McMillan Teams with 'Packages from Home' Program

The McMillan Group has teamed up with Packages from Home (PFH), a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting our troops and their needs. The goal is to make the holidays a little brighter for America’s deployed troops serving overseas. McMillan has pledged to send a $100.00 gift certificate to all those who donate to Packages from Home. McMillan will be accepting donations (either goods or money) on behalf of Packages from Home.

Packages from Home for Troops

Here’s the deal: If you make ANY contribution to PFH, large or small, cash or goods, during November and December, you will receive a $100 McMillan gift certificate along with a receipt for tax purposes. The certificate can be used towards a McMillan gunstock or other McMillan product. This way you can save on gun gear while helping our soldiers serving far from home. We salute McMillan’s efforts to assist Packages from Home in supporting our troops deployed overseas. For a list of recommended items to donate, visit the Packages from Home website.

Superior Shooting Discontinues 111gr DTAC Tipped Bullet

Last year, Superior Shooting Systems (David Tubb) introduced a new, plastic-tipped 111gr bullet. It was hoped this bullet would rival the performance of the popular 115gr non-tipped DTAC, while working better in chambers throated for 105-108gr 6mm bullets. The design looked good, but, according to Superior Shooting, the 111-grainer “did not meet David Tubb’s standards at long range, so it has been discontinued.” The existing stock of 111s has sold out and “the project has been cancelled”.

David Tubb DTAC 115 bullet

Superior Shooting does have ample supplies of the non-tipped 115gr DTAC bullet in stock. This bullet is a proven performer with a 0.580 BC (as tested). DTAC 115s are available both “naked” and coated with Boron Nitride, in minimum quantities of 500 bullets. The naked 115s cost $105 for 500, while the BN-coated 115s cost $110/500. That’s a great deal if you prefer coated bullets, when you compare it with the time and expense of coating the bullets yourself.

To purchase, call 806-323-9488 or visit Superiorshootingsystems.com. From Superior Shooting’s home page, click on the “RELOADING” tab, select “Dies, Brass, Etc.”, then scroll down to find the DTAC 115 bullets at the bottom of the page.
