If you are an NRA Certified Instructor in any of the firearm disciplines—pistol, rifle or shotgun—you will no doubt welcome this free educational resource material being offered by Winchester Ammunition. Just launched, “Introduction to Ammunition—Ammo 101” is a four-part series that includes custom illustrations and information in each of the disciplines. Imagine how useful this illustrative teaching tool will be!

“The basics of ammunition, that is what we want to deliver with the Ammo 101 series,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing. “With millions of people across the United States starting their journey in the shooting sports as new firearm owners, providing easy-to-understand information on ammunition types is one way we can help educate our customers.”

The Ammo 101 series provides a basic overview of shotshell, center-fire rifle, center-fire pistol, and rimfire ammunition, showcasing ammunition construction, components, calibers and common usage.

The Ammo 101 resource is free to download and is especially valuable for the thousands of shooting ranges and instructors nationwide who are introducing new entrants to the shooting sports and hunting. It is available as a free download at Winchesters.mediaassets.com (click on "Sell Sheets").

Instructors can incorporate this into their training presentations, use as a handout or have it printed locally. For custom posters, metal signage, or questions on printing and sizing, Winchester does offer a printing resource available through REPCO Solutions.
