Ammunition should be stored in the factory carton or package. The labeling and identification on the original package helps to ensure proper future use. Ammunition should be stored in a locked closet or cabinet in a cool, dry area away from children, and away from firearms. Obviously, poor storage conditions, such as a humid or corrosive atmosphere, could cause product damage immediately.
The shelf life of properly stored ammunition is approximately 10 years.
If ammunition is exposed to fire or if ammunition is older than shelf life, contact your local authorities for assistance with proper disposal.
We offer a general guideline for the amount of energy at the point of impact recommended to bring down particular game.
For deer, antelope, sheep and goat size game we recommend 900 ft lbs minimum, 1200 ft lbs is adequate and 1500 ft lbs is preferred.
For elk or bear up to 600 lbs: 1500 ft lbs minimum, 2000 ft lbs is adequate and 2500 ft lbs is preferred.
For large bear and moose: 2100 ft lbs minimum, 2800 ft lbs is adequate and 3500 ft lbs preferred.
(One foot pound is the amount of force required to lift one pound one foot from the ground.)
Many consumers request information regarding the use of NATO ammunition in their firearms. While we realize that some ammunition guides show interchangeability between some of these rounds (5.56 in .223 Remington or 7.62 x 51 in .308 Winchester), use of and NATO cartridges is not recommended in a gun chambered for the commercial variation of the cartridge. There are large pressure discrepancies between these two versions of a similar cartridge which could result in damage to the firearm or expedited wear on the gun itself.
We do not recommend using any cartridge in any firearm whose barrel stamp does not match the head stamp of the cartridge exactly.
A general rule you can use follows.
For deer, antelope, sheep and goat we recommend at point of impact that you have 900 ft lbs minimum, 1200 ft lbs is suggested as adequate and 1500 ft lbs is the best for a humane kill.
For Elk or bear up to 600 lbs: minimum is 1500 ft lbs, adequate is 2000 ft lbs and preferred is 2500 ft lbs.
For large bear or moose: 2100 ft lbs minimum, 2800 ft lbs adequate and 3500 ft lbs is best.
When there is a concern regarding our ammunition, we request that you please call us at 1-800-243-9700 with your Name, Address, type of ammunition, type of failure, and the firearms used.
Once we receive this information, we will forward it to our ammunition plant so that we can send you a prepaid shipping label, and all appropriate packaging materials to send the ammunition back for testing.
We will contact you once our evaluation and testing have been completed to determine the best course of action in order to resolve this issue for you.
The ballistic co-efficient of a bullet determines its ability to resist air drag, maintain velocity and energy as it flies, to shoot with a flatter trajectory.
OThe higher the co-efficient the "sleeker" the bullet--making it less susceptible to wind deflection, and velocity or energy loss. A higher BC for the projectile means it will travel further than one with a low BC.
Some of the bullets with the highest ballistic coefficients are in our Premier Centerfire ammunition line.
The ballistic co-efficient of a bullet must be known in order to calculate accurate trajectories.
