You sound like me. I start to panic when the supply gets low although I really only keep about 2000 in the rotation. All hull makes combined I probably have 15,000 and I sold quite a few this past winter.
In 12 gauge I estimate about 6000 hulls of which about half are once fired and the other half is in reloading production or rotation. These are mostly Winchester AA HS 70% as well as Remington 30% (Nitro and STS and Gun Club).
Only keep Remington hulls, black, green and STS, have about 4000.
The Top Guns and Estates are bought when I find them on sale for less than $5 but are left in the trash once they're shot.
Gave away a couple of thousand AA's as they just didn't want to work in my MEC 9000
I have 7500 STS and Nitro's and about 1500 AA's once fired.
I'm worried I'm running low.
Also have 18 flats of new I'm saving for a special occasion. Just
not sure what that might be yet!
Shot Las Vegas last Fall and they had flats of STS's. After talking
for awhile I got 3 flats of 2 3/4 dram 1oz 8's for $225.00. When I
got home the Boss Lady asked me if I had hauled anything home from
Vegas. Of course I said how would anyone be stupid enough to haul
goodies 460 miles from NV to CA. They are still in the garage
hidden from sight! I think I might shoot some this summer.
My Doctor keeps asking me if I have all my paperwork in order. Not
sure what he means by that.
She goes to most all the shoots with me, but when I ask her to go through
the garbage bins for Rems and AA's, all of our friends move about 50 feet away from me. Not sure why they do that, I shower everyday.
