Men of the AMU: Where Are They Now?

It’s known as “the Home of Champions,” thanks to President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his vision behind the creation of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) in 1956, housed at Fort Benning, Georgia.

SFC Sanderson is no stranger to the winners podium, racking up the wins with the USMC for eight years, before joining the Army Reserve. Not only did SFC Sanderson literally write the book on pistol marksmanship fundamentals, he won an unprecedented three medals (gold, silver, and bronze) at three World Cups in 2009.

Women of the AMU

Whereas many might think of the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) in terms of the world’s toughest men, it also trains steely-eyed women champions.

All About Primers with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit

The effects of different primers on ammunition accuracy is a topic that interests many, but which relatively few can easily test with precision. Most competitive shooters are limited in their access to a 1000-yard range and a quality accuracy-testing facility. Thus, experimentation with primers is often done at shorter ranges, relying heavily on chronograph results to help select primer brands or lots by velocity uniformity and accuracy testing.
