"Oddball" calibers Part Deux..........

So............................ For the sake of discussion, we'll say an "oddball" caliber is one you can't get ammo for in Walmart.

Which ones do you shoot that qualify ?? (Excluding .22 LR haha !!)

I shoot a custom MGM Encore rifle barrel in 445 Super Mag! No special reason.....Luckily it will shoot 44mag ammo just in case!

The .300 Blackout and .45 LC ammo can be had at, at least, a couple of our local Walmarts............ Yep.

I have a slightly different definition, any cartridge dropped from production....from standard off the shelf rifles... This limits it somewhat but finding loaded or brass can be a real challenge for them compared to most listed...not sure if anyone still produces these in standards but here's my new list.. 22 VL, 375 win, 307, 8mm mag, all SAUMS, all WSSM's, 7 br, and the 7 rum is getting there...


I've left out wildcats that parent casings are still fairly common.. Like my 357 Herrett !
