Today, my impressions of CapArms ammo.
Several weeks ago, I was paid a visit by a husband and wife sales team as the local reps for a relatively new ammunition manufacturer. Chester and his wife represent CapArms and wanted to talk to me about their product line. By the time they left, I had several calibers of ammunition on the way for me to try out.
At the range on Saturday, we shot some 55gr match .223, some 147gr remanufactured 9mm and some 147gr match 9mm. The 9mm was run through multiple handguns and eaten up pretty quickly without issue. The .223 was what impressed me the most though.
Aside from the first 6 rounds to zero, every shot was suppressed. When we were complete with the 50rds of demo ammo, the bolt was still spotless. Those of you who shoot a direct impingement gun with a suppressor know what I’m talking about. The can forces all the garbage backwards and the bolt gets real nasty, real quick. Not with the CapArms ammo. Once we ran out of the good stuff, I dropped back to the surplus M855 rounds. Five rounds of that fixed that cleanliness problem. As stated in yesterday’s “review”, the groups were excellent and the rifle really loved the ammo.
