Hornady Announces New Hunting Products for 2015

hornady_new_products_2015_fHornady announced its 2015 product offerings this week at the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) show, and three things in particular should catch the eye of the hunting community: Full Boar Ammunition, the company’s own .17 Win. Super Mag. and a new addition to the popular American Whitetail line.

Full Boar Ammunition

Full Boar ammunition will feature GMX bullets for deep penetration and maximum weight retention. The monolithic copper alloy bullets are designed to deliver 95+ percent weight retention and uniform, controlled expansion for unmatched terminal performance on the toughest game. The GMX bullet is California compatible and appropriate for areas that require the use of non-traditional bullets.

17 Win. Super Mag.

Rounding out the Hornady line of high speed rimfire cartridges is the 17 Win. Super Mag. (WSM). Filling the gap between the .17 HMR and the centerfire 17 Hornet, the 17 Win Super Mag fires a 20 grain V-Max bullet at 3,000 fps. Designed to retain over 2,000 fps of velocity at 200 yards, .17 WSM should provide plenty of velocity for the hard-hitting V-Max bullet to perform on varmints at extended range. Learn more about Hornady’s new .17 WSM line with our exclusive video.

12-Gauge American Whitetail Rifled Slug Ammunition

Designed for smooth bore barrels, Hornady American Whitetail Rifled Slugs are loaded with a 1-ounce rifled slug. The hollow point slug features a tough, lead alloy core loaded to 1,600 feet per second. You can learn more about the new smooth bore addition to the American Whitetail line with this video.

The Real Outdoorsman’s Brew

Far too often it is said that the real drink of the American Outdoorsman is beer, whiskey, rum, or some other alcoholic beverage. I will admit that on regular occasions those beverages are packed and consumed during the course of a week or maybe at some point throughout the trip but they are not normally the drink of choice. Any hunter or fisherman that is more concerned about drinking beer or getting drunk instead of actually chasing the fish or game they are pursuing is not a real outdoorsman in my opinion anyway. Just like in the book A River Runs Through It, beer is saved for when the trip is over. Never during and never before. Most hardcore outdoorsman I know stick to that motto firmly and enforce it when they can. There is one drink however that seems to be a staple no matter what fish I am casting for or animal I am hunting. As a matter of fact, if this drink isn’t packed in my backpack or tucked somewhere in a compartment in my boat, everything just falls apart. It’s a drink that is a harbinger of good times and trophy’s to be remembered. If you are thinking of what I am thinking, that drink would of course would be Mountain Dew.

Outdoorsman’s Gold

Outdoorsman’s Gold

On a day to day basis I do not drink any sort of pop, soda, coke, or whatever you prefer to call it form your neck of the woods. Water, coffee, or tea is about as wild as I get. When autumn comes and it’s time to hit the tree stand for early season white tails, a 20 oz Mountain Dew is sloshing in my backpack all the way to the stand. During the mid afternoon break at the local gas station to get some snacks and plan the evening hunt, another Mountain Dew finds will find its way back in my gear bag.

3 Best Broadheads for Whitetails

Having trouble deciding on a broadhead for whitetail deer? Ten experienced bowhunters told us their go-to broadheads, and we compiled the results.

By Adam Heggenstaller

August 28, 2014

Today it seems there are nearly as many broadhead designs as bullet types, and manufacturers introduce dozens of new ones each year. And just like bullets, every hunter has a favorite. With that in mind, I asked 10 bowhunters with an average of 19 years of experience to pick their go-to broadheads for whitetail deer. Surprisingly, there was considerable overlap in the choices. Those three broadheads made the cut below (plus two more based on their record of success in the field). It’s hard to argue with proven performance, but I’m sure you’ll have fun trying.

  1. New Archery Products Thunderhead 100

The three-blade, 100-grain Thunderhead was on the list of five of the hunters I polled, making it the most popular in my less-than-scientific survey. New Archery Products (NAP) says the micro-grooved ferrule increases accuracy, and several hunters who listed the Thunderhead among their favorites confirmed its accurate in-flight performance. Couple accuracy with super-sharp blades that result in a 1 3/16-inch cutting diameter, and you have the recipe for short, heavy bloodtrails. MSRP: $39.99 per 5

thunderhead_best_broadheads_12. Muzzy 100-Grain 3-Blade


Muzzy’s well-known “Bad to the Bone” reputation largely comes from the three-sided, hardened-steel Trocar tip the company puts on its broadheads. It’s designed to blast through bone for deep penetration (important for quartering shots on even lightly built game like whitetails) and mechanically locks the .020-inch-thick blades to the aluminum ferrule. The 100-grain, 3-blade version has a 1 3/16-inch cutting diameter and has been my top broadhead for almost two decades. With a properly-tuned bow, I’ve always found it flies true. Three other hunters in the poll had it on their lists, too, for the same reasons. MSRP: $39.95 per 6


  1. Rage 2-Blade

Some bowhunters are reluctant to try mechanical broadheads, but those who settle on Rage rarely go back to fixed-blade designs. Such was the case with two of the hunters I polled, who trust the company’s SlipCam blade-deployment system and love the broadhead’s field-point-like accuracy. On top of that, the 100-grain, two-blade version offers a wide cutting diameter of more than 2 inches when fully deployed on impact. The only downside seems to be cost. MSRP: $44.99 per 3


Honorable Mention: New Archery Products KillZone 100-Grain

Two-blade mechanical with spring-clip design that doesn’t require O-rings or rubber bands for blade retention in flight. Two-inch cutting diameter; available with a cut-on-contact tip or a pyramid-shaped Trophy Tip. MSRP: $39.99 per 3

Honorable Mention: G5 Outdoors Striker 100-Grain

Three fixed, .030-inch-thick blades offer a 1 1/8-inch cutting diameter and lock inside a solid-steel ferrule for toughness. Edges of triangular-shaped tip align with blades to provide performance similar to cut-on-contact broadheads. MSRP: $42.99 per 3
