Found canned corn and peas on sale at the local grocery @ 0.50/can, picked up four more cases.

Picked up more dry milk to pack away.

Was it the "store" brand?,if so,rinse them then freeze them.When you go ta use them the taste should be improved.I use store "brands" for dtd,I use the national brands for longer term storage.'08.

As for my week...

Ordered 2 cases (1,120 rds per case) of Yugo 7.62x39mm FMJ ammo packed on strippers....$182 each + shipping

http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.as...box&groupid=39

Survival/Preparedness Forum


Really have a "soft spot" for ammo that is prepackaged on strippers..

..sealed for long term storage..

..& cases that have handles for portability!

All of the above goes well with my 'ammo philosophy'.....as articulated on this thread.

http://98.196.65.94/practicalpreps/f...hp?f=32&t=2153



Also ordered 120 rds of the above 7.62x39mm (for T&E....so I can leave the cases sealed)..

..100 rds of 9x18mm JHP (T&E)

..and 100 rds of Dynamit Nobel (GECO) 9x19mm FMJ (T&E).

I got that email from AIMS too. Have you shot brass cased rounds out an AK? Any issues?

I have.
This is not commercial ammo. It is designed to run in AKs and SKSs. The Brass is not an issue because it is used once. The STRIPPERS are GREAT!!.

The issue, it is corrosive. It is just not worth the extra time for me to clean my rifle every time I shoot. I don't shoot that often. I shoot multiple rifles when I go. I may only shoot 10-50 rounds per gun....

Thanks! For me, I tend to shoot only a couple of guns per visit. So the corrosive ammo is not an issue for me.

Found Campbells Chunky Soup at Hyvee for .99 a can bought some of those, plus other canned goods. Also did a full inventory of food and ammo. Helps to know what you have too much of and not enough of!

Yep, I ran thousands of mil-surp brass-cased 7.62x39mm with no problems..

..expecting the same results here as well.

And love the fact it is prepacked on strippers!

Yes, the ammo does have corrosive primers & is Berdan-primed..

..as was most of the 7.62x25mm. 7.62x39mm, 7.62x54R ammo I have shot over the decades..

..& also most of the 7.62x25mm. 7.62x39mm, 7.62x54R, etc ammo I currently stock .


Even some of the Eastern Bloc ammo labled "non-corrosive" was found to have corrosive primers...IIRC


The AKM I practice with most are from either Norinco or Poly Technologies..

..both having corrosion resistant bolts, bolt carriers, firing pins, extractors, springs, etc..

..as well as chrome-plated gas pistons, bores & chambers.


My practice is done differently..

..normally lots of rounds thru a single gun or a few guns..

..many of my guns do not see much daylight after they are sighted in & function tested for issues..

..so a little extra attention when cleaning is not a problem.


That being said...I have found no real issues even if the Norincos or Poly Technologies AKM are not cleaned properly..

..and have done much worse..

(outside in the dirt for several weeks in the weather for T&E)

..with no functional effects to the test guns.




On the flipside..

With guns that do not have "corrosion resistant" this & "chrome-plated" that..

(like my .50 BMG when shooting corrosive ammo)

..they get the boiling hot water treatment...or similar..

..followed up with a coating of oil soon after firing.

Lacking 'due dilligence' when using corrosive ammo with these guns is not a good practice to follow!



YMMV

picked up 50lbs of Organic rolled oats at .79 a lb for the long term buckets... It's great to see those things fill up.

Been a while since I updated.

Started socking away money again. Maintained our debt-free status, but hadn't been saving alot since the baby.

Stashed several hundred dollars in cash around the house.

Took a tactical handgun glass.

Been working out 3-4 days a week for a little over 3 weeks now.

Purchased a few boxes of .45 HP.

Made 13 waterproof firestarters out of matches, cardboard and gulf wax. Tested 1. Burned for about 3 minutes with a lot of heat.

Picked up my small generator from my buddy that was getting it up and running again.

Acquired a Mr Heater Big Buddy heater.

IT uses either one or two 1lb throwaways, or if you can find one,
a hose with adapter to a 20lb BBQ bottle cylinder.

I only managed to wipe out WalMart of their last dozen or so double-packed Coleman (Worthington) cylinder pairs.

Inefficient, I know. I will eventually find a BBQ bottle hose and a way to route it outdoors.

Meantime, I can heat the house in an emergency. Each pair of
1 lb'ers can go 12 hours on the low setting (4000 btu)

With that kind of endurance, I can set it in the basement in the large utility room and keep the pipes from freezing over.

For a short duration, 3 hours max, I can crank it up to 18000 btu. Pretty expensive though. They cylinder pairs at WM
were $5.12. About double the price of propane in BBQ bottles and that's twice the price of bulk propane delivered.

Now I have more than just electric and a low efficiency fireplace.

Look into getting an adapter to fill those canisters from a larger tank.

I held one in my hands last night at Tractor Supply.

I passed on it. Most 1 lbers' have a warning against doing this.

It may just be boilerplate, but gas is something I won't tinker with.

I do not trust the process, or me handling it, anyway. Any kaBOOM would take all the savings out of the routine.

I am considering drilling a hole to outside to pass the line thru so the
cylinder could sit outside and the hose could be used to feed the
heater.
