guns_ammo_of_the_year_awards_2014_ammo_winchester_train_defend_FYou should train like you fight. The reality is that most people do not. Many who carry a handgun for protection are new to firearms, and proper ammo selection can be perplexing.

The Winchester Train & Defend ammo was chosen Ammo of the Year in the December 2014 issue of G&A. Subscribe here to print, digital or both!

The new Winchester Train (T) & Defend (D) line has ballistically matched affordable practice ammunition to dependable defense loads. Users can expect the same downrange performance and felt recoil impulse when switching between these carry and training rounds. T loads utilize brass cases and FMJ bullets, while D loads have nickel-plated cases and use a bonded JHP bullet. Retail price is $16 to $26.
