.22Plinkster talks about the 4 scenarios that could cause a misfire in a rimfire gun. This first three reasons are pretty straightforward. A bad firing pin due to dry firing, Ammunition quality, and ammo longevity. The fourth reason is rather interesting and may be [Read More…]

Week 31. Again .22LR is coming in around $0.10/rd. And I agree with a number of the comments from last week. You can find bricks cheap locally in a lot of places. Which is going to be really important for a review I have coming out in a couple of weeks… It looks [Read More…]

Week 30. Run for it. Munire has .22lr for $0.10/rd. But only 202 500rd bricks in stock (at the time of compilation of this data). Otherwise, ammo prices seem to be holding pretty constant. We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this [Read More…]

Week 29. I hope you didn’t miss the break last week too much. I was out of pocket, enjoying Lake Bridgeport in Texas, without internet. It doesn’t look like the prices of ammo collapsed or skyrocketed in my absence. I did find some .22LR for $0.07/rd, but [Read More…]

Week 27. Okay. So based on an equal number of votes for each (that would be 2 votes) between .357 mag/.38spc, .30-06, and keeping 300BLK, what I am going to do is this. I’ll keep 300BLK as it takes really no work (it’s not very useful for trending but has a [Read More…]

Week 24. Overall it looks like more vendors have slight reductions in PPR than have increased. There is some 22LR for $0.10 (but only 3 boxes when I compiled this); otherwise it is still silly expensive. Or maybe we just need to move on and accept that these are the new [Read More…]

backwards bullets

Bullets Loaded Backwards

Saw this on Every Day No Days Off. Mike, of ENDO, posted a video by The Ammo Channel. The Ammo Channel looks at an internet myth of loading bullets backwards to increase damage. The results are interesting but it doesn’t seem like a good idea.
