Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

If you shoot military surplus .308 (7.62NATO) ammo, STAY AWAY FROM INDIAN SURPLUS. Excerpt:
Currently there is .308 surplus ammunition on the market made in INDIA with the headstamp OFV M80 and then a date code (usually 97), and a headstamp of KF 762b and then a date code (usually 91). From my understanding this ammunition came from the factory installed in machine gun belts. The ammunition was designed to be shot in a belt fed machine gun. A rumor is that they removed the belts/links from the ammuntion, and during the process, many of the necks got crushed, tweaked, the bullets loosened, and the bullets pressed further into the case.

Having an inquisitive nature, i figured, i would try this stuff out to see if it was as bad as everyone on the internet was saying.


Now, my initial test lot was 100 random rounds obtained by grabbing through the can after the obviously bad rounds were removed, and thrown away. I came up with 100 rounds that after a second look, showed zero signs of bad cases, crooked bullets, or anything


(O)ut of the 100 test sample rounds, i found a mixture of ball and stick powder (ball is round balls of powder, and stick looks like little sticks - two different things all together). out of 100 of the test samples, 93 had disk or ball type powder and 7 of them had stick type powder. for those not into reloading, that means they dumped whatever they had available into the cases to get them done. usually a lot of ammo is consistent in powder type. not so with the indian i had.

(A)fter weighing each powder charge inside each individual case, and charting it on paper, there was a powder variance of 6 grains between the lowest charge, and the highest charge. 6 grains of powder is an unsafe variance.
I'd say so.

The post has pictures of a blown-up CETME, a blown-up MG42 (!), and a blown-up 1919(!!).

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls; CHEAPER AIN'T ALWAYS BETTER.

Apparently this is common knowledge around the "black rifle" crowd, but it's the first I've heard about it, and I thought it important enough to pass along.
