Tired of spending big money on handgun ammunition that you can?t return and then hoping that a) it feeds and functions correctly in your gun, b) your gun likes it well enough to shoot it accurately, c) it produces tolerable recoil, and d) it shoots to point of aim?
We all know guns usually shoot some ammo well and other ammo poorly. Littlestone Ammunition?s sample pack system helps you find a quality, effective and accurate load at a fraction of the money you?d spend buying numerous full boxes of different kinds of ammunition.
For less than you?d pay for a box of 20 rounds of most decent ammunition, you should try one of Littlestone Ammunition?s 20-round sample packs, which will let you test different types of ammo at much less cost. When you find the load you?re looking for you can buy a supply knowing it will do the job for you instead of just hoping it will.
This is a 50-round sample pack:
Thirty rounds loaded with 155- 165- and 180-grain Speer Gold Dot Bonded Jacket Hollow Points bullets. Ten rounds are the 180-grain SHORT BARREL version of the Gold Dot. The short barrel Gold Dot is specially designed to open at the lower velocity produced by short barrel handguns. Twenty included rounds are loaded with the standard 155- and165-grain Gold Dots, 10 each. Gold Dot hollow points are manufactured in three basic steps. First the core receives the bonded jacket; next an oversize hollow point cavity is installed with predetermined expansion folds; and lastly the final cavity shape and volume are set for the optimum performance for the cartridge and intended use. Gold Dots were the industry?s first truly bonded bullet, and the bonded construction provides exceptional weight retention to promotes penetration.
- Ten rounds of the 165-grain Remington Golden Saber Hollow Points: The Golden Saber is Remington?s offering for law enforcement and personal defense use. This hollow point bullet has some unusual features Remington suggests produce superior performance. Unlike most jacketed bullets in which the jacket is a copper alloy, the Golden Saber jacket is pure brass, which is said to release energy over a longer distance while mushrooming. Additionally, the skives on the hollow point jacket are cut in a spiral rather than straight down, said by Remington to allow mushrooming at a lower velocity. Additionally, this bullet offers match-type accuracy and deep penetration, while providing maximum penetration and nearly 100% weight retention. Starline brass cases.
Ten rounds loaded with 155-grain Hornady XTP bullets: The Hornady XTP is formed from a copper jacket over a lead core. The XTP, which stands for eXtreme Terminal Performance, is regarded as an accurate bullet with good performance over a broad range of velocities. It is produced in several versions for different applications. The basic XTP is a hollow point design engineered with skives to promote controlled expansion, typically about 1.5 times the bullet?s original diameter. It offers controlled expansion and deep penetration. Recommended velocities range from 700 to 1,500 feet per second. Some of the XTP bullets come with a boat tail design and are designated by the inclusion of BT in their name. Starline brass cases
