The Best New Ammunition for 2014

Advancements in technology continue to shape every corner of the world, and ammunition is no different. Although empty spaces remain on retail shelves where an abundance of cartridges once appeared, the advancement of ammo technology has all but vanished.

The 2014 SHOT Show introduced us to a whole collection of new ammunition that's more advanced than ever.

Most ammo research and development is trending toward specialized loads for specific applications. For example, Winchester's new Win3Gun line of ammo was tailored for the growing number of 3-gun competitors, while a new 10mm round marks the first time Federal has offered a handgun load with a Trophy Bonded hunting bullet.

We also witnessed as Nosler introduced the fastest- and flattest-shooting commercially-available .264/6.5mm cartridge in the world — the 26 Nosler.

We're looking forward to reporting in-depth on the individual performance of all the newest ammo on the market.

For now, check out the best new ammunition for 2014, and tell us which ammo you want us to test in upcoming reviews.
