Breakthrough Clean Technologies
To keep firearms running smoothly, Breakthrough Clean’s biosynthetic All-In-One (CLP) provides two-in-one cleaning and lubrication; removes carbon fouling, oil and grime; penetrates deep to provide protection from rust and corrosion and minimizes friction and wear from metal-to-metal contact.

As early as the Case brothers began making knives in upstate New York during the late 19th century, they were also methodically scrawling symbolic stamp designs into their blades. In 1970 the company began stamping blades with a “dot-dating” tang design that would span a finite decade of manufacturing. The annual removal of one of ten dots from the blade presses signaled the start of a new production year that collectors could recognize as new knives were released to dealer displays. The launch of a new decade brings a new tang stamp design: the “CASE XX” marking.

The Hydra-Shok Deep .380 Auto is the first expanding .380 Auto load to consistently penetrate beyond the FBI-recommended 12-inch minimum. Like all Hydra-Shok Deep loads, its bullet’s robust center post and core design ensure that it penetrates to critical depths through common self-defense barriers, without over-penetrating.
Force X2 from Federal Premium contains nine copper-plated 00 FX2 buckshot pellets that are specially engineered to split into two equal-size pieces on impact. This doubles the number of wound channels from nine to 18, improves the transfer of energy from the payload to the target and minimizes the potential for over-penetration, reducing the risk to bystanders. Force X2 is also loaded for more manageable recoil, allowing the shooter to stay on target for faster follow-ups and better accuracy in a self-defense situation.

For quick-change reloading press convenience, Breech Lock Update Kits are available in 1.25″-12 and 1.5″-12.
