Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    Great work Tom. I will pass this out on the next email to my circle

    I’m not sure what the consensus was about substituting another caliber for .300blk. If you’re not looking to do that any further then please disregard. If you are still looking, you could consider .17hmr. I’ve heard plenty of people wanting to switch over to it since it can actually be found.
    I don’t have one myself, personally I’m still holding out for .22lr to “someday” normalize. However, a quick look at one of the vendors shows that while .17 can be had, it isn’t really that cheap. With the prices I was seeing, you might as well switch to 9mm, or 7.62×39. If you really need to get pesky rodents and birds taken care of with small projectiles, then I’d switch to a pellet gun before going to .17hmr. Even if .22 settled into the $40 per 500 round bricks, I’d rather stick with that.
    I know I’m not making the best argument to add another caliber to the list, but I only bring it up because I know lots of people are thinking about it. Maybe they only get as far as looking at the prices and they never mention it again.

  • Heretical Politik

    I love these posts but a couple of questions/suggestions:

    1) would it be possible to separate out steel cased vs reloadable?
    2) speaking of reloading… Projectile prices could be cool.
    3) 30-06 instead of 300blk? I feel like all of these calibers are common, Wally-world available, rounds except for the blackout.
