Multiple grooves in the shank reduce pressure and improve accuracy. Large nose cavity peels back into six razor sharp petals.

The 30-30 Winchester Cartridge, originally known as the .30 WCF first appeared on the market in 1895 in Winchester's Catalog. The cartridge was originally chambered in the Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action. The modern use of the name of this cartridge is attributed to Marlin when it chambered its Model 1893 in the cartridge and the name stuck and has been this ever since. The 30-30 while considered to be a "entry class" of hunting firearm, has proven to be very effective on deer and black bear. The cartridge however should be limited to 200 yards except when chambered with ballistic tipped ammunition. The Winchester 30-30 has been used on deer, black bear, moose, caribou as well as pronghorn. This is a cartridge with light recoil, conventionally loaded with flat point or round point bullets for use in tubular magazines. Even though this cartridge was introduced in 1895 it remains popular today.

Bishop Ammunition is proud to announce and provide to the discriminating hunter ammunition for the 30-30 Winchester. While our 30-30 Winchester is considered re-manufactured ammunition, it's performance cannot be considered so. Each cartridge casing is hand inspected prior to reprocessing. The cartridge case is de-primed, full length sized, neck sized, and inspected again. The the cartridge case is refinished in our proprietary process to look like new, inside and out, and is then again inspected. Once the cartridge case as been polished it is now ready for loading. The cartridge cases are loaded by hand on commercial grade Dillon Reloading machines using a two step seating and crimp process. Prior to packaging every single cartridge is chamber checked which is made to minimum SAMMI specifications, then and only then after passing this last step is each box of the 30-30 Winchester Lead Free 150 gr ammunition packaged in 20 round boxes.

This is the cartridge that gave birth to the 30-30. The 30-30 is simply the 38-55 necked down to accept a .30 caliber bullet of .308 diameter.

The 38-55 is not an obsolete cartridge. Several manufacturers still offer the 38-55 in their rifles, both single shot and lever action. The 38-55 is also still considered the preferred thin skin game taking cartridge there is. Millions of rifles have been chambered in this cartridge and loaded properly is effective on brown and black bear.

The 38-55 was first developed by Winchester in 1876 by Ballard. The 38-55 was first used by Marlin in their lever action rifles and then by Winchester in their High Wall and lever action rifles.

The .38-55 is renowned for its exceptional accuracy at ranges up to 330 yd and properly loaded and developed by the loader can be accurate out to 1000 yards. The maximum CUP pressure for the 38-55 is 30,000 but will create a explosive combination in older turn of the century firearms made in the early 1900's and late 1800's as this was originally a black powder cartridge, 38 caliber under 55 grains of powder. It was originally intended as a true .380 dia. cartridge, however rifle manufacturers from the cartridge's inception still cannot get it right and grove diameters range from .375 to .382. Therefore you should always swag your barrel to determine what your grove diameter is before you choose a cartridge. To solve this problem, in lead bullets we use a .379 bullet and limit our speed to a maximum of 1300 fps to prevent leading. With a gas check you can go safely to 1600 fps but gas checks are not allowed for Cowboy Action shooting in their side matches. Jacketed bullets can safely be loaded up to 1800 fps. There are no lead free/copper bullets for this cartridge. The Winchester 375 is a modern variant of this cartridge.

NEVER EVER use .375 Winchester ammunition in ANY 38-55 EVER for any reason. If you do you may be making a trip to the hospital and most probably will be replacing your rifle.

The 458 SOCOM, (SOCOM is an acronym for Special Operations Command), is an awesome cartridge that is basically a lengthened 50AE case, necked down to accept .458 projectiles, a over all length of 1.575", and with a rebated .308 head configuration. This cartridge is chambered in AR-15 platform rifles as well as Bishop Ammunition Manufacturing's Bolt Action Rifle. You can buy a complete AR-15 style rifle, (California Compliant and standard configuration), or just the complete upper receiver (with bolt carrier group), which mounts to any AR-15 style lower receiver with zero modifications, from Bishop Ammunition Manufacturing, LLC.

The 458 SOCOM was developed because of the lack of power inherent in the 5.56 NATO cartridge used in the M4 Carbine and the M16 Rifles currently in use in The United States armed forces. Members of the special operations command, Task Force Rangers, experienced dissatisfaction and concern that multiple shots were necessary to neutralize enemy combatants in Mogadishu.

This cartridge is designed to be 100% compatible with M4, M16, and AR-15 rifle platforms. There is no change to the buffer, buffer spring, charging handle, stock, GI Specification magazines, most aftermarket magazines, or the magazine well, trigger assembly or any other components of the lower receiver. The 458 SOCOM singles stacks in 5.56 magazines. A 10 round 5.56 magazine holds four (4) 458 SOCOM rounds. The 20 round magazine holds seven (7) rounds. The 30 round magazine will hold tern (10) rounds of 458 SOCOM.
