Kinda bummed...
 
So, I bought the federal value pack at Wal Mart, of 100 rounds of 5.56. I get home and load up three magazines...that's 90 rounds. Have 10 rounds left, start to partially load a magazine... 1...2.....8....
8 rounds.
For those playing the home game, that's 98 rounds of ammo...NOT 100.:mad:

So, that's about 80 cents lost, which is fine, I don't mind that too much, but I think it speaks volumes to their quality control. But then I started thinking...

Magpul makes the miad grip, based on the idea that two or three rounds might save your life... so what the heck?! That's 2 rounds!!!

What if I was attacked by EXACTLY 100 zombies?!

What if I had bought a 100 pack of balloons for the range?!

What if i had brought 100 of my friends to the range with the explicit promise that each would get to fire ONE round...

What if the good lord had taken the same quality control when he made me?...
two eyes,
two kidneys
two lungs
two arms
two legs

two...:eek:

Seriously, if your quality control can't count to 100, how am I expected to trust that you know how to measure powder, seat a primer, make something that will safely explode next to my face 100-excuse me, 98 times...:rolleyes:


I am emailing this to Federal, I will keep any response updated.:cool:

You know why this old man sleeps well at night?

When I buy bulk ammo, I NEVER count it. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...ns/PDT_old.gif

Besides, I don't have 100 friends to take to the range.

Mosin, you're puttin' way too much thought into this! http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...s/images-1.jpg

Perhaps a couple of your mags took 31?

I was hoping so...but not that lucky... i checked.

Actually, I was like "Sweet!!! My mags take 31 rounds..." recounted and was like "*&%@"

Are you really going to go 100 for 100 killing zombies?;). How do you know that a machine doesn't cycle the ammo into boxes? That's why it's called bulk, you don't count it.:)

This would have been true, back when I bought ammo in 2005...at 2005 prices however, it's 2012...

Somewhere someone has a box with 102 rounds...buy enough and chances are you'll get the 2 rounds back...:p

Mosin, Have you ever counted the rounds in a bulk pack of .22LR? If not, don't.

I have. 500 round box. I can't even remember now if I was low or had a few extra. Been a lot of crap that's happened since then. I think I had like 3 extra.

Mosin 10-15-2012 03:23 AM

Never count the .22, it's cheap enough.
