Traditions NitroFire Muzzleloader
The NitroFire is the first and best muzzleloader on the market that uses the revolutionary Federal Premium Firestick system, which uses an encapsulated propellant charge that loads from the breech, with the bullet loaded from the muzzle. The charge is completely impervious to moisture and loaded with clean-burning Hodgdon Triple Eight powder to the same tight tolerances as Federal Premium factory ammunition, ensuring shot-to-shot consistency and accuracy muzzleloaders have never experienced. FireStick unloads quickly, simply, and safely by slipping out of the action — there’s no need to fire the rifle. The award-winning NitroFire also features a 1:24” VAPR Twist barrel. The faster twist helps to stabilize bullets better, increase accuracy, and expands the bullet options that can be used.
Springfield Armory Waypoint Rifle
Precision manufactured in the USA, each detachable-magazine-fed Model 2020 Waypoint Rifle is built to deliver the accuracy and performance expected from a custom-grade rifle. The Model 2020 Waypoint features a premium hand-painted carbon fiber stock and the option of a steel or carbon fiber barrel with an impressive .75 MOA accuracy guarantee. The rifle’s action is its foundation, featuring dual locking lugs on a fluted bolt that runs smoothly down EDM raceways for perfect, repeatable engagement, while an optimized extraction cam provides robust, reliable extraction in any condition. Additionally, the bolt features dual cocking cams for ease of operation and toolless disassembly for maintenance. It’s available in four great calibers to choose from; 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, and 308 Winchester.
Franchi Momentum Rifle:
The feature-rich Momentum represents the cutting edge of hunting rifle technology and performance. Ergonomic, light, and fast handling, its accuracy-enhancing, free-floating, the cold hammer-forged barrel is threaded to accept a muzzle brake or suppressor (not included). Each rifle is test-fired to ensure MOA accuracy with premium factory ammunition. The bolt has a short 60-degree throw for fast cycling. A TSA recoil pad reduces felt recoil by up to 50 percent. The single-stage trigger adjusts 2 to 4 lbs. A hinged floor plate magazine and pre-drilled bipod mount are standard as well. Momentum takes the same scope bases as the Remington model 700 (two-piece bases only).
Federal Fusion Ammo
Made specifically for deer hunting, Federal Premium Fusion Rifle Ammo is where molecular science meets ballistics. Years in the making, Fusion bonds the copper jacket to the lead core at the molecular level to totally eliminate component separation. The result is superior downrange transfer of terminal energy and outstanding bullet weight retention. The optimized boattail profile ensures excellent flight characteristics and accuracy. A skived tip provides lethal long-range expansion potential without minimizing short-range tenacity. Made specifically for deer hunting, Federal Premium Fusion Rifle Ammo also delivers exceptional performance on antelope and other thin-skinned game.
Hornady Precision Hunter Ammo
Accuracy and terminal performance are the cornerstones of Hornady Precision Hunter factory-loaded ammunition. Great care has been given by Hornady engineers to develop superior, match-accurate hunting loads that allow the ELD-X bullet to achieve its maximum ballistic potential. The propellants used are clean burning and loaded to uniform capacity for consistent shot-to-shot results regardless of temperature. This attention to detail provides the highest levels of accuracy and performance uniformity for the most demanding and diverse hunting situations. Verified by Doppler radar, the Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to maintain the highest-in-class BC over its entire trajectory.
