Based on the success of Winchester's innovative Blind Side waterfowl load, it should come as no surprise that the company is expanding the line. How? Namely by making it faster—quite a bit faster, actually. The new Winchester High Velocity Blind Side has a whopping factory-rated velocity of 1675 fps. Initial offerings will be 12-gauge only and include BB's, 1's, 2's and 6's in 3 1/2-inch, 1 3/8-ounce loads and 1's, 2's, 3's, and 6's in 3-inch, 1 1/8-ounce.
Additionally, a new Blind Side load is tailored to the needs of pheasant hunters in steel-only areas. The initial launch will include 2 3/4-inch, 1 1/4-ounce and 3-inch, 1 3/8-ounce 12-gauge loads in No. 5 shot. Both have a factory-rated muzzle velocity of 1400 fps.
