OfficerStore.com is On Target with Your Ammunition Needs


OfficerStore.com, the leading online source for law enforcement professionals, has taken aim on the tight supplies and long wait-times facing many agencies. With a wide variety of ammunition in-stock from Federal, Hornady, Remington and Force-On-Force OfficerStore.com is prepared to meet the needs of the law enforcement professionals across the country.

COATESVILLE, Pa. - OfficerStore.com knows practice, recertification and daily duty demands dramatically impact ammunition supplies of law enforcement agencies across the country. Strategic response to the situation has allowed OfficerStore.com to take aim on tight supplies and long wait times. With a wide variety of ammunition in-stock from Federal, Hornady, Remington and Force-On-Force OfficerStore.com is prepared to meet your ammunition.

Federal Premium Law Enforcement Ammunition
You put it all on the line every time you put on your badge. Expect nothing less from your ammunition. Federal Premium provides the top quality products you need to have full confidence in any situation. That's why OfficerStore.com offers several different duty loads in all the calibers you use.

Tactical HST: Tactical HST is the newest addition to Federal Ammunition offering consistent expansion and optimum penetration for terminal performance. Available in a bonded and non-bonded version, HST offers one of the best values in Premium Duty ammo available.

Tactical Hydra-Shok: These loads remain a popular choice for accuracy and overall ballistic performance. The notched copper jacket controls penetration and a unique center-post hollow-point design provides controlled expansion and efficient energy transfer for incredible performance.  This bonded round is a good choice for officers looking for consistent performance when shooting through intermediate barriers.

American Eagle: An affordable option for the range, designed for the high volume shooter with Full Metal Jacket bullets and top quality components. At OfficerStore.com you will find the most popular law enforcement calibers known for their accuracy, reliability, and proven performance on the street. 

Hornady Tactical Application Police (TAP) Ammunition
223 Rem TAP: These loads are a unique offering to Law Enforcement professionals, combining reliable functioning with consistent performance, low muzzle signature, and exceptional accuracy in 40, 55, 60 and 62 grain bullets and a 75 grain offering match accuracy. These rounds provide enhanced terminal performance through rapid expansion and complete bullet fragmentation. Yet these highly effective bullets will penetrate soft body armor making them an excellent choice for patrol rifle programs and SWAT teams.

5.56 NATO: Many rifles chambered in 5.56 NATO are not realizing their full potential because they are shooting 223 Rem ammo. To get all the performance your 5.56 NATO can deliver, you need a Hornady high octane 5.56 NATO load. Your 5.56 NATO chambered rifle was designed to take advantage of the higher pressure of the 5.56 NATO cartridge - which translates to higher velocity, higher energy and harder-hitting performance.

Combined, the longer throat area or free bore along with a higher maximum chamber pressure of the 5.56 NATO cartridge allow for higher propellant charges; greatly increasing velocity for superior downrange performance. Firing 223 Remington ammunition in a 5.56 NATO chamber creates a reduction in pressure, sacrificing velocity.

308 Win TAP: Ammunition specifically developed for the police marksman who requires the increased bullet weight and barrier penetration of the 308 Win cartridge. Hornady Match Grade TAP 308 Win loads offer reliable functioning and consistent performance that delivers when it counts. With a low muzzle signature and superior terminal performance, these loads provide a low risk of over-penetration due to enhanced expansion characteristics after target engagement. The polymer tips have high ballistic coefficients, making them an excellent choice for SWAT precision marksmen.

Remington Ammunition
Golden Sabre HPJ (High Performance Jacket): The streets have never been tougher. Your job has never been more demanding or more dangerous. That's why OfficerStore.com carries the ultimate in handgun ammunition from Remington.

At the heart of Golden Saber HPJ is a high-performance hollow point bullet with a jacket made entirely of cartridge brass that releases energy over a longer distance. And, unlike conventional hollow point bullets, the jacket is nose cut completely through, promoting controlled expansion to well over 1.5 times the bullet's original diameter. The nose cuts, configured in a new, patented spiral pattern, produce larger petals and reduce the nose cavity for optimized performance.

In addition, all Golden Saber HPJ also features Remington’s industry-exclusive Driving Band. It locks the lead core to the jacket and reduces rifling contact friction for optimum muzzle velocity. Reduced bullet nose diameter allows for precise bore alignment, producing match-grade accuracy not usually found with hollow point ammunition.

Designed to meet U.S. federal law enforcement standards, Golden Saber HPJ is the high performance ammunition you've been waiting for. Available in .380, 9mm, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP, it's ready to meet your toughest real-world evaluation.

Force-On-Force
The Enhanced Force on Force rounds are state-of-the-art. The marker rounds boast superior performance, distinct marking and reliable ballistics. These loads are designed to be shot at soft tissue for the ultimate in realism, and these rounds incur a pain penalty. Unlike other products on the market, these rounds are lead-free and thus safer for indoor use, environmentally friendly and prevent lead contamination and expensive cleanup. By eliminating the use of powder as a propellant the mess is reduced and there is significantly less barrel fouling. Since the marking agent never dries, making clothes washing and clean up effortless. Extended shelf life requires no special packaging and allows for bulk purchases that save your agency critical funding.
