    We have a lot of members who have heard of sabotage of enemy ordinance in times of war. I thought the liquid tape, in a bottle might prevent that. I made a poll. :)

    Here's what I would do..
    A completely filled box of ammo should get a load card, seal, and label.

    You get to the range or your hunting area, pop the seal, compare the load card inside to the label. If they match, use it.

    If they don't, you should have grabbed another box of ammo.

    I don't see the point??

    If I had someone in my own home tampering with or sabotaging my reloaded ammo?

    I would use some of it on them!

    You are at a state of war with someone? And you have an ordinance depot they may attack?
    Might want to set up a perimeter with a company of mechanized infantry.

    The Black Helicopters will just use their mind control rays to force you to sabotage your own ammo and re-seal it...

    There are two keys to my cave. I have one and my father has the other. Don't think he's gonna tamper with them.

    I remember once when I was younger the damage a 5/16-24 nut did to an engine when "friends" were around over 20 years ago before the blower the blower inlet screen went on an engine. Now if anything goes wrong I know it was my fault. Some things you just have to do alone.

    I say if you have to worry about that, with loaded ammo, it should be in a steel case that someone has to destroy to get into it or/and you need to weed out your "buddys".

    I'm just wondering who would break into your house to swap a sabotaged round for one of your reloads. Not to mention they would need to know what brass, bullets and OAL to use so they don't stand out? Or do you have a crazy ex wife or something?

    I keep all my ammo in cases with a combination lock, If the dial is turned to a wrong number a internal explosive charge detonates in 30 seconds, There will be no survivors.:uhoh:

    If anything happens to my reloaded or factory ammo I know who to blame.


    Even my resident ghost doesn't screw with my ammo or equipment.
    No one to blame but me.

    It may not matter soon anyway.

    If each one of us doesn't do everything possible to get like-minded conservatives out to vote, there will not be any civilian ammo.

    I would be more concerned about an enemy hitting my food or water than breaking into my ammo can and switching out rounds with sabotaged one's. That actually seems very involved and combersome.

    How do you think KB's happen???

    Incompetence? Voodoo? I don't think so. It is the enemy of the Second Amendment, a disgruntled wife perhaps, who slips in when you're not looking and doubles the powder charge. That's right.

    Seal your rounds. Install a nanny cam.

    My worry would be if they were to make a better combo than I had and I could not recreate it to my satisfaction. I would never sleep till I got it figured out.:what::banghead::D

    Aw gee, what a thing to say, he even went to the trouble to make a poll.
    That was pretty ridiculous too. :rolleyes:

    Don't forget to sign your name over the seal. :)

    I forget now do we wrap the tin foil clockwise or counterclockwise around our heads?

    I'm sure Youtube has video tutorials on how to wrap a good tinfoil hat.

    I lock up my handloaded ammo with my factory ammo. With different labels of course. Not because of "the enemy getting to them" but simply out of burglary or fire risk.

    Oh and just FYI, the enemy likes shooting at the fuel first because the ammo point is better guarded and armored. Usually.

    What if they just tamper with the seal but not the ammo? How would you know? :D

    OMG, now I have one more thing to fret about. Every time I don't shoot as well as I should I blame my poodle for screwing around with the powder measure on my Dillon. I can't prove anything, he doesn't deny it though.
