All professional shooters, have for years recognized the need for reduction of toxins (such as lead, and other heavy metals such as copper) on the firing line, but have struggled to find suitable alternatives with reliable ballistic performance with a ‘feel” that is similar to that of traditional operational ammunition. That is until now!
Ascendance International once again serves as the vanguard as we will introduce two completely new lines of precision ammunition. These revolutionary new ammunition lines, soon to be released under the Dark Horse banner, are the culmination of years of research and development merging science, technology, and true innovation to indeed build a better bullet. This new line of Dark Horse ammunition is the evolution beyond the status quo that negates the known health and environmental hazards associated lead, copper, and heavy metals toxin exposures, while delivering exceptional ballistic performance. They are;
Dark Horse Precision Frangible: Considered a training round, this ammunition delivers match grade accuracy and near match ballistic performance of comparable traditional ammunition that reduces negative habit transfer during training. Its highly frangible characteristics make it the perfect solution for both range safety and steel shooting applications. But it is how it reacts differently to target material encountered that will have you switching out your old home defense loads. All while virtually eliminating known toxin hazards associated with lead and copper training ammunition. At an economical price.
Dark Horse Lead Replacement Ammunition: This ammunition is for anyone seeking highly accurate solution alternatives to traditional bullets. Built on performance, our lead free, copper free projectiles offer low toxin hazard and environmentally safe shooting solutions. They provide superb accuracy, dependable terminal performance, reliable penetration, high mass retention, and excellent structural integrity while punching through barriers, yet still deliver exceptional soft tissue performance. Perfect for use in all pistols, SBRs, carbines, and rifles, to include suppressed weapons.
The Ascendance Team utilizes the latest manufacturing techniques and highest quality materials to build these unique projectiles, and then matches them with the highest quality components from across the shooting industry. Before it is certified to be manufacturing ready, every bullet caliber is put through an extensive test and evaluation program to ensure it meets the rigid Dark Horse performance criteria. Stringent quality control measures are strictly enforced at every stage of the manufacturing process. And before going to market, every ammunition lot is once again tested to ensure that it is worthy of wearing the Dark Horse label.
