Department of Defense Chooses 6.5 Creedmoor Ammo from Hornady

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

Grand Island, NE — A specialized group from the U.S. Department of Defense has purchased an undisclosed amount of 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition from Hornady for its long-range sniper platform.

The 6.5 Creedmoor was tested and selected for engagements from 0 to 1,200 yards.

The purchase agreement coincides with a Department of Defense decision to replace the MK13 bolt-action 300 Win Mag with a 20-inch semiautomatic AR-10 in 6.5 Creedmoor.

With less recoil, the change will provide enhanced accuracy and performance, as well as reduced ammunition and rifle weight, compared to the MK13 300 Win Mag.

The 6.5 Creedmoor from Hornady provides world-class performance in a factory-loaded cartridge. The high-performance, match-accurate round features an excellent cartridge-to-chamber relationship and shoots well in all guns.

The 6.5 Creedmoor features proven Hornady bullets, specially selected cases, carefully matched powder and stringent quality control.

Army Futures and Concepts Center Evaluates New Force Structure

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Army is designing a new calibrated force structure to bolster capabilities at the brigade level and above, catered to meet regional mission requirements.

The Army Futures and Concepts Center recently started work on “AimPoint Force,” a new structure alignment that is optimized to meet multi-domain operational requirements and create overmatch, said its director, Lt. Gen. Eric Wesley, during a press briefing Tuesday.

The AimPoint process started when the MDO concept was published in December 2018. Then Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley directed FCC to design a force structure, resource unconstrained, that could fight MDO and win.

Affectionately called the Whiteboard Force, he said, the idea was to create a force structure that adhered to the MDO ideology but was free of any financial or resource constraints.

The whiteboard process eventually evolved into AimPoint after Army Chief of Staff Gen. James C. McConville and Gen. John Murray, head of Army Futures Command, which oversees the FCC, identified the need for a “resource-informed design to responsibly guide modernization efforts,” Wesley added.

“AimPoint is not a lockdown design,” he said. “It is an architect’s design for a force structure in the future.

“When you’re resource unconstrained, you can go out and buy a Maserati — it goes fast and turns well,” Wesley added. “When you’re resource informed, you might buy a Corvette. It still goes fast and turns well, but you have to mitigate some of the differences.”

As the Army shifts from its continual support of counterinsurgency to near-peer competition, the force must continue to build out the echelons above the brigade level to compete in large-scale operations, he said.

“Those echelons have been mortgaged a bit in the last 20 or 30 years because our (brigade combat teams) were so powerful relative to our opponent,” Wesley said. “Now, we are contested in all domains, and our two peer competitors are investing in their militaries.”

With an emphasis on information warfare, cyber, and space access, the Army must “build back some of that campaign quality at echelon,” he added. Further, the force will need a way to connect capabilities to exploit opportunities at the BCT level and below.

AimPoint also targets formational changes to overcome the geographical distinctions between the European and Indo-Pacific theaters, he said.

The “tyranny of distance” is a significant challenge in the Pacific region, officials said. In turn, AimPoint looks to tailor the Army’s long-range precision fires, future vertical lift, and air and missile defense capabilities to meet regional requirements, Wesley said.

In Europe, the Army will need to rely on the rapid deployment of maneuver ground forces, he said. Therefore, AimPoint experimentation will target long-range precision fires, network, next-generation combat vehicles, and Soldier lethality capabilities, to name a few.

Establishing a calibrated force posture is a core tenet under MDO, and it will continue to be informed by “political and resource decisions,” Wesley said.

However, the Army has already taken steps to improve its posture with the revival of V Corps — a headquarters that was deactivated in Germany in 2013. It is being reactivated at Fort Knox, Kentucky, to provide personnel who will rotate to an operational command post in Europe.

With the need for long-range fires in both regions, the FCC also supports the establishment of a new Theater Fires Command within the AimPoint construct.

“Building out the ability to integrate fires at echelon is important to fight at scale,” Wesley said. “Penetration requires long-range precision fires to strike a combined arms army” to disintegrate an adversary’s anti-access and area-denial defenses.

“These are problems that the BCT commander does not solve in theater. Some of that will have to be done at higher echelons,” he added.

Anarchy Outdoors Introduces The First Adjustable Ergonomic Bolt Handle

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

North Logan, UT- Anarchy Outdoors, a leading industry innovator and supplier of precision rifle components and other high-performance firearms accessories, has introduced a significant improvement in bolt action ergonomics with the development of their new Threaded Adjustable Bolt Handle for the Tikka T1X and the Bergara B14 Rimfire.   No two rifle shooters are exactly alike and how each manipulates a bolt action may vary slightly because of stature, hand size or technique.  The new Threaded Adjustable Bolt Handle lets the shooter adjust how much the bolt handle is swept rearward which can have a significant effect on the functionality.   Anarchy Outdoors is developing this new bolt handle for other models of rifles as well.

Part of maximizing the accuracy and functionality of any rifle system is properly fitting it to the shooter.  The Threaded Adjustable Bolt Handle addresses the fine motor skills of how the shooter works the action, enabling precise placement of where handle and bolt knob are located in relation to the shooter’s hand.  The sweep of the handle can be adjusted by rotation so it is closer to the grip and rifle or further away.  Fine tuning the location of the bolt knob can have a dramatic effect on the overall feel of the rifle when working the bolt action.  Installation and adjustment are simple, and once the handle is tuned to the user’s preference, simply lock it in place with the knurled locking collar.

Anarchy Outdoors is the leader in aftermarket bolt handle upgrades offering models for rifles including Ruger, Tikka, CZ, Thompson Center, Winchester, various rimfires and more.  The Anarchy Outdoors Threaded Adjustable Bolt Handles are the next evolution in their bolt handle upgrade product line.  They are currently available, accept any bolt knob with 5/16”-24TPI and are made from 17-4 Stainless steel with a satin finish or blackened finish.  The Threaded Adjustable Bolt Handles have an MSRP of $54.99.
