How to Recharge Ammo Can Desiccant Without Burning It

How to Recharge Ammo Can Desiccant Without Burning It
The desiccant sold by CleanAmmoCans.com is a premium moisture absorption solution that is specially sized for the volume of small arms ammo cans to ensure your expensive ammo stays protected from moisture during long-term ammo storage. But what do you do if you need to open the ammo can at some point to put additional ammo inside or pull some ammo out, introducing new moisture into the can? In contrast to cheaper desiccant products or silica-based moisture absorbers, our clay-based desiccant is reusable after a simple “reactivation” process. However, the instructions printed on the packets are specifically written for military applications and may not provide good results for home use with a consumer grade oven. Read on to learn how to reliably reactivate your desiccant at home!

M855A1 Enhanced Performance Round vs AR500 Targets

We weren't looking for a way to destroy our AR500 steel targets, but we found out the M855A1 Enhanced Performance Round (EPR) is one way to do it!  M855A1 spec ammunition is the US Army’s “environmentally friendly” replacement for the M855 “Green Tip” 5.56x45mm 62gr NATO round.  While not very well known outside of military channels, the M855A1 has already been introduced in the field by the US Army as their standard battlefield cartridge for the M16/M4 family of rifles.  The M855A1’s turbulent, lawsuit rich development is well documented and makes for interesting reading, but the round’s improved performance against hardened surfaces is unquestionable.  Read on to learn more about the M855A1 and view the demise of our expensive AR500 steel targets as we find out the hard way.
