Rookie ammo branding question

I'm ashamed to ask: how do I inscribe ammo so my ranger fires iron shots as default on the h key, rather than pebbles of slay demon?

I'm probably even more of a rookie, and there's probably a better way to do it, but you can inscribe the ammo you want with "@1" and then create a keymap that goes something like "t1'[Escape][Escape][Escape]" (the Escapes may be overload, but it gets me out of being stuck in targeting mode or whatever sometimes depending on if any targets are available when activating the keymap), which will fire that ammo at the nearest available target.

The default layout command list says "h" is "fire default ammo at target" but I don't think there's a way to set a "default" ammo manually (although that might be nice, so you don't have resort to obscure inscriptions and keymaps to do something that seems so basic); the manual says "The first ammunition of the correct type found in the quiver is used." = P https://angband.readthedocs.io/en/latest/command.html

I use the roguelike keyset - so to get my preferred amo to position 0 in my quiver (to make it the default amo) I inscribe @t0

~ Go to the knowledge menu
a Display object knowledge

navigate to ammunition - iron shot

Type {@f1 to have all iron shots inscribed automatically.

Now make a keymap - on "h" if you like, or some other suitable key - *tf1.

Go to user interface options and set "use old target by default", if it isnt already.

If you use h, it wont pick pebbles anymore if you run out of iron shots.

Ohh so it sounds like @0 on the ammo through ~ would do it for firing by Tab, I'm gonna have to remember that. : )

h will fire the top of your the top of your quiver (slot 0)
To move your ammo to the top of your quiver select it, choose { to inscribe and then @f0 to move it to firing slot 1. Often I choose to inscribe ammo with @f0,=g

because I want to pick it up automatically even if I run out
