What does mixed brass mean?
Mixed brass means different head stamps such as Federal, Winchester, PMC, Speer, ect. will be packaged together in your order. Please note that the shell casing is not new with the mixed brass, but is being reused with all NEW bullets, primers, and powders. This is so we can offer a more affordable product option. This ammunition fully complies with SAAMI specifications
What is Better, Stainless or Chrome-Moly Steel?
Over 90% of high-grade match barrels are made from Stainless Steel. Stainless is easier to machine because it is slightly softer. It is also easier to apply a fine, hand-lapped finish to a stainless bore. That said chrome-moly barrels can be just as accurate, when made correctly, and there is evidence a chrome-moly barrel will hold its accuracy longer than a stainless barrel.
What Is the Best Number of Grooves?
Barrel-makers report that, as long as the ratio of lands to grooves is relatively constant, there is no demonstrable difference in accuracy among 3-, 4-, 5-, 6- and 8-groove barrel designs.
When will my ammo ship?
The ammunition usually ships within 3-5 business days after the payment is received.
What are the differences between .223 and 5.56mm?
There are small differences that make each of these calibers unique. Most notably are the standards in which pressure is tested and measured. You can put .223 ammunition into a 5.56mm chamber, but not the other way around due to these pressure variances.
Is Freedom Ammunition ammo safe to fire in any firearm?
All of our ammunition meets American SAAMI and European CIP standards for pressures and cartridge dimensions, where supported by such agencies, and is safe to fire in any firearm in good working condition and originally chambered for the cartridge being used. Certain custom ammo and wildcat ammo are manufactured for a specific firearm and labeled as Non-Standard, and should never be shared with anyone else having a similar caliber, or used in any firearm other than the one it was designed for. Non-standard ammo is only safe for the firearm it was designed for. In addition, many custom made firearms have non-standard head spacing, chambers, rifling form, and barrel throats and the use of ANY ammo, other than that made specifically for that firearm may be unsafe to use.
How do I purchase a Firearm from Freedom Ammunition?
You must be at least 21 years old and have never been convicted of a felony. You do not have to be a Licensed Dealer (FFL holder) or a C&R holder to buy a firearm. If you are not a Licensed Dealer or C&R holder, you must make arrangements with an FFL holder in your state to receive the item and transfer it to you. A fee is normally charged to the buyer by the FFL holder for the transfer (Note to C&R holders: if you are a C&R holder, we can ship directly to you upon receipt of an inked signed copy of your C&R License via mail or a scanned signed copy via e-mail). Virtually anyone who is involved in the sale or distribution of firearms is an FFL holder, including gun shops. By contacting the FFL holder before purchasing a firearm, the buyer can verify that all state and federal laws will be observed. For most firearms, the buyer must be able to pass a background check.
How do I know if I am complying with my Local and State laws?
This is a very good question. YOU must know that your purchase will not violate any of your local or state laws. Asking the right people the right questions and research is the best answer. Contact your State Attorney Generals office, check their website, get in touch with your local Department of Law Enforcement, etc. Remember, Ignorance in not an excuse.
