Franchi Momentum Elite Strata

Introduced in 2020, the Franchi Momentum Elite rifle family continues to grow with the introduction of three new chamberings and a new hunting camo pattern. New calibers include .300 Win. Mag., 6.5 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) and .350 Legend for state hunting regulations calling for straight-walled hunting cartridges. The newest camo pattern available is Sitka OPTIFADE Elevation II complimented by the Cobalt Cerakote barrel, receiver and bolt handle.

 The Momentum Elite rifle stock, patterned after the original Momentum’s revolutionary design combines raised curves and crisp checkering at strategic places along the rifle. This delivers an enhanced ergonomic feel and positive hold in the five most commonly used shooting positions. Sling-attachment points are recessed on the stock, eliminating the need for intrusive swivel studs. At the butt, Franchi’s popular TSA recoil pad absorbs up to 50 percent of the rifle’s felt recoil with integrated contours to offer more comfortable benchrest shooting positions.

The rifle’s RELIA Bolt features a one-piece, spiral-fluted bolt with three locking lugs for solid lockup to deliver increased accuracy. The Cerakoted bolt handle has a short, 60-degree throw for faster cycling and is easy to disassemble when cleaning. The Momentum Elite features a two-position safety, which allows the bolt to be operated when the rifle has been made safe. Franchi’s proprietary RELIA Trigger delvers a crisp break and can be adjusted from 2 to 4 pounds.

The Momentum Elite’s barrel is a cold-hammer-forged chrome-molybdenum with a matte finish and free floated for enhanced accuracy. The ends of the threaded-barrel configurations (5/8 x 24 thread) are protected by a muzzle break that reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise. Each rifle is topped with a one-piece picatinny rail and features a detachable magazine for quick and easy reloading.

With the right combination of choke and shot size, Buck Kicker produces a consistent pattern of choke and shot size. Buck Kicker produces a consistent 20- to 22-inch pattern at 40 yards with effective patterns out to 60 yards.

While performing well with all types of buckshot, copper-plated pellets will deliver the best results. Buck Kicker chokes are recommended for use with lead pellets only. Buck Kicker chokes are recommended based on shell and pellet size.

Buck Kickers are precision machined to high tolerance standards on computer controlled equipment. We use 17-4 PH Grade stainless steel in order to produce the best quality shotgun chokes on the market today.

Buck Kicker chokes feature a unique conical/parallel internal design and our exclusive outward-angled diagonal ports. These features improve pattern density by up to 20%. The extended ported section also makes follow-up shots faster and more accurate by reducing recoil and muzzle jump.
