Traditions NitroFire and the Federal Premium Firestick are winners of the 2021 Golden Bullseye Award for Muzzleloader of the Year.

The Golden Bullseye Awards, given by the National Rifle Association's American Hunter Magazine, acknowledges the finest products available in the shooting sports. This is the 19th year for the awards program.

"First and foremost, thank you to the NRA Publications for this incredible award," Tom Hall, Traditions Firearms President said in a news release. "We are truly honored to have the NitroFire and Firestick given the prestigious distinction of 2021 Muzzleloader of the Year. We are so proud of the NitroFire and Firestick system as well as our collaboration with Federal Premium and Hodgdon on a truly innovative product that has brought another element to the muzzleloading industry.

"The NitroFire and Firestick system provides a safer muzzleloading experience, which has always been a focus for Traditions, while also increasing reliability and accuracy. We recognize the strict criteria a product must meet to be considered for this award and are honored our product surpassed that."

Traditions has long been a leader in the muzzleloading industry, and continues to be on the forefront of innovation and focused on making muzzleloading safer, more accurate, and more reliable.

The NitroFire is the only muzzleloader on the market that uses the Firestick system by Federal Premium. The Firestick is an encapsulated polymer powder charge filled with Hodgdon Triple Eight powder. Simply load your bullet from the muzzle then insert the Firestick into the breech of the Traditions NitroFire rifle.

Winners will be honored at the 2021 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits scheduled Sept. 3-5, 2021 in Houston.
