Takin a Break

Information overload has taken its toll, so I will not be posting until after Thanksgiving.

I have been playing a free online game to de-stress from the everyday barrage of bad news. It is called World Of Tanks. Pretty fun if you can ignore the Noobs causing your team to lose. I am also playing around with some gear, some different approaches to Bushcraft, Survival and Prepping.

Some of you may have noticed the sidebar titled Featured Blog. I am trying to give exposure to what I consider worthwhile, but under exposed blogs. Please visit these, as they are certainly worth the read.

See ya on the other side!

With hunting season here, 3ohEight and I headed out to sight in our rifles. I had received a sample of some Fiocchi 30-30 150 Grain Ammo with PSP bullets from to try out and review. automatically donates a percentage of your total purchase to your chosen pro-military or pro-2nd amendment organization. They also have a broad selection of ammo, with more on the way.

The box is a little scuffed up from me opening and closing it. It was in pristine condition when it arrived. The ammo is bright and shiny brass cased, and is boxer primed so that it is reloadable.

Muzzle Vel. is 2390fps and 1582fps at 200 yards
Muzzle Energy is 1902fp and 834fp at 200 yards
Bullet Drop at 200 yards is -7.7
Ballistic Coefficient is 0.186
All specs taken from the Fiocchi online catalogue.

I used the data for 200 yards as that is about the longest shot you will ever get in Western Washington

I am sure that there are other perfomance reviews of this ammo out there so I will just review the seller and service. It was a pleasure to work with the representative who contacted me. He was curteous and helpful. I recieved the ammo in a very short time frame, better than expected with UPS ground service. I consider 5 working days to be very good service.

I received the ammo on the 3rd of November, having sent information needed for delivery on Oct 27th. The ammo was shipped from Toledo Ohio. It was packaged very well and the box showed little abuse from UPS. Even though the name sounds like it is made in Italy or some other foriegn nation, Fiocchi is made right here in the good ol' USA, in Ozark Missouri. There is more imformation about the company on their website. has a wide variety of ammo available for Centerfire Rifle, Handgun, Shotgun and Rimfire Rifle. Be sure to check out their Specials page for some great deals!

I look forward to doing business with again, and will request the money from my first purchase to go to a Pro-military organization

Got Ammo?

Just For Fun

Ok, some of it was a bit over the top but you have to admit that the scene above is a bit funny!
