Ammunition

Why Non-lead Bullets? 

Lead-free Hunting


Sighting in your rifle
  1. Always shoot from a stable platform
  2. Start with an adequate supply of the same ammunition brand and bullet weight
  3. Tighten scope-mounting and stock bedding screws before you shoot
  4. Wear eye and ear protection (required on most rifle ranges)
  5. Clean the bore, then shoot a couple of rounds, before settling down to sight-in
  6. Know when to stop. When fatigue and/or frustration take over, you are wasting ammunition. Stop and come back another day
