  • New Ammo and Components Comapny, What Do You Want to See?

    Modern Arms International has joined Sniper's Hide as a commercial sales member. We have a good selection of components and ammo in stock now:
    https://secure.modernarmsinternation...p-by-category/

    But, we are also seeking input from members here for potential new products in the near future. What would you like to see?

    1. Who makes your brass - since guys will want to know
    2. more bullet selection - very few of us still shoot .308
    -- 6.5mm 6mm would be a good start

    I think your in a tough market with components since there are a lot of good manufacturers already around... I wish you luck since consumers always benefit from market competition !

      Affordable ammo.

      Not everyone reloads; possibly 2 lines of ammunition?

      One line with premium brass for reloads.

      Second line with decent enough brass or aluminum casing for non-reloaders at a lower cost.

      I'd buy the 2nd line if it shot straight and the SD is decent.

        Checked out your site. As herofish said, most of us have moved to 6 or 6.5mm in one variant or another. The fact that you don't have 6.5cm ammo is already putting you behind the curve for me. Those of us that still keep a .308 in the lineup are shooting heavier bullets than you're currently loading. Take a look at www.precisionrifleblog.com and see "what the pros use". From following caliber trends, their calibers tend to be at the cutting edge of where the rest of us will eventually go once factory ammo is available. I haven't gone to one of the 6mm offerings yet because I'm waiting to see which of them is going to get the best support in factory ammo.

        I don't reload, so I actively research and seek ammo companies that are providing the best options in factory match ammo. As a smaller company you're in position to keep on top of the newest projectiles and respond faster to the market than the big guys are.

        Keep in mind that a huge portion of us, even those that don't handload, chrono our ammo and do so each time we change lot #s. If you're not keeping a competitive SD then it's not of much use unless it's cheap enough for shorter range practice ammo.

        The good/bad news is that we share a ton of information with each other about our experiences. If you bring a great product and meet delivery timelines word will spread very quickly that there's a new company worth doing business with. On the flip side, at least a few ammo companies have burned to the ground by screwing over members.

        Welcome to the Hide gents, the fact that you're one of the vendors that's chosen to support the new/old Hide is much appreciated. I'm sure some guys will at least start off with some of your subs and give a range report in the near future.

          Most of our brass is made by norma. The 338 is Lapua, and the 300 BLK is Jagman with our headstamp.

          6.5 and 6mm cartridges are on the way, after we sell some of the current inventory of 300 BLK and 300 WIn.

            Great news on the 6 and 6.5 offerings.
            If you haven't already, maybe post in the Semi-auto forum as well. There's always guys working on 300BO projects and looking for quality subs.

                      I'm doubting it.

                      Unless someone with a Type 10 FFL (that has had it since 2015) and an actual minigun attached themselves to people at a prior company that have outstanding liability to 100s if not 1000s of people and financial institutions.

                      Doesn't sound too likely; unless they're fencing the components that were already sold to people, or better yet, selling you the components people sent in and never got ammo made! lol

                      I'm doubting it, but holy shit if that would somehow be true lol

                        Went to your website looking for 308 brass, 338 lapua brass, 6.5 & 260 brass, 6.5 bullets, etc. Virtually nothing in stock. Disappointing. There are 10 other websites I can go to for these comman components that will have them in stock..........

                          Maybe I missed it, but barrel length specs on your velocity numbers. At least in the .300 WM and .338 LM.

                              No. We'd like to keep the thread we started on subject, about Modern Arms and suggestions for new products. We sold southwestern ammo some brass a few years ago, but are not associated otherwise.

                                Compnents are still in the works. The brass and bullet lines take a while to build. The 308 brass we have in stock is made for us by Norma.

                                        Your price on 338 is Legit!!!! Especially considering you're using Lapua brass. Excited for your future calibers. 6.54S, 6CM?

                                            Great. That stuff is super quiet, and accurate. On an outdoor range, with a can, the target impact is way louder than the report. It also works great in 12 twist barrels.

                                              Thanks, it is in stock, ships same day if ordered before 3pm, mon-thurs. We also will have a limited run of 300 Scenars up on the site today, and will have the Berger hybrid up soon.6.5 4s isn't something we have the sales to support yet, but it is a possibility. 6 CM will probably come after we have 6.5 ready to go.

                                                Bullets are a ways off. Our first bullet will be a 125 FMJ for the 300 blk, followed by a 220 FMJ for the 300 BLK for use in subsonic rounds.

                                                6.5 creedmoor loaded ammo will probably be the next major change to our lineup. We are considering using the new Nosler bullet.
