5.56 Ammo Drought Almost Over…But Don’t Buy Yet!

Ever since the Dark Days of December, 2012, 5.56mm ammo has been scarce as as TTAG post without a link to an Israeli supermodel. Through this past winter and spring, shoppers would arrive hours before opening to wait in at local sporting goods stores on the rumor that a few cases of 5.56 might briefly […]

Tulammo: Don’t Blame Us For Higher Prices

  I run lots of Tulammo through my 5.56 AR and AK. It’s not the most accurate 5.56 ammo in the world, but it was cheap and it goes bang and it’s great for plinking and practice.

Smith & Wesson entered the fray […]

UPDATE: Remington UMC vs. Ruger SR9c – Are We There Yet?

I’ve just returned from the American Firearms School, where I fed our test and evaluation Ruger SR9c something other than 115-grain Remington UMC bullets. In specific, I shot ten rounds-plus from each of the five boxes above: Vollmantel, Independence (a soft-shooting budget brand that produces some big-ass muzzle flash), TulAmmo, American Eagle and Winchester White Box.
