    I just like the fact that Mike was buying 600 rounds. My kind of guy. Bet that was all you could carry or there'd have been more, eh?:D

    Sure glad none of those landed on anyone's toe. It might have tingled a little.

    I think Mike is doing what I'm doing now. Watching for good deals to restock shelves as the crunch subsides.

    On another note, have any of you finished an 80% AR receiver? This is the bottom part of the AR that holds the clip.:wink: Looking for advice and pitfalls.

    600 rounds is a pretty good amount.

    What did you pay for it Mike?

    I like the 250 round mega packs. Generally cheaper, and easier to carry. :)

    I think they were in the $45.00 range for Winchester brand.

    Okay - here is the video - I can't remember who first showed me this, but it's an excellent, entertaining and informative video that test ammunition and clears up any myths or notions we might have about it.

    They test it by, dropping it, shooting it, running it over with a bull dozer, burn it.. etc... they even do a simulated gun store fire...

    Well worth watching

    I started crying and had to stop watching when they started grinding those bullet-thingys under the dozer treads.:wink:

    I bought my son 3750 rounds of CCI "AR Tactical" for his M&P 15-22 for a birthday present (I think they're probably just re-labeled Mini Mags, but that thing is kind of picky and they run really well through it). Found it on Gunbroker.com and the guy I bought it from said he was going to nominate me for father of the year. My wife just rolled her eyes when he unwrapped the very heavy package.

    Wow. 28,000 rounds and 18,000 rounds in bonfires, and no penetration at all of a second layer of 1/2 sheet rock, even at just 15". 115,000 rounds in a stockroom fire simulation, and no serious damage, just a lot of noise! And after nearly 5 minutes of out of control fire, the fully involved stock room fire was controlled in @10 seconds, with a substantial amount of the inventory visibly undamaged.

    Really blows holes in the worry that someone's home stock of ammo is a hazard to others.

    I'd copy that video, and drop it off at the Bass Pro shop offices, with an explanation that some of their staff is dispensing erroneous info to their customers.

    I really like my HK P30. I like the 15 round double stacker Magazine.
