Predator Ammunition, Changing the Course for Long Range Shooting

The Predator patented projectile features an unparalleled technology accomplishing 1 mile+ shots.

Las Vegas, Nev./Horseshoe Bend, Idaho (October 2018) – Go West Trading (GWT), manufacturers of American-made rifle brass, and American Reserve Munitions, producers of quality ammunition for quality shooters, are proud to announce the game-changing Predator bullet specifically developed for long-range shooting. The Predator, both in the closed tip and open tip projectiles are available in .338 Lapua, .308 Win., .30-06, .300 Win. Mag., 6.5 Creedmoor and .260 Remington with other rifle calibers in development.

The patented process created from a monolithic lathe-turned projectile using proprietary brass and a patented parasitic drag elimination design on the tail of the bullet results in a round that eliminates dynamic transition instability during transonic flight speeds. What this means to the long-range shooter is that the bullet moves through transonic speed and into subsonic speed without any destabilization extending accuracy and distance by at least 20 percent.

“The Predator projectile is an ultra-long-range projectile,” Brian Lockerman, president of Go West Trading explained. “Essentially, the patented design defeats the problem of parasitic chaotic air flow behind the bullet. As air passes over the surface of the bullet, there is no drop at the base to create turbulence or instability. Instead the Predator projectile design forms a perfect cone shape pulse wave pressure shield behind the bullet. This results in a super sleek slipstream which virtually eliminates the airstream drag from ever forming.”

American Reserve Munitions (ARM) and Predator inventor Stephen Damron, U.S. Army Veteran, long-range shooting competitor and president of Dynamic Research LLC, worked together to develop the Predator projectile load using GWT’s match-grade quality brass for the .338 Lapua, 6.5 and .260 rounds (additional rounds in development).  The results are bullets with velocities of over 3,000 fps and with higher accuracy performance by approximately 20 percent.

“The Predator is clearly the top-rated, long-range bullet on the market today,” Vaugh Wilkes of ARM explained. “Since the Civil War, there has been little improvement in bullet design, until the Predator, which takes advantage of all the ballistic technology today. For extreme long-range shooters, the Predator is really the only bullet to achieve this kind of success.”
