H2H 6.5 PRC Vs 6.8 Western Lead

Head to Head: 6.5 PRC vs. 6.8 Western

Between the 6.5 PRC and 6.8 Western, which is the better choice for the hunter? Contributor Philip Massaro examines the pros and cons of each.

Behind the Bullet: .17 Winchester Super Magnum

If velocity is your thing, and you want the speediest rimfire cartridge currently available, look no further than the .17 WSM.

First Look: Hornady 22 ARC

Engineered to use modern, high-BC bullets, the new 22 ARC is designed for optimum performance in the AR-15 platform, but is equally at home in a bolt-action rifle.

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.
