Free Ammo Clinic!

Albany Rifle and Pistol Club

29999 Saddle Butte Road, Shedd, OR 97377

10:00 am – 4:00 pm

 

Curious about non-lead ammunition? Would you like to test a variety to see how they shoot? Join us for a free, informative, and hands-on event. Oregon hunters have a strong history of conservation and we hope this event will continue this great tradition.

Bring your own rifle and favorite ammunition

  • See how non-lead ammunition compares to your favorite lead shot in your own rifle
  • Discuss the concerns about lead ammunition – lead bullet fragments can remain in game meat and gut piles, creating a known health hazard for scavenging eagles, wildlife, and possibly for humans.
  • We’ll also test bullet performance by shooting into water barrels and gelatin

Registration is encouraged here. http://tinyurl.com/OregonAmmo
