Ammo Direct have released their July 2017 catalog.

Do your research! Their pricing for Freedom Munitions is similar to Aoraki Ammunition’s Geco, so you want to make sure you are comparing apples with apples, a lot of Freedom Munitions is Reman (remanufactured from once fired brass) as opposed to New so satisfy yourself you know what you’re getting before ordering.

If you have shot a lot of Freedom Munitions please share your experience in the comments.

To order call them on 027 305 5396 or email
