Indoor “Streaking” a New Favorite at Ranges

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -(Ammoland.com)- AMMO, Inc. (OTC:POWW), a technology leader and premier American ammunitions developer and manufacturer, most recently released the new STREAK line of visual ammunition.

STREAK's combination of HyperClean Technology and an illuminated, non-incendiary projectile have proven a winner with consumers and indoor ranges around the country.

STREAK's patented formulation incorporates a non-flammable phosphor material that utilizes the light emitted during discharging of the round to make STREAK glow. STREAK is not on fire and does not generate heat therefor making STREAK is safe for indoor range use where the illumination is best seen.

Early reports from the field mention STREAK visual ammunition is also a great way to wrap up a day of outdoor shooting, waiting until the waning moments of daylight too, “go STREAKING”.

“We were fortunate enough to get an early test run with AMMO, Inc.'s STREAK ammo. Our clients loved it so much that we have decided to do a weekly STREAK Shooting night at our ranges. STREAK ads a whole new dynamic to target shooting,” said Bren Brown, President of Frontier Justice, The Midwest's Premier Firearms Destination.

STREAK ammunition is intended for use in areas free of natural sunlight when the human eye's pupil is most open. Dusk-till-dawn and indoor lighting permit the pupil to open enough to see STREAK ammunition.

Contrast is what permits you to see a glowing object moving at the speed of a bullet. The darker the backdrop and target the better you'll see STREAK.

Streak ball ammunition is currently available in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP.  The STREAK line will expand to include hollow points in the same calibers and will be available in January 2018.
AMMO, Inc. will be releasing Streak Visual Ammunition in both red and yellow/green illumination colors and in multiple pistol and rifle calibers.

      1. I particularly liked the “non-incindiary” categorization; kinda went hand in hand with the music. And who said they had the rights to play anything? Poor ole Mark; gotta bitch about something….. Anne Murray more your style?

    1. It appears Ammo Inc does not know what ball ammo is. Ball ammo refers to the type of powder, either ball or stick. The military started using the term ball because they found ball powder had a better shelf life and some other characteristics.
      Round nose or Spitzer, fmj or other terms refer to the shape or type of the projectile. 45 ACP ball looks entirely different than 5.56 ball. 45 ACP ball is round nose. 5.56 FMJ ball is Spitzer.

      1. Idadho: They were referring properly to a ” full metal jacket non-expanding bullet round.” This should have been apparent to you because in the very next sentence they state; “The STREAK line will expand to include hollow points in the same calibers and will be available in January 2018.”

        1. I know they countered it with hollow points but ball ammo does relate to powder, not projectile.
          You, Wild Bill, many others including Ammo Inc should do the research.
          How does ball relate to Spitzer pointed projectiles?
          Ball has been the military standard powder for general use since about 1940.
          In the early days of the 5.56 cartridge, the M-16 was designed to fire stick powder cartridges but DuPont could not make it fast enough for Viet Nam. It is an extruded powder that requires a longer drying process. Winchester could make ball powder faster and cheaper. The ball powder was found to cause more fouling of the gas powered mechanism requiring more cleaning of the M-14 and M-16. It had not been a problem with 30 cal cartridges in M-1s. It is cheaper and faster to make ball powder so labeling ammo as ball was done to indicate this need to deal with this dirty powder. It burns hotter than stick with a more consistent ignition.
          Chrome barrels and other improvements to the M-16 reduced the problems with ball but labeling the ammo as ball has stuck.
          Since ball became the military standard, many believed it had to relate to FMJ and Hague since military ammo is all FMJ.
          Ammo Inc, as ‘experts,’ should know this. This press release uses the term ball but Ammo Incs web site does not refer to any of their products as ball. Maybe the PR person is ill informed.

          1. You, Sir, are picking nits for no good reason other than….well, for the life of me I can’t come up with a reason! There is a thing called common nomenclature and that is what is used here and what everyone understands when the term “ball ammo” is used.

            If you want to constantly want to correct what everyone else understands to be common usage, for decades, be my guest but don’t expect any support from most or possibly any of us. We just don’t care.

            1. It’s one thing for the general public to misuse a term when it has become ‘common nomenclature’ but quite another when the experts do it. The fact that the general public has been erroneous for decades does not make the general public finally right.
              The point was just that an expert should know the difference. As I said, this error appears to be a PR firm’s copy writer because Ammo Inc uses correct terminology on their web site when they define the projectile. It is just ironic that a PR firm that is supposed to elevate the perception of a brand would make such a mistake.
              I don’t care what the general public says.

          2. Idadho, I did the research…original research not the secondary research based upon what someone else has said, that academics like to rely on. I am well aware of the ball powder versus stick powder controversy.
            Everyone that I ever knew that talked about ammunition from the Major General that ran the corps support command to Private Joe Snuffy that unloaded the truck was taking about that jacked bullet that represented the rest of the cartridge.
            Surely there must be a controversy more worthy of your attention.

          3. Who cares what’s in The Hague Convention, we didn’t sign on to section IV. It doesn’t apply to us so why even mention it? Your beating this horse for the fun of it just serves to alienate you from everyone else. I urge you to stop digging a hole where it has been proven there is no water.

            1. Yeah, I know that suppressors are ‘legal’ but not without a $200 NFA tax stamp and the fed looking into areas they have to place being. I’ve already had a colonoscopy. I don’t want the feds repeating the adventure. Besides, if I got the NFA tax stamp for my wife, I could only shoot when she is present. Setting up an NFA trust is not worthwhile.

            2. Vanns,
              An NFA Trust is very worthwhile for those who need it. But, if suppressors are taken off the NFA list, there is no need for an expensive trust. Those cheapie trusts are not worth it. We have a top drawer NFA trust attorney right nearby.

      2. @Idadho, I’m pretty sure the “Ball” ammo is short for hard ball ammunition, which is easier than the non-expandable or bullets that do not expand language from the Hague Conventions. I could be wrong of course, I only spoke Pvt Snuffie for thirty one years, nine months, two days, and a wake up.

      3. A cartridge containing what is commonly referred to as a full metal jacket, ala FMJ, projectile. was called ball ammo by users long before they were aware of what type powder was contained there in

        1. @STramp, It is a good thing that there is a legion of people with hands on experience to keep these youngsters $hit straight. The difference between hands on, experience based, original research, knowledge and that watered down, read an article pabulum, and propaganda that passes for knowledge is stunningly obvious.

        2. Actually, it was called FMJ long before it was called ball. It did not even need to be called FMJ if it was labeled NATO. Ball did not become a determining factor in the nomenclature until the M-14 and M-16 were adopted. Ball was used to identify the needs to clean the M-14 or M-16 weapon more thoroughly.

          1. You know Idadho I just realized that I have seen you before. I saw you at several gun shops over the years hanging out and pontificating on firearms with your vast store of knowledge and firm grasp what is what concerning guns. I thought you sounded familiar.

            1. You must be delusional. I know the history of the term ball as it refers to ammo but I have never purchased a firearm at a gun shop. Those who use ball to indicate FMJ need to get a firm grasp on what is what. I find it interesting at how many demand that they know what isn’t so. It reminds me of a quote by Ronald Reagan — ‘It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.’

            2. I started shooting Bullseye competition around 1975 or ‘77. My first competition 1911 was labeled, by its maker, Ken Bingham, a “Hardballer”, and had that enscribed on the side of the slide. It was meant to shoot FMJ or, as everyone referred to them, hardball ammo (230 gr. copper roundnose bullets).

              To say that no one who knows what their talking about who uses that term to refer to a certain type of ammo is untrue and shows the ignorance of the person saying it. There aren’t to many of us left who shoot Bullseye anymore, outside of Camp Perry, but walk into any shooting circle that does and they’ll immediately know what you’re talking about.

            3. @Idadho, He did not say that you purchased a firearm. He said that you were hanging our and pontificating on firearms with your vast store of knowledge and firm grasp of what is what concerning guns. And why would you be so upset as to be insulting just because someone saw you in a gun shop?

            4. Roy said he saw me in gun shops over the years. If he thinks he did, he would be delusional. That is an observation based on his comment, not an insult. I don’t care if someone sees me in a gun shop. I just don’t go to gun shops. I have no need to. I prefer to keep my name off a 4473 in a gun shop’s files. Here in Idaho, ATF raided a shop and checked every 4473 looking for errors so they could charge the shop owner.
              Well, I would like to get a rifle in 300 Blackout for my wife if they ever legalize suppressors. But, until then, I have no need to be in a gun store. Walmart has ammo if I ever need to buy some.

            1. Hardball is an older term that dates to muzzle loaders.
              If ball refers to full metal jacket, why would there be Cal 22 BALL LONG RIFLE or CAL 22 HORNET BALL SOFTPOINT ammo used by the military?
              Softpoint is not FMJ and is against Hague.
              These terms are well documented in the Code of Federal Regulations.
              https://books.google.com/books?id=5ck6AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA375&lpg=PA375&dq=cal+22+ball+long+rifle&source=bl&ots=to7Jl-21P6&sig=h0JhhKV6YWxBQh3_SBVtT66AGdU&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjhj4PEvMvYAhUM0GMKHWvPDGAQ6AEIPTAG#v=onepage&q=cal%2022%20ball%20long%20rifle&f=false
              I have a CAL 22 BALL LONG RIFLE ammo can.

          2. Your comment that a “trust isn’t worth it” shows that you haven’t done your research on the matter. An NFA Trust is the ONLY way to protect yourself, your ownership and the line of succession of any registered items you own. I strongly suggest you educate yourself on the benefits of a properly executed trust.

    2. Think I rememberrrading in a past article that visual is not possible from forward viewer and only 15-20 degree off shooter sight center

    3. I always applaud private businesses and innovation, it’s what drives the country forward. This, like any other product, will appeal to a certain segment of the shooting population. Whether that’s enough to support the company…..well, we’ll see.

      As for price, I just found one site (let Google be your friend) that is selling the 9mm, 147gr for $.65 per round. Don’t remember what the number of rounds per box was.

      This will be a novelty for the range ONLY, IMO, as the bullet is a FMJ and even if it weren’t the first question I’d have would be, if I can see it can an opponent see it and trace it right back to me? That’s the same problem I have while laughing at movies with the tactical guys, with their lasers turned on, searching for someone in a house or in the woods. Follow the beam back to its source and you’ve got them before they’ve got you……but I digress.

      1. The iridescent component is only on the back end where it is excited by the powder flash. The opponent cannot see the back end of the bullet but they can see the muzzle flash. Muzzle flash is a better indicator of the shooter’s position.

        1. Too expensive for a novelty item just to shoot at night, but if the pat. was licensed to say Speer for their Gold Dot line of defensive ammo that might be nice to carry. I know they said they’ll expand to hollow points but Gold Dots is the only ammo I carry every day.

    4. I’m looking forward to seeing these and trying them to see if they are good enough to use in a low light class as we get students to familiarize themselves with the white lights. At .75 cents to $1 a round we won’t be shooting a lot of them though.
