Ammo Direct have released their July 2017 catalog.
Do your research! Their pricing for Freedom Munitions is similar to Aoraki Ammunition’s Geco, so you want to make sure you are comparing apples with apples, a lot of Freedom Munitions is Reman (remanufactured from once fired brass) as opposed to New so satisfy yourself you know what you’re getting before ordering.
If you have shot a lot of Freedom Munitions please share your experience in the comments.
To order call them on 027 305 5396 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Here is a link to an interesting article by Thomas Tabor on the .357 Magnum cartridge.
Here is a link to the Wikipedia article on this excellent cartridge which started the “Magnum era” of handgun ammunition.
The S&W 686 is a stainless steel revolver chambered in .357 Magnum and available in a number of variants including 6 and 7 shot versions and barrel lengths from 2.5 inch snubby to an 8.5 inch beast.
A good balance between muzzle velocity, accuracy and speed is the 6 inch version as shown here:
Product specs can be found on the 686 page on the S&W website
If you want to see how fast someone can shoot a S&W revolver check out Jerry Miculek shooting 12 rounds in 3 seconds including a reload.
