Southwest Ammunition Heavy AR comparison and Tac Pro Precision Rifle Course


The key component in any shooting sport or engagement is not the weapon but the ammunition.  When selecting ammunition it is always dependant on what you intend to shoot and at what distance.  There are some major ammunition makers who produce some fantastic factory loaded ammunition but when selecting a company that can really do it all, you should look to Southwest Ammunition in Mesa AZ.  The small veteran owned business was founded in 2010 by 2 prior US Marines who specialize in making rifle ammunition.  Southwest ammunition has offerings in 5.56, .308Win, .300BLK, .300WSM, .300Win, .260Rem, .338Lapua, .45ACP, and 9mm Parabellum.  Southwest ammunition also offers reloading services for several calibers on top of their loaded ammunition.
