Old Saybrook, CT –-( Traditions Performance Firearms is honored to announce that they have received Field & Stream’s Best of the Best award 2012 in the muzzleloader category for the Vortek Ultralight LDR!

This is the third year in a row that Traditions has received this prestigious honor from the publication.

Put through rigorous testing, the experts made the point that “The two most appealing advantages of the 30-inch chromoly barrel on the Traditions Vortek Ultralight LDR (Long Distance Rifle) are its’ downrange energy and improved accuracy. This muzzleloader consistently shot the highest velocities, measured with a chronograph, with a number of different powders and bullets. It was as much as 300 fps faster than other rifles tested, all the while maintaining accuracy.”

Slaton White, editor of SHOT Business, also says, “The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest displaying absolute excellence in their field. The Best of the Best is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on gear and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money.”

Of the award, Traditions President Tom Hall comments “We are truly honored to be recognized by Field & Stream with the Best of the Best award for the Vortek Ultralight LDR. The LDR has all of the features and the performance necessary to meet the demands of using a muzzleloader for long distance shooting. We are proud to be the recipients of this distinguished award for the LDR but even more thrilled to receive this title 3 years in a row. This truly shows our commitment to bringing new products to the muzzleloading industry.”
