Had a guy I was talking to while enjoying my adult beverages yesterday evening assure me of the following:

He and his buddies buy "Tier 3 Tula 5.56" all the time because they can get it cheaper than "Tier 1" or "Tier 2" Tula. But the coating is corrosive, so you have to wipe down the rounds before you use them, or they'll corrode your barrel and trigger parts. However, once you wipe them down, they're fine, and well worth the hassle because it's only $0.02 a round. He said the coating was the same stuff you get old milsurp rifles coated in (aka Cosmoline).

He's also got several local stores where he gets "Tier 1" Tula for $2.50 per 20rd box...

And I missed out big when a local Bass Pro Shop opened up a few months ago. He and his buddy bought 15,000 rounds 22LR for $150, but it (the $10/1000 price) was an opening-day only special, so I missed out.

A local gunshop is cheating their customers, because they repackage "Tier 3" Tula into "Tier 1" boxes - but it's a conspiracy so that people will ruin their rifles shooting "Tier 3" without wiping it down, and have to buy new parts or new rifles from the same local gunshop.

I think that guy over-enjoyed his adult beverages.

Lol, yes, cosmoline is corrosive, that's why they smear it on their rifles for storage.

Meh sounds totally legit. Cosmo as preservative and a corrosive. Sounds so Russian to me.

If you corrode away the part, you'll preserve yourself from throwing it in the trash can later.

I had a guy in Walmart tell me after I said I'm glad I reload because there was no ammo there, that now they make powder and primers so it won't last long. So you can load all you want but after like a year that stuff you loaded is no good anymore. I laughed out loud and walked away. You can't make this shit up.

I am FAR from a weapons expert but damn, I feel smart when some people talk guns!

OP, you should stop hanging out with deranged drug addicts.

This is why I don't get into conversations with stranger level gun folks.

I think that guy was birthed out of his mother's asshole because her vagina was too busy.

It's legit, you actually have to match the tier of the ammo with the tier of the rifle for it to work properly

WTF is Aimless doing at a bar in Colorado?
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 1:17:17 PM EDT
I bet he has a FFL and runs a small gun shop.

Wait - cosmoline, a corrosion inhibitor, causes corrosion? O_0

What walmart ammo counter does he work at?

Damn, I'm cheap but even I won't shoot Tier 3 Tula.

Strictly Tier 2.

Fuck. I'd wipe my ammo for that price.
