Add generic cartridge

This feature allows users to add/build a generic cartridge, that is not explicitly associated with any specific firearm in the inventory.

Once a firearm has been added to an inventory, it appears in the cartridge screen and you can create ammunition associated with that firearm.

Default menu with firearms.

From time to time you may want to make ammo that’s not associated with anything. Shotgun shells, Luger or 223 that can be used across all firearms in that chambering... Reloading Studio allows you to do this using ‘generic cartridge’ feature.

Using this feature is almost identical to adding Cartridge Development Group and a new Batch, with a small handful of extra options to tinker with.

Step 1: add generic cartridge record

When you click on the ‘add generic cartridge’ button, a new and undefined ‘firearm’ will appear in the left-side main menu of the cartridge screen.

Undefined generic cartridge record.

Step 2: Add cartridge development group

Clicking the ‘+’ sign will open a new screen - New Cartridge Development Group.

Add new Cartridge Development Group to generic cartridge record.

Step 3: Assign names

Because this record is not associated with any firearm, we need to manually tell the application what firearms these cartridges will be for; and assign it a new cartridge development group name.

Assignign new names to generic cartridge.

New names added.

After filling in all details and clicking save, you will see that the left-side menu has been updated with all of the details.

New names assigned and saved.

Step 4: Delete

The only noticeable difference at this stage is the delete function. While deleting a batch or all batches is the same as normal ‘add batch’ workflow, deleting the entire record is a little different.

To delete an entire generic cartridge record, you will need to click on the ‘-‘ sign in the corresponding entry on the left-side menu.

Delete generic cartridge.

Congratulations! You are done. From here on, the process of working with generic cartridges is identical to adding a new Cartridge Development Group and adding a new Batch.
