U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Remington Ammunition is proud to announce that The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) has announced the acceptance of the groundbreaking 360 Buckhammer as an official new cartridge.
“The acceptance of cartridges by SAAMI is crucial in the process of making new loads legitimate for American hunters and shooters,” said Remington Senior Director of Engineering Jared Kutney. “Whitetail hunters needed a straight wall cartridge that functions flawlessly in a lever action rifle, and we’re thrilled to have 360 Buckhammer accepted by the high standards set by the organization.”
360 Buckhammer’s key features include:
- Ultimate straight wall cartridge
- Accurate & deadly at 200 yards or more
- Easy to shoot with low recoil
- Better performance than 350 Legend or 30-30 Win.
- Muzzle velocity: 2,215-2,400 FPS

- Available in trusted Remington Core-Lokt; 180GR or 200GR
