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.
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.
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.
Step 2: Add cartridge development group
Clicking the ‘+’ sign will open a new screen - New Cartridge Development Group.
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.
After filling in all details and clicking save, you will see that the left-side menu has been updated with all of the details.
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.
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.
