Default I'm OK With That...

I'm going to imitate the Hornady Hornet ammo and hopefully get their precision as well. The 35-grain V-Max bullets in the Hornady factory ammo I have, have cannelures. The bullets they sell for reloading don't. That concerns me. Nevertheless, that's not the subject of this post.


I went looking on-line for the Hornady V-Max, 35-grain, MPN #22252 bullets. The 'local' (Anchorage) Cabelas has them in stock, so, online, I put two boxes in the 'cart'. Shipping was going to be $10+. Hmm... I didn't want to make a 110-mile RT to south Anchorage that would cost about $16 in gas plus the time wasted on the road. However, there was a note that if I added something worth $10.02 or more to my cart, (making the total at least $50), shipping would be free. I found a Shakespeare ice-fishing Ugly Stik for $13. Added to my cart, the shipping went to zero. That makes the Ugly Stik $3 and I get the bullets and rod delivered to my 'door' for free.


Like I said, I'm OK with that.
