When at a gunshow, what sort of odd ammo do you look for? 44.40, 375 H&H magnum? Maybe, 30-40 Krag or 7mm Mauser? Do you look for shooting ammo, old and original boxes? What sort of shells would make your day?

I don't really look for "rare ammo" but I like to pick up any ammo in calibers that I have if I do not have any of that brand or country. Cartrige collecting as a hobby can be very expensive and I have enough hobbies and collections going already.

Ted, Don't worry I'm working on a batch of super-incendiary explosive type ammo and should have it ready to ship soon. ;):rolleyes:

Just the basic good-to-have Carcano, 8mm, and 8x56R on and for the clips, and I'd probably get some black-tip .30-06 if I ever saw any. But mostly gunshow ammo's stupidly overpriced.

I always look for obscure Marlin calibers like 25-36 and 30 rimfire. People in H-e-double hockey sticks wish for ice water, too. SW

Here is some of the super HEI ammo you asked for

http://ammunitiontogo.com/catalog/p...d=110&osCsid=820a71258177e0e5a676d46c6e8e603c

Should do the job.

It comes in the M/N cal. as well as any of the more popular cal.

Also available in AP with starburst 4000 degree titanium sparks to ignite your favorite piss me off.



Have a good lawyer on retainer, if you plan to use any for self defense.

It is legal in most states, not all.

If you need exceptional range, the .50 cal. should be the ticket.

Military prefers .50 cal., 20mm, on up in newer models of A/C. All in HEI and AP HEI.



Big seller with the crowd from former Yugoslavia area, along with the new .50 cal. rifles.

Someone should write the clowns on mythbusters, about the segment of igniting a gas tank with one shot.

Long post on that in the old forums. All incorrect info.

They say it couldn't be done.
In a follow up segment they finally did it with tracer .223.
They have no clue about specialized ammo. Didn't even know that tracer they used needs to travel about 75 yds. or more to trace, so not to give away shooters position in combat.
They also refered to tracer and incindary as same ammo.

The have no clue about HEI, or incindiary ammo.

Its good entertainment, and thats all.

It's hard enough just to find decently priced 7.7 Jap. $49.95 for a box of 20 is just plain stupid! I don't care if it is Norma.

I look for Finnish ammo now. I've found my pack of 20 of 1917 Remington M91 ammo. I also was looking at the "rounds" in sniper69's avatar. Cartoons of course, but they get your attention.
