Received an OOW catalog today and they are selling them for, hold on to your hats - $39.18 EACH ..... or 3 rounds for $103.09!!!!!!

C&P -
The multipurpose name is based on the projectile having an armor-piercing (tungsten or steel core), an explosive, and an incendiary component.

That's some EXPENSIVE military surplus! [;)][:D]
It's being willing. I found out early that most men, regardless of cause or need, aren't willing. They blink an eye or draw a breath before they pull the trigger. I won't. ~ J.B. Books

    Yep I was one of the suckers.
    I bought an ammo box of them.

    Here is to hoping very bad things have happened to that Okie *.

    I guess $39.18 EACH isn't such a bad price after all. [;)][:D]
