12 Deer Cartridges You’ve Probably Never Hunted With

Here’s a look at a dozen deer cartridges you more than likely haven’t hunted with, but your grandfather (or great grandfather) loved.

Behind the Bullet: .30-30 Winchester

The .30-30 Winchester remains a top-seller, and new rifles are continually produced for the veteran cartridge. Why? It’s a simple design, easy on the shoulder and wallet, and very effective inside of 200 yards.

Hardware: Konus KonusPro M-30 1X-6X-24mm

Whether mounted on an AR, a lever gun or a single-shot, the KonusPro M-30 1x-6x-24mm is a handy scope for up-close encounters. Some of its features—such as a 30mm main tube and a well-designed reticle with dual-color illumination—may come as a surprise, considering its relatively low MSRP of less than $360.

Review: Traditions Outfitter G2

Accurate, reliable and comfortable to shoot, the new Outfitter G2 break-action single-shot cartridge rifle from Traditions is just pure fun at a budget-friendly price.

When the Hunting Was Bad

PH Pete Swanepoel set out to Zambia on a mission to hunt with a one-of-a-kind Livingstone-Henry rifle prior to donating it to the Livingstone Museum, but a series of unfortunate events made neither possible.

Hardware: Traditions Crackshot

Traditions Performance Firearms’ Crackshot rimfire is well designed, well put together and durable as a digging bar—all for the price of three tanks of diesel.

.35 Whelen: The Colonel’s Cartridge

Cartridges that start with “.35” have never really caught on in America, but one stamped “Whelen” is enjoying a resurgence in popularity among hunters.

200 Years of Remington

America’s oldest gunmaker celebrates its 200th Birthday.

An Ode to the Ruger Mini-14

Designed with a rotary bolt, based loosely on the military M14 design, with a gas piston based on the M1 Garand, the Ruger Mini-14 was made to be reliable. And, reliable it is.
