If it’s entertaining, interesting or controversial, you can bet you’ll find it every Friday in our social media wrap-up, the Social Media Reload. Continue below to see what you may have missed.

Have you ever watched a Dollar Shave Club commercial and thought to yourself, “I wish I could receive ammo every month”? Well, your prayers have been answered! AmmoHawk is a new subscription-based company that wants to send you high-quality ammo every month. Choose from a selection of caliber packages, including 9mm, .22LR, and .223, and AmmoHawk will ship it to you directly by mail for just $69 with free shipping. Couldn’t get to the range this month? They can also store your rounds in your online “locker” until needed. Watch this video to learn how AmmoHawk works. (via OutdoorHub)

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” is in theaters now but there is another patriotic superhero you may not have heard of—his name is Captain Miculek. Dawning a tight Captain America costume, Jerry Miculek takes aim at a replica titanium Captain America shield with a trusty .45 ACP 1911 pistol. With his quick trigger finger and all the incredible slow motion action shots we’ve come to expect from Miculek productions, this video has us wishing for a Jerry cameo in the next sequel.

From politics to sports, science to entertainment, Facebook Trending Topics include it all.. well, except conservative news (allegedly). News broke this week that Facebook curators responsible for trending topics routinely suppressed stories of interest to conservative readers, injecting alternative news stories even if not as popular. Facebook Vice President of Search, Tom Stocky has since publicly denied the reports, but considering Facebook’s strong stance against firearms we wouldn’t be surprised if the rumors were true. Do you trust Facebook to provide unbiased news? (via Gizmodo)
