    13, the only factory ammo I buy other than rimfire and shotgun is the new Leverelevution for my 30-30. I'll reload that too if Hornaday ever releases the bullets only!

    LOL I had to stop and count on my fingers . . . counting handgun, I reload for 14 or 15. ETA: Shotgun makes 15 or 16. . .

    I seldom buy factory ammo either, but have bought quite a bit of Federal Gold Medal Match .308/175s lately, for long range .308 plinking when I don't have time to load and accuracy demands are like 1 to 2 MOA, and then I'm always buying some kind of MilSurp in bulk for the rattle-guns that I don't bother loading decent ammo for.

    I think I load for 18 different cartridges, but I'd have to look at the bench to make sure.

    The last time I bought factory ammo was a few years ago when I was out of town and needed a box of .40 to do some handgunning with friends. Otherwise it's been a long, long time.
