Browning BPR


The Browning BPR consists of three performance products for .22 Long Rifle ammunition for hunting and target-shooting needs. The 37 gr fragmenting BPR bullet splits apart consistently for rapid energy transference on varmints. This ammunition will be available in 50-round plastic packs.


The 40-gr. high-velocity lead hollow-point bullet features a muzzle velocity of 1,435 fps for maximum downrange performance. This new round is designed to develop the most amount of energy possible from a .22 LR rimfire round, developing 183 foot-pounds of energy at the muzzle. These will be available in 100-round plastic packs.

For plinking and target shooting, Browning also features a standard 40 gr .22 LR lead round nose bullet. The bullet has a black oxide coating that is ideal for feeding in semi-automatic rifles. These will be available in 400-round bulk packs.

Browning BPT


Browning's BPT will be available in full metal jacket options for handguns, and 20- and 12-gauge sporting loads will also be introduced. The BPT full metal jacket loads are matched training counterparts to Browning's BXP Personal Defense loads, which allows for similar felt recoil and ballistic performance between training and personal defense rounds. These rounds will also be loaded in black nickel shell cases for reliable feeding and extraction. BPT handgun loads will be available in .380 Auto, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 Auto.

Browning's BPT 20- and 12-gauge shotshell sporting loads use premium shot for tight patterns for the most performance possible when shooting trap, 5-stand or sporting clays. The high antimony shot serves to reduce deformation and ensure breaking targets with every round. The use of a smooth hull facilitates reliable ejection in any shotgun.

The company's first personal defense round is designed for superior performance in reliability, expansion and penetration in most self-defense settings. The X-Point round features a protective cross sitting inside the hollow-point bullet that shields it as it travels through intermediate barriers.

The X-Point is also designed to facilitate consistent expansion, penetration and energy transference into the target. The BXP hollow point is also formed to ensure consistency, toughness and reliability. Like Browning's full metal jacket rounds, the BXP comes with a black nickel-plated shell case that improves reliability and feeding. BXP rounds will be available in .380 Auto, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 Auto.

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

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.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
