Plastic Cases
« on: May 27, 2018, 12:28:23 PM »
A few years ago, read an article about some plastic cases taking the place of brass....after reading it did not give it much thought, just shrugged my shoulders....but with all the technology of late even with plastics, actually polymers, this latest article in the June issue of Guns & Ammo Magazine about the new polymer cases from True Technology located near or close to Dallas, TX., makes you stop and think....

Our Military will be the first to get it hands on production ammo, and I'm sure they probably have been testing it for some time now. but after reading the article over again and now picking up on the details of it. Wonder when it become available for the consumer (like us chickens) to check out and to hunt with. I know they are making the 308 Winchester and I just happen to know a guy who owns a bunch of them, would like to get his hands on this ammo just for text purposes....Would love to get my hands on their test rifle too! They don't test this ammo with any cheap equipment, they used an Accuracy International AXMC rifle, on Gunbroker it runs around $8500...ouch...and the groups were very small like 0.33 inches groups....and the average was 0.48 inch!! OMG....

The pros would be our troops could carry more rounds of ammo, it doesn't expended "shells" if you can call them that, don't heat up!! all the heat goes into and down the barrel....humm....and you cannot reload the ammo can you?? I did not read it anywhere in to article, it did not address it? If so, I missed it....I cannot see any cons at this time but I'm sure there are folks on here like Dutch, Yari, PJ, Gutshot, Madgomer and others who would find some sort of problem with this ammo....Let the troops use the ammo in the M15 and the M4 rifles and see how it does. A million or so rounds should give you a good in-site on how it will perform on the battle field.....

So would be interested in hearing your thoughts on this ammo....I for one am interested in 308 and the 223 ammo and cannot wait to get my hands on some of it.......
