I'm going to the range too!
The clubs around me and all the public ranges owned by the state are closed.

Now practicing offhand 50ft smallbore in the woods of my back yard.

While "cleaning" my house, I discovered a few bags of empty brass. My goal now is to fill every case I find!

One other thing I've been doing now is organizing my Ammo ! Just glad I bought it 1-2 boxes at a time when it was cheap.

I've been spending a lot of time prepping 556 and 30-06 brass thats been setting in cans for over a decade. I used to be an avid reloader but in 2008 bought a lot of HXP from the CMP so didn't feel the need to reload but old habits die hard and I always picked up my brass. So now I'm just prepping to pass the time.

I'm doing the same thing with 556 and actually reloading 45ACP.

I've found in this process that reloading lube and Lee Liquid Alox do wonders on dry hands as well as WD 40.
