Stopped at a small reloading shop just because I was passing and had a few minutes.
About 6 months ago I found a really nice K31 Swiss rifle and only brass I have found was some PPU stuff. Norma brass is normally 1.60 apiece so I saw this collecting dust and snatched it up.
Match brass and all same lot#......

It seems like there were all kinds of places to go in small towns where you'd find treasures like that covered with twenty years worth of dust, up into the 90s. I think all those places have now been picked over pretty hard several times over.

I believe I shot 11 rounds at 800 with 6 hits.
I shot high first two then hit 6 of 9

I shot it two weeks later in a Vintage military match also at 800 and hit 11 of 15

Most of those stores are gone now, seems like.
