BTB 350 Legend Lead

Behind the Bullet: 350 Legend

The 350 Legend is designed specifically for hunters to deliver massive downrange energy transfer with improved penetration from a modern straight-walled cartridge.

Head to Head: 7mm PRC vs. 300 PRC

There’s no doubt that Hornady’s Precision Rifle Cartridge family has caught on well, and both the 7mm and 300 PRC are solid all-around choices for hunting. Which comes out on top? We take a closer look at the pros and cons of each.

Behind the Bullet: .303 British

The .303 British has a deeply rooted history in the era of exploration and is tied to the adventurers and hunters who headed to the wilds.

Head to Head: 6.5 PRC vs. .308 Winchester

We put two short-action gems up against one another: the .308 Winchester, a time-proven veteran with 70-plus years of hunting experience, and the 6.5 PRC, a relative newcomer that is quickly gaining favor in the hunting fields and target range.

Behind the Bullet: 26 Nosler

The first of the Nosler proprietary cartridges, the 26 Nosler remains a flat-shooting, hard-hitting choice for hunting open country. Being a 6.5mm cartridge, it will use the high ballistic coefficient projectiles which retain their energy downrange, resist the effects of a crosswind and offer a flat trajectory.

Head to Head: 350 Legend vs. 360 Buckhammer

Both the 350 Legend and 360 Buckhammer adhere to the parameters set by the straight-wall-only states, and both can be highly effective in the deer woods—much more than the vast majority of shotguns with slugs. Here's a look at the pros and cons of each.

Behind the Bullet: 6mm Remington

Introduced in 1955, the 6mm Remington was designed to be a dual-purpose cartridge that could handle varmints and predators just as well as it could deer and similar-sized game.

Head to Head: 6.5 Creedmoor vs. 6.5x55 Swedish

Why would the Creedmoor gain acceptance, when we had such a similar level of performance in a cartridge released at the end of the 19th century? Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each.

Behind the Bullet: .270 Winchester Short Magnum

Loosely based on a shortened .404 Jeffery case with the rim rebated to the .535-inch case head of the H&H family, the .270 WSM was the third commercial cartridge using the .277-inch bore diameter, and betters the velocity of the .270 Winchester by 200 to 250 fps.

SAAMI Announces Acceptance of Two New Cartridges

SAAMI has announced the acceptance of a new shotshell and rimfire cartridge for standardization: three-inch 28-gauge and .21 Sharp.
