Chris W. Cox on our Broken Background Check System

Members of Congress should reject the idea that expanding a broken background check system will make anyone safer.

ILA statement on Manchin-Toomey

Fairfax, Va. – Expanding background checks at gun shows will not prevent the next shooting, will not solve violent crime and will not keep our kids safe in schools.

Smokeless Gun Powder Pallet Sale for 50 BMG Reloaders

Torrance, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- Ballistic Solutions, Inc is having a special offering for 50 caliber re-loaders and is offering smokeless powder in bulk pallets at up to 60%+ off the average retail price for comparable powders, IE Hodgdon H870.

The powder we have available was originally manufactured for Winchester by St. Marks and the following is a breakdown of what we currently have remaining from the initial 190,000 lbs.:

  • 665 lbs of WC867 (7 barrels@95 lbs per barrel) (6 barrels per pallet) total weight per pallet is 570 lbs
  • 44,383 lbs of WC872 (2 – 30lb bags per box) (36 boxes per pallet) total weight per pallet is 2,160 lbs

The powder was demilled by a military contractor, is palletted and ready for shipping. It’s military surplus, pulled-down by automated machine press with vacuum extraction. This is a critical process as there are no contaminants and no moisture as is common with other pull-down methods,so the powder does not need to be filtered.

These particular powders have multiple applications. The burn charts show them to be ideal for 50 caliber reloading, as they are in the same range as H860, H870, 5010 & 50 BMG (872 is replacing 5010 by many reloaders.)

It can be loaded as small as 338. Other uses include: testing, explosives, pyrotechnics, movie & TV special effects, etc.

Our price for the remaining powder is $3.60/lb. Minimum order is one pallet. The powder is classified as 1.3 Hazard. The cost does not include shipping. Call or email to order this special one time offer. Get it while supplies last.
