First Look: New Hornady Ammo for 2014

First Look: New Hornady Ammo for 2014

Hornady has recently announced a handful of new ammunition offerings for 2014.

A completely new line of ammunition, known as Custom Lite, delivers the performance folks have come to expect from Hornady, but with reduced recoil and muzzle blast. The Custom Lite line of ammo includes several rifle calibers, as well as 12 and 20 gauge shotgun slugs.

Hornady's American Whitetail line of hunting ammo has expanded to include 12 gauge, 325-grain shotgun slugs.

Their Critical Duty line now includes .357 Sig with a 135-grain FlexLock bullet.


Hornady has also added a 20 gauge load to their Heavy Magnum Turkey line.


Check out the photos and video below, and look for these new offerings to be available in the first quarter of 2014.

Critical Duty 357 Sig

The newest member of Hornady's Critical Duty line includes 135-grain .357 Sig. The round features a FlexLock bullet with FlexTip technology, as well as low-flash propellants and nickel-plated cartridge cases with sealed primers and case mouths.

American Whitetail Shotgun Slugs

Also new for 2014 are American Whitetail Slugs. The 12 gauge, 325-grain slugs feature a hollow-point bullet with a serrated lead core and jacket for optimal expansion upon impact.

Custom Lite Rifle Ammo

Custom Lite rifle ammunition provides softer recoil and less muzzle blast from standard cartridges. The rounds are loaded with Hornady's SST or Interlock RN bullets, and continue to deliver the performance folks have come to expect from premium factory ammunition.

Custom Lite Shotgun Slugs

For a 25- to 40-percent reduction in felt recoil compared to standard slugs, try Hornady's new Custom Lite Slugs. Available in 12 and 20 gauge loads, Custom Lite Slugs feature FTX bullets, which remain effective out to 150 yards.

20 Gauge Heavy Magnum Turkey

Hornady's Heavy Magnum Turkey load is being expanded to fuel 20 gauge shotguns. 13/8-ounce, #5 nickel-plated lead shot is delivered in a tight pattern, with Hornady's Versatite wad. This new 20 gauge turkey load has a lethal range of 50 yards with 1200 feet-per-second muzzle velocity.
