    I did not vet any of this, nor do i care, i reload, and well, when ammo can is full, i grab another, and when i go shooting, i'm sure to take enough to feed a squad, so count means nada. now if it was empty brass, boy howdy, i'd like to know. i always try to have enough primers for the amount of empty brass i have on hand, which means i've reloaded at least 50k of 9mm, and 15k of .45acp and then there is the lonely long ass c artridges of .38 spl, and 357 mama.

    happy thursday, gonna go out now and re load a k or so.

    The number on the loose 45 acp in a 50 can is about right.   I bought a 50 cal can for $200 and it had 1350 bullets in it.

    I also have a 50 can with loose .308 in it and the 640 number sounds about right too.

    Need to add weight to amount of rounds. Just so I know what size hand truck I'll need.

    I only get 480 5.56 and 600 9mm per 30cal can. Although, I may be a little anal... :whistle
