SAAMI Setting the Standards

It is a typical Saturday morning at your local gun club, and along with the large gathering of shooters, are shotguns and ammunition from just about every conceivable manufacturer. Today the shooters will give little, if any, thought as to whether the ammunition they have purchased will fit and fire safely in their favorite shotgun. For that, they can thank the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, the industry-sponsored institute commonly known as SAAMI.
