Traditions NitroFire & Federal Premium FireStick

DR Power snow blower

Traditions NitroFire is the first muzzleloader designed for the revolutionary new Federal Premium FireStick ignition system. The sealed polymer FireStick contains a charge of clean-burning Hodgdon Triple Eight propellant that has been measured and loaded with the same tight tolerances as Federal Premium factory ammunition, ensuring ignition in any weather with unmatched shot-to-shot consistency and accuracy. The projectile (Smackdown Carnivore bullet in Ridgeback sabot recommended) is loaded the traditional way down the muzzle with a ramrod. Then the shooter opens the NitroFire break-action, inserts a FireStick, a 209 primer in the FireStick, and closes the action. That’s it. The gun is ready to fire, and if it isn’t fired, the charge can be unloaded by simply opening the action and pulling out the FireStick. The bullet can be unloaded by attaching a special jag to the ramrod, inserting it through the empty breech, and pushing the bullet back out the muzzle. The new Hodgdon Triple Eight leaves almost no unburned powder or residue behind, and since the powder is contained in the FireStick, none of it burns directly inside the barrel. The bullet seats on a shelf, not on top of the powder. All of this reduces powder-ring buildup, makes cleaning easier and reduces corrosion. The .50 Traditions NitroFire is a state-of-the-art muzzleloader in its own right with 26-inch 1:28 twist Ultralight Chromoly steel barrel tapered and fluted for optimal weight balance. Elite XT™ trigger system features rebounding hammer, captive half-cock, and a manual Dual Safety that allows the action to be opened with a cross-bolt safety still engaged for truly safe loading, unloading, or just to check the chamber. MSRP for a 10-pack of 100-grain or 120-grain FireSticks $26.99. NitroFire rifle starts at $549.

Black Hills HoneyBadger .357 Magnum delivers a monolithic 127-grain CNC-machined solid copper bullet designed and tuned for optimum performance from either a 6-inch revolver barrel at 1,365 feet a second or an 18-inch carbine barrel at 1,900 ft/s. Patented “standoff” nose design makes the cartridge safe in tubular lever-gun magazines. There is no chance of fragmentation with the solid-copper bullet, even at the higher carbine velocity where the round penetrates 24 inches in ballistic gel with a 6-inch-diameter cavity. Revolver-fired rounds penetrate 18 inches with a 4.5-inch cavity. And the bullet does not need to expand to produce that terminal effect. Flutes precision-machined in the bullet cut and “grab” as it passes though, accelerating radial tissue damage. The bottom line is soft tissue damage equal to or greater than a conventional expanding bullet with superior penetration through bone and other tough tissue. MSRP for 50-count box $79.
