Smith Tactical Munitions now operational
« on: January 31, 2020, 01:36:19 PM »
So, originally this was supposed to be an ammunition manufacturing business...But there was so much red tape and testing required that, here we are...Finally.

www.Smith-Tactical.com

Right now, 90% of my orders are "reloads". I prefer the term re-manufactured...We take once fired 5.56LC and completely rework it, anneal it and test it...If I didn't tell you, you wouldn't know the difference.

Anyway, the STR is really taking off.

300 Blackout, especially.

STM is available for those that require freshly manufactured ammunition.

Our 75gr 5.56 is moving at @2850FPS.

-

I'm never going to mass produce a round to save $$$$...At that point you're sacrificing performance and reliability.

STM/STR is a match grade product with an accuracy/performance guarantee as well as being fully customer customizable.

That's right - You take our stock product, shoot it and over time, we design the perfect round for your rifle, over the course of every order we make for you.

Cool, right?

On another note, we also just upgraded our vinyl cutter and it's stupid awesome.

Pew pew.

But it will be like teaching a pig to sing, a waste of your time, and you'll only succeed in anoying the pig.

Yes, we'll have one in the trading post shortly and I'm fairly certain we'll be at Blue Cord soon.

Yeah, but I thought it was appointment only, no storefront.

Well I mean, there’s just one of me right? So if you swing by while I’m mid cerakote I can’t really stop the run. Especially if it’s camo or battlewarn.

It’s not an appointment as much as it’s a, ‘hey you there? Got 2 minutes for me to swing by?’.

We have a full showroom setup with cerakote, others and ar’s - All the fun stuff.

Bumping this again. - Going to answer a few questions.

We load for 300BLK, 5.56 and 308 primarily. We have tooling for 300WM, 338LM, 375CT and 408CT.

We have an active contract for 300BLK.

Our 5.56 is a MK262 Mod1 variant that's achieving @2850fps out of a 20" barrel.
Our 308 is a M118LR variant that's achieving @2700fps out of a 20" barrel.
Our 300blk has multiple variants and configurations.
We offer supers, subs, bullets from LD to Hornady.

If you want something specific reloaded and you know your loadout - We'll match it.

We check for variances every 20 rounds.

I have a very good relationship with Hodgdon and Hornady, those manufacturers will always be the most efficient and cheapest for us.

I don't mind subbing in your components, however there's a waiver of liability since we're using something of yours and we subtract whatever our component would've cost from the total round.

Right now, I'm working on orders for Southbury Trading Post and hopefully Blue Cord in the next few weeks - I haven't had time to talk to Bobby just yet or showcase our product. I feel like he'll be onboard once things get moving.

You MAY buy ammunition directly from me using the website or stopping by in Oxford.

Anything else, let me know.
