Doug I've been ordering on-line for things I can't get around here locally - thing is it is kinda like a treasure hunt. I currently have these seperate orders active and waiting anxiously for arrival.
Bass Pro - another matching rifle case
MidwayUSA - 45/70 brass
Natchez - 450 Marlin brass
Midsouth - 444 brass
I just received a bunch of jacketed bullets from Midway & Midsouth just last week. I typically don't place large orders so I just buy when I find it.... in reasonable quantities.
At the last gun show I picked up primers, powder and bulk 22LR. My regular supplier of boolits didn't make it to the show because they were short on supply. I'll catch em next time hopefully.
No guns in my near future so I'll wait to see more pics of your new 444.

That's interesting Scott. Brass ordered from three different sources.

Last week I scored some small rifle and large pistol primers from Gallensons. The powder shelves looked like the wolves had been at them.
I wish we would warm up I want to shoot my new dueling tree.

Received my first 1911 yesterday. Full sized, 8 rd, two tone stainless Sig Sauer with three mags and a paddle holster. Two days ago my ups guy delivered 1000rds of Federal 45 acp fmj's and 100 rds of Federal hydo shock personal defense. Ready for the weekend.
The only gun related thing I've ordered in a while was a new butt stock for a straight grip Marlin to go on my 1894C project gun that I got ordered on 31 Dec and it came in around the 8th. Got it in from Numrich and it fit like a charm. No more stock with a couple of inches cut off for me.
Aim Small.. Hit Small
What matters is marksmanship, shot selection, and bullet construction (mass, diameter and expansion behavior). These are things that don't tend to be found in ballistics tables
357 Magnum For when you just absolutely, positively have to shoot something.
I've got an order for some reloading equipment from Natchez and they weren't kidding about a two week wait. I also have some gun parts ordered from Numrich.
