Federal Premium has announced the arrival of its new Edge TLR product line, a dedicated series of long-range hunting ammunition. Using a polymer-tipped, boat tail bullet, with a small lead core at the front, the TLR bullet has shown to give consistent expansion at distances out to 900 yards, and while that is an extreme distance for a hunting bullet, it’s nice to know that even at lower velocities you’ll get good performance.
While there is a lot of overlap in the .30-caliber cartridge lineup, and many great choices available, you’d be hard-pressed to find a cartridge with a better blend of powder efficiency, low recoil, quick cycling and striking power than the .308 Winchester.
In the last 10 years, ammunition manufacturers have delivered newly designed cartridges that are more consistent, more efficient and more precise than ever before. Will the century-plus-old .30-06 Springfield have to gracefully hand the “most popular” position to a new leader?
What is it that makes a cartridge ideal for your hunting scenario? Perhaps it is ammo availability, or the individual connection with a particular cartridge. We take a closer look at the pros and cons of common and obscure loads.
The all-new .350 Legend is designed specifically for hunters to deliver massive downrange energy transfer with improved penetration from a modern straight-walled cartridge, and boasts more muzzle energy than the .30-30 Win., .300 BLK and .223 Rem.
