Hornady Unveils New Ammuntion Products


Hornady is once again on the cutting edge of ammunition development and are unveiling some new offerings specifically designed for hog hunting and smoothbore shotgun deer hunters.

Hornady’s new American Whitetail slug will turn your smoothbore 86234-american-whitetail-slug-cutoutshotgun into a deer hunting machine! The renowned ammo manufacturer has spent a great deal of time and research into designing and perfecting an accurate and deadly slug for shotgun hunters.

The new American Whitetail Rifled Slugs are a 1-ounce hollow point style featuring a lead alloy core and a compression style wad that protects the slug at ignition and helps seal the bore for maximum velocity. Slugs are loaded to 1,600 feet per second.

The Hornady Full Boar Rifle ammunition is designed for deep penetration and weight retention when going after the toughest game. The Full Boar loads feature monolithic copper alloy bullets for Full-Boar-pkgcontrolled expansion and 95%+ weight retention.

The new Full Boar ammo is available in calibers from .223 Rem. to .300 Win. Mag and is designed to work flawlessly in all guns, including ARs and other semi-autos.
