AWSA Quick Tip

"There are 3 items to check when buying ammo for your gun if it’s new to you.

First, look on the barrel of your gun for the stamped type and size of caliber. For example; you just purchased a Smith & Wesson .357.  It will say .357 on the barrel of the gun.

Next, look at a box of ammo and should also say .357.

The last check would be to open the box, take out one round and look at the bottom, also called the headstamp, and you will see .357 stamped."
