Best New Hunting Ammo for 2015

Every year at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, ammo manufacturers jockey to introduce the next best line of ammunition infused with the newest technology that promises to perform better and more consistently. This year didn't just feature a healthy load of new ammunition offerings; there were also plenty of refinements to old favorites as well.

The obvious trend this year was the development of more game specific ammunition with propellent reconfigurations, new bullet designs and new caliber offerings. So whether you're hunting a 170-inch whitetail buck in Wisconsin or those pesky oinkers in the heart of Texas, there was something for you at SHOT.
