Editors’ Picks 2018: Browning BXC Ammunition

posted on April 24, 2018

Browning Ammunition notched a win with an NRA Golden Bullseye last year—the best ammunition line launch I’ve seen—and now it is expanding its offerings for hunters with the BXC Controlled Expansion series. Designed for deep penetration in big game, such as elk, bear and moose, the BXC has a thick jacket bonded to a lead core in heavy-for-caliber bullets. Topping the bullet is an anodized aluminum Terminal Tip—that’s not melting on its way downrange. Initial offerings are: 135 gr., 6.5 mm Creedmoor; 145 gr., .270 Win.; 145 gr., .270 WSM; 155 gr., 7 mm Rem. Mag.; 168 gr., .308 Win.; 185 gr., .30-’06 Sprg.; 185 gr., .300 WSM; and 185 gr., .300 Win.
