The Vacuum bags should under normal circumstances hold the vacuum until the bag is opened again.

The large ammo bags should be able to hold between 350 – 400 rounds of .223.
or roughly 200 7.62×51 rounds.

We found after transporting our 800 .223 rounds in a ammo case that the bag did have little dimples from where the bullet tips settled against the bag but the bag was hole free.

“The life of the bags depends on how they’re used.  If you’re in and out of them a few times each week you’ll still see at least 5yrs of protection.  The less you’re in and out of them the longer they will last.  This is because the interior material is impregnated with the VpCI molecules so when a firearm is pulled out of the bag it’s taking molecules with it.  The reason our bags last so much longer than similar ones by Zerust or Inhibitor bags is because our bags use both a VpCI material and a military grade exterior barrier layer which locks in the VpCI molecules and keeping external elements out.  Similar bags without that barrier layer allow their molecules to go both into the bag and out into the surrounding atmosphere so their material is depleted much faster.”

The Velcro Rifle/ Shotgun bag was too short to store any of the weapons we own but I have found that they will work great for storing our fully loaded magazines because it will protect the brass (and metal magazines) from corrosion.
I tested the vacuum on the “Vacuum Tactical Bag” with my
Browning Invector BPS Special Steel 20 Gauge shotgun over most of the month of December while I was away the gun was stored with the buttstock on the ground and the barrel against the wall, when we returned after 2 weeks with the shotgun in the bag the vacuum on the bag was fully gone. Under vacuum, during normal handling the bag at the muzzle developed a tear causing the bag to lose vacuum.  
The simple and effective fix for a puncture is to just use hvac foil tape from a big box hardware store.
After fully reviewing the bags overall even with the small tear, the bags are good bags for anti-corrosion.  Cost of the bags is reasonable for anyone wanting to preserve and protect their guns.

Theoretically, the corrosion protection can last in excess of 20 years.

FN FS2000 Update.

Gears of guns recently added a few new guns to our collection, one of which is the FN-H FS2000.

We have been familiarizing by  taking the weapon apart and putting it back together and add a laser and holographic scope.

We are taking the weapons out this weekend to get them sighted in.

REVIEW: 30-06 Ammo review

Gearsofguns had the opportunity to review some bulk 30-06 Springfield ammo.

BULK AMMO sent us a box of Federal 180gr 30-06 Power shok.

Power-Shok-sm

I took out my sportized US Rock island Arsenal Model 1903 . along with a friend shooting a SKS

IMG_2801(1)

(Sportized means converting it from the basic military rifle configuration to a hunting rifle configuration. The military style stock that almost fully encloses the barrel is exchanged for one that leaves the entire top of the barrel exposed, and usually only covers about half the length of the bottom of the barrel)

We had set out 2 ranges to test out this round at 50m and at 100m against a 1/4” steel plate and a paper target to test groupings. (no pictures of this grouping)

IMG_0961

At 100m we had a clean 5 round group in a half dollar on the paper and and a 3 round stack on the steel.

 

When we moved the steel plate closer to 50m we saw a unexpected result. The 30-06 rounds were making almost a millimeter smaller holes than at 100mIMG_0969
1/4” steel plate (shot both by myself with the .30-06 and by a friend with an SKS bullet size: 7.62x39mm)

 

After shooting we checked the barrel and bolt to see how clean the ammo shot and we ran a dry cloth down and came out with a fairly clean cloth and when we wiped the bolt only found oil from the last cleaning.

The recoil felt for a 30-06 from past experience was about the same.

The cost of the rounds for a 30-06 is on the low end at about a $1 per round

Specs
Caliber: .30 (7.62mm)

Overall performance from the round was excellent. Zero malfunctions or problems.

Bulk ammo shipped the ammo out to us on Monday and we had the ammo in our hands by Wednesday.

We would like to thank Bulk ammo for the chance to review this product.
