NEW Power-Shok, Non-Typical & Fusion 350 Legend from Federal Premium

The .350 Legend cartridge was only introduced 4 months ago at SHOT Show 2019 by Winchester, but it is already gaining a lot of momentum as a fan favorite for 2019.

Ammo Stockpiling: Why You Can Never Have Too Much ~ Rebuttal

Ammo Stockpiling: Why You Can Never Have Too Much ~ Rebuttal Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- -In a recent article on AmmoLand News, a case was presented as to why stockpiling of more than a few hundred rounds of ammunition was unnecessary. It was an interesting take, but much too limited, in my experience. In the end, the authors put in a disclaimer: stockpile as much as you want. The self-imposed limitations of the presentation were this: They only considered four reasons to stockpile ammunition. T...

Bullet Tractability And Barrel Twist Rate

Wirecutter has this video up on barrel twist rate.  Go to his place to see it. I don’t think the author of the video understands the basic concept and what’s going on here.  This is a screen shot of the video I linked on barrel twist rate. Bullet tractability is the degree to which the nose of the bullet follows the trajectory.  In the screen shot above, it doesn’t.  This can indeed happen if the bullet is overstabilized, something we concluded in our assessment of this. In the video (screen sh...

PRIME AMMO Responds to Litigation

Background: Our regular readers may remember this article back in May of 2018 about PRIME Ammo’s new 6mm Creedmoor offering. Cool, but not huge news.

Why Ballistics Gel Works And Caliber Arguments Are Dumb

Via BRVTVS, this is an interesting video. I have to say that I do have one problem with it.  Mr. Johann Boden speaks as if the only important factor in the high velocity from rifle ammunition (and here he’s speaking of the 5.56mm AR, which is an important distinction in the conversation) is the hydrostatic shock from velocities greater than 2200 FPS. That simply isn’t so.  We’ve learned over the years that the tendency to tumble and yaw (even in flight, but especially in tissue) and break apa...
