MORE FROM HuntStand

Selecting the best bullets for big-game hunting can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Are you looking for a do-all bullet? A non-toxic option? Maybe something special for your lever gun? Here are the 3 best bullet types from Federal Ammunition.

The Do-All Choice

Let’s start with a standout “do-all” bullet. Federal wanted to make the best hunting bullet it could, and so developed the Terminal Ascent. It’s a match-grade bullet that performs terminally. So it’s bonded, and it has a slipstream hollow tip. And so, at the end of the bullet’s velocity, it transfers that energy to the animal. In addition, there is an accu channel on the backside of the bullet that lends itself to accuracy. Overall, it’s a really accurate bullet, and the best bullet Federal makes for hunting.

Non-Toxic? No Problem

Maybe you’re hunting in an area where you have to shoot non-toxic ammunition. In that case, a great option is using copper. The Trophy Copper lineup from Federal is definitely one of the most-reputable copper bullets out there. The Trophy Copper design is inherently a very accurate bullet. In addition, you’re getting near 100-percent weight retention. It stays together. Terminally, that’s what you’re really looking for in a bullet.

Get More From Your Lever Gun

You say you shoot a lever gun? It’s time to check out the Federal HammerDown. What Federal did was make a chamfer on the rim of the cartridge, which offers ease of loading. These bullets have also been optimized for carbine length. In addition, Federal added its proven Fusion bullet into the HammerDown line. The result is really good weight retention and great expansion, as well as stellar transfer of energy.

In the end there are lots of great big-game bullet options out there. However, these 3 best bullet types from Federal are some of the finest you can find.
