  •  you seem to presume a good bit about me (7+ / 0-)

    most of which is incorrect but then since this is the internet, I guess is does not matter.

    OK, do we presume the rounds were not boxed but were lying about loose?  The fact that there were precisely 100 would indicate to me that they were boxed so why not use that unit of measure?  As noted by other commentators, an
    afternoon of skeet would easily consume 100 rounds so why not put the number in context?

    As noted by others here, it is the same method cops use for estimating the value of confiscated  weed so as to conflate the importance of the arrest.

    In advertising it is called puffery; when the police engage in PR, it is the same thing

    •  Can you quote the part where the cops... (0+ / 0-)

      ...estimate the cost of the 100 (or 40,000) bullets?

      As noted by others here, it is the same method cops use for estimating the value of confiscated  weed so as to conflate the importance of the arrest.
      Thank you in advance.
      •  you are a literal sort of person aren't you? (0+ / 0-)

        BTW I forgot that 100 rounds could be 2 boxes of .22 ammo so it could be as much as the average plinker picks up at Walmart.  It is all about context and 2 boxes sounds a lot less ominous than 100 rounds, same as 1 lb of weed sounds less impressive than $20K street value
