Winchester has debuted its Super Pheasant Diamond Grade shotshell ammunition, bringing eight-percent antimony, copper-plated shot to the upland fields in a five-shot configuration.
Winchester’s new 350 Legend cartridge is a .223 case blown out to have straight walls, making it a perfectly viable choice for those states which require the use of a straight-walled rifle cartridge for deer hunting, and boasts an energy advantage of 120 ft.-lbs. over the veteran .30-30 Win., yet delivers less recoil than the old deer classic.
Hornady has added the classic .348 Winchester to its popular LEVERevolution line, using the 200-grain FTX bullet. With its proprietary Flex-Tip meplat, the FTX bullet is perfectly safe to use in the tubular magazine of the Model 71—and many other lever guns—yet offers the downrange benefit of a spitzer bullet.
Winchester’s all-new Deer Season slug utilizes a rear stabilized wad that travels downrange with the slug, separating upon impact. The combination results in greatly improved accuracy, as well as retained velocity to maximize energy downrange.
Waterfowl hunters have used the Winchester’s reliable Xpert steel loads for years, and the company adds to its famous line for 2019, introducing its new Xpert Snow Goose 12-gauge ammo, available in both 3- and 3½-inch shell lengths.
