SAAMI® Announces Acceptance of 360 Buckhammer

remington ammunition is proud to announce that the Sporting Guns and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) has announced the acceptance of the innovative 360 ​​Buckhammer as a new official cartridge.

  • Ultimate Straight Wall Cartridge
  • Accurate and deadly at 200 yards or more
  • Easy to fire with low recoil.
  • Better performance than 350 Legend or 30-30 Win.

  • Available in reliable Remington Core-Lokt; 180GR or 200GR
