2017 Woman's Innovation Product of the Year: Weatherby Vanguard Camilla
Twenty percent of hunters are female, so it can’t hurt to offer women a hunting rifle they can call their own. Weatherby’s Vanguard Camilla Rifle goes above and beyond the typical “color it pink and call it a girl’s gun.”
2017 Handgun of the Year: Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory
“Heavy,” “handgun” and “.22 LR” aren’t words that are usually strung together. But it is that weight, along with other features of the Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory, that makes this semi-automatic pistol so great.
2017 Gear of the Year: YETI Hopper Two Coolers

2017 Ammunition Product of the Year: Hornady Precision Hunter
Most modern bullets use polymer tips, but polymer melts at 320-345 degrees Fahrenheit, while bullets can reach temperatures greater than 800 degrees during flight. To counter this, Hornady created the ELD-X hunting bullet with its Heat Shield Tip, which sports a melting point above 700 degrees and degrades far less, making for a more accurate bullet with a higher ballistic coefficient. The company then loaded it in its Hornady Precision Hunter ammo line.
2017 Optic of the Year: Leupold VX-3i
Ron Spomer called the VX-3i an "ideal, do-anything scope." That's just part of the reason it's our 2017 "Optic of the Year."
2017 Shotgun of the Year: Remington V3 Field Sport
Remington's V3 Field Sport is our 2017 Shotgun of the Year.
