    A marine friend of mine told me that Special Forces ALWAYS built their own ammo.

    Now I dunno if this is true, or how specific the info is, but is there anyone out there that has heard this, and or do you know of any special recipes for loading say, 9mm, .223. 5.56, .45acp.

    Bullet weight, design, powder, primers, etc.

    thanks
    CHuck

    If you are talking "Snipers" -sort of, they are "issued" specially developed "match grade ammo" -they use a single batch of ammo and they "zero" thier rifle to that lot, so every shot should be consistant as the last, until they use that particular lot up. They dont actually build thier own ammo- at least I never saw it or heard of it. All special forces "Doorkickers" use regular issued ammo- maybe "tracer" ammo at night-nothing special needed for close quarters combat.

    I know a bunch of 10th group SF guys here at Ft. Carson. They shoot issued ammo.

    No. Combat soldiers, including the special ops community, are issued their ammunition. They don't roll their own.

    Completely false. At least on the operational side of the house.

    What they use on their off time in personally owned weapons is something completely different.

    He's FOS. Even sniper's don't roll their own. Only AMU does for competitions and ammunition development.

    To me, what's funnier than the "friend" claiming that fact, is the OP wanting those recipes. Like it will make him more tactical or something?

    "I wanna shoot me some of that Spec Ops stuff!!! "

    Its amazing what keyboard commandos will glean from a post. i put it out there to see if there was any truth or reality to his statement.

    What we find wrong or peculiar with others, is usually what is deficient within ourselves.

    I was looking for reasons for loading possibly minimal powder rounds for a certain reason, or max combos for the same.

    Knowledge is good, but posting, "I wanna shoot me some of that Spec Ops stuff!!!" That shows me you wear your hat on your ***.

    OH AND FOR THOSE WHO GAVE ME GOOD INFO, I THANK YOU, NOW I KNOW MY FRIEND IS F.O.S. I still consider him a friend, although now a bit stinkier. kinda like some others, , ,

    Had you asked, "my friend said this, true or false?", then the statement of yours I bolded I would agree to be true.

    But then going on to add, "if someone has recipes" (for mimicing these Spec Ops loads) "then pass them along". Dude, that's exactly what you were saying: You wanted to load/shoot you "some of them Spec Ops loads". Get out of here with your being offended, I called it like it was.

    Wow how this has gotten blown out. You are adding things I never said. Your trying to make me out to be some yokel who is sitting behind a keyboard trying to be some crazy rube from the South.

    You are so far out of line, I think you owe everybody on this forum and probably just about everyone you meet, in the future, an apology.

    If there was an Ignore button on this forum, I would have hit it along time ago where your input is concerned.

    Again to everyone else I thank for the input and info, Rube59 bites.

    I don't have a dog in this fight, but FYI, there is an ignore function. Click on the profile of the person. Click on user lists. Add the person to the ignore list. You won't be able to see any of their posts without an extra step.

    It's easy to see the sources for this type of misinformation.
    I've seen videos of military personnel hand loading 7.62X51 ammunition for shooting competitions.
    Also, I read an article on the development of 147 grain 9mm ammunition and a lot of the bullet designs leading up to today' rounds were developed at the request of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group. I believe they wanted more effective subsonic rounds.
    There's just enough information available regarding this kind of ammunition development to give the wrong impression.

    3. Copy and paste (or type) the user name into the "add a member to your list" field & click on okay
