Language.

It is not appropriate for open forums.

I probably should order a couple of more boxes while I still can (presuming I still can).

You can, we have a machine running 24/7. The only time it stops is when it's out of materiel.

Any chance of 223 or 556?
Better to have a tank when you don't need it then to need a tank when you don't have it.

Sweet picture!

Looks like the colour changed to a more bronze. :( I MISS the solid gold colour of the round and brass together.

It looked scary as heck.

I would often find myself carrying around rounds with no gun for CCW, and just pulling the rounds out and threatening bad guys with it... :(

But NOTHING CAN KEEP YOU DOWN. Glad EA got right back up and started making snit that we can load and protect ourselves, with. :thumb:

I'd like to see these loaded in a 5.56 :) How fast can a 28gr bullet go in 5.56? Damn it I need some now.

Grazie for the snap prop. We buy to shoot - so more than a hundred of those T-6s will be pushing their way through barrels soon.

Colours are close ... some subtle differences. Maybe we can line up the line and post a snap. Old and new.

FD57,

I know for a fact that many will want to see testing that was done to the original, done to the latter. I'll use it either way, but for the OCD types, no matter what you say, it will have to be reproofed.

I'm still waiting on 3 different lines to go boar hunting. Last time I went in November with another forum member, we didn't see any. I brought EA along to shoot, of course. I did hit a few things with ss197 and .357SIG. The EA would have been much too overkill for them.

Ordered my new t6 yesterday, will the older brass ones become collectable?

Current ammunition like S4, that EA still was producing, sold on Gunbroker for almost double the price. Current S4M still sells for more than EA retails.

T6 was something brand new that offered powerful penetrating abilities while fragmenting into several wound channels. It was only offered for a short time before EA the BS of the ATF happened. And, as many pointed out, it looked terrifyingly beautiful and deadly, by itself.

Myself-and undoubtedly-others, are encouraged by the fact that EA did not settle and chose to constantly come back with innovative and functional products. In this case... twice. :cya:
