Winchester's Bismuth brings to market a premium, uniform shot, which is tin-plated to produce smooth and round bismuth. To ensure the shot stays uniform and round, Winchester adds a buffering compound that fills voids within the shotshell and cushions the shot upon ignition.

At 40 yards, Winchester Bismuth promises to put 90 percent of the pattern on the target, while the two closest competitors demonstrate 66 percent and 54 percent. Hunters can also use any choke with Winchester Bismuth, and still expect good performance. Another important component of Winchester Bismuth is the Winchester Drylok Wad and primer system for those days that are not bluebird, but when the birds are flying all the same. The proprietary Drylok Wad System keeps powder dry for consistent and dependable ignition despite often damp waterfowl conditions.

The three-inch 12-gauge offerings will be loaded with 1 3/8 ounces of No. 4 shot for ducks, and No. 1 shot for decoying geese with a muzzle velocity of 1,450 fps. Bismuth 20-gauge is available in a three-inch with 1 1/8 ounces of No. 4 shot, traveling at 1,300 fps. All offerings will be available in 25-shell boxes.
