So my grandfather passed recently and was an avid gun owner, shooter and reloader, having done all three for decades.

So my grandfather passed recently and was an avid gun owner, shooter and reloader, having done all three for decades. When I shot with him years ago it was his reloaded ammo. Now I'm looking at possessing supposedly 1000+ rds of 5.56, some for a very old lever action and who knows what else. Problem is the reloads are newer, and there's no telling how "there" he was mentally. I believe he shot fairly recently with others and no blown off hands. Do I trust the old man's work? Visual inspection and weighing the rounds good enough?

      She went before him

      Just throw em all out

      Never. If I don't shoot them I was thinking of selling them on like gb with the caveat of the details of it all

      Worse case scenario, get a bullet take-apart tool and pool the powder and reload it again.

      I would do that since all his reloading tools are available, but unfortunately I don't have the space for it all

        If you sell them, it's probably best to mention that you're not the one that reloaded it and don't know about it's condition

          Oh I know. And I won't be garden gnome-y and sell them near full price

          Have you opened a sample of his ammo to see how within specs his reloads are?

          How legally problematic could this be (buyer's gun blows up and he loses fingers)?
          Even if it's mentioned, selling reloads of unknown specs and quality sounds pretty risky (at least to me as German).

    May be risky shooting them, but the components are still there for reloading yourself

        You're a lucky man. Both of my grandfathers died before I was born.

    weighing with a good enough scale could let you know if they are consistent, but best practice would be to pull them apart for components and redo them yourself.

    Never shoot reloads you never did yourself. As that other anon said, breaking them down for parts and using them would be best.

    if I had a close family member pass away, the ammo he reloaded would be precious. I would personally enjoy it, at a small risk of course. Nothing good in life is without risk, even shooting itself.

    And at the end, you'll come to find out how good of a reloader he was. You owe it to him. If my grandson threw out my handloads post mortem, I'd be seetherolling in my grave.

    that's what's going to end the NRA eventually
    old fags dying off
    young fags are too busy playing vidya and watching porn to go outside, target shoot and hunt.

        Love them or hate them, they're the biggest pro-2A lobbyist. The only one with enough members/voters to really scare candidates.

          And then when new laws are on the block the NRA rolls over and lets their balls get stepped on

        Checked, but the NRA does unintentionally do one thing, they act as a lightning rod for anti-gun retards to focus on through sheer perceived size while the actually useful ones actually get the work done.

          Yes, when Tyrone shoots up a street corner so he can sell crack there instead, it's all the NRA's fault. God I hate the fucking ~~*media*~~.

    If they were your grand dads, id take 1 round of each caliber he had loaded and make a shadow box or something with them and hold on to them. The rest of em id mag dump. Best case, I got to shoot shit my grand dad loaded. Other best case, id get to be shooting with my grand dad. Either way its a win

    My reloads are of the utmost quality except for my .45-70 loads which are basically heavy bullet with heavy powder charge. I only shoot them from my No.1.

    Very simply. Get a stethoscope. If you hear a light rattle, he has powder. If it sounds hollow, get a puller and fill it per load data

      That's retarded. A small cartridge like 5.56 can be dangerously over pressure with only a couple grains over max.
