Frangible .308 Breaching Ammo from Dark Horse – SHOT Show 2018

It is common practice for tactical teams to carry shotguns for breaching. Though effective, shotguns make it mandatory for the end user to transition back to a rifle and can add weight and clutter to one’s loadout.

What if tactical teams could breach doors with a common battle rifle? Enter Dark Horse Ammunition from Ascendence International.

Dark Horse Ammunition has developed a 242 grain frangible .308 Winchester round that is optimal for breaching. Not only is the round good at shooting through locks and hinges, but it will also hold 1 to 1.5 MOA at 100 yards. Since the round is 242 grains, Ascendence recommends a 1:8 twist barrel.

Breaching with a rifle has a lot of advantages. Not only can an end user breach with their primary weapon, but they will also have a near full magazine after entry has been attained. A .308 Winchester battle rifle is a very accurate weapon and can also produce devastating wounds on enemy combatants. The representatives from Ascendance stated that with their round you could, “Fight to the target, into the target, through the target, and hit them running away.”
