Winchester Hyper Speed HP and new 555 Round Bulk Pack

The new Hyper Speed HP load is a very hot load that matches the ballistic characteristics of the CCI Velocitor round. The Hyper Speed HP, like the Velocitor, features a copper plated 40 grain hollow point bullet. The bullet has a published velocity of 1435 fps at the muzzle, which works out to be 183 ft-lbs of muzzle energy.

A significant difference between the CCI load is that is will be sold in a 100 round box, rather than the CCI 50-round box. This suggests it may be quite a lot cheaper that the Velocitor. If it is, I will defiantly consider switching to this for my hyper velocity needs.

Winchester is also introducing a 555 round bulk pack, giving it a slight edge quantity wise over the Federal 525 and 550 bulk packs. The bulk pack features high velocity (36 grain / 1280 fps) rounds with copper plated hollow point bullets.

DoubleStar Introduces DS-420 Handguard

"What is... the DoubleStar DS-420 Handguard," answered DoubleStar President, Teresa Starnes. The question, "Name the 12-inch handguard designed at the request of law enforcement to outfit their AR rifles with 20 inch long barrels. The handguard consists of a 4-rail picatinny system, is aircraft aluminum tough, and has a unique oval shape that fits both large and small-handed shooters." The DoubleStar DS-420 Handguard is a full 12-inches of aircraft-grade 60-61 T6 aluminum. This offers a tremendous weight advantage and strength to men and women in uniform, as well as shooting sports enthusiasts. The four-sided picatinny rail is a mil-spec system. This universal system enables you to mount a variety of tactical accessories to the forearm of the rifle. The 12 inch oval design leaves ample room for you to add accessories and allows both large and small hands the ability to grip the 20 inch barrelled AR rifles.

DoubleStar DS-420 Handguard

DoubleStar Vice-President Jesse Starnes said, "The DS-420 Handguard was specifically created in response to requests from law enforcement officers' for a longer tactical forearm to fit the 20 inch barrelled AR rifles. Our unique oval design allows for lights, lasers and other accessories to be mounted on the forearm and at the same time gives shooters of all hand size the ability to properly grip the rifle." The snap-on installation has a spring pressure that forces the handguard against the front handguard cap. A tight fit forms, eliminating any side to side movement. This precision fit provides a stable base of placement for all tactical accessories.
