    Black tip 30cal armour piercing projectiles or loaded .308 ammo

    Just after some to have a play with, compare on different materials with standard ammo. Maybe some tracer too.

    Are you getting set to go all one man army on us?

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Tracer bullets are about $25 / 100 on Trademe. .308 142grain.

    Never seen AP for sale apart from a few random rounds at gun shows.

    The fencing wire they're standing behind is high tensile, don't want to take any chances.

    I have a couple i.e 2 or 3 left pulled from old ammo that had corrosive primers but is all all good to reload.

    You're welcome to them PM me your address and I'll mail to you up north fella.

    Test ones in the 308 went straight through 15mm plate like butter - enjoy!!
