    Default Ammo Additive?

    At the local gun shop here I heard people talking about some new additive they will be adding to all new ammo that makes it obsolete after 6 months or some amount of time. Is that true?

    Whoa! Reloading here I come if that's true. Please post any additional info if you find it.

    I know I'm dealing with an idiot when someone tells me "nothing rhymes with orange", because nothing and orange don't sound anything alike.

    I wonder if that is tied to the discussion of tagamets added to gun powder to enable the feds to trace the source of explosive devices.

    Of course it's true. Now go out to the range tomorrow and shoot all the ammo you have before it expires!!!!!!! Another myth - on the same plane as "Obama will cure all of America's Problems" - bull crap.

    I think you put the "bull crap" in the wrong place.

    Wouldn't viagra counteract anything the gov. could put in gun powder?

    I won't go any further with that, you all can take it where ever you want...

    This rumor has been around for ten years that I remember. It rates up with the 'expiring primer compound' rumor.

    No verifiable information to show powder or primers can be intentionally altered to 'go flat' in a specific time frame. Legislation to print little bitty serial numbers is far more likely and even stupider.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is not the time to quit writing congress.
    I'm not really a professional gunfighter, but I used to play one in reality.
