308Wood and I have completed the experiment on some ammo that ws recently purchased.

I pulled the pictures from the prior days to save bandwidth on my website and to increase the load speed for those ARFCOMERs with slow connections.

The complete test is at: The whole shootin' match!

DAY 5- Friday: 8-27-2004 120 Hours


THE USUAL SUSPECTS!


The PMC is dry after five days! Is this s surprise? I think it is. I really had no more expectations of this PMC ammo than I did for the S&B. The durprise is that it performed as it was supposed to.

The Federal XM-193 is Dry. This should not be a surprise as this ammunition is second only to the Q3131A.


The second biggest surprise! The demilled is dry! I am amazed thst the manufacturer could take this stuff apart and then put it back together and get a batch this right!


For the price, this stuff should be DRY! It is! No surprises here.


Above & Below: No surprise here. Wet, Wetter & Wettest!





The WOLF 5.56mm! The Wolf is the big surprise for its waterproofness. The problem: after five days under water, I doubt that the rusty cases would feed reliably.

AND YES! I know its XM193 NOT XM198! The new card will be displayed tomorrow!

The card incorrect says Q313a, shouldn't that be Q3131a? That's hilarious!

I'll correct the written typos! I should blame this on my secretary, but my wife would kick my ass because she didn't create the cards!

I posted last night's pictures.

THE WOLF IS STILL DRY! Rusty but dry!

The cards should be spelled correctly this time also!

Thanks for doing the test. You have proven me right for choosing Q3131A for my main round, over the sometimes leaky XM193. Well, I didn't like the dented cases either.

Thanks for taking the time to perform this test and post the results!

Ya'll are welcome.

I thinkthe wolf ws the most encouraging and disapointing all in one. Well sealed, but rusting away to the point of un-usefulness!

Did you try and feed a few rusted cases in a rifle?

I did not try to chamber a round.
