Get Entire December Guns & Ammo Issue for FREE

Guns Ammo December Free Issue

Merry Christmas from Guns & Ammo. This publication is making its entire 106-page December 2017 issue available for FREE online from December 12, 2017 through January 9, 2018. To read the entire issue for FREE, go to: GunsandAmmo.com/freepreview.

Guns Ammo December Free IssueThe free December issue will include the 2017 Guns & Ammo of the Year Awards (page 52) and a first-look at the new Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Compact, Shield and M360 lightweight revolver. You’ll want to check out the articles about: Winston Churchill’s Mauser C.96 Pistol (page 104), the Dixie Gunworx DOA Shooting Bench (p. 38), and Concealment Furniture (page 18) that hides your home defense guns. We also recommend the NovX ammo review (page 26). NovX is a new kind of ammunition with a hybrid stainless steel and aluminum case, and polymer-coated copper bullets.

If you haven’t seen a copy of Guns & Ammo recently, here’s a chance to sit down and enjoy a large issue at no cost. We found it interesting to see Guns & Ammo’s Annual Award selections (page 52): CZ P-10 C — Handgun of the Year; Barrett Fieldcraft — Rifle of the Year; Winchester SX4 — Shotgun of the Year. To be honest, we found all those choices puzzling…

Guns Ammo December Free Issue

Guns & Ammo magazine is one of 15 publications from Outdoor Sportsman Group. The publisher claims Guns & Ammo has more than 11 million readers (29.7 readers per copy) — more readers than any other firearms publication. If that’s really true, we wonder, frankly, why the magazine isn’t a whole lot better. With that circulation, and the high percentage of display ads (over 30% of the pages) Guns & Ammo should be minting money. That should allow the Editors to do some pretty exciting stuff. Unfortunately, many of the articles seem little more than sales brochures. And you won’t find much on precision reloading or competitive rifle shooting.

By all means, check out this FREE Issue of Guns & Ammo. After all the price is right. However, we believe you’ll find more reliable, useful information on websites such as ShootingSportsUSA.com, Rifleshooter.com, PrecisionRifleBlog.com, 65Guys.com, UlimateReloader.com, and, of course, our own site AccurateShooter.com. We provide 80-90 features per month on our Daily Bulletin which is always free. We also offer a very active Shooters’ Forum with over 37,500 members. Many top-flight competitive rifle shooters, barrel-makers, and gunsmiths are Forum members. You can learn from their expertise. If you haven’t joined our Forum yet, you should.

Blue Lapua Brass Boxes Do Double-Duty As Ammo Carriers

Lapua brass Ammo box

Since 2010, Lapua has shipped its quality cartridge brass in sturdy blue plastic boxes. Here’s a handy tip for you — don’t toss the plastic boxes when you load up your brass! These are double-duty containers. If you’re not familiar with “Blue Box” Lapua brass, you may not realize that the boxes are designed to serve as 50-round carriers for your loaded ammo and fired cases. (Yes we know some folks who’ve been tossing out their blue boxes without knowing how the boxes work as caddies.)

Snapped in place under the box lid is a rectangular plastic grid that fits in the bottom of the box. Pop the grid loose and slide it into the box with the smooth side facing up. Side supports molded into the lower section hold the grid in place.

VoilĂ , instant Ammo Box! Each grid contains holes for fifty (50) loaded rounds or empty cases. The convertible plastic container/ammo box is a great idea that Lapua executed very nicely. Now you have even more motivation to purchase your cartridge brass from Lapua.

USER TIPS: When transporting ammo you may want to put some foam over the loaded rounds. That will protect the bullet tips. Also, with shorter cartridges, this will help keep your loaded ammo and fired cases from moving around. You can also tape the FREE Redding Ammo Box Labels on the underside of the lids to list your load information.
