Game & Fish was on hand at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas for the release of an impressive list of new ammunitionâ€”from the innovative Winchester AA Tracker shotshells to the CCI Quiet-22LR, a new sub-sonic cartridge that lives up to its name. Federal also introduced its new Fusion MSR ammo, which is specifically designed for the AR platform. When you pair the Fusion MSR ammo with the new Smith & Wesson’s M&P10 in .308 Win., you’ve got the ultimate whitetail rifle. We call that a winning combination. Be sure to check out all the newest ammo for 2013 with Game & Fish’s exclusive coverage from SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
"Part of the appeal of rimfire ammunition to high-volume shooters is the relatively low price. With the launch of the .17 Win. Super Mag., now hunters will get the downrange performance of a centerfire cartridge at the more affordable price point of traditional rimfire ammunition. It's the best of both worlds."
The new AA Tracker wad was built on the traditional AA platform but now features longer petals that are notched, creating a highly visible wad that functions much like a bullet or fletching on an arrow. When the wad comes out of the shotgun it spin-stabilizes, making it extremely accurate as it tracks in the center of your shot pattern. The AA Tracker shotshell will be available in black and orange wads for different visibility conditions. According to Winchester, the AA Tracker shotshell will run about $1 more per box than standard AA loads.
