FREE to Good Home..... YOU pay shipping!
Unless you can get Pram to pay shippinghttp://deephousepage.com/smilies/rofl5.gif

OK guys, here's the deal....
Was cleaning out garage, and came across a box of 50 FEDERAL Gold Metal Match .45 cartridges @ 185 grain.... LINK->Federal Cartridge 45 Automatic 185gr FMJ-SWC Match/50 GM45B (http://www.wholesalehunter.com/product.asp?productid=6825)

To the best of my knowledge...
1) This box has been stored in a cool dry location,
2) I do not own a .45 and have no need for this ammo.
3) I do not know the manufactured date.
4)The LOT# stamped on ammo box is FC-00J020-001 (this doesn't mean squat to me!)


I DO NOT know the rules for shipping ammo..... During a quick search, I found these links http://www.adazonusa.com/howtoshipammunitionorammo-a-45.html
http://www.ar15.com/mobile/topic.html?b=7&f=133&t=372846



Now, the fun part.....
this is kind of a "pay it forward" type deal... no profit for me!
and I see a lot of "pay it forward" threads in here and I really love to see everyone helping each other out.... BUT.... what I see is "first come, first serve", "early bird gets the worm"

SO,
I'm going to give it a twisthttp://deephousepage.com/smilies/devil10.gif

RULES
I wrote a number on the back of the ammo box, and popped up the time/calendar thingy on my laptop.... then took a picture of the box, the number and the time/calendar displayed in one picture (I don't want to show favoritism)

The interested member PRIVATE MESSAGES me with their guess..... The guess that is closest to the number, gets the box of AMMO. (again....I AIN'T PAYIN' SHIPPING!)
The number I wrote on ammo box is between 1 & 100 (and I took the picture at 12:14AM Central Time and uploaded to my Dropbox)

THE NOT SO FUN PART:
*SEE TIE BREAKER BELOW*
In the event of a TIE, my time/calendar displayed 12:14 and so many seconds.... the winner will be the member that guesses the seconds, of course that number will be between 00 and 60:rolleyes:

DELIVERY
I will jump through the hoops to get the ammo to you.... I just don't want to be out any money....
I will add the trip to UPS or FEDEX to my regular errands when I have them, I think I'm doing you a favor by passing these along to you... I could just find a bum on the streets to give them to.... either the bum or I could probably trade the ammo for a pack of cigaretteshttp://deephousepage.com/smilies/kos.gif
So, it might take me a couple days to get the package shipped.

PAYMENT FOR SHIPPING
I will PM the winner my info for PayPal

ACTIVE DATES
March 26th. 2013 to April 8th. 2013 (unless there is a winner before April 8th. 2013)

MODS,
this is simply a fun way to try help someone out..... nothing more, nothing less!
If you feel the need to delete the thread.... SO BE IT!

If you don't like this game..... DON'T PLAY!

and I already cleared my PM BOX:cool:

to remain fair, I will not EDIT this message again.....

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!

I dont need the ammo but would like to guess the number anyway.

My guess is 69.

In case of a tie, the seconds is 13.

If I win, I would like to send the ammo to Joe Biden.

Please advise as to the results.

Woo hoo! :banana::banana::banana: So now what? Figure out how to ship? I looked around online after you posted the 37 (I was hopeful) and UPS looks to be the best way to go about it.

I have 2 1911 .45's, thank you! The new Cabela's opened here yesterday. ALL of their .22 was gone in 10 minutes - except .22 buckshot loads. The parking lot was packed, the large field across the street was also packed too. Cool store, but I'll spend more time there when there aren't 2500 people in it. The line to get to the gun counter was 100 deep. They had a lot of ammo - small quantities only - but still couldn't get my hands on any .22 or 9mm rounds.

I was shooting down there a while back - good location for some plinking. That's what happened to the rest of my 9 mm.

we went plinking with Steve last week ... Bruce found some .22 boxes that must be close to 15 years old ... they were not feeding very well at all. You'll have to try out my new Kimber Custom ... awesome

we will have to have a little competition shoot some time ... hope to see you guys down there soon
