The Little Gun That Could: 20-Gauge Mossberg FLEX 500

Just how much gun do you need to take down a black bear? Probably not as much as you might think—so long as you know what you're doing.

Hardware: Hornady Custom Lite

Newton’s third law of motion pronounces that to every action there is always opposed an equal reaction. This basic law of physics applies to rifles. The reaction to the bullet speeding down the barrel is recoil pushing against your shoulder. The more recoil you experience, the more likely you are to flinch. Hornady’s new Custom Lite ammunition is designed to reduce the likelihood of that flinch—or possibly even eliminate it.

Shoot more comfortably with these reduced-recoil loads from four ammo makers.
