Old Saybrook, CT (May 2012)- Traditions™ Performance Firearms, known for their extremely accurate and dependable muzzleloaders is honored to receive the Editor’s Choice Award for their Vortek™ Ultralight LDR from Petersen’s Hunting magazine.
The Editor’s Choice Award is grated by Petersen’s Hunting to manufacturers of products that meet specified qualifications by the editors after testing and evaluating industry products.
The Vortek Ultralight LDR is the ONLY 30″ barreled break-open muzzleloader on the market. The 30″ barrel provides you with a longer, more complete powder burn giving you better consistency, increased velocity, and downrange accuracy. With the Vortek Ultralight LDR, you will increase your velocity to 100-150 feet per second.
This rifle has a 30″ Ultralight Chromoly tapered and fluted barrel. Chromoly has long been recognized as the best barrel material for strength and accuracy. It also removes over a pound of weight from the barrel, eliminating the “muzzle heavy” feel like others on the market. Travel is easy with the LDR, as it weighs only 6.8 pounds! The LDR also features a Premium CeraKote Finish, which is 50 times more corrosion resistant than stainless steel. Additionally, the LDR features a drop-out trigger, allowing you to remove the entire trigger assembly and hammer by removing one screw. The LDR is equipped with Traditions Accelerator Breech Plug™, which removes in three turns by hand, allowing you to clean your muzzleloader, remove a load from the barrel, and makes for a more consistent ignition.
Tom Hall, President of Traditions Performance Firearms comments, “Receiving this award from such a well-regarded publication is truly an honor. Petersen’s Hunting is one of the most prominent hunting magazines in the industry today. A lot of hard work went in to the design and manufacturing of the Vortek Ultralight LDR and it is great to have this recognition. Having this muzzleloader backed by the editor of Petersen’s Hunting is extremely humbling”.
