You can’t find.32 Federal and that’s a similar premise. See this one being a flash in the pan.
Time will tell.
All I know is I won't be a adopter of it, heck they at the moment can't produce enough .380 or 9 mm and now they are off on this tangent.

Just came across this nugget of info.
"Pricewise, 30 Super Carry looks to be about the same price or perhaps just slightly more expensive than comparable 115-grain 9mm ammunition."
So at the moment a buck and a half per round.

Depends how much stroke they have to push it.
Everywhere I go I see 350 Legend ammo. Maybe not enough guns out there but it’s plentiful.
With the current shortages it’s pretty stupid to debut a new caliber.
I thing Springfield XD was the only other gun available in .45GAP and they dropped it pretty quick.

Beretta Holding Group Companies Temporarily Halt Participation In Large-Scale Indoor Events
January 5th, 2022
Beretta Holding Group Companies Temporarily Halt Participation In Large-Scale Indoor Events
Due to the sudden and dramatic increase of COVID-19 infections during the past 2 weeks, including many breakthrough cases, the Beretta Holding Group companies in the U.S.A. (Beretta U.S.A., Benelli U.S.A, Burris, and Steiner eOptics) have announced the immediate suspension of participation of their employees in large-scale indoor gatherings. This decision was made because of near-term staffing challenges and concerns about the ability to prevent contagion in enclosed, crowded spaces.
Regrettably, this means that the companies will not be present in their booths this month at the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The Beretta Holding Group companies in the U.S.A. confirm their full and continued support for NSSF’s mission and have already pledged their exhibit renewal for the 2023 SHOT Show.
The Companies will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation as it evolves and will reassess their decision as appropriate later in the year.

When 327 federal magnum came out I really liked all the data on the round. Waited a year before even thinking about buying a .327 mag LCR. I’m glad I waited. It just didn’t catch on. You can even shoot 3-4 different ammo types out of it.

Yup the 45 GAP was Gaston's vanity round and failed spectacularly.

From TFB:
Vortex Win US Army Next Generation Squad Weapons – Fire Control Contract


Vortex Optics’ submission to the US Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapons – Fire Control procurement program has been selected and is set to become the XM157 NGSW-FC.
The optic will equip the winning submission from the US Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapons program which seeks to select a new rifle and automatic rifle to replace the M4 and M249 in close combat units.
Sources suggest that the US Army will be announcing the outcome of the NGSW program in the next couple of months. With the apparent exit of Textron, the Army’s choice is between submission from SIG Sauer and Lone Star Future Weapons/True Velocity.
The Fire Control unit procurement program has been less well reported but is no less important as the ballistics of the 6.8mm round the US Army has requested the NGSW submissions use can be utilized at ranges beyond what is currently expected of riflemen. In April 2020 Vortex was awarded a development contract to provide prototype FC units for testing. Selection of the optic was originally expected in late summer 2021.
Vortex’s XM157 beat the submission from L3Harris Technologies to win the 10 year fixed price contract worth a minimum of $20 million but with a “maximum ceiling value of $2.7 billion for production and delivery of up to 250,000 XM157” optics.

L3Harris’s candidate for the US Army’s NGSW-FC system (L3Harris)
The XM157 has a number of next gen features including a veriable magnification optic, a built-in laser rangefinder and atmospheric sensors which feed into an onboard ballistic calculator. It also features a compass and intra-soldier wireless connectivity (presumably alongside the IVAS kit which is in development). It also includes visible and infrared aiming lasers, and a digital display overlay.
Here’s contract award announcement from US Army Soldier Lethality:
The Army has awarded Sheltered Wings Inc. d/b/a Vortex Optics, based in Barneveld, WI, a 10-year firm fixed price, Follow-on Production Other Transaction Agreement (P-OTA) with a maximum ceiling value of $2.7 billion for production and delivery of up to 250,000 XM157 Next Generation Squad Weapons – Fire Control (NGSW-FC) systems over a 10-year period.
The NGSW-FC system is a ruggedized fire control that increases accuracy and lethality for the Close Combat Force. It integrates a number of advanced technologies, including a variable magnification optic, backup etched reticle, laser rangefinder, ballistic calculator, atmospheric sensor suite, compass, Intra-Soldier Wireless, visible and infrared aiming lasers, and a digital display overlay.
The agreement minimum is $20 million and provides the U.S. Government the ability to procure fire control systems, supporting accessories, spare parts, repairs, and engineering services, to include requirements for other Department of Defense Services and potential Foreign Military Sales.
The NGSW-FC will serve as the fire control for the Next Generation Squad Weapons – Rifle and Automatic Rifle. The NGSW-FC is the planned replacement for the Close Combat Optic, Rifle Combat Optic, and Machine Gun Optic within the Close Combat Force (Infantry, Cavalry Scouts and Combat Engineers).
The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey, is the contracting activity.

U.S. Army Awards Winchester $20 Million Series of Next Generation Squad Weapons Contracts

U.S. Army Awards Winchester $20 Million Series of Next Generation Squad Weapons Contracts

Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri (US Army)
Winchester has been awarded a contract to prepare to produce the ammunition for the US Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapons. The type of the new 6.8mm ammunition manufactured at the Winchester-run Lake City Army Ammunition Plant depends on the winner of the ongoing, slightly-delayed, NGSW program.

Winchester assumed full control of the Army’s Lake City Army Ammunition Plant back in October 2020. It remains to be seen if a polymer cased round (from True Velocity) or a hybrid metal case (from SIG Sauer) will be produced. Currently, Lake City has fed into the NGSW program by providing the 6.8mm General Purpose projectiles designed by the army. The new contract will see them develop the infrastructure needed to produce the new ammunition to the scale needed by the Army as the new weapons are fielded.
Here’s Winchester Ammunition’s statement on the contract award:
Winchester, the largest manufacturer of small caliber ammunition for the U.S. military, announced that the U.S. Army has awarded the company a total of $20 million in cost-plus and firm-fixed-price contracts related to ammunition development, manufacturing facility requirements analysis and production capacity planning for the 6.8mm Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW) program.
Work will be performed at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri, the United States’ only government-owned, contractor-operated small caliber ammunition production facility. These projects were awarded under Winchester’s $8 billion contract to operate LCAAP.
“Winchester is honored to have been selected by the U.S. Army to execute NGSW program activities at Lake City,” said Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester Ammunition. “The NGSW program represents our military’s significant investment in the future U.S. Warfighter, and the work being performed under these contracts is the genesis for generations of NGSW programs to come.”

Announcing Springfield Armory’s new
HELLION!


By Jeremy Tremp
In the firearms world, many designs have come and gone; some stick around while others fade away. One such radically different approach is a proven design that packs full-size rifle performance into a CQB-sized carbine. It’s called a bullpup and Springfield uses it for the new Hellion 5.56 rifle.
Springfield Armory Hellion 5.56 bullpup rifle
With an overall length of under 30”, the Hellion offers an impressive balance of compact dimensions and capable 5.56mm ballistics.
A bullpup design moves the firearm’s action and magazine well behind the trigger group. There is speculation that the original meaning of the term “bullpup” dates back to the early 19th century, tying to the fact a bulldog puppy was “squat and ugly, but still aggressive and powerful”. While I’m not sure I agree with the ugly part of that, the design certainly does offer some unique benefits.
Forceful Foundation
There is a long tradition of service rifles forming the foundation for popular rifles for the civilian market. This has been proven by examples such as the M1903 Springfield, the M1 Garand, the M14 (and its semi-auto sibling, the M1A), and the M16 (and semi-auto offerings like the SAINT series). Often, the civilian rifles improve the basic design to improve usability and accuracy.
Springfield Hellion bullpup rifle being used during SWAT training
The Hellion bullpup offers shooters a short and powerful 5.56mm bullpup that is fully ambidextrous. It is shown equipped with a Nightforce NX8 1-8×24 F1 LPVO.
The new Springfield Armory Hellion has a similar, but more international origin story. In the 1990’s, the company that we now know as HS Produkt began the development of an advanced bullpup rifle chambered for the 5.56mm NATO cartridge.
Those efforts resulted in the VHS-2 rifle. Today, it serves with the Croatian Armed Forces and proved itself in demanding environments ranging from Iraq to Africa and beyond. And it was from this solid foundation that the Springfield Hellion was born.
Hellion Details
If you’re unfamiliar with the platform, let’s get you up to speed on the details.
Hellion gas system
The Hellion features a hammer-forged barrel and a two-position adjustable gas regulator.
The Hellion sports a 16” barrel while having an overall length of only 28.25” to 29.75”. It weighs only 8 lbs. Size is where a bullpup really shines. For an AR to sport an overall length of 26”, they must be equipped with a 10” barrel. A rifle with a 10″ barrel requires a federal tax stamp in the United States and slows down the purchasing process.
With the Hellion, you have a full 16″ barrel to avoid the arbitrary short barrel rifle designation and its associated headaches. Yet, you get the maneuverability of a CQB-style firearm. As a bonus, the weapon retains the ballistics of a full-size carbine.
Trained shooter armed with a Springfield Hellion bullpup rifle
Unlike other bullpup-style rifles, the Hellion has an adjustable stock, AR-type pistol grip and is fully ambidextrous.
The Hellion operates on a reliable short-stroke gas piston design with a rotating bolt. The system runs cool and clean.
Ambidextrous Operation
It is also completely ambidextrous, from the safety selector and non-reciprocating charging handle to the ejection port. The ejection port is user-adjustable for right- or left-hand ejection, without the need for tools or extra parts.
Hellion forend with M-Lok
The forend of the Hellion has M-Lok sectionsfor accessorizing the bullpup. You can also see the ambidextrous charging handle in this photo.
For right-hand ejection, you simply insert the bolt into the bolt carrier with the extractor on the right side at the 10 o’clock position. For left-hand ejection, orient the extractor on the left side at the 2 o’clock position.
Once you have the bolt carrier reassembled, you then need to reconfigure the ejection port covers. The Hellion features dual spring-loaded ejection port covers, and configuring them for operation is a simple process. Retract the bullpup’s cheekpiece and rotate it to provide access to the port cover locking pin. Slide the pin rearward and reinstall it in the ejection port cover side that will not be in use, locking it in place.
Shooter-Friendly Features
Another design unique to the Hellion is a five-point adjustable buttstock. Most bullpups are not user-adjustable for length of pull, so this further differentiates the Hellion from the pack. A two-position gas regulator featuring “normal” and “suppressed” modes is also part of the design.
Man demonstrating adjustable stock on Hellion bullpup rifle
The adjustable length stock on the Hellion means shooters of all sizes will be able to get a proper fit for safe and accurate shooting.
Another great feature of the Hellion is the inclusion of built-in, high-quality, flip-up iron sights integrated with the top strip of Picatinny rail. When down, they are perfectly out of your way, and once deployed they are sturdy and very easy to use. The Hellion sights deploy with a press of a button and spring into position and then lock in place. The rear peep sight has multiple apertures to scroll through depending on the distance at which you are shooting.
Hellion Specifications
Here are the specs on the Springfield Armory Hellion:
Chambering5.56 NATO/.223 Rem
Barrel16.0″ CMV, 1:7″ twist
Weight8.0 lbs
Overall Length28.25″-29.75″
SightsIntegrated flip-up

GripBCMGUNFIGHTER Mod 3
HandguardPolymer with M-Lok attachment points
ActionSemi-auto
FinishBlack
Capacity30+1 (one Magpul PMAG included)
MSRP$1,999
In Practice
Shooting a bullpup has some unique handling requirements that mostly have to do with loading and reloading. The magazine release on the Hellion is located right behind the magazine well. It’s intuitively designed to either “grip and strip” the mag or, if you have another magazine in your hand, press the release with only your thumb and then load once the empty has cleared the mag well.
Rob Orgel shooting the Springfield Hellion
The author worked with trainer Rob Orgel to wring out the Hellion on the range.
The manual of arms differs on releasing the bolt as well, with the bolt lever release located behind the magazine well and the mag release. Once you have inserted a new magazine, you can either move your hand behind the magwell and engage bolt lock to release it, or you can rotate your wrist and actuate the button with your thumb. Both methods took about the same amount of time for me, though the pinch method seemed to be the most reliable when moving quickly.
Shooting the Hellion was a lot of fun. I am a fan of smaller weapon systems that can stay close to your body. The compact nature of the Hellion made it extremely maneuverable in confined spaces, while also being a very smooth rifle to shoot. The recoil impulse seemed to be absorbed very easily, and muzzle rise was negligible.
Man training with the Hellion 5.56 bullpup rifle
Rob Orgel and the author put the new Springfield Hellion through its paces. With the factory sights, accuracy was good at varying ranges.
For my testing, I wanted to see how well the Hellion handled in a CQB environment while also being able to reach out past 80 or so yards. I called up my firearms trainer buddy Rob Orgel from ERTactical to set up the range safely and to see how we could best put the Hellion to the test. He booked a range with a saloon-type building with doors and windows through which we could shoot.

I have read and agree to the terms & conditions.

Sorry, an error occurred and we could not sign you up.
Try Again
We then went about setting up some paper targets outside the windows and doorways, as well as a steel target about 80 yards downrange. This was to see how well we could transition from moving quickly from window to window engaging targets at 15 yards and then make a quick accurate shot at distance.
AR pistol grip on the Hellion bullpup rifle
The Hellion employs standard AR-pattern pistol grips and comes with a BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 grip. Note the ambi safety selector.
The biggest adjustment for me was getting used to the longer trigger pull. If the bullpup design has one slight setback, it can be their trigger take-up. But once I got in the rhythm, it was just another precision piece of machinery in my hands. For my review, I used a Nightforce NX8 1-8X low power variable optic (LPVO) on an American Defense Manufacturing Recon SL low mount. The optic is super clear, has a great reticle and is great for quick and accurate sight acquisition.
The 1-8X power allowed me to engage targets at 10 yards rapidly, then take a knee, mag up to 8X and engage steel at 80 yards with accuracy. Even when running the shoot house at 1X the whole time, the optic was easy to acquire, and the ADM SL mount put it in the perfect position to not have to fight finding my position behind the Hellion. Also, I found the irons to be very easy to use, accuracy was spot on, and they were super quick to pick up.
Springfield Armory Hellion side view with tactical gear
Be it home defense or law enforcement, the Hellion offers a broad array of top-shelf features with the ability to further customize it with off-the-shelf accessories.
After a few tries, I was reloading the Hellion nearly as fast as my AR rifles. The weight of the Hellion being more towards the rear really helped to keep the balance in towards my body. The charging handle was easy to grab from the left or right, and it is spring-loaded to snap right out of the way once you let it go. Attaching accessories to the Hellion via M-Lok is amazingly simple. Much like an MP5 handguard, the Hellion handguard detaches with a simple pin. Once you slide the handguard off you can run cables through the slots or get the perfect spot for your lights, switches, etc.
Conclusion
If you are intrigued by non-traditional rifles and you like a shorter-length rifle with full capabilities to maximize the .223/5.56mm cartridge, the Springfield Hellion should be just right for you. It’ll feel new and fun, but still familiar. Also, it’s a blast to shoot. If you have the chance to check one out at the range, be careful because you may be putting in an order for one!

CCI Adds Lead-Free Option to Blazer Brass Line Of 9mm Ammo
Lead-Free

Lead-based ammunition has been showing its age over the past few years. Shooters have been looking for alternatives to lead to keep from ingesting it, and because of the superior performance gained by using other materials. I think we collectively realized that the risks involved with lead aren’t worth continuing along the same path. New for 2022, CCI Blazer has introduced a lead-free option for 9mm shooters. Introducing Blazer Brass Lead-Free Clean-Fire.
Hit the range and leave without a trace. New Blazer® Brass Lead-Free Clean-Fire® provides consistent, accurate performance on targets without leaving any lead behind on the range itself or in the air. It uses the lead-free Clean-Fire primer and flat-nose, lead-free projectiles that are as safe and accurate as traditional FMJ bullets—through all guns and against all targets.
Blazer Brass 9mm Lead-Free Clean-Fire
Lead-Free Clean-Fire

Blazer Brass Lead-Free Clean-Fire is designed to reduce your exposure to lead in the air while shooting. Lead also finds its way onto our targets. The projectiles have a flat nose, are 100% lead-free, and are safe to use in all of your 9mm firearms. The Clean-Fire primers are also absent of any lead. These should be as accurate as traditional full metal jacket ammunition. While they can help outdoors, these would be perfect for shooters who do most of their shooting indoors.
SPECS
  • Caliber: 9×19
  • Bullet weight: 100 grains
  • Origin: U.S.A.
  • Rounds per box: 50
  • MSRP: $27.99
Lead-Free Clean-Fire

The best place to learn about this new option would be the CCI website. If you want to see more content from CCI and Blazer, make sure you follow them on social media. CCI can be found on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Keep yourselves healthy!
