    $.005 per round my backend... I highly doubt it would only raise the per round cost that.

    There are so many things wrong with this act I can't even begin to type my response.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention though.

    I agree Weebs, it's hard to know even where to begin to rail on this.

    See "Microstamping". As far as I know, this died in committee in March of this year (WA).

    what happens when one of our numbers gets mixed up or recorded rong and we get blamed for shooting someone? Or stolen ammo? I could go on all night about how many problems this could cause

    I can't even imagine the logistics in maintaining a database of bullet serial numbers.

    How about trying to see that the right bullet gets into the right case? Manufacturers would have to reconfigure their entire operations to do this. It's crazy!

    How about getting some parenting to teach kids right from wrong in the first place?

    I am just thinking how much bulk .22 will be SOOO SAD!

    And then picking up ALL your brass at every range, imagine some criminal grabbing your brass and using it for evil!

    I hear that. Seems like most parents today want all the laws and rules to keep their kids from doing wrong when its much easier to just raise good kids. And the bad ones fall into that thing called natural selection:thumbup:

    It's a lot more effective, too, than to send in the CSI people to figure out the mess and engage in years of litigation...

    Actually it's NOT easier to raise good kids. Raising good kids is frustrating, difficult, time-consuming, and requires a parent to lead by example. This is why so many don't do it; they see their children as an accessory, not a responsibility.

    Have you folks noticed on their website there are no phone numbers, addresses, or basically anything to let you know who the heck these folks are or where they are from? Or who is supporting them? They mention law enforcement and a few other 'supporters'....but nothing you could prove or disprove.

    They can look at powder residue under a microscope to determine the lot it came from, thereby linking it to what you have left at home, where it was sold, etc. Also, I heard this was already in use but could be wrong, there is technology where every time you pull the trigger, the firearms serial number gets stamped into the casing. Scary stuff.

    There's no technology out there that will tell a person what lot it came from, or where it was sold.

    They can only tell the chemical make up of it, which in turn tells them what make/brand it is.

    All powder lots have samples stored and are used for comparison of future lots.
    I saw a show about this not too long ago.
    They test for deterioration and consistency from lot to lot.
    They showed Hodgon with samples from 75 yrs ago.
