    Question When Regular Ammo Isn't Good Enough Anymore?

    Anybody ever heard of this stuff, or have any experience with it??

    Ready Reserve Ammo

    Ready Reserve Ammo
    Today's modern weapons demand clean, high quality ammunition to work properly. Any dirt, dust, corrosion, rust, or defects can cause precision hand guns and rifles to misfire, jam, or can even cause damage to the weapon. Since the modern cartridge was developed, about 150 years ago, ammunition has been sold in a box, a cardboard box. The future of ammunition packaging is here, AMMO IN A CAN.

    Ammo In a Can is a patented process that removes the atmosphere from inside the can and replaces it with dry, inert nitrogen gas. Without moisture or oxygen in the can, the ammunition does not deteriorate, corrode, or rust. This gives the ammo an indefinite shelf life, regardless of the environment outside the can. The can is enameled to insulate the rounds from electrolysis. Just use the pop-top lid to open and the plastic overcap will give the remaining rounds reasonable containment and protection from the elements. No box to fall apart and spill ammunition everywhere.

    The ammunition is easily transported inside the can and fits neatly in a coat or jacket pocket, try doing that with a cardboard box. Sealed tight in the can, your ammunition will store for a lifetime or more, it can be passed down from generation to generation, easily cached if need be, and stored safely in a metal can.

    These are all NEW rounds, NOT reloads. The ammo and the can are all made in the United States of America!

    With my Food Saver I can I can accomplish basically the same thing vacuum pack and seal ammo by removing the air and moisture. Using my reloaded ammo I can even reduce the price to much less than they charge.

    Desicant (sp) packs in my ammo cans accomplish the same thing.

    Besides what's the problem with shooting a BG with a nicely patinaed bullet!

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    "Today's modern weapons demand clean, high quality ammunition to work properly."

    And yesterdays old-fashioned weapons could just get along on any old grungy ammunition?

    I store all of my ammo in 10% Humidity at a constant 62.25 degrees F in a blend that is 78.09% nitrogen by volume. Colorado's finest. Can't beat that with pure Nitrogen.

    Good grief, I just shot some 50+ year old Greek M2 in the Garand recently... my shoulder (and the targets) seemed to think it worked just fine.

    And at the cheap end of the scale, when I was around 12 I shot some 1930 vintage .22 Long ammo (I swear it must have been loaded with black powder, the muzzle flash was so intense) that had been lying around with no special storage measures. Worked just fine.

    If they'd pack some Mountain House Beef Stroganoff in the same can I may be interested.

    It ain't cheap that's for sure. $21.95 for 50 rounds of 9mm.

    "With a reloadable brass case, this ammunition is a great combination of economy and performance. Perfect for training or target practice when you don't need an expensive hollow point bullet. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases."

    Apparently their biggest selling point is that is has a re-loadable brass case, it may even be more re-loadable than other brass cases, who knows

    I once plundered a family friend's pile of junk and found about 50 rounds of .22lr in a disintegrated wood box. Half of them I dug out of the sand. I asked and he said they had to have been out there AT LEAST 25 years. We shot them and not a single missfire... IDK about like-new power, but the bullets went flying...
    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
