NSSF Calls Foul on USFWS Director’s Parting Shot on Traditional Ammo

“This directive is irresponsible and driven not out of sound science but unchecked politics,” said Lawrence Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel. “The timing alone is suspect.

Why I Will Remain a Big Bore Man (And Validity of Research)

The Thompson LaGarde test of handgun calibers has been brought into controversy by some, but it was the definitive word when conducted.

Others point to the success of the .45 ACP during WWII or the works of Elmer Keith and Skeeter Skelton to determine the best caliber to stop a threat.

Federal American Eagle Introduces Varmint & Predator Ammunition Bulk Packs

American Eagle and varmints spell on fun day any way you look at it. Well, unless you are the varmint I suppose… Varmint hunters like to shoot, but accuracy matters.

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.
