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.

Its been about 12 hours and the Wolfe Polymer Coated 5.56mm has already rusted tgether.

It's pretty nasty looking. Lotsa rust floating around.

BTW, you do know this was done in the Ammo FAQ, right?




DAMN smartass. Yes, I fixed that and noted it on the thread in the ammo section!

I'll correct the spelling of Wolf and the Q3131A card. I was in a hurry last night!
