[quote:Anonymous Coward 893880:MV8yMDQ0MTAxXzM0MzUwMzE0X0I4MEU0RTBD] [quote:Anonymous Coward 27309840:MV8yMDQ0MTAxXzM0MzQ4Mzk0Xzg4MDNDNTVC] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1028551:MV8yMDQ0MTAxXzM0MzQ4MzA3X0MwQzgyRkE4] 30mm rounds are used specifically in the GAU avenger cannon, mounted in the A10-C Warthog 'tank-buster'. It is designed for anti-armor, and can be fired effectively from about 2 miles away at a given target. The GAU avenger has an auto-correction mechanism which compensates for bullet drop over long distances making them a deadly and accurate ballistic weapon. While they can be used on infantry, they are not designed with this purpose in mind. [/quote] Very effective against National Guard units in Red states. [/quote] This is not, repeat, is not, a 30mm X 173 that is shot out of the GAU-8 on the A-10. Get it? The cartridge cases that the OP is manufacturing at Amtec (Amron) in Wisconsin are the 30mm x 113. This is a much smaller round used on the Apache helicopter chain gun. The A10 is an armor killer, amongst other things. The Apache is a not. Now, the reality of this is that there is most likely a current contract in place with options, and for whatever reason, they waited until after the election to exercise that option. That is all.

I live in north central Wisconsin. Located not too far away from my area is an ammunition factory. The factory makes the 30mm shell casings for the Apache gunships. The company had a huge order pending the elections. If Romney did win the elections the order was going to be cancelled. If Obama won the order would go through. I heard this info around town and last night, heard the grumblings of overtime through out the Thanksgiving season. I believe that the move to do something in Syria is right around the corner. The reason I think that it is Syria is because Romney would have helped Israel with Iran. It sure as hell cant be Afghanistan, cause no matter who won the election those rounds would still go to Afghanistan.
I am just passing this along, Obama is up to something and this has me concerned.
