Now THAT'S What I Call Bling!

OK Boys and Girls. Today we are going to talk about a very important currency of the future. It's called AMMO. (Pronounced a-MO, as in MO power, MO security, and MO of it.)

Yeah, I know I sound like a kook here, but sometimes I have a very practical side of me. And frankly, having ammo on hand is practical. But with all of the legends, myths, and political influence out there, it's getting a bit frustrating trying to find just the right ammo that you rely on being there when you need it. And remember folks,

I've always said that even if you're not comfortable having a firearm in the house, I still recommend that you stack up on ammo.  So, where's my favorite little spot for ammo?  www.ammoforsale.com  How original, eh? Oh well. I tried it. I liked it. That's it.

I’ve had the occasion recently to try out a new line of ammo.  I have to say. I think I’m in love with www.ammoforsale.com So, here’s what I tested and how it panned out.

Magtech 9mm Luger (115gr) – These came with the standard 9mm round-nose, full-metal-jacketed bullet seated in good, reloadable brass, and appearing to use an anvil primer. I ran these through a standard Beretta 92FS (tests 1 and 2) and a standard Gen 3 Glock 17 (tests 3 and 4) with my standard battery of four-target tests, which consisted of (test 1) ten rounds of slow-fire for accuracy, (test 2) ten rounds of two-shot double-taps, (test 3) fifteen rounds of three-shot triple-taps, and, finally, (test 4) fifteen shots of slow-fire for accuracy. All rounds functioned flawlessly with no stoppages, no misfires, and no feeding problems. Though it is hard to find a round that won’t pass through these two firearms, the same can not be said for the basic accuracy of several 9mm rounds that I’ve tested. These rounds passed my accuracy test with no problems, which shows a consistency in the bullet weight, the measured powder load, and the overall cartridge length (bullet seating). Of course, your accuracy mileage may vary since the shooter is usually the weak link in the firing process. Overall, this is a cartridge I would have no problem recommending to fellow shooting enthusiasts.

Seller & Bellot .40cal (180gr) – These came with the standard .40cal snub-nose, full-metal-jacketed bullet seated in good, reloadable brass, and using a sealed boxer primer. I ran these through a standard Beretta 96FS Brigadier (tests 1 and 2) and a standard Gen 3 Glock 22 (tests 3 and 4) with my standard battery of four-target tests, which consisted of (test 1) ten rounds of slow-fire for accuracy, (test 2) ten rounds of two-shot double-taps, (test 3) fifteen rounds of three-shot triple-taps, and, finally, (test 4) fifteen shots of slow-fire for accuracy. All rounds functioned flawlessly with no stoppages, no misfires, and no feeding problems. It is hard to find a round that won’t pass through these two firearms, and these rounds were no different. The same can not be said for the basic accuracy of several .40cal rounds that I’ve tested. These rounds passed my accuracy test with no problems, which shows a consistency in the bullet weight, the measured powder load, and the overall cartridge length (bullet seating). Of course, your accuracy mileage may vary since the shooter is usually the weak link in the firing process. Overall, this is a cartridge I would have no problem recommending to fellow shooting enthusiasts.

.50cal ammo can – Sure, it’s just meant to storage ammo or other supplies, but you have to admit that most .50cal ammo cans that you see look like they’ve been on the muzzle-end of a day at the range or dragged through every available mud-hole and sandpit east of the Mississippi before getting to you. Not so with this one; repainted to look near-new; clean inside and out; this can is one that you could set on the front table as a decoration – with the right doily on top, of course. Seriously though, this can is in good shape and great working condition. If all of their cans come looking like this, I know where to find my new supplier.

I believe you’ll find a broad range of offerings, and respectable pricing. Enjoy—no really, ENJOY!

Add in shipping charges and the deal isn't so great?

When it comes to ammo, I don't focus on finding deals--the only aspect of my life in which I can say that's the case. I focus on supply. I don't know about your experiences but here in Utah county I'm continually finding SUPPLY at my stores to be a problem. Product costs and shipping costs fluctuate. But the supply is my focus.

I too count on supply. There for a while I couldn't hardly find any 9mm for my Sig. And when I did I loaded up on them and sometimes at the expense of other things. I like that website you listed. I can't wait to share with my husband!

Kellene,
You should give www.ammunitiontogo.com a try as well. Very good supply on all calibers, competitive prices, and reliable service. I'm not affiliated with the site in any way, just a satisfied repeat customer.

Kellene,

Ilive in Syracuse. We have 3 WalMart stores within 6 miles of me - Layton, Clinton, and here in Syracuse.

I visit all 3 of them regularly and I've not seen them without ammo in well over a year now.

I have a 40 S&W and I buy 2 boxes at a time (store limit) every other month or so. I've been buying Federal rounds priced about $13 per box of 50. And no shipping charges!!

I would consider higher pricing if supply were a problem but like I said, no supply problem in over a year now.

I figure I can lay off a little after I have stocked up around 10,000 rounds or so. If I need more than that I figger I may be in more trouble than I can handle. 10k rounds should give me plenty of personal protection plus some for bartering with.

Just curious, why did you choose the 9mm?

9 mm isn't my only choice...enough said there.

What do you consider acceptable accuracy?

It went where I told it to. I'm a sharp shooter, so that means quite a bit to me. :-)

Kellene,

aimsurplus.com also has great deals on ammo and also high quality factory mags for rifles and handguns. I am a satisfied customer. sorry if I wasn't supposed to plug them in this forum. I agree with Kellene, get it while its available!

I second aim surplus. Good pricing, specials come up often, and the service is great.
Regardless of where one shops, the idea of stocking up is sound. All things are bound to get more expensive soon, and ammo will be no exception.

I did a lot of reloading as a kid (16 years old) from casting my own lead bullets to testing different loads. I have my eye on a little reloading kit to start again. Also a great way to introduce teenagers about velocity times mass, cause and effect and basic physics and chemistry. I'm still building my stash of bling. but I'm looking to make it something I can manufacture in the future. I make bread from scratch now I'll make ammo from scratch.
FYI Revolvers tend to be a bit more forgiving as far as different ammo, Auto pistols tend to be a fire or never fire if it doesn't like the ammo. If you have a auto pistol find an ammo it likes and stick with it until you can replicate it. Practice, practice and then practice some more,all that matters is rounds on target.

Bottling butter using the marbles/oven sanitation and boiling the jar lids. Marbles help a lot on the shake to mix. I'm cooling at room temp rather than the fridge, first batch had a grainy texture but I didn't use marbles and it was my first try. All jars sealed no problem. One thing I hated being in the "Field" with the Army was no butter or margarine for bread.
Herb butter are next to try, since I seem to have the basic skills done.

I use sportsman guide and cheaperthandirt. I have had very good luck from sportsman guide. They also have a lot of speciality items and free catalogs.

Kellen , love your blogs.
