Ammo Prices: 10/03/2014

    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 very, ahem, vocal following–check last week’s comments), but I will remove it from the trending and rollups–it will stay in the vendor tables. The problem with .30-06 is that it actually has fewer data points than 300BLK (and no 1000rd lots this week). Adding in .357/.38 would actually add in a bunch of work since many vendors list them separately (so they’d actually show as 2 different rounds). I will add one or the other.

    So, dear readers. This week. Please vote. .357 mag OR .38 spc

    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 teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. 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.
