The Mag Life, the official online publication of GunMag Warehouse, is proud to announce that longtime industry insider David Reeder will be taking the helm as Chief Editor on Monday, January 20th ? the same day as Industry Day at the Range kicks off SHOT Show 2020. The timing couldn’t be better.

Daniel Shaw, Director of Marketing for GunMag Warehouse (and HMFIC of both The Gunfighter Cast and Shaw Strategies), says,

“David has been a friend for many years. The quality of his work speaks for itself, and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone in the industry who would not speak highly of his character. As a part-timer over the last few months he has significantly increased our readership. Having him on the team in a full-time capacity is going to help us tremendously to achieve some truly ambitious goals we’ve set for the year, not to mention for the overall future of The Mag Life.”

Reeder is the co-founder of Breach-Bang-Clear and a former Digital Editor at both RECOIL Magazine and Military.com. He is a prolific writer who has contributed to a wide variety of publications, including the Military Times, Guns & Ammo, US News & World Report, SWAT Magazine, Police Link, OFFGRID Magazine, SWAT Magazine, SWAT Digest, Officer.com, the SOLSY Group, and others. A retired USAF/ANG Security Forces SNCO and former (small town) LEO, Reeder spent several years teaching both MOUT and combat tracking, and in his law enforcement role served in a number of capacities including Patrol, Training, SWAT, PIO, a multi-agency drug task force, and OC for the National Homeland Security Training Center  ?  all of which, he will be the first to tell you, sounds far cooler than it really was.

Michael Lambka, President of GMWH, advises,

“David stands out among his peers for many reasons, but what I like most about him is his voice. He brings a certain tone that is rare in our industry. His finished product often contains an element of humor that is coupled with his knowledge and love for what we do. That love and excitement translates well to the readers of The Mag Life.”

Meopta DichroTech Reticle Technology Wins Gray’s Best Award

Sunday, January 19th, 2020

TAMPA, FL, January 15, 2020 – Meopta’s groundbreaking DichroTech reticle technology, which delivers battery-free illumination, has won a 2020 Gray’s Best award.  This advanced dichroic coating enables reticles in multiple color configurations to automatically adjust color tone and intensity in varying light conditions without the use of a battery.   DichroTech provides maximum contrast and visibility, enhancing target acquisition while speeding and improving shot placement.

The following are excerpts from the Gray’s Sporting Journal 2020 Expeditions and Guides Annual:

“This is the first time in the 25-year history of Gray’s Best that we have given the award for a reticle technology, but when Meopta refers to their DichroTech as “game changing,” they are not exaggerating. 

In recent years, the hot item has been illuminated reticles, with the illumination powered by batteries.  These have steadily improved, with such modifications as variable intensity to suit ambient conditions and prevent loss of night vision, and automatic shut-offs to conserve battery power.  Each has had its drawbacks, however, not least being the need for instant adjustment when seconds count (a glimpse of a moving deer at twilight) to batteries dying at the most inopportune moment, and the need to remember to carry spares.

Meopta’s new “dichroic” technology gives you a coating, for lack of a better term, which adjusts the reticle’s visibility to ambient light conditions with no action on your part.  It is permanent, battery free, and never threatens your night vision.”

• Terry Wieland, Shooting Editor

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from Gray’s Sporting Journal and appreciate their recognition of Meopta’s efforts to offer hunters and shooters a unique alternative to battery-powered illuminated riflescopes,” said Pavel Stastny, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing at Meopta.  “DichroTech reticles have been well received, and we will continue to add more reticle options using this new technology.”

DichroTech reticles are currently available in the MeoStar and Optika6 riflescope lines with more offerings to come.

Federal’s New Punch Personal Defense Ammo Delivers a Knockout

Saturday, January 18th, 2020

ANOKA, Minnesota – January 16, 2020 – Federal Ammunition has been a leading producer of law enforcement ammunition for more than thirty years. Drawing on that knowledge, the company recently set out to design a new self-defense load that would provide excellent overall performance from popular carry guns. The result of this effort is one of the most exciting new line of defensive loads to hit the market in years—Federal’s new Punch ammo.

This new line of ammunition will be on display in Booth No. 14551 at the 2020 SHOT Show, January 21-24 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. New Federal Premium Punch is scheduled to ship at the end of January 2020.

Punch provides a great option for common self-defense scenario use—where performance through more complex duty barriers, like those in the FBI protocol test, are less likely to be a factor.

“Many personal defenders think, ‘If it works for law enforcement then it’s good for me.’ That is a great guideline and still our ultimate recommendation,” said Laack. “But that may add features not required for everyday carry for everyone.”

Federal saw a need for a reliable, accurate, terminally effective option that doesn’t have to be the top scoring product in duty ammunition test procedures.

 “Concealed-carry permit holders, especially new shooters, need an uncomplicated answer to the question ‘What ammo do I need for self-defense’,” said Federal Handgun Ammunition Product Manager Chris Laack. “Things to consider such as function, reliable ignition, barrier performance, terminal performance, ballistics and other considerations are a lot to digest for most people. What some consumers really need to know is it will function in their gun, every time, and that it will be effective stopping a threat as quickly as possible. Punch is our easy answer for them.”

Most concealed carry permit holders are less concerned with factors such as barrier penetration through steel, plywood and auto glass and more concerned about choosing a bullet that is engineered from the ground-up to stop an attacker and work effectively in their chosen firearm. And, as the data shows, Punch bullets perform well in the tests that matter most to the average shooter—penetration and expansion through bare gel and heavy clothing. Federal has made Punch ammunition a natural choice for concealed carry.

What’s more, Punch ammunition features Federal’s smooth-feeding nickel-plated cases, advanced powders, and the sealed reliability of high-quality, sensitive primers. With Punch, self-defenders can be assured its components will do its job when it matters most.

The five new Punch options include a .380 Auto 85-grain offering with a muzzle velocity of 1,000 feet per second, a .38 Special +P 120-grain load at 1,070 fps, a 9mm 147-grain load at 1,150 fps, a .40 S&W 16-grain load at 1,130 fps, and a .45 Auto 230-grain load at 890 fps. What’s more, all these loads will be available immediately, and with MSRPs from $15.95 to $20.95 per box of 20.

Federal ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide or purchased online direct from Federal. For more information on all products from Federal or to shop online, visit www.federalpremium.com.

Satterlee took 24th overall in 2019’s PRS standings, and 17th over all in the NRL. In addition, he won 3 separate matches. Satterlee is an ideal brand ambassador for Savage Arms.
