I still have some catalogs from the mid 90's, amazing how cheap everything was. 1k 55gr FMJ .224 bullets, $34.86 Winchester brand. RCBS primer flip tray $2.84.
Back then you bought books, read magazines, read catalogs to figure out reloading.
Still glad Brownells sends out that HUGE yearly paper catalog , wide pages so it sits flat without effort.
Funny you mentioned 55gr FMJ bullets, was clearing out some storage boxes the other day ...and found two 250 count bags of them labeled 8 dollars each ( Bought em at a gun show, no clue what year ). 16 bucks for 500 bullets, those were the days.
