Default BLOG: Ammo To Go

From Matt's blog:

Quote:
I'm just headed back from Texas. I've been down with Texas Trophy Hunters filming a commercial for a new sponsor called Ammo To Go. This is an ammunition company where you order off of the internet and it will be shipped directly to your door. The shoot was a lot of fun as I generally have a good time with all the TTHA folk. Here is a picture that was snapped during some of the filming:


A couple of weekends ago I went over to the Arnold Classic and sat at the Lone Star Distribution booth. The Arnold Classic was very busy, I sat for 4 hours on Friday and another 4 hours on Saturday for Lone Star and I never saw the end of the line. The good thing about going to a place like that is that you get to see a lot of "pretty" people. Male or female you could just tell that people took good care of themselves and I'm a fan of people being healthy.

Sharon is a lady from Lone Star that I dealt with, she also does some writing and wrote this up. I found it a pretty interesting article so I wanted to post it.

Matt Hughes: Raw. Determined. Real.

I had a great time with Lone Star and actually with all of the people at the Arnold. A 4-hour signing can be pretty brutal, but all in all I met some great people and I had a lot of fun.

My boy Joey and I are on this week's show for Trophy Hunters TV on the Outdoor Channel. It airs Wednesday at 7 AM. So, Wednesday morning at 7 AM, Joey and I are always watching TV with a bowl of cereal in front of us. If you get the Outdoor Channel, tune in tomorrow morning or Saturday night.

NORTH TEXAS WHITETAILS
(Airs the week of March 12, 2012)
In this two-part episode, we head to north Texas, where we visit Rio Rojo Rancho in search of trophy whitetails. Then we travel 200 miles west where we find Matt Hughes and son Joey, hunting the elusive feral hog and whitetail.

If Matt’s got a hookup with an ammo distributor, someone should look into producing an MH line of ammo for 308 WIN and 40 SW, hunting and self defense loads with a 170 grain bullet and ‘Slam’ or ‘Dominant’ on the label.

Not that Matt doesn’t have enough projects already, I just have a birthday coming up and this way everyone would know what to get me!

You forgot to mention the highlight of meeting me outside the hotel.

Was very cool to finally meet you Matt.

I’m not sure how I would work the 170 number into a Parabelum or .223 load, but I’m sure it would be awesome!

With the 308 and 40 it’s a perfect fit. Sniper and match loads for the 308 run in the 168-175 grain range, so a 170 would fit right in. It would have enough velocity to get out there and enough weight to hit like bad news. I recently tried some 165 grain plinkers in my 4006 and was very impressed. They seem to shoot a LOT flatter than the 180s for no apparent reason, and have a bit less recoil. I’m sure a 170 would do as well.

I know Matt likes the 308, I don’t know if he has a 40SW but this would give him an excuse to pick one up!
