    Holiday Colored Bullets

    Sometime around the Christmas holiday I found a box of CCI 22lr ammo with the bullets poly coated in red and green.
    I bought a box for a keepsake.
    I was in Sportsman Warehouse yesterday and found a 4th of July box with the bullets colored red, white and blue.
    You gotta love CCI....dale

    Maybe there should be a color experiment for POI. Let us know you're results.

    Seriously...that is pretty cool. Novelty? yes...collector value? maybe....in 2068 haha

    The only stupid question...is the unasked one.

    never got into any of the zombie stupidity, but i have purchased many of the 500count boxes of 50gr 223 zmax bullets, because its actually cheaper than buying the vmax. same bullet other than the tip color.

    I do reload some of my once fired 22 casings, and the slugs that I cast, I powder coat so I don't have to lube them.

    Are talking about me? I do have a couple boxes, one of .45acp and one .223. Some day they'll be worth millions!

    I still have some in an ammo can. Not like I'm saving it as a collectible though.
