AllOutdoor’s 12 Days of Christmas Day 12: Hunting Ammunition

Hunting ammunition can come in a lot of forms. While our grandfathers and maybe even our dads had to settle with using soft point or pure lead projectiles for taking down game, today we have a lot more options when it comes to hunting ammunition. Ammunition like controlled-fracturing hollow points, extremely-dense hard cast bullets, and high-performance hollow points can make a huge difference in how fast the animal you just shot will go down. Having solid shot placement is always key, but your ammunition could also save you from needlessly just wounding an animal or worse, having it run off to bleed out and never be found. Today, for the last day of our 12 days of Christmas, we’ll take a look at some of the best hunting ammunition you can pick up for your next trip out to the deer blind.

Federal Non-Typical Whitetail, .450 Bushmaster

Federal® Non-Typical Whitetail Ammo uses an optimized hollow point bullet with a concentric jacket to provide tag-punching accuracy and consistent, lethal wound channels on any deer. The 450 Bushmaster is also a popular hunting cartridge for hogs due to its heavy bullet weight capable of punching through their thick hides.

Winchester Varmint X Rifle Ammunition .223 Rem

The Winchester Varmint X Rifle Ammunition is highly recommended for determined varmint hunters, as this ammunition works best for long-range shooting. Unlike other ammunition, Winchester Varmint X Rifle Ammunition creates a fatal blow to the target. This ammo is created with a polymer coating at the tip to enhance shooting accuracy. This promotes the tip to point precisely on target, providing a clearer shot overall. The bullet automatically disintegrates as it reaches the target’s body surface, giving varmints and related predators a fatal blasting effect.
