Ammunition has three purposes: It can help us defend ourselves and our loved ones in what Massad Ayoob describes as situations of the “gravest extreme,” it provides us with a means of efficiently taking game, and it allows us to develop our skills at both self-defense and hunting through competition and training. This year has seen a ton of new products introduced in this rapidly evolving arena of firearms technology, and we’ve gone to great lengths to round up the best new ammo available for your favorite weapons.
