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.
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.
6.5 arisaka, 7.7 arisaka, and 8x56 steyr can be had for 16.50 a box from www.mrnambu.com
i ordered some 8mm nambu from him recently, and he got it to me pretty quick. just a heads up, if any of y'all are looking for it.
I look for the obsolete Remington Autoloading calibers, .25 Remington, .30 Remington, .32 Remington and the obsolete Winchester Self-Loading calibers, .32 WSL, .35 WSL, .351 WSL and .401 WSL. I also look for old military calibers; 6.5 Arisaka, 7.7 Arisaka, 6.5 Dutch, 8x57 M88.
