Winchester Announces Rooster XR

Winchester has given upland hunters what should be a popular new ammunition offering with the introduction of its new Rooster XR.

Featuring the same Shot-Lok Technology found in the company's already announced Long Beard XR, Rooster XR is designed to deliver more consistent and tighter patterns at longer ranges. It also produces deeper penetration and extreme knockdown power. The company crafted the load for upland hunters that expected to experience challenging shots in difficult conditions.

"Rooster XR is the most innovative Winchester pheasant load ever developed," said Brett Flaugher, vice president of sales, marketing and strategy for Winchester Ammunition. "We are thrilled to get this product in the hands of upland hunters, as they will immediately recognize a difference and instantly aspire to be successful, especially when challenging shots are taken into account."

Shot-Lok Technology is a hardened resin that eliminates air space around the pellets, preventing movement and ultimately leading to virtually no pellet deformation.

As the shot is fired, the resin fractures, forming a micro-buffer as the shot pattern leaves the gun barrel-the pellets remain round and fly straighter and tighter resulting in highly consistent payloads and devastating knockdown at longer ranges.

Shot-Lok Technology Features:

• Protects shot during in-bore acceleration
• Shot launches from barrel near perfectly round for extremely tight long-range patterns
• Greater penetration over standard lead loads beyond 50 yards
• Devastating terminal on-target performances
