Browning Announces BXD Extra Distance

posted on April 8, 2016

Browning's been on a roll the past year. It hasn't just been launching new products—it's been launching entirely new divisions. Browning crossbows are soon to be in the hands of consumers, and the company's new ammunition line is on the way, too. Most recently Browning Ammo announced the introduction of its new BXD Upland Extra Distance.

The new upland load launches nickel-plated lead shot at high velocities, and is designed to deliver premium performance. The nickel plating is crafted to keep the shot pellets round, for improved velocity retention and energy transfer. It should produce tighter downrange patterns, too. 

“BXD Upland ammo is built to maintain consistent, tight patterns. The nickel plating reduces shot deformation, maintaining higher velocity down range,” said Ben Frank, brand manager for Browning Ammunition. “Whether they are in close or flushing wild, BXD Upland provides you with what you need to bring them down.”

Offerings include:
• 12 ga 3” 1-5/8 oz #5 at 1350 FPS
• 12 ga 2-3/4” 1-3/8 oz #5 or #6 at 1485 FPS
• 20 ga 3” 1-1/4 oz #5 or #6 at 1250 FPS
• 20 ga 2-3/4” 1 oz #5 at 1300 FPS

BXD Upland Extra Distance is available now.
