2018’s best new hunting gear: Fantastic firearms and innovative ammo

Rifles, shotguns and loads for Canadian big game, small game, waterfowl and upland birds


Smoothbore deer hunters will want to check out this new 12-gauge 1¼-ounce slug. It features an innovative stabilizing wad that inserts through the slug so that both the slug and wad travel downrange as one, providing improved accuracy over standard Foster-style slugs. A velocity of 1,600 fps is promised.
