Lanes of new and interesting guns and ammo were on display at the 2022 SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range in Nevada on Monday.

Billed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation as the “largest, most influential one-day event in the hunting and shooting sports,” over 1,700 members of the media and firearm buyers swarmed the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club the day before SHOT Show got underway to check out the latest wares from over 200 manufacturers across the firearms industry.

5.56 Maxim Frangible
Maxim is also increasingly moving into the ammo field, and was showing off its new frangible 5.56, which we understand is safe on indoor ranges, with users running it off steel at just a few feet away. (Photo: Chris Eger/
