Fiocchi Canned Heat ammunition.
« on: March 23, 2011, 04:01:28 PM »
I saw this on DownrangeTV and it's all over the blogs.  Fiocchi in now making ammo packaged for preppers and survivalists in mind.  IT's canned ammunition for long term storage.

IT comes in .22 lr, 9mm, 40 S&W, 45 ACP, .223, and 308.

They also have a glowlight "tracer" round for shoutguns. (Would you call it a light slug?)  While I can't see any hunting or defensive use for it, it would make for a dandy night time flare that wouldn't risk ignighting a forrest fire during the try season.

Here's the links to the blogs so you can see the pics.

Hilarious...a glow stick shotgun wad!  What a cool idea!

I think it would be great for deer hunting if they make it with buckshot or slugs.  If you don't get a perfect heart/lung shot it could help you find the start of a blood trail.
