Winchester has expanded its popular Deer Season XP line. For 2016, three new calibers will be entering the fray: .30-30 Win., 7mm-08 and .300 Blackout.
“Due to the popularity of deer hunting and the number of deer hunters across the country, Deer Season XP was an instant hit in 2015,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. “The new caliber offerings were selected to serve a broader spectrum of today’s deer hunter.”
The deer-focused brand made waves upon its introduction last year, thanks to its new large-impact-diameter design, which expands immediately upon contact.
The number of hunters who pursue deer every season far exceeds the number of hunters for any other type of game. Last year, Winchester Ammunition stepped up to give these hunters a load built exclusively for the game they hunt. Deer Season XP was a huge hit as the deer-focused brand made ammunition selection simple and more affordable, while also delivering in-the-field performance. In 2016, Winchester is taking the line even further, adding three new calibers to the lineup.
Deer Season XP is now available in the following calibers:
• .30-30 Win.—150 grain
• 7mm-08—140 grain
• 300 Blackout—150-grain
• .243 Win.—95 grain
• .270 Win.—130 grain
• .270 WSM—130 grain
• 7mm Rem. Mag.—140 grain
• .308 Win.—150 grain
• .30-06 Springfield—150 grain
• .300 Win. Mag.—150 grain
