    Pasted from a local classified website:

    .223 Rem. (5.56 mm.) Bullet for Sale
    "This is a single 55 grain bullet from Wolf Performance Ammunition. It's in NIB condition, box included. I'm asking about $0.17 for it, obo. E-mail for details."

    The guy includes a picture for reference. I am tempted to offer ten cents, if he will pay for shipping.:D

    Its a free classifieds site. I've bought and sold several guns on this site.

    Is it a bullet, or a whole cartridge? If it's just the bullet, you're getting taken for a ride. :p

    If you pay more than 4 cent for it you are getting burned. The entire round only cost 10 or 11 cents.

    Back to the funny ads. That one can’t hold a candle to this site. It simply amazes me with its glowing self praise and psuedo-science language:
    http://www.extremeshockusa.com/pages/welcome.html

    They claim to have rounds that will not penetrate sheetrock, are safer to EMS workers, and that "in the magazine of a capable operator are the difference between victory and defeat". Here is a another quote:

    "ExtremeShock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational core of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system."

    I do have to agree with one of their lines, there ad is "beyond description". I suppose I’m not part of their target market. The pictures of the high speed low drag models crashing through windows should have tipped me off.

    :rolleyes:

    I think the guy selling the bullet is a geneis. He can make $170.00 if he can sell 1000 of them and almost double his investment. A case goes for about $90-100 so he is really thinking!:D

    We have a free ad paper in my area where people can list any they want to sell for free (the paper costs money) and I see ads like this all the time. People will sell an old shoe with no laces for a dime. I think it is mostly retired people or mildly retarded people who have nothing else to do.

    Griz,

    You shouldn't laugh at the ExtremeShock advertisement. That round offers "railgun accuracy" :eek:

    Do not mock ExtremeShock!
