    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:

    $150 for the can? :-) Walmart will sometimes play to the mathematically challenged.

    I know right.
    And they had a BUNCH of it. Saw seven or eight cans.
    Had some in 223 also. 720rds. can't remember the price tho. They had gobs of different 223.

    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.
