Ammunition Warning

Postby Barrett1 » Thu 16 Sep, 2010 12:50 pm

WARNING – Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc. has determined through independent third party testing that Silver State Armory 90gr TNT loads manufactured prior to June 2010 may develop dangerous pressure levels, and should not be fired in any Barrett rifles. Use of this ammunition may cause damage to your Barrett rifle, personal injury or death. A link to Silver State Armory’s statement will be posted as it becomes available.

SSA TNT 90gr loads manufactured after June 2010 operate at a lower pressure level and are safe to use.
