Remington announces new Wheelgun, HTP Copper rifle ammo lines (PHOTOS)

Outdoor powerhouse Remington came to the NRA show in Atlanta on Friday with two new ammunition series in multiple loads aimed at revolver aficionados and hunters.

The two new lines are the Performance Wheelgun— in eight different loadings in everything from an 88-grain .32 S&W to a 250-grain .45 Long Colt — and the High Terminal Performance (HTP) Copper series consisting of seven rifle loads from a 62-grain .223 to a 168-grain .308.

The Performance Wheelgun line uses Kleanbore primers and lead round nose bullets (except for lead semi-wad cutters in .357 caliber offerings) and is marketed as ideal for both target and competitive shooting in revolvers and lever-action rifles.

Ballistic gel on hand showed the rounds penetraing deep (over 20 inches) and expanding with four cutting petals to about double the bullet's diameter.
