Save the Date: 2024 SAAMI Ballistics Conference

SAAMI Ballistics Conference September 10-12, 2024

A 2-Day Technical Seminar and Training Course plus a range day for product demonstrations or a visit to a local manufacturer.

Presented by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc.
Hosted by Barnes Bullets.

OVERVIEW: 2024 will be the fifth biennial SAAMI Ballistics Conference. The purpose of the Conference is to serve as a training workshop and discussion forum addressing a broad range of topics relevant to small arms ammunition ballistic laboratory/test facility operations, methods, and equipment.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? The SAAMI Ballistics Conference will be of special interest to small arms ballistic laboratory technicians, ammunition and firearm test engineers, and test facility managers, civilian, law enforcement, and military who utilize the SAAMI standards in the manufacture or qualification of ammunition and firearms.

Salt Lake CityABOUT THE WORKSHOP: The SAAMI Ballistics Conference will be held Tuesday, September 10 and Wednesday, September 11 in Salt Lake City, UT at the Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel. There will be an optional site visit on Thursday, September 12 to a local range to demonstrate long-range radar tracking equipment or to a local manufacturer (to be finalized).

In an effort to keep the content of this event pertinent to the industry and testing community, SAAMI is looking to include new topics for the 2024 event. Topics planned for the 2024 conference include:

  • PCB Ballistic Pressure Sensor User’s Training and Practical Workshop.
  • Short and long-range radar system applications for projectile trajectory analysis.
  • Long range ballistics measurement considerations.
  • Legal considerations of test recordkeeping to mitigate product liability risk.
  • In-process and final product measurements and data acquisition systems.

More information and a final, complete itinerary to follow.
