Slide 6

Two Types Of Modern Ammunition Rifle and handgun ammo Centerfire Ammunition utilized for rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Preliminary situated in focal point of packaging base. Rimfire Ammunition has preliminary contained in edge of ammo packaging . Rimfire ammo constrained to low weight loads. Rimfire cartridges not reloadable.

Slide 7

Ammunition Components Basic parts are the situation, preliminary, powder, and projectile(s). Shotshells have an extra part called wad. Case: holder that holds all other ammunition parts together. Preliminary: an unstable synthetic compound that touches off the smokeless black powder when struck by a terminating pin.

Slide 8

Ammunition Components (cont.) Smokeless Gunpowder: a compound blend that smolders quickly and proselytes to an extending gas when touched off. Shot: the object(s) removed from the barrel. Wad: a seal made of paper or plastic isolating the powder from the slug or shot in a shotshell.

Slide 10

Common sorts of rifle projectiles Pointed Soft Point: high speed, precise slugs with a level travel way (direction); fabulous mushrooming. Adjusted Soft Point: well known for low speed bores; prescribed for tubular magazines.

Slide 11

Common sorts of rifle projectiles cont. Secured Tip: very exact with amazing development. Full Metal Jacket: greatest infiltration without mushrooming; these slugs are unlawful for big game chasing in many states.

Slide 12

Shotgun shells Shotgun shells (shotshells) utilize a slug or shot as the projectile(s) Slug is a lead shot utilized for chasing big game with a shotgun. Shot are different pellets discharged through a shotgun barrel. Shot size is versatile to the diversion being chased.

Slide 13

Shotgun shells (cont.) Shotshells should precisely coordinate the gage and shell length determined by the producer. This data is generally found on the barrel of the shotgun.

As pellet distance across abatements, more shot can be put in a standard shotshell. The littler the shot "number," the bigger the pellet distance across.

Slide 15

Shotgun shells (cont.) Shotshell set apart as "magnum" means shell has more shot or more black powder than customary shell. Magnum and standard shotshells are exchangeable if right gage and shell length are utilized.

Slide 16

Slide 20

M atch Firearms & Ammunition (cont.) Carefully read data on cover of ammo box.
