Gunz are icky.
Went over to Wal-Mart earlier.
Saw a new type of ammo in the display case.
Military 50cal size ammo can with 1200rds of 9x19. Only $497.00!!!!!! End of ammo can said Made in Turkey.
Good grief. Right beside it was 100rd WWB 9x19 for $26.97. :banghead:

Spotted the same at two Wallies fifty miles apart today (SA & Sequin).

Last time I shot Turkish 5.56mm (September 2013) it patterned like a shotgun at 100 yards (3 inches). It is also loaded hot, recoil was significantly more than M885. I only shot one box (30 rounds). Glad I did not buy more than one box.

Can't find the fired cases right now, but did notice the head stamp did not have the NATO Circle Cross -- although the labeling on the box said it was manufactured to NATO M855 specification. The primer is "Staked" and sealed with a green lacquer. The projectile appears to be sealed with some kind of tar.

I guess the Turks do this, so this same ammo can be sent to Syrian rebels without implicating NATO.
