Americase Debuts Breakdown Crossbow Case

americaseWickedRidge1huntforever061714Traveling to hunting camp or the range to sight in your crossbow can be difficult without the right case. Soft cases don’t provide a lot of protection, and many hard cases can be oversized and clumsy. That was a major cue for Americase to design and manufacture a breakdown crossbow case that provides a new level of functionality and security.

“We discovered during our research that most of today’s crossbows are breakdown models so we went to the drawing board and came americaseWickedRidgeClosedHUntforever061714up with a crossbow case that is less than 62 linear inches, so it can be checked luggage on most airlines without having to pay an oversize fee,” said Mars Freudenberg, Sporting Case Sales Manager at Americase. The EC Series is a rugged welded aluminum case that features a lift out panel that holds the bow and foot stirrup and a lower compartment that contains the stock, quiver with bolts and storage for additional items such as spare strings etc. The case also features a spring loaded handle, heavy duty key locking flip latches and a water and dust resistant seal.

Hard-To-Find Brass Is Back

In addition to African game cases, Captech International has other unique, obsolete and hard-to-find cases.

If you have a rifle in an obscure African game caliber and can’t find ammunition, there may be hope in finding new brass that can be handloaded. Brass cartridge case manufacturer Jamison International has been reconstituted as a Division of Captech International. This high quality manufacturer of unique, obsolete and hard to find brass cartridge cases, as well as military, hunting and African game calibers, has moved its operations to new facilities totaling 31,000 square feet in Rapid City, South Dakota. Marc Jamison oversees operational control assuring the stringent quality standards of the past will remain intact moving forward. The new facility also offers ample room for an ongoing program of expansion and machine refurbishment to reduce the cycles between production runs of many hard-to-find cartridge cases.

The company is now accepting orders on all of the previously produced calibers as well as their basic brass line for forming. This is an exciting time for handloaders who have been without access to many of the cartridge cases that have been difficult or impossible to find. “Many unique cases are currently available in stock and more are in production each week,” said a company spokesperson.
