Tue Velocity, the folks that make polymer cased rifle ammo, are apparently getting close to market with their ammo. SO they had the bright idea of selling a 22 round "Collector Edition" box with a challenge coin with a 1MOA hole in the middle and a small note book.
All for the paltry sum of $159.99

Do they think their ammo is going to become collectible or something?

Thoughts???

    Stuff that goes out of production can become collectible.  OTOH, it could become like the Colt All American 2000.
    Overkill is underrated.

    I think most folks would like to try their ammo. This ain't the way to encourage it. It'll either take off, or follow the 'Tround' into history. Much like anything else.

    I think they're still in Government Contractor mode. 🤣

    So, they charge you a hundred and sixty bucks for a collector package of 22 of their trend-setting rounds, a challenge coin, and a DOPE book.  Obviously, the intent is for you to encase it in carbonite like Han Solo with the intent of it being worth something down the road.

    But your purchase also includes a recycling bag for your spent casings, so maybe they're hoping you load up on the stuff. . .  :D

    That is slightly ironic

    And wait a minute. . .isn't one of the major selling points of polymer cases is that they're supposed to be CHEAPER???

    I think they rally around Marley's anthem:

    "I smoke two joints in the morning.
    I smoke two joints at night.
    I smoke two joints in the afternoon;
    they make me feel alright.
    I smoke two joints in time of peace,
    and two in time of war.
    I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints
    and then I smoke two more."

    What I imagine a True Velocity board meeting is like after they receive your bag of spent casings.
    Not only did you throw away your investment but you've given them an opportunity to make even more money 💰
