The last round you'll ever need!!!! ????


The invention of the G2R's projectile R.I.P.™ is related to the ability to control the way the projectile reacts as it passes through different mediums by control of the mfg process, geometry and the rate of failure at different zones along its axial length.

G2R's relentless study and applied physics have derived a radically invasive projectile that outperforms the rest.

A devastating new bullet designed to 'take out all your vital organs' has been released - aimed squarely at women who worry about protecting their own homes. Produced by Georgia based, G2 Research, the Radically Invasive Projectile or R.I.P, has been dubbed 'the last round you will ever need.' Intended to splinter into eight inviscerating shards, the R.I.P was launched at the Las Vegas Shot Show in January and footage of the devastating impact of the bullet has gone viral.

Black Hills Introduces Two New Bullets Designed to Improve Downrange Trajectory and Terminal Ballistics

Black Hills Ammunition

Black Hills supplies all of the 5.56 match ammo to the US Military’s Service Rifle Teams and counts a host of gun manufacturers among its customers. The company’s mantra is precision made ammunition at a reasonable price. No other ammunition manufacturer makes as many calibers as Black Hills. Black Hills has teamed with Sierra Bullet Company to make two new rounds. They both feature Sierra Match King tipped bullets for increased bullet coefficient. That means better aerodynamics for a flatter trajectory and more retained energy downrange. The 5.56 round uses a 77 grain tipped bullet, where the .308 uses a 175 grain tipped bullet.

Hornady’s New Security Division Unveils Its First Product

Hornady Manufacturing

When you think of Hornady, the first thing that comes to mind is cutting-edge ammunition and reloading supplies. What you don’t think of is gun safes. However, Hornady’s newest product happens to be just that, although not any run-of-the-mill gun safe. Hornady has developed a single firearm safe for a dresser drawer, table, truck or wherever you want to secure your gun but get to it in a hurry. There are a lot of similar safes out there with one big distinction: You don’t have to touch this safe to open it. Using RFID, or radio frequency identification technology, Hornady has brought to market a safe that opens instantly as you’re reaching for your gun. Rapid Safe, as they call it, uses three forms of RFID devices to open the safe. The first is a rubber band with an RFID tag in it that you wear on your wrist. This is also the most instinctive. As you reach for your gun, the RFID tag passes over a reader, and the safe pops open presenting your gun to be quickly drawn. There is also a key tag and a credit card sized RFID tag that will similarly open the safe. For backup purposes, you can enter a code in the keypad on the top or open it with a barrel key. As with all Hornady products, this first-of-its-kind safe is well thought out and well executed.


Savage Arms Adds AccuTrigger to Axis Rifle

Savage Arms

Savage introduced a new version of its popular Axis rifle this year. As you may know, the Axis is America’s best-selling bolt action rifle. In a gun test we did last year with a number of bolt action rifles, we were able to get one minute of angle accuracy with it. That’s all rounds into one inch at 100 yards. The new gun, dubbed the Axis II Xp, is an upgraded version of the original Axis. For an extra $89 you get the famous AccuTrigger that’s not available on the original Axis, plus an upgraded scope. The new scope is a Weaver Kaspa 3-9×40, professionally mounted and bore sighted. The scope alone is valued at $100 more than the scope on the original Axis. Add in the AccuTrigger, and you can see what I mean about Savage delivering value.


American Rifle Company

American Rifle Company

American Rifle Company has been building and selling some great scope mounts, but the intent has always been to build guns. The company was at SHOT Show with the prototypes for these guns, most notably the M2 precision rifle. This is a multi-caliber platform that will handle everything from .308 Winchester to .338 Lapua Magnum. While their other rifle, the M5 Mausenfield, was built on a Remington 700 footprint, the M2 has a custom footprint.
