Ammo Wanted
The title says it all “Ammo Wanted” whether it be 22LR, 223 rem (or Nato what ever your flavor), 22-250 or even hotter 220 swift! Store shelves are somewhat stocking up at exorbitant prices and that fun-loving plinking round that just seems to be more valuable than gold, yes the 22 long rifle.
If you are trying to cope with the pulsating shortages and infrequent supplies to be hoarded, you have already noticed brass, primers, powder and bullets at a scarcity. I reload most everything I shoot and that includes a tiny 25acp! talk about a test of finger dexterity and at 1.3 grains of powder per reloaded round a pound of powder will last a life time. Bring the 300 Weatherby Magnum to the bench and that monster wants 80 grains of a particular powder per reload. Now the powder is going fast so where do you go to purchase components and loaded ammo affordably? You could drive around to local gun shops checking daily for inventory drinking up that fuel at $2.60 a gallon ( for today).
I found a web site search engine that will look everywhere for current in stock availability in “real time”. Weather it be Cor-Bon ammo, Underwood Ammo, or bulk surplus corrosive if you choose they are all listed. So grab a beverage (non alcoholic since you are dealing with ammunition) and check out this link.

I’ll post more when I find the sites that are trusted and not scams (like “Personal Choice Outfitters” major scan site)

Leatherwood Hi-Lux Optics PentaLux scopes


Hi-Lux TAC-V 4-20X50 SF IR (3)




Leatherwood Hi-Lux Optics PentaLux scopes


With the 2015 Shot Show behind us now I was excited to hear Leatherwood/Hi-Lux is offering a new 5X zoom optics line. The PentaLux TAC-V scopes are based on a “Five Ratio” magnification range offered in 2-10x42mm and 4-20x50mm models.  Build with a second focal plane illuminated reticule, 30mm one-piece tube and designed for the serious long range shooter. With a price close to half of what you would pay for other 5x zoom capable optics this Leatherwood offering is sure to be noticed among the shooting community!  One interesting factor is with the 5x zoom (2-10 & 4-20) these scopes are shorter than other comparable 5x zoom scope.


TAC-V models offer MIL adjustment each click with either the windage or elevation turret moves bullet impact .01 mil. @ 100 meters.  TAC-V models will have an all new illuminated etched glass reticle with ranging scales and hold-over aiming marks in both MRAD and MOA.  The side parallax/focus adjustment is moved back and to the left side following suit with other optics manufactures (the 45 degree adjustment knob is unique to Leatherwood/Hi-Lux).

I have noticed point of impact drift while dialing power range with other brand scopes, you won’t find that issue with a Leatherwood! They just plain out hold zero.
