Sporting Ammunition and the Firefighter
« on: December 10, 2014, 04:15:25 PM »
I found cool video on the SAAMI (Sporting Arms & Ammunition Manufacturers Institute) site.  It's titled "Sporting Ammunition and the Firefighter".  The video shows what happens to ammo when it's fired outside of a firearm, dropped from 65 feet, ran over and grinded by bulldozer, and set on fire.

It's a pretty cool video.  It's a little long (25 minutes) and a little boring at times, but still cool to watch.  It's good knowledge to have.  O0   I've often wondered what would happen to ammo during a fire.  Now I know.  :)   If you can, this info should be shared with your local fire departments, as I'm sure most firefighters (especially small town volunteer firefighters) probably don't know what happens to ammo during a fire.

Below is a link to the SAAMI site.  The video is down at the bottom of the main page.  Click on the video and then maximize it to full screen mode (lower right corner) to get the full effect.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
