Things you didn't know about Ammo

You can’t have weapons without ammo. What really is killing people is actually ammunition. Weapons and ammo go well, like guns and ammo. Time to lock and load and learn some things about the thing that is killing us all.

If you thought you know everything about bullets, stop right there. You probably don’t. For starters, the thing you think is a bullet, is actually a round of ammunition.

The history of ammo spans hundreds of years ago. But it was lately that we replaced chalks of stones with little more purpose. In the 14th century, the trace of modern ammunition starts.

The story about the history of ammunition is narrated by no else than Ronald Lee Ermey, known as R. Lee Ermey, the American actor that was nominated for Golden Globe for his role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket.

Ronald might have been just an actor that seemed to know a lot about ammunition, but the role sure suits him well as he narrates the history of ammunition to perfection.
