Tru-Fire Introduces the Bulldog Foldback Buckle Release

True Fire BullDog release

SUPERIOR, Wis. (Aug. 15, 2017) — Tru-Fire, the leading archery release brand, has introduced the single-jaw Bulldog Foldback™ Buckle strap-style archery release. Like all Tru-Fire releases, the new Bulldog is made in the USA, and it features several patented Tru-Fire innovations and a wide range of adjustments. It  also fits both left- and right-handed archers.
The Bulldog’s hardened-steel single jaw provides versatility and allows it to be used on aluminum loops as well as string loops. Its ultra-smooth roller jaw is spring-loaded and works in unison with the trigger, so it automatically returns to the closed position when the trigger is released. The trigger travel is adjustable via a single Allen screw at the trigger’s base. The compact, machined-aluminum head is clear anodized for a corrosion-resistant natural finish, and it is length adjustable.
The Bulldog’s Foldback Buckle strap is comprised of high-strength nylon webbing sandwiched between two layers of felt for maximum comfort and sound absorption. A TrapTab™ at the end of the elastic portion of the strap and a clip integrated to the strap prevents it from completely opening when putting it on or taking it off. The patented Foldback Ring design allows the release’s head to be easily flipped back 180-degrees, where it stays in position against the buckle strap and tight to the archer’s arm to prevent the head from hitting anything while moving around the stand. The head can be flipped forward in an instant to engage the string loop.
The new Tru-Fire Bulldog release is available at retailers nationwide and conveniently online at www.trufire.com for a suggested retail price of $69.99.
About Tru-Fire
Headquartered in Superior, Wis., Tru-Fire is the world’s largest manufacturer of bowhunting releases, and all of its products are proudly made in the U.S.A.

The release is then live fired 2,000 times to evaluate component fatigue and string loop wear. All of this testing proves that your Tru-Fire release will be absolutely reliable the moment you need it most. For more information on the company or its products, write to: Tru-Fire, 101 Main Street, Superior, WI 54880; call 800-282-4868 or visit www.trufire.com.

Federal Premium Adds 6.5 Creedmoor to Trophy Copper Line

Federal Big Game bullet

ANOKA, Minnesota – August 2, 2017 – Federal Premium Ammunition is pleased to announce it has added a 120-grain 6.5 Creedmoor offering to its popular Trophy Copper lineup. The load combines the hottest cartridge in shooting with the proven Trophy Copper bullet to create one of the most effective hunting loads available. Shipments of this new ammunition are being delivered to dealers.

The 6.5 Creedmoor started out as a target round, but hunters have quickly adopted it for its long-range accuracy, ample power and manageable recoil. Trophy Copper makes the most of the platform, thanks to a copper, polymer-tipped bullet that retains 99 percent of its weight, penetrates deep and expands consistently. Its grooved shank increases accuracy across a wide range of firearms, and the nickel-plated case prevents corrosion and aids in easier, faster extraction. Trophy Copper is also available in 20 additional loads from 243 Win. to 338 Win. Magnum.

Features & Benefits
• 120-grain 6.5 Creedmoor load offers long-range accuracy, manageable recoil and ample power for medium and big game
• Copper construction provides up to 99 percent weight retention for the deepest penetration in an expanding bullet
• Tipped bullet cavity is optimized for expansion across a broad velocity range
• Grooved bullet shank for increased accuracy across a wide range of firearms
• Polymer tip and boat-tail design increase the ballistic coefficient for higher downrange velocity, energy and less bullet drop

P65CRDTC1 / 6.5 Creedmoor, 120-grain Trophy Copper / $47.95
