Arms Gunstocks’ Bullet Puller
Arms Gunstocks introduced an innovative
new bullet puller that is easy to use.
Screw the bullet puller into the die
station of the reloading press - it only
needs to be finger tight - then put the
first cartridge into the shell holder and
raise the ram until the bullet is far
enough through the puller to be gripped
by the segments.
this is just past the middle of the ogive of rifle
bullets or well down on the truncated cone of
pistol bullets. Be sure to guide the bullet coming
in so it stays centered.
Now reverse the ram direction to pull down. The
bullet is caught by the segments and will stay in
the puller. Put the next cartridge in the shell holder
and raise the ram to push that bullet
into the bullet puller. As the second bullet goes
in, it will push the first one out. Thus, bullets
can be pulled as fast as you can cycle ammunition
through the press.
pistol bullets are sometimes hard to pull because
the crimp has more grip than the puller. If you
have trouble, cut a short piece of tubing just
larger than the cone of the bullet. Put a
cartridge in and raise it into the puller so the
segments can grip the cone. Push the tubing down
hard on the tips of the segments and reverse ram
direction to pull the bullet.
careful not to push a cartridge too far through
and have the segments grip the cartridge neck. At
this point it will either pull the neck or the rim
off the cartridge. To extricate a cartridge from
the bullet puller, turn the shell holder so the
cartridge entry opening is opposite the shell holder
entry opening in the press ram, then
snap the shell holder out of the press and off the
cartridge rim at the same time. Unscrew the bullet
puller from the press and remove as a unit. Then
push the cartridge on through.

mid-1900s, but produced from solid
metal, with a separate tip, the J36
bullets are available in calibers from
the .243 to the .458. Depending on
caliber, the ballistic coefficients
range from a low of .410 for the
.225-grain, .375 to a high of .715 for
the 160-grain, 7mm J36. Sectional

The J36 bullets
retain over 80% of their weight, even at

and expand to 1.5-2.0 times the original
bullet diameter. Due to their high
ballistic efficiency, the bullets

J40 match bullets in seven calibers from the
.224 to the .510 in a "baker's dozen"

but Rolls-Royce quality is not available at
Honda prices. Depending on caliber, some of the
bullets cost between $2 and $3 each.
Loaded ammunition for
popular cartridges is available for most of the
J36 bullets in wallet packs of nine rounds, or a
plastic case of 20 rounds. Only loaded .50 BMG
cartridges are currently available with the J40
bullets-in five-round packs at over $4 per
round. Other calibers will be special loaded
with J40 bullets for a minimum order of 200
rounds. The minimum rifle barrel twist required
to stabilize the J40 bullet design is provided
for each weight.
Lost River was exhibiting
an interesting new cartridge for law enforcement
and military Special Forces use. Called the .408
Cheyenne, the cartridge is based on the .505

switch-barrel Windrunner design by EDM Arms.
Twists of 1 in 10 inches,
1 in 12 inches and 1 in 13 inches have been
tested; the muzzle velocity is in the
neighborhood of 2,900 fps from a barrel

Mid-Range AR-30 Rifle at SHOT Show 2001
ArmaLite unveiled a prototype of its latest
project, the AR-30 Bolt Action Rifle, at the
2000 SHOT Show.
The AR-30 is a unique rifle sharing many of the
technical features of the ArmaLite AR-50 .50
caliber rifle. The rifles are based on an
aluminum stock that merges a machine rest with a
rifle stock for stunning stability. It is
intended for high-accuracy use such as varmint
hunting, advanced target shooting, and law
The machine rest elements consist of an
octagonal receiver, a matching V-shaped channel
in the stock, and a recoil wedge.
Conventional action screws draw the action down
into the stock, and the recoil wedge forces the
recoil lug into intimate contact with the stock.
No hand fitting or bedding compounds are
required, and the action can be removed and
re-installed without significant loss of zero.
It is immune to changes in temperature or
Two versions of the AR-30 are under development:
a conventional turn bolt action, and a fast
straight-pull action. The receivers
are equipped with special mounting slots in
addition to conventional threaded holes.
The slots mate with ArmaLite’s special sight

from the scope mount screws. The AR-30
will be available with optional integral bases.

SAF-T-HAMMER INTRODUCES THE VERSAVAULT
- Firearm Vault is a Highlight Of Convention for Safety & Security Company -
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb., 14, 2001 – Saf-T-Hammer Corporation (OTCBB: SAFH), the Scottsdale,
Arizona-based firearm safety and security company today announced the successful introduction of its new
VersaVault product at the 23rd Annual SHOT (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trades) Show held in New Orleans,
Louisiana, January 11-14, 2001.
The VersaVault, as its name may indicate, is a uniquely designed high security storage device ideal for firearms
and other valuables. Its design provides over 40 percent more capacity than any comparable product on the
market and offers the highest possible degree of electronic and mechanical security available. It features an
owner-programmable and user-friendly lighted keypad with four keys and has over 10,000 available combinations.
"We received tremendous response from gun dealers, gun distributors and law enforcement officials," said Robert
Scott, president of Saf-T-Hammer. "Timing a product to market is
essential for a manufacturer and our success at the SHOT Show has resulted in our
month-over-month sales posting a substantial increase. January sales of our
Saf-T-Trigger product were in excess of $10,000 and this was due in part to our exposure at the show."
The vault is designed for both vertical and horizontal installation, includes a steel mounting plate, and has a tamper
alert, low battery alert, key access for electronic backup and internal lighting. Its small 10" x 14" x 3.5" external
dimensions provides maximum space utilization and allows the VersaVault to be installed nearly anywhere. It has a
unique internal holster that presents the firearm to the owner for maximum speed and accessibility. This holster is
also removable, providing additional storage capacity depending upon the owners needs.
The VersaVault, which appeals to both gun owners and non-gun owners alike is the Scottsdale company’s third
product introduced during the past 12 months and is representative of the company’s plans to continue to introduce
unique and effective firearms safety products to the market. The company initiated shipments of its highly
acclaimed patent pending Saf-T-Trigger in October and will begin shipments of its new Maximum Security Cable
Lock later this month.
"Our very first product, the Safe-T-Trigger, made its debut at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in January
of 2000 and our continued success with theses events remains impressive," said Scott. "Our products have
historically received a great deal of attention by all of the event participants including the press, dealers,
distributors, firearm manufacturers and law enforcement officials."
"Our product-line is very inexpensive," said Scott. "Industry wholesalers and organizations are always on the
lookout for quality, safety and value. The trade has always been very positive about Saf-T-Hammer products
because of our simple, yet effective design. Our product introductions, at the National Association of Sporting
Goods Wholesalers Annual Show last November 16-18 in Tampa, Florida and more recently at the SHOT Show in
New Orleans have significantly expanded the potential market for Saf-T-Hammer products and we’re looking
forward to a very successful year."
The company was initially established to market the
Saf-T-Hammer, a unique two-piece hammer system that
provided a method of securing hammer-fired handguns from unauthorized access. This uniquely designed,
patented and award-winning product was followed by the
Saf-T-Trigger, a product originally designed to complement the Saf-T-Hammer.
The patent pending Saf-T-Trigger was soon recognized to have a much larger potential market in that it will fit on
nearly 90 percent of all current firearms and the vast majority of the 240 million firearms in circulation in the United
States. This tiny and affordable device is readily retrofitable to revolvers, pistols, shot guns and rifles as an
aftermarket product. The product, when installed becomes a permanent but unobtrusive part of the firearm.
The company also manufactures the Maximum Security Cable Lock for firearms. The cable lock has proven to be
ten times stronger than conventional cable locks currently available and doesn’t require permanent attachment to a
firearm. The design of the Maximum Security Cable Lock makes it "Shockproof" and unlike some products
currently on the market, will not open when subjected to jarring and its heavier steel cable is virtually
cut proof. The new cable lock is considered a perfect companion for Saf-T-Hammer’s other solutions for firearm safety and

HECKLER & KOCH
ANNOUNCE NEW RIFLE FOR 2001
Sterling, VA — The SLB 2000 caliber .30-06 rifle is the newest offering from German firearms manufacturer Heckler & Koch (HK).
Representing the ultimate achievement in the design and manufacture of a modern semi-automatic hunting rifle, the SLB 2000 combines high strength materials with HK’s renowned metallurgy.
The SLB 2000 uses a simple and robust short stroke, piston-actuated operating system. The operating system allows for a variety of popular
hunting cartridges (.308, .30-06, 7x64mm, 9.3x62mm), and the SLB 2000 accepts detachable 2, 5, or 10-round magazines.
The oil-finished walnut
hand guard is attached to the receiver to allow for a free- floating barrel, ensuring extraordinary accuracy. The action housing is manufactured of a high strength alloy with a wear resistant coating. Both the receiver and the barrel are tapped and drilled, allowing for the widest variety of sighting options. And, the specially angled pistol grip makes shooting easier and more natural than traditional hunting rifles.

H&K ANNOUNCES NEW
USP DAO TRIGGER SYSTEM
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: (703) 450-1900
Sterling, VA — Heckler & Koch (HK) announces the availability of the new Law Enforcement Modification (LEM)
Double Action Only (DA Only) trigger system for the USP handgun.
The LEM system was developed to meet the
specifications of the U.S. Immigration Service (INS) and is
currently offered to U.S. federal and law enforcement agencies only. Four thousand USP40 Compact LEM pistols
have already been shipped under contract to the INS.
The LEM system consists of a set of six drop-in parts that
can be installed in all existing full and compact size USP handgun. Unlike conventional DA Only trigger systems, this
system uses the rearward movement of the slide to pre-cock
an internal separate cocking piece within the hammer. The
hammer returns forward with the slide after loading or firing,
yet the internal cocking piece stays cocked. Once the trigger
is pulled, the hammer is driven forward by the cocking piece
to fire the pistol. The amount of force of the hammer can be
set to the user’s preference at 4.5 to 5.0 or 7.5 to 8.0 pounds
with a simple spring change.
The advantage of the LEM system is its reduction in
trigger pull weight over other conventional DA Only systems
that measure a trigger pull of 8 to 13 pounds or more. Since
the action of cocking the hammer is completed by the slide,
the LEM system eliminates any difficulty the user may
experience with hammer spring resistance. The user feels
only light slack and then short resistance before the hammer
is released to fire the chambered round, promoting improved
accuracy and hit probability. The LEM system is smooth,
crisp, safe and simple to use, especially for shooters with
small hands or limited hand strength. Fast, follow-up shots
afforded by this system result from the extremely short trigger
reset distance comparable to that of Single Action (SA)
designs. The user is offered the same trigger pull for each round fired and the transition from DA to SA is eliminated.
Also of advantage to military and law enforcement users is
the inherent safety of a long DA trigger pull with the absence
of external controls, including safety or decocking levers. Due to demand, HK is offering the LEM system for new
USP handguns only and not for retrofit in currently fielded pistols.
