I put out my feelers to the Federal employees I know. Yup, they've seen these. Nope, not discounted in the company store.

If you're going to spend $4k on 7500 rounds maybe an extra barrel or two would be a good idea.

My gut says this is how the contractor ships test ammo to the main Federal proving facility. Still, too funny.
