Steyr Arms Adds 6.5 Creedmoor to Its Family of Pro THB Precision Rifles

BESSEMER, Ala. (May 3, 2018) — Steyr Arms will publicly unveil the much-anticipated Pro THB 6.5 Creedmoor rifle to the U.S. market at the 147th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, May 4th through 6th in Dallas (Booth #9735). The latest addition to the company’s Pro THB (Tactical Heavy Barrel) lineup brings the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge to the platform for long-range shooters and competitors.

The new Pro THB 6.5 Creedmoor is built on Steyr’s proven Safe Bolt System (SBS) bolt-action receiver with its 2+1 safety system. The SBS action is mated to a heavy-profile, cold-hammer-forged barrel that measures 25 inches in length with 1:8 rifling to maximize the potential of most 6.5 Creedmoor loads. The barrel retains Steyr’s signature swirl pattern, which is a unique and attractive byproduct of the hammer forging process. The muzzle is threaded to accept muzzle brakes or suppressors with a 5/8-24 RH thread pitch, and a thread protector is included.

With it’s match-quality single-stage trigger system, the Pro THB barreled-action is virtually identical to that of Steyr’s high-end, long-range tactical rifles. The barreled-action is mated to an OD Green glass-reinforced polymer stock that is weather resistant and exceptionally durable. The foreend is ventilated, and the rifle’s length of pull can be adjusted for the individual user by adding or removing buttplate spacers.

The Pro THB is fed via Steyr’s proprietary four-round, double-stack, polymer magazine, which features a two-stage locking mechanism. This system functions as a magazine cutoff to allow dry-firing/cycling or single loading single above a full magazine when locked in the lower position. When fully seated in to the upper position, rounds are fed directly from the magazine. An optional 10-round magazine and adapter kit is also available.

The Pro THB 6.5 Creedmoor measures 46 inches overall, and it weighs 9.3 pounds, empty. The rifle has a 20 MOA Picatinny rail mounted on the receiver, and it comes standard with a round tactical bolt handle. Steyr’s slim “butter-knife” bolt handle is also available from the factory. The rifle has a suggested retail price of $1,695, and as with all Steyr bolt-action rifles, the Pro THB 6.5 Creedmoor carries an unconditional 1 MOA guarantee.

Springfield Armory Severs Ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods


GENESEO, IL, (05/03/18) – Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.

This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.

It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.

Vista Outdoor Announces Strategic Business Realignment Plan

Vista OutdoorFARMINGTON, Utah, May 1, 2018 – Vista Outdoor Inc. (NYSE: VSTO) today announced its strategic business transformation plan, designed to allow the company to focus resources on pursuing growth in its core product categories. The plan is a result of a comprehensive strategic review, which began in November 2017.

“Our review identified product categories that are core to the company’s long-term business strategy,” said Vista Outdoor Chief Executive Officer Chris Metz. “We believe future investment should focus on categories where Vista Outdoor can achieve sustainable growth, maximize operational efficiencies, deliver leadership economics, and drive shareholder value.”

In conducting the strategic review, Vista Outdoor management defined several criteria to evaluate whether individual product categories are part of the company’s core. Vista Outdoor evaluated brands within its current portfolio based on their ability to do the following:

  • Serve the company’s target consumer – the outdoor enthusiast
  • Create cross-selling and other similar synergy opportunities
  • Achieve market leading positions and leadership economics
  • Demonstrate omni-channel distribution capabilities

As a result of this evaluation, and with support from its board of directors, Vista Outdoor will focus on achieving growth through its market-leading brands in ammunition, hunting and shooting accessories, hydration bottles and packs, and outdoor cooking products.

“Vista Outdoor is excited about the potential of each of our core businesses, particularly ammunition, which is our largest core business.” said Metz. “An increased focus on our heritage ammunition business will manifest itself in more innovative and breakthrough new products introduced over the next few years. We also anticipate that by prioritizing this business, we will be able to invest more capital to further enhance and expand our global leadership position.”

The company plans to explore strategic options for assets that fall outside of these product categories, including its remaining Sports Protection brands (e.g. Bell, Giro, and Blackburn), Jimmy Styks paddle boards, and Savage and Stevens firearms. Vista Outdoor expects that the execution of this process will significantly reduce the company’s leverage, improve financial flexibility and the efficiency of its capital structure, and provide additional resources to reinvest in core product categories, both organically and through acquisition.

“This transformation plan is a significant first step toward creating a portfolio of brands that is laser-focused on our target consumer and leverages the strengths of our combined platform,” said Metz. “This renewed focus will allow us to invest in these categories and their natural adjacencies. Coupled with our previously announced sales and marketing reorganization to drive a founder’s mentality back into our brands, this strategic orientation will also allow us to accelerate our efforts to expand e-commerce capabilities and increase our emphasis on market-leading product innovation. The end result will be a Vista Outdoor that lives up to the potential envisioned three years ago when the company was formed. We intend to begin the portfolio reshaping immediately, and anticipate executing any strategic alternatives by the end of Fiscal Year 2020.”

SIG SAUER Introduces New SIG 365 Ammunition


Newington, N.H. (May 2, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. introduces new, high-performance SIG 365 Elite Performance Ammunition in 115gr 9mm SIG V-Crown® and SIG FMJ loads. Designed for optimal performance in short barrel, concealed carry pistols, such as its namesake – the revolutionary P365™ high-capacity, micro compact – SIG 365 ammunition uses low-flash, clean burning powders for maximum performance and shootablity.

Training the way you carry is paramount, and SIG full metal jacket (FMJ) ammunition is engineered to shoot like SIG V-Crown jacketed hollow point (JHP) personal defense loads – same recoil, velocity and importantly, same point of impact – to ensure a seamless transition from training ammunition to carry ammunition. Corresponding SIG V-Crown and FMJ rounds are loaded on the same machines, use the same brass and are loaded to the same pressures. They use the same clean-burning powder that is consumed before the projectile leaves the barrel, for the optimal mix of muzzle velocity and muzzle energy, while still making recoil very comfortable and manageable.

SIG V-Crown stacked hollow point ammunition is especially effective for personal defense. The proprietary V-Crown bullet delivers exceptional on target energy with maximum weight retention and expansion for ultimate stopping power, and the V-Crown’s coated, nickel-plated cases provide enhanced lubricity, superior corrosion resistance, and reliable feeding and extraction. SIG FMJ training ammunition features durable, copper jacketed bullets that stay with the lead on impact and offers the perfect combination of affordability and performance.

“SIG 365 Elite Performance Ammunition is designed for exceptional performance in the new SIG P365 and other short barrel pistols,” said Bud Fini, Executive Vice President of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division and Special Projects. “We use clean burning powders that are consumed before the projectile leaves the barrel, resulting in optimal muzzle velocity and muzzle energy. SIG 365 FMJ ammunition is an affordable, high-performance training load, while the award-winning SIG V-Crown stacked hollow point ammunition is exceptionally effective for personal defense, delivering outstanding accuracy, reliable uniform expansion and maximum terminal performance.”

Muzzle velocity for both 9mm SIG 365 115gr V-Crown and FMJ loads is 1,050 fps from the P365 3.1-inch barrel with muzzle energy of 282 ft-lbs.

SIG SAUER V-Crown ammunition meets the FBI protocol test requirements and all Elite Performance Ammunition is manufactured to SAAMI specifications by SIG SAUER at the company’s new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas. For more information,

National Rifle Association (NRA) Endorses 2nd Amendment Lawsuit Filed by Ammunition Depot and California Rifle & Pistol Association (CRPA)

Ammunition Depot stands up for America’s Second Amendment Rights and access to ammunition.

Boca Raton, Fla. (April 30, 2018)Ammunition Depot has joined the California Rifle & Pistol Association with support of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in filing a lawsuit challenging California’s restriction regarding the sale or transfer of ammunition. The lawsuit, titled Rhode et al v. Becerra, challenges California’s new ammunition sales restrictions as a violation of the Second Amendment and Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.

The restrictions California is imposing on their residents include not being permitted to order ammunition online and have it delivered to their place of residence or business. Proposition 63 mandates ammunition retailers to check with the Department of Justice to determine if a buyer is authorized to purchase. Individuals and businesses must obtain a 1-year license for the California Department of Justice to sell ammunition. Individuals must have any ammunition purchased online delivered to a firearms retailer in order to take possession of it. If ammunition is shipped from out of state, the California resident may be required to pay a transfer fee and, starting in 2019, will need to submit to a background check. There is a penalty for failure to follow the retailer licensing requirements.

“These restrictions on the sale and transfer of ammunition in the state of California are a direct impingement on the rights and liberties of the residents of that state, and we at Ammunition Depot are committed to standing up for our customers and our Second Amendment rights,” Scott Blick, managing partner of Ammunition Depot said. “Shopping online offers our customers convenience, selection, great pricing and our uncompromising service, which we feel is the right of all citizens of the United States, including Californians.”

The Rhode et al v. Becerra suit will be the fourth lawsuit filed by CRPA attorneys with support from the NRA challenging the provisions of Proposition 63 and other “Gunmageddon” bills on the docket. Duncan v. Becerra has already succeeded in obtaining an injunction against Proposition 63’s ban on the possession of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. Two other lawsuits, Rupp v. Becerra and Villanueva v. Becerra are challenging California’s “assault weapon” restrictions and registration requirements and are also seeing injunctions.

Ammunition Depot asks customers and anyone concerned about our Second Amendment Rights to stay informed and subscribe to the NRA and CRPA email alerts and visit the NRA-ILA California dedicated webpage at and the CRPA website at

FBI Awards Contract for up to $19 Million of Specifically Designed Federal Premium Training Ammunition

ANOKA, Minnesota – April 26, 2018 – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has awarded Vista Outdoor a contract to supply FBI and other Federal Government Agencies with a high-performance Federal Premium 9mm handgun training round specifically designed to support their mission.
The IDIQ (indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity) contract, which has four option years, is for up to $19 million in 9mm handgun training rounds. This ammunition is built distinctively to FBI’s specifications using Federal Premium’s precision manufacturing and testing methods, innovative technology, and industry-leading components.
“We are extremely proud of this important contract, which continues Federal Premium’s long-running tradition of supplying law enforcement, military personnel and civilians worldwide with the most reliable ammunition possible,” said Federal Premium President Jason Vanderbrink. “This high-value, optimized training round utilizes a new match-grade bullet designed specifically for the FBI to maximize accuracy, along with Federal Premium’s Catalyst lead-free primer formulation to provide reliable, consistent ignition.”
Since 1922, Federal Premium Ammunition has been a staple for shooters wanting high-quality shotshell, centerfire and rimfire ammunition. The company’s relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation has resulted in numerous technological breakthroughs, such as the patented Catalyst primer used in the new FBI training round.
The extremely clean-burning Catalyst primer creates more uniform and complete propellant combustion, yielding minimal velocity variation and consistent bullet launch for improved accuracy. It is also non-hydrophilic, so it does not attract water molecules like DDNP-based mixes found in most lead-free primers, resulting in better reliability. The Federal Premium proprietary Catalyst primer provides the cleanest, most consistent ignition possible.
Civilians and other Law Enforcement agencies looking for similar high-performance primers in their range ammunition can find it in Federal’s full lineup of lead-free American Eagle and Syntech ammunition. The polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, which can shorten barrel life and rob accuracy, while also eliminating copper and lead fouling. Combined with specialized clean-burning powders, your gun will stay cleaner longer, so you can shoot more – and shoot better.
Federal Premium is a brand of Vista Outdoor Inc., an outdoor sports and recreation company. For more information on Federal Premium, go to

NiteSite® Unveils the Dark Ops and Dark Ops Elite at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas, Texas

Visit NiteSite® at Booth 12137 during the NRA Meetings and Exhibits, May 4 – 6, 2018, and see the NiteSite RTEK system and new Dark Ops system arriving this summer.

Fort Worth, Texas (April 2018)NiteSite®LLC will be exhibiting at booth 12137 at the upcoming 2018 Annual NRA Meetings and Exhibits, to be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, May 4 – 6, 2018. On display will be the popular RTEK night vision systems: the Eagle, Wolf and Viper. NiteSite is the US Sales Division of NiteSite LTD, the UK company and developers of infrared technology for predator hunting.

The RTEK night vision systems are capable of being used in both day and night situations and work with an existing rifle and scope. NiteSite RTEK systems allow for a night vision identification range of up to 500 meters (depending upon model and weather conditions). Easy and quick to assemble, NiteSite’s RTEK systems convert a day scope into a night vision system. NiteSite utilizes infrared in an innovative way, making their systems more affordable, reliable and more user friendly than traditional light amplification technologies. The RTEK night vision systems deliver crisp, ultra-clear night vision, regardless of the ambient light conditions.

“We are very excited to also reveal our Dark Ops and Dark Ops Elite night vision systems,” Marty Keena, Sales Manager for NiteSite LLC, said. “The Dark Ops concept is built on our successful RTEK systems, except the IR is a different wavelength, allowing the Dark Ops systems to be more covert. With the 940NM IR wavelength, the IR signature is greatly reduced so the subject is much less likely to notice you. This system is perfect for law enforcement and security, as well as hunters wanting to reduce the chances of spooking game. The new Dark Ops and Dark Ops Elite night vision systems will be available this summer.”

The Dark Ops allows for recording to a micro SD card and offers LCD screen dimming and an external camera focus. The Dark Ops Elite features are the same with the addition of a Laser Rangefinder. The MSRP for the Dark Ops from short range to long range starts at $749.00 to $1,249.00. The MSRP for the Dark Ops Elite from short range to long range starts at $999.00 to $1,499.00.

Leaking? Former FBI Director, James Comey, May Have a Solution

Image result for leaking

Time flies readers and once more Friday is upon us, so we look forward to a relaxing and enjoyable weekend; it’s also a great time to have a shoot the shit.

I don’t know about you all, but I can’t think of a time in our country’s history when there’s been more strife, obstruction and dysfunction, and the Congressional Confirmation process has become a monumental cluster fuck of biblical proportions and completely unbelievable! But, look,

Image result for aboriginal shaman

it’s occasions like this that make our shoot the shit such an effective tool, and a less costly alternative to paying some jackass that studied psychology to understand him or herself $150+ per hour. Candidly, you’d be better served by your average aboriginal shaman.

I’ll kickoff my rant by recapping some of the highlights from Director Pompeo’s confirmation hearings. The man was asked by POTUS to take the helm at the State Department so what does Senator Corey Booker ask him: “…do you believe that gay sex is a perversion?…” ONLY IF IT’S UNLUBRICATED SENATOR BOOKER! Ask the man a policy question! Alas! Secretary Pompeo hung in there and made it through the confirmation process. We extend our congratulations to Secretary Pompeo!

Unfortunately Rear Admiral R.L. Jackson withdrew from consideration for Secretary of Veterans Affairs. The amount of crap the Democrats threw at him, all unsubstantiated, was amazing and I can’t blame him for not wanting to be dragged through the mud. The man has an incredible service record and served in two administrations with extremely high fitness reports. So, we veterans lost out, and I struggled to understand why.

I suspect that Ronny Lynn Jackson sounded a little too country for the Democrats – “Heavens he may drive a pickup and own guns” I was hoping to hear the Admiral’s response to Senator Booker asking what he would do if he encountered two male nurses having anal sex. ”Would you find that pervasive Admiral?”

Next we have the James Comey extravaganza, maybe fiasco is a better word. The former FBI Director, James Comey, has been on every talk show on the planet (a little Clintonish don’t you think). Everyone, including CNN, says he was leaking and that several of those leaks included classified information and were property of the government. All I can say is that this leaking crap needs to stop so we may soon see a new James Comey product.


It’s potentially a great fallback if the book flops! Although I understand the book has sold 600K copies in its first week – all of which bought by the DNC (humor not fact). But, for you last minute shoppers, Barnes and Nobel has them marked down 30% with an additional 10% if you’re a B&N member.

Reuters says:

Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” has so far outpaced Hillary Clinton’s campaign memoir “What Happened,” so you can expect a full court press from Hillary because it was Comey’s fault.

We hope you enjoyed our shoot the shit topics. We remind all of our readers that you can make unsupported comments, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject altogether.

Have a great weekend, be safe and spend some quality time with friends and family.

Ultradyne Advances Rifle Marksmanship With New C4 Sighting System

Precision manufacturer Ultradyne has released their C4 Sighting system.  While taking the same position on your rifle as standard back-up iron sights (BUIS), the C4 Sight system offers more than just back up. 

Dynamount Front SightC4 sights are engineered for accurate shots at both close and extended ranges. Changing the way you use “iron” sights, the C4 system does more than simply point the rifle in a general direction.  Greater care, attention to detail, and engineering have gone into the creation of the Ultradyne C4 system than any other set of folding sights.


Ultradyne Front Sight

It starts at the front.  Ultradyne’s unique design keeps the fully-adjustable front sight post centered between protective ears.  By enabling complete adjustment of the front sight, the rear sight remains free for tool-less, on-the-fly windage and elevation adjustments, just like on a magnified optic.  Opt for the Dynamount version and restore your sight radius to true rifle length while also eliminating the negative effects of free-float hand guard deflection.

Ultradyne Rear SightThe four proportioned circles of the front and rear apertures and protective ears align instinctively upon shouldering the rifle.  Dynalign keeps your sight picture the same regardless of windage or elevation adjustment so every shot feels like the last and trains you for the next. 

Despite their meticulous precision, C4 sights are rugged.  Both front and rear are 100% CNC machined from 4140 steel and 7075 aluminum and protected with salt-bath nitride and anodized finished. 

  • Rear sight includes two insert sizes with one stored in the elevation knob.
  • Front Sight includes 10 MOA globe sight.  8 MOA, 12 MOA, 14MOA, and blade posts available.

    C4 Front Sight Post Options

“C4 precision folding sights permanently changed my perception of what was possible without magnified optics.  I was quickly making solid hits on small targets well beyond ranges I would have previously attempted,” Aaron Lisech.

Brownnell’s has produced an excellent video demonstrating the C4 system:
