    I still haven't been able to get out and shoot this stuff. Still looking for reviews on it though.

    They don't have a web site yet. I got it at the PDX gun show. They are based out of Manzanita, OR. He said that he will most likely be at the pdx shows from now on and a few others.

    I tried some of their 9mm jhp (115 grain xtp). It seems fine to me and at $15/50 it's at least good for practice. MK Tactical sells it.

    I work with a guy whose father in law owns T.R.A.S.K River ammo. He just started produceing the ammo last year. I load my own so have not tried any yet.

    He seems like a pretty legit loader. I asked a lot of questions about his process and specs on the ammo, and he appeared to have an honest answer to every question. More than I can say for some of the other ammo manufacturers in the area.

    I talked to the guy from TRASK at shotshow this year, he was sharing a booth with Mike, the guy from Grizzly Cartridge. Good guys, very knowledgeable, spent a lot of time talking about tearing apart camdexes and ammoloads. I will testify that at least in theory, those guys know what they're doing.

    Yes, that's true.


    There were two different hollow point types, I don't really know the big difference except one was designated for LE, and the other wasn't; and two different FMJ types, one was a flat nose, while the other was rounded. The total variety is 4.

    The difference, if I recall correctly, is that that the LE boxes have less "flash" with the powder. I don't know jack about this, nor do I care, as I'm buying ammunition for its efficiency to work under stressful environments.

    The man selling me the ammunition (45 AUTO) said he uses it (hp ammo) without any problems in his 1911 (IIRC). I didn't believe him, but then again I don't own a 1911.

    I wish they had a location that wasn't so far from the Wash. Co. area.

    It could be random, but I bought two boxes of .223. After 20 rounds with a 36 inch group, I threw the rest away. Before all the critics jump n me, this is a rifle that holds half MOA all day and one MOA with my daughter shooting. As soon as I switched to a mag of match ammo, right back to normal. Sorry but I am a little scared away.

    Huh, I run this ammo in my Robinson XCR and it works great.
