Behind the Bullet: .375 Ruger

The .375 Ruger is simple, effective, affordable and shootable, and truly mirrors the velocities of the H&H case in a cartridge housed in a standard long action with a beltless, rimless design.

Behind the Bullet: .223 Remington

Undoubtedly one of our nation’s favorite cartridges, the .223 Remington is capable of hair-splitting accuracy in a properly built rifle, has enough velocity for a respectable trajectory, and with the heavier bullets with a higher BC, can resist wind deflection rather well.

Behind the Bullet: .416 Remington Magnum

Introduced in 1989, the .416 Remington Magnum is fully capable of handling any and all game, including the heavyweights like elephant, hippo, buffalo and coastal brown bears.

Based on the classic .404 Jeffery case, the .300 WSM has proven to be wonderfully accurate in a well-tuned rifle, with velocities that can supersede those of the .300 Win. Mag. in factory cartridges.

Behind the Bullet: 28 Nosler

The modern trend in cartridge design is to shun the belted magnum case to avoid the stretching associated with it, and embrace the beltless, rimless designs. If you agree with that sentiment, the 28 Nosler will appeal to you.
