SKU: HOR8047 Categories: ,

Opening day of deer season comes only once a year. Make sure you’re ready when the big one steps out and load-up with Hornady® American Whitetail® ammunition.

Loaded with our legendary Hornady® InterLock® bullets in weights that have been deer hunting favorites for decades, American Whitetail® ammunition combines generations of ballistics know-how with modern components and the technology you need to take the buck of a lifetime!


  • InterLock® Bullets
    • InterLock® bullets feature exposed lead tips for controlled expansion and hard-hitting terminal performance. Bullets used in American Whitetail® ammunition feature our pioneering secant ogive design and exclusive InterLock® ring — a raised ring inside the jacket that is embedded in the bullet’s core that keeps the core and jacket locked together during expansion to retain mass and energy.
  • Powders
    • Loaded to conventional velocities, powder is matched to each load for optimum pressure and consistency, ensuring each load is compatible with semi-autos as well.
  • Case and Primer
    • Like all Hornady® ammunition, our American Whitetail® rounds use the highest quality cases and primers available. Consistent components translate to consistent shooting in the field.
