ammunition

Vigilant Spectre talked to them at SHOT.  Kind of hard to hear yea… Spectre needs to get an external puffy mic next year:

Summary: The ammo everyone complains about for stupid reasons but uses anyway because it’s cheap and awesome, now has various optics. It’s obvious WOLF knows their position in the market and are pretty comfortable there.  They aren’t out trying to beat Hornady, and that’s ok.

Wolf-Ammo-LogoI’d like to say check out the WOLF website, and read all the awesome info and see the prices on the optics… but there isn’t any mention of them yet up there. :/  Hopefully soon now that shot is over.

Thoughts?  Would potentially operate with considering the price point is likely agreeable?

Yea… this is cool:

The objective of the EXACTO program is to revolutionize rifle accuracy and range by developing the first ever guided small-caliber bullet.  The specially designed ammunition can change direction in midair.

Full article over at Stripes.

DARPA is so epic, I CAN’T EVEN.  Like it mentioned in the article, you definitely don’t want to have snipers total rely on technology like this.

Bullet-Slicing-Water-Drop-2I wonder if X-ACTO brand knives will get all up in DOD’s face for trademark infringement?

FPS Russia wearing ear and eye protection and shooting incendiary:

FPS-RussiaOmg proper safety… it’s a miracle.  Mattv2099 prophesied on the last Royal Nonesuch video I posted, that Royal is going to be the next big thing because of his disregard for safety.  FPS started out disregarding safety too.  Actually I think he has been wearing custom ear plugs for a while though, but they were flesh colored so they didn’t really stand out.

4:25 – LOL that paint can was coming for him!

Gotta be careful with incendiary that you don’t mess around and start a forest fire.

Royal Nonesuch, the homebrew gun prince:

Royal-Nonesuch-BowmagDamn those things detonate fairly reliably, that’s crazy! The .308 are obviously the best… too bad it ends up being just an expensive novelty.

Eye pro for WHAT?! *smh* Boys will be boys *in best grandma voice*

Anyone do any of this crazy stuff Royal Nonesuch does? Or do you just like to watch from the sidelines like me?

Hell yea!

Full story – WLWT Cincinnati 

school-girls-gunsOh wait… we’re not excited about this?  It was .22 LR even!  Bah… whatever.  4 year old Landon is doing to shake his head someday at this.

This story probably isn’t as getting much press as it would have if it would have been some cop killer bullets, RIP ammo, or .50 BMG which can take down airplanes.

A lot of people saying this this is probably a setup / hoax.  It really wouldn’t surprise me.  If there’s no scary gun story of the day / holiday, what better fix than to create one?

NRAwomen Love At First Shot goes to Hornady:

Ohhhhhh Lawwwwd ammo production line footage… me = dead.  I love that kind of stuff!

NRA-Women-Love-At-First-Shot-LogoHornady ammo is so top notch looking always.  Even the boxes Hornady ammo comes in is Boutique store caliber.  I have a box of Critical Defense from the early aughts (That’s the way coolguys say early 2000’s I found out recently) I refuse to shoot because it’s so nice looking… All my glocks have eaten are Wolf, Winchester white box, and American Eagle.  Hell I’d shoot Value Village ammo if it was made available for cheap.

Looks like the next episode will be all production line footage!

Thoughts?
