What’s the purpose of signing upon delivery?

The purpose of signing upon delivery is to protect you and your products. By choosing to sign upon delivery, the carrier cannot drop off your box until they receive a signature. This method prevents boxes from going missing after delivery. If you choose not to sign upon delivery and your box is missing, we will not refund your product should it turn up missing. 

What happens if product is damaged/not-complete upon receiving it?

If you receive a damaged/not-complete product, the first step is to take pictures of the product you have as well as the box it came in. There are times where the box may be damaged but the product inside is not. If you happen to have a damaged product, please email us the pictures and description at marketing@ammarkammo.com

What is the Wait List?

The Wait List is designed to allow customers who are interested in a product but at the time of purchase, the product was out of stock. You can choose to be added to the
Wait List in which we will email you as soon as the product is back in stock.

What is Lake City?

The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) operated by Orbital ATK is the largest producer of military and commercial small caliber rounds in the United States and has a reputation of high quality production spanning decades. Military rounds manufactured at LCAAP have an engraved stamp surrounding the primer on the casing with “LC” (this symbol indicates the ammunition was originally produced at the Lake City location). After the demil process we are left with 3 components: bullets, cases and powder.

What are Lake City Components?

Lake City components are the pulled down parts of a cartridge/round. Components are made up of bullets/projectile, primed cases and smokeless powder.

What is the difference between New, Never Fired, and Remanufactured ammunition?

New: Ammunition produced with new materials for military or commercial use.

Never Fired: Ammunition that is made from reassembled pulled down components. No component had ever been used previously.

Remanufactured: Ammunition that is made from a previously fired component. Typically, this means the case has been used before.

What are pulled bullets?

A bullet is the projectile of the ammunition.  A pulled bullet occurs in the process of de-militarization of ammunition and refers to the projectile being pulled from the casing and separated from the cartridge and gun powder.  Bullets are pulled with either a collet or jaw method.

What is the difference between 5.56 and .223?

The 5.56 and the .223 appear similar externally but are different internally. The 5.56 casing is thicker to handle the higher pressure, thus meaning the interior volume of the case is smaller when compared to a .223. We do not recommend using 5.56 ammunition in .233 guns. The best course of action:  use the specific caliber of ammunition designed by the manufacturer of your weapon.

What is the difference between 7.62 and .308?

The 7.62 and .308 appear similar externally but are different internally. The .308 will occasionally be loaded to a higher pressure than 7.62. In addition, the 7.62 casing is also slightly thicker than the .308. Some people argue that you can use .308 rounds in a .7.62 rifle chamber, but we do not recommend. Specifications for your rifle should be reviewed, and the manufacturer of your weapon contacted, prior to loading any ammunition and the firing of any ammunition.  The best course of action:  use the caliber of ammunition designed by the manufacturer of your weapon.

What is the difference between TMJ & FMJ?

Total Metal Jacket (TMJ) is when the metal casing covers the entire lead bullet. This bullet is more beneficial when shooting because when exposed to extreme heat, lead can vaporize and be harmful if inhaled. Some indoor gun ranges only allow TMJ.

Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) is when the entire metal casing covers the lead bullet except for the base. The base is exposed lead.
The two types of jackets perform identically and many experts recommend using TMJ in enclosed ranges.

What is the difference between “Plinking” and “Target” Ammunition?

Plinking is a type of ammunition commonly used for specific range practice or used for outdoors. This type of ammo is not recommended for competitive shooting, as
the rounds will not have an exact grouping due to differences in weights of the ammo. The bullets in plinking ammunition typically vary in weight and are not consistent.

Target ammunition is used for competitive shooting and accurate range practice. Emphasis is on accuracy as well as performance.
