    Some very interesting ammo, and some very pricey stuff no doubt.

    Some vendor has RIP ammo at the last local gun show. It was available in most handgun calibers, but as Steve said it was awfully expensive. I think it would be cheaper just to shoot the bad guy a couple more times with standard ammo.

    I need to get into the ammo business. All you got to do is come with some novel looking slug geometry, a speculative theory the "explains" how effective it is, and people will buy it for $1 a round.

    I remember when the FMJ Truncated Cone Flat Points were "the thing". They were one of the first types used in the then new 10mm.

    When Stan Chen owned the ASYM line of ammo it was considered to be among the top of the line accuracy ammo. I don't believe that is the general consensus any more.
    WHAT: No old time Super Vel in that collection?

    Is the military still restricted to using ball rounds for pistol?

    I have no idea. My close friend gave me this tin and I had to open it! And it fires perfectly.

    I have a box or ten of 5.56; the bullets are very much like the RIP ammo.

    Mike,
    Would you sell me a box of that WW2 ammo?

    Ah you got a box of the EC ammo too! Have you read the book about that ammo? What a great fireside with a glass of scotch read it is too! I attached it for all (I posted this quite some time ago as well)

    I have a box of .45acp dummy rounds and a box of 5.56 dummy rounds. I guess they used them for some kind of training. I will dig them out and see if I can post a pic.

    I have a box of the LC Match with 200 gr SWC bullets. Also a box of 20 rds losded in 1912 with bullseye powder & Coupro Nickel bullets.
    I also have some 7.62 Nato in a brown box marked : Not for Combat use. They have a canalure rolled on the outside of the case just up from the rim. The bullet is a MK 2200 168 BTHP. These were just before the OT bullet was approved.

    Found a few more boxes in the safe. Nice price on the Uzi ammo, those were the days.

    I don't have any pics, this was before cameras....LOL!
    But I used to get surplus Czech 9x19mm armor piercing from the Jewel Box Pawn Shop in downtown PHX.
    It had a pointy mushroom shaped hard steel penetrator inside the projo.
    Never noted any enhanced penetration, but it ran well in my M59s and my M10/9mm SMG.
