Hundreds of wildcat cartridges have come and gone through the years—some with ridiculous names and others with little ballistic benefit over factory offerings. But a few have offered real advantages and gone mainstream. Here, a veteran handloader reminisces about some of his favorites.
SHOT Show remains months away—and the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers show still weeks out—but that hasn't stopped Winchester from showing off what's sure to be one of its hottest new wares in 2015: Deer Season XP.
Every Thursday we'll share an article from the American Rifleman archives. In this week's article, originally posted here in Sept. 2010 and now seemingly more timely than ever, we look at why the most popular round in the world is more difficult to manufacture than most realize.
Winchester Ammunition has launched WinchesterTV.com, its new, online destination site with more than 175 television episodes featuring dynamic hunts and adventures captured on film during the past decade.

I grew up reading Jack O'Connor and his tails of the .270. When I got mine in 1960, I mulled over the 30/06, but settled on the .270. I enjoyed shooting crows and woodchucks and the lighter bullets and reloading opportunities were greater in my opinion. Also, the 150 gr. partition was more than suitable for bigger game. I have taken Mtn. goat, elk, black bear and numerous deer over the years. BUT, I will admit while with the USFS in Montana, I was only going to take a grizzley on my terms, unless in a strictly self defense situation.

John Thomas, thanks for your service...but you never heard of Dave Campbell? Really? You don't read magazines much huh? As far as the .375 H&H goes, if you reload and I do, you can load 210/235 gr. barnes X bullets and use it for anything. It's been around a long long time because it works.
