Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Polymer-Coated Bullets?

All bullets have a coating or lubricant that makes it easier to travel down the bore of your firearm.  The majority of bullets have a solid lead core.
Polymer coated bullets are lead completely covered in a form of plastic coating rather than traditional copper.

There are many advantages in using Polymer-Coated bullets:

Your firearm will not get nearly as dirty.
You typically see less smoke than normal when firing.
The Polymer lubrication is much better than it is with cast or jacketed bullets.
There is less friction between the bullet and the bore.
You will notice less debris build up in your barrel over time.

The maximum recommended speed (velocity) is 2,400 feet per second, which is well under the standard velocities reached with most pistol ammunition, which typically varies between 800 and 1300 ft/s~.

Are there restrictions for purchasing ammunition online?

Laws vary for each state.  We cannot sell or ship any ammunition to the states of: 

Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island or Washington D.C. 

Sales of ammunition to New Jersey residents are restricted to shotshell and centerfire rifle ammunition only.  

Shipping is not available to APO/FPO, P.O. Boxes, or International addresses. 

The purchaser must be eighteen (18) years of age or older to purchase rifle or shotgun ammunition as defined by federal law. 

The purchaser must be twenty-one (21) years of age or older to purchase handgun ammunition as defined by federal law.  By placing an ammunition order on our site, you are affirming that you are of age to do so.

How long can ammunition be stored?

Always store ammunition in a cool, dry place, protected from direct exposure to sunlight. If stored properly, ammunition generally has a 10-year shelf life.  We package our ammunition in heavy sealed 6 mil Poly bags that are sealed when they leave our facility.  If unopened, our ammunition will stay protected from varying humidity's exposure, which can be one of the most deteriorating factors for ammunition.

What is the difference between new and reconditioned ammunition?

All of our ammunition is manufactured with the same three main components: powder, a primer, and a bullet. The brass we use is new or reconditioned.  Our recondition brass is de-primed, cleaned, then resized to SAAMI factory specifications to the original size.  This is sometimes referred to as OFB - Once Fired Brass.  So, other than recycling the brass case, the components are otherwise exactly the same.

Why are my firearms not shooting the exact velocities shown on the packaging?

The velocities published on our ammunition packaging is verified and tested in near perfect conditions at a consistent low humidity and a temperature of 70°F~. Other factors of variance include: the amount of wear on your firearm and it's cleanliness, the interior barrel dimensions and length of the barrel, and the ambient temperature.  These are just some of the factors that can affect the velocity produced with ammunition.  Your results may vary from what we publish on our ammunition.

Can I return my ammunition order?

All ammunition sales are final.  Though ammunition is not eligible for return, we are committed to your 100% satisfaction. We case chamber check EVERY cartridge. We are confident in the integrity of our ammunition. Feel free to contact us for more information.
