I wonder what Hornady means by "Military Grade"...?
EDIT: I guess this...
It very well may be, if the military specification/requirements states lasts longer than two years in service. Contractors are not fond of building parts better than they are being paid for. When a product's ad copy says it's military grade or mil-spec, the first question to think about is which military specification does it meet?It may be an improvement over commercial part manufactured in the anticipation to brake apart an year or 2 past warranty period.
Agreed. Mil-Spec just means it meets the requirements of the contract. It doesn’t mean it’s any good.They mean the same thing the military means by it - just barely good enough to get the job done.
Perhaps 24 years of aircraft maintenance with military grade parts and then 15 years watching contractors build military grade parts has left me a bit cynical. In spite of my giggles when I see a commercial product describing itself as military grade, it must be remembered that it will get the job done.
Mine arrived over the weekend. I found out when my old housemate told me I'd received a package. Turns out I hadn't updated my address since the move.Just got my prime mystery box.
Plastic 30cal can, otis universal cleaning kit, carabiner, and a sticker. Nothing to write home about but can't complain with it being free and unexpected.
