OTOA Advanced Training Courses

Hornady Ballistics Workshop

Hornady Ballistics Workshop
Ballistics Workshop by Ron Chess from Hornady
*FREE & restricted to 2018 OTOA Conference attendees ONLY
June 5, 2018
This course is certified as specialized firearms training and serves as a comprehensive review of the changes in performance regarding Law Enforcement ammunition, training, and firearms platforms throughout the last 30+ years. This course is designed around my personal experiences serving as a Tactical Firearms and SWAT Instructor at the National Training Center. We will be conducting a full demonstration on all of the Hornady Law Enforcement/Military Ammunition lines including Handgun, Rifle, Carbine, and Shotgun, as well as your duty ammunition in a side-by-side comparison via the FBI Protocol. Throughout this course, we will be looking at the liabilities of over-penetration, under-penetration, not to mention shot to shot consistency, penetration, and expansion. This course also provides insight into the problems that bonded ammunition faces in performance during the FBI protocol - such as why pure lead (used in bonded bullets) does not penetrate gelatin well when shot through auto glass, as well as how twist rates and barrel lengths affect ammunition performance and bullet stabilization. It is recommended that students bring a box of their current ammunition to utilize during the FBI Protocol testing procedure.
This special offer training event will take place during the 2018 OTOA Conference on June 5, 2018. 
Bus to the training site leaves outside of door "A" at the Kalahari Convention Center at 1330hrs.
