FREE to Good Home..... YOU pay shipping!
Unless you can get Pram to pay shipping

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

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

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"

I'm going to give it a twist

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)

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:

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 cigarettes
So, it might take me a couple days to get the package shipped.


I will PM the winner my info for PayPal

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

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.....

oh yeah, I forgot to add...... only one entry per member :)

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.

Great response guys!!!
I've already got 11 private messages with guesses.... I'm saving the PMs and documenting names, times, and guesses in an excel document.

milkmania 03-26-2013 02:40 PM

bobx1, I've added your time and guess to my document:)'t make your guesses in this thread..... it shows everyone else what not to guess
