416 HUSHPUPPY

The .416 Hushpuppy is a proprietary cartridge offered with a AR upper by AM-TAC Precision and was announced at the 2014 SHOT show. The 416 Hushpuppy is claimed to have a maximum point blank range to 200yds on a man sized targets and creates a wound channel larger than 12ga 00 buck or a slug due to the yawing characteristics of the bullet when it encounters a soft target. The Hushpuppy is designed to be used with a suppressor. While it is definitely a funny looking round with an even more interesting name, the initial numbers that are being put out there by AM-TAC look promising. Ballistics is comparable with a 12ga shotgun in terms of the amount of energy dispersed and wound channel sectional data. The round is designed to be marketed to both Law Enforcement and the hunting community, and would make an ideal hog or predator round.
