Exclusive Look: New Hunting Firearms & Ammo at OSG Roundtable

new hunting firearms

As the season starts, we found some great new hunting firearms and ammo.

Game & Fish Editor in Chief John Geiger recently attended the Outdoor Sportsman Group Roundtable, where he got an up-close look at some of the best new hunting firearms and ammo. Here are four items that stood out.


Ruger American

  • Folks love their Ruger Americans, which were at the forefront of the super-accurate, super-affordable movement a few years ago. One thing that bugged folks was the magazines, which were a bit flimsy. Ruger heard the feedback and has a new take on the mag well. These mags are AI-comparable, but they are not flush like previous American mags. But we think you will like them anyway.


Federal Premium Black Cloud TSS

  • Federal Premium had tremendous success with their TSS tungsten-alloy turkey load earlier this year, so they put it in a waterfowl load. BlackCloud TSS has their famous BlackCloud mix of shot plus TSS shot. It'll tear them up in a big way.


Hodgdon Powder Triple Seven FireStar Pellets

  • Anyone who uses a muzzleloader knows those cylindrical powder pellets. But Hodgdon has a clever new take on the shape. Wish I thought of that!


TriStar Viper G2 Bronze

  • There are precious few semi-auto .410s    Because it's so hard to get them to cycle various shells consistently. Remington did it in their 1100 series and now TriStar is trying to make a go of it as well with their Turkish imports. How did it go? Check out the video.
