainly do target shooting where we can get through several hundred rounds in a day
