New Force X2 Personal Defense Shotgun Loads

Here is the full official Press & Propaganda release on that new Federal self defense shotgun load I talked about the other day.

ANOKA, Minnesota – July 13, 2020 – New Personal Defense ammunition from Federal turns shotguns into the ultimate defensive platform. Force X2 copper-plated 00 FX2 buckshot pellets are specially engineered to split into two equal-size pieces on impact. Shipments of this new product have begun to arrive at dealers.

Force X2 utilizes nine splitting pellets to create up to 18 wound channels which improves the transfer of energy from the payload to the target and minimizes the potential for over-penetration reducing the risk to bystanders. Force X2 is also loaded for more manageable recoil, allowing the shooter to stay on target for faster follow-up shots and better accuracy in a self-defense situation.

“Federal’s splitting buckshot is the first significant change to buckshot ammo in over a century. The expert ammunition engineers at Federal decided it was time for improvements in buckshot that would help in some Personal Defense situations,” said Federal Ammunition Shotshell Product Manager Dan Compton. “This new self-defense shotgun load is designed for tremendous energy transfer for a wider and larger amount of terminal damage.”

Testing by Federal engineers conducted at the Federal Ammunition factory in Anoka, Minnesota showed patterns of 4 ½ inches at 7 yards and 14 inches at 20 yards using an improved cylinder choke. Patterns of 4 ¼ inches at 7 yards and 12 inches at 20 yards were achieved with a modified choke. Tests using 10-percent ballistic gel were also conducted by Federal engineers. The range of penetration depth of the segmented pellets in ballistic gel is 5 ¼ to 14 ½ inches with an average of 9 ½ inches. The average depth when pellets start segmenting is 4.5 inches after impact.

Features:
• 12-gauge 2 ¾-inch nine-pellet segmenting buckshot
• Nine FX2 copper-plated buckshot pellets designed to split in half on impact
• Manageable recoil
• The pattern and power of buckshot
• Double the wound channels
• Less collateral damage risk from over-penetration

Amend2 Releases First Polymer 6.5 Grendel Mags

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO – July 14, 2020 – Amend2 Magazines is proud to announce new 6.5 Grendel magazines. These are the first ever polymer magazines dedicated to the 6.5 Grendel. The new magazines provide a lightweight and durable option for the growing number of shooters who prefer the capabilities of 6.5 Grendel and are ideal for 6mm ARC cartridges, too.

“Amend2’s 6.5 Grendel magazine provides impeccable reliability,” said Matt Bellitti, Amend2 General Manager. “These mags have been designed from the inside out to prevent nose-diving, and to ensure stability and control for the wide 6.5 Grendel cases.”

The Amend2 10 round 6.5 Grendel magazine is a sturdy, reliable AR15/M4/M16 magazine made of an advanced glass-filled polymer. It is a light, durable and excellent alternative to the standard M4/M16 USGI aluminum/steel magazines. The patented design combines internal stabilizing ribs and a new 6.5 Grendel follower. The result is lighter, easier to load, and provides greater reliability than any other Grendel magazine on the market.

Inside the magazine, rounds stack in a staggered pattern that narrows into a single stack at the top for optimal feeding. Because these magazines index rounds with the case wall instead of the case neck, they will also work flawlessly with 6mm ARC.

The first of these new 6.5 Grendel magazines will hold 10 rounds, making it ideal for benchrest and long-distance shooting. The magazines come in a variety of colors, including Black, Flat Dark Earth, OD Green and Gray and are available now.

FEATURES:
• Sturdy Impact resistant polymer with textured grip
• Anti-tilt super follower
• Heavy duty, non-memory, and non-corrosive stainless steel spring
• Made in the U.S.A.
• Material able to cerakote
• Proprietary Grendel internal design
