Hornady has introduced an all new line called the American Whitetail. Its red-and-and-blue packaging is easy to spot and the company is loading some of the most proven cartridge/bullet weight combinations for hunters inside. Cartridges include .243 Win. (100-grain bullet), .25-’06 Rem. (117 grain), .270 Win. (130 grain), 7 mm-08 Rem. (139 grain), 7 Rem. Mag. (139 grain), .30-30 Win. (150 grain), .308 Win. (150 grain), .30-’06 Sprg. (150 grain) and .300 Win. Mag. (150 grain). All are loaded with the company’s time-tested InterLock bullets. Those who carry will be glad to know Hornady also introduced Critical Duty loads for new chamberings. Often leave your .32 NAA at home because you’re worried about the bullet’s terminal performance? Hornady now has you covered with an 80-grain FTX bullet that comes from the muzzle at 1,000 fps. Also added to the Critical Duty line was .32 H&R Mag. (80-grain bullet), a special pink-tipped .38 Spl. LITE load (90-grain FTX bullet at 1,200 fps, and part of the proceeds from each sale are being donated to breast cancer research), and my personal favorite, a .410 Critical Duty 2 1/2-inch shotshell. It begins with the proven performance of Hornady’s FTX bullet (.41-caliber), but behind it a pair of .35-caliber, high-antimony lead round balls nearly ensure fight-stopping performance at close range. All loads in the Critical Duty line employ the company’s proven Flex Tip technology.
