When choosing ammunition for personal defense there are many considerations. The balance of expansion and penetration must be maintained. Penetration must never be compromised. It remains the single most important terminal consideration.
For those just getting started with reloading, a “round” of ammunition is composed of the case, typically called “brass” and usually made of reloadable brass, an appropriately-sized and powered replaceable centerfire primer, the powder, and bullet.
Hunting season is around the corner, so now is the time to get out, start proofing your loads, and sighting in your rifle. At the moment of truth, your entire season will likely boil down to a single, perfectly-placed shot or you’ll be sipping tag soup for the next 9 months. If you are looking for the latest in ammunition offerings, look no further than for big game this fall. Granted, it is not out today, but it will be soon.
There is skill in reaching out and busting a song dog at distance, but there is heart-pounding, adrenaline fun in getting up close and personal with good ‘ol Wile E. Coyote. When you are going nose to nose with a coyote, you’ll want a shotgun, and few loads offer better performance than Winchester’s Varmint X.
I have been using Gorilla Ammunition for only a few months but have come to respect the brand integrity. I often see preposterous claims concerning velocity, expansion or what a bullet may be capable of. The claims are seldom borne out.
After more than 20 years as a lawdog, I learned two things. First, bring enough gun to the fight. Second, keep an open mind. The FN Five-seveN demands an open mind; it is different from anything I have thought of using. The innovative handgun
American Eagle raised the bar in target ammunition with its revolutionary new Syntech lineup. Cloaked in a synthetic jacket that tips conventional range wisdom on its ear, according to American Eagle, Syntech ammo shoots smoother, safer, cooler, and cleaner than anything on the market.
Federal Premium transformed muzzleloader capabilities in 2015 with the B.O.R. Lock MZ System and the Trophy Copper Muzzleloader Bullet. For 2016, that technology expands to include a new hard-hitting lead version. Like its predecessor, it provides outstanding accuracy in a non-sabot design that’s easy to load, scrubs fouling from the breech and ensures consistent bullet seating.
Federal Premium Ammunition has announced the expansion of its Micro HST lineup to include a 150-grain 9mm Luger load. The new 9mm Luger load is specifically designed for short-barreled, concealed-carry pistols. Shipments of this new product are now being delivered to dealers.
When looking for a new home defense ammunition, well, could anything be more critical? I mean, your life is on the line,
I have always felt that one of the greatest advantages of America’s Black Rifle is modular construction and the .300 Blackout is a popular option for many reasons.
There is a tremendous interest in research and development of defense loads for handguns. The majority of offerings use some variation on the jacketed hollowpoint bullet although a new trend is toward bullets that have
Forget whatever you previously thought about range ammunition, Federal Ammunition wants to revolutionize range ammo with the introduction of its new American Eagle Syntech. American Eagle Syntech shoots cleaner than traditional ammunition, because the bullet is encapsulated in a polymer. Without the metal to metal contact, copper and lead fouling is eliminated. This not only means more shooting and less cleaning, it leads to longer barrel life too!
American Eagle and varmints spell “fun” any way you look at it. Well, unless you are the varmint I suppose… Varmint hunters like to shoot (a lot), but accuracy matters. Seldom will a song dog wait around to see if your accuracy improves, but a target at the range will. That’s why successful varmint hunters spend plenty of time punching paper too. Fortunately, with American Eagle’s new bulk ammunition packs, it just got a little easier to practice and sight in at the range with the same ammo you’ll be using in the field.
Gorilla Ammunition’s loads have favorably impressed me with good quality control, excellent cartridge integrity and accuracy.
AKs and SKSs are staple on the battlefield, target range, and in many preppers’ gun safes. While a good supply of bulk surplus 7.62×39 is a must for the range or a SHTF scenario, a few mags of G2 Research 7.62×39 Ripout Rounds should be at the top of any shooter’s or prepper’s list.
