    Ok well I got told about this over a week ago and held off on saying anything because I couldn't verify it. Today I got a PDF file that was written in April of 07. It says that as of current date over 12 million rounds have been destroyed.

    This is all part of the Partnership for Peace trust fund. and a sub part of the anti personal mine destruction. These funds went from destroying mines to rockets and then light arms and ammo.

    If I can figure out a way to post the whole damn article I will but it's seven pages and about six of that are dry enough to make you cry.

    So in short it would seem that part of our ammo shortage is from whats being sent to the troops and a part of it is from this crap. Just glad I reload.

    Take care Be safe Poacher.

    What a seriously depressing waste of money.

    I'll volunteer to help them de-mill a few hundred thousand rounds, especially 5.56, .45 acp, .50 BMG, and 7.62.

    If it is a pdf just attach it to a post using the little paperclip as they do allow pdfs here up to ~9MB. If you're on dialup PM me the pdf name and I'll track it down and post it.
