Ammo, Inc. is happy to announce its newest product offering, Streak Visual Ammunition. AI has obtained the exclusive worldwide rights for the incredible patented technology that makes this product one the most technologically advanced rounds to hit the market.
Unlike conventional or “hot” tracers, these Streak rounds don’t use burning metals to generate light, they use triboluminescence – light emitted from fractured crystals. Triboluminescence doesn’t generate heat like the traditional old school tracer rounds. Streak rounds are safe to use indoors and outside in environments where traditional tracers are deemed a serious fire hazard.
Since the material they use is applied to the aft end of the projectile, it is only visible to the shooter (a 30-degree viewing window). The projectile not being visible from the path it is traveling towards may not be super-important for the casual shooter, but has a strong appeal for military and law enforcement use.
Streak rounds will be in stores in the first quarter of 2018. Ammo, Inc. will be releasing Streak Visual Ammunition in both red and yellow/green illumination colors and multiple pistol and rifle calibers.
Bite the Bullet
Bite the Bullet RX rounds are the most consistent and cost-efficient everyday carry and home defense round on the market today. Bite the Bullet has been manufacturing ammunition since 2013 right here in the USA. With their state-of-the-art machinery, they wanted to offer a better alternative to the critical home defense and everyday carry round. Bite the Bullet welcomes the responsibility of how important this round is.
Ballistically, these new brass production rounds are some of the most effective and safest out there, offering maximum expansion and knockdown power while having the right amount of penetration. With standard deviation in the single digits, the shooter knows what to expect every time.
BTB RX rounds are also some of the softest shooting out there, allowing the shooter to recover quickly and keep the weapon flat. All variations of the BTB RX line are perfect for home defense, everyday carry, security outfits, police departments and even training due to our affordable price points. Now you can train with the round you hopefully never have to use. This ensures you know what to expect if that life-saving moment ever comes, or if you’re simply looking for a more accurate training round.
The Barnes are made with a 100 percent copper projectile, and the Eco frangible will be made with a copper polymer projectile. Both are lead-free Bullets. BTB is changing the way home defense and everyday carry is done. Join the BTB epidemic and pop some of the RX line – the world’s first “ammohistamine.”
