MidwayUSA is offering blemished bullets at very significant discounts — up to 51% off normal pricing. These are quality bullets from major manufacturers. However, they may have a variety of superficial external flaws, such as waterspots, discoloration, or tarnished jackets. If you need bullets for plinking, varminting, or game hunting, you can save big bucks with these “blems”. For example, .224-caliber 55gr Soft-Point bullets (stock #324450) are now just $9.79 per hundred! And you can save on large-caliber bullets as well. One of our researchers just ordered some .338 blems for fire-forming purposes.

Some High Power shooters on the Forum asked about carts for carrying their gear to the range. You can certainly purchase a factory-made, purpose-built cart that folds up and has all the bells and whistles. The Creedmoor Sports CRC-1 (photo right) is a proven, quality product that works great. You’ll find these used by top shooters at Camp Perry. But the Creedmoor CRC-1 cart costs $499.95.
For a tenth that price ($49.99), plus a few dollars more for do-it-yourself enhancements, you can have a heavy-duty cart that will haul all your gear just fine, though it doesn’t fold up.
Check out the Harbor Freight Welding Cart, item #65939. This cart is ON SALE right now for just $49.99. Overall size is 29-1/2″ L x 20″ W x 49″ H, and width between side rails is 18″. The wheels (with tires) are 20 3/4″ in diameter for smooth rolling. Consider that, if you made your own cart from scratch you could easily pay $30.00 or more just for the large-diameter wheels and axle. Do note — this cart has air-filled tires. Be sure to inflate before you go to the Range!
As sold, the Harbor Freight Welding Cart isn’t quite ready for range use. But it’s easy to add plastic side-panels on the bottom unit, and fit a barrel-holding system on the cross-tube. I also suggest bolting/welding on extra spacers on the most forward underside edge of the bottom so that, at rest, the cart tilts slightly back. This ensures rifles and gear won’t flop forward. (A bit of extra lift also keeps the bottom plate out of the dirt and gravel.)
How to Upgrade Welding Cart for Range Use
You’ll want to enclose the sides of the bottom box area so small items don’t fall out. You can tack-weld aluminum side-plates if you want a fancy appearance. I prefer to just cut sheet plastic from a home improvement store. These plastic panels can be attached with screws or even zip-ties around tubing.
Run the plastic side panels up high enough that stuff like hats and muffs don’t fall out. After transport you can transfer ammo boxes and small items to the upper box (attached to the back side of the cross-tube).
The hardest component to find may be the hard rubber blocks for the barrel keeper, but you can also make a barrel-holding block out of wood, with some carpet to protect the barrels. The nice thing about the rubber is that it can be cut to snap over the barrels so you don’t need straps. Likewise, you can drill a hole transversely through the rubber, then slot it from the bottom and it will slide over the horizontal tubing with no fasteners needed.

We know that many of our readers are 55 years of age or older (or soon will be). Your Editor just hit the 55 mark this year. But growing old isn’t all bad — many companies offer discounts for seniors. The threshhold age for discounts can range from 50 to 66, but for many programs, persons 55 or older qualify. A list of 106 companies offering senior discounts has been compiled by BradsDeals.com. On the list, you’ll find savings on groceries, restaurant meals, clothing, hard goods, cell phone plans, park admissions, hotels, car rentals, air travel and even personal services such as haircuts. We know you guys traveling to matches can benefit from the hotel and rental car discounts. CLICK HERE to download Senior Discount Company List (PDF).
Here are some of the best deals from the list (savings may vary by region):
The above list is just a small sampling of the senior discounts available. Download the entire list to see 106 companies’ senior savings programs (with eligibility requirements). You can find more discounts at www.SeniorDiscounts.com. In addition, since many senior discounts are not advertised to the public, folks over 55 should ALWAYS inquire (before you hand over your credit card) whether the store or vendor provides a senior discount. That way, you can be sure to get the most bang for your buck. Even if you only save $1.00 on a cup of coffee, that’s money saved that can be used to pay important bills, or used to buy more reloading components.
