Technological innovation has been the driver of the American experience—and the American firearm industry—since the days of the frontier longrifle. And even with the usual—and, increasingly, not-so-usual—stresses bearing down on our society today, it continues to result in products that stand as examples of hope that the American spirit is alive and well.
Can a rifle lacking a breechplug really be a muzzleloader? Though some interested parties—including the federal government—say “no,” today’s blackpowder hunters are tuning into news about Traditions’ NitroFire rifle and Federal’s innovative FireStick propulsion system.
The Traditions Firearms NitroFire inline Muzzleloader series provides hunters with a package ready for use and reloads made easy with Federal Ammunition FireStick cartridges.
After centuries of existence, it doesn't seem like there's much room for innovation in the muzzleloader world. However, Traditions and Federal Premium did it in 2020 with the all-new NitroFire.
Traditions and Federal Premium worked together on a revolutionary new muzzleloading system that advances a centuries-old design.
The result of a collaborative effort between Federal Premium, Hodgdon Powder Company and Traditions Firearms, is a new .50-cal. muzzleloader with a unique priming system.
