New Berger 6.5mm 130gr AR Hybrid OTM Tactical Bullet

  Berger Bullets has just announced their new 130gr Hybrid 6.5mm bullet. With a G7 ballistic coefficient of .290 you may be wondering where this bullet fits in. The popular 140gr Match Target Hybrid drops a better .317 G7 BC. It just so happens that Berger’s Chief Ballistician, Bryan Litz, designed this bullet specifically for magazine fed applications. Platforms like the “large frame” ARs have slightly less magazine length than their bolt action brethren. This new 130gr AR Hybrid seeks to give you the best balance of BC while keeping as much of the bullet as possible out of the case. Less bullet in the case means more room for powder and higher possible velocities. How this works out in the real world will be interesting to see. Let’s just hope that Berger is able to keep up with demand. We would love to see how these new bullets run in our 6.5CM MATEN project.

Safariland Adds 7TS Holster Fits for Glock and Sig Sauer Firearms

7TS 7360 Holster with Light

This week Safariland announced the expansion of their new “7TS™” Holster series. The new holster now has options for Glock and Sig models equipped with the latest Surefire and Streamlight weapon lights.

This announcement is very exciting for us. We have held off from looking at the new 7TS™ due to the lack of a weapon light option. When I first began using weapon lights on handguns I found it incredibly cumbersome to attach and remove the weapon light under pressure and in the heat of the moment. Anyone relying on a handgun as a primary weapon should have a light attached to it, and train to use it.

I have used the Safariland 6004 in a SWAT capacity and the SLS/ALS models in a uniform capacity for years. I currently use a Safariland competition holster for Steel Challenge. I love the quality and durability of their products. Although the 7TS™ is a very modern looking holster, I am looking forward to finding classic Safariland reliability.
