First Look: Daniel Defense Ammo

daniel-defense-ammo-1

Daniel Defense has released the first caliber of high-quality ammunition it will offer under its First Choice brand: 300 AAC Blackout. The company also has plans to expand its offerings to include the popular 5.56mm and 7.62mm calibers in the future.

The new Daniel Defense 300BLK (7.62x35mm) Subsonic Ammunition is designed for target shooting and home defense. It is manufactured using the highest-quality components available, including precision 220-grain Lapua-Scenar-L OTM bullets.

"We're passionate about the launch of our 300BLK ammo," said Cindy Daniel, vice president of marketing. "It represents a whole new era for our brand — one where we can now ensure that the ammo that goes into our firearms is as high quality as the firearms themselves."

To ensure quality, every First Choice round stamped with a "DD" must undergo and pass a thorough inspection to ensure critical dimensions that affect accuracy are met before it leaves the Daniel Defense factory. The Daniels have a long-standing philosophy on seconds and blemished product: If it's not perfect, it doesn't go to market.

Daniel Defense 300BLK subsonic ammunition retails for $50.00 for a box of 30 rounds. It is currently for sale only directly from Daniel Defense.

Free shipping is included on any ammunition purchase of a case, which contains four boxes of ammo, or more.ammo-defense-daniel-3

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
