First topic message reminder :

I had a long discussion with Curtis Shipley at Georgia Arms earlier today.  They are currently manufacturing wadcutter ammo specifically for the S&W Model 52.  They were able to obtain a large quantity of small pistol primers, making this possible, with a lot more on the way.  George shoots this ammo in his own Model 52.  He told me the new ammo would be similar to the Federal wadcutters we were all able to shoot what now feels like a lifetime ago.

I told Curtis I would post this information here in the Bullseye forum.  

I can't find the information yet on their website www.georgia-arms.com   .....from what Curtis told me, manufacturing is now in process.  He told me he would provide all the information to the person who handles incoming calls, Dee, so hopefully early this coming week we will all be able to place orders.  The direct phone line is 770-459-5117.

This came about because a friend of mine strongly recommended my trying the regular ammo made by Georgia Arms for revolvers.  One thing led to another, and I ended up talking to Curtis.  

I hope you all find this information useful.

I have seen ammo packaged like that for sale at gun shows for many years. Most people who buy this ammo, especially reloads, are not reloaders themselves so they just shoot them and leave the brass and boxes laying. This reduces cost to the manufacturer and waste in the trash.
I kinda like following those shooters so I pick up their once fired brass and sometimes get boxes too.

The price looks fine in today's market, but I am not a fan of Bagged Ammo. I owned a commercial reloading operation in the 70s and early 80s and have been reloading since the 60s. All my ammo was and is now always boxed. Might not matter for Bullseye, but as a 1,000 Yard Bench Rest Shooter, I am anal about my ammo.
