Winchester Expands Blind Side Waterfowl Offerings for 2014

Winchester Ammunition has announced that it will expand its high velocity Blind Side waterfowl lineup for 2014, with new offerings coming in both 12- and 20-gauge.

Blind Side ammunition combines ground-breaking, stacked HEX Shot technology and the Diamond Cut Wad in the most deadly Winchester waterfowl load available. The HEX Shot pellets, shaped much like dice, stack together inside the shell, resulting in up to 15 percent more pellets in every shell.

Loaded with 100 percent HEX Shot, hunters get more pellets on target, a larger kill zone and more trauma-inducing pellets than ever before—meaning quick kill shots.

"Higher velocities mean shorter leads are necessary for fast-flying waterfowl," said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. "We want to give the consumer what they want, and that's why we're expanding this popular waterfowl load."

The new offerings will be available in the following gauges, shell lengths and shot sizes:
