Winchester launches Xtended Range with Bismuth shot and Shot-Lok® Technology shotshells in 2018, a lead-free product that will be ideal for turkey, waterfowl and upland hunters across North America.
Winchester Xtended Range™ Bismuth pairs patented Shot-Lok Technology with Bismuth shot, resulting in optimum performance for turkey, waterfowl and upland hunting in areas that require lead-free shot. With density greater than steel, bismuth shot offers improved penetration that nears that of standard lead loads. Shot-Lok Technology is used to protect the bismuth shot from fracturing which improves pattern density and increases downrange energy. Xtended Range Bismuth puts twice the number of pellets in a 20-inch circle at 60 yards when compared to standard lead loads.
Xtended Range Bismuth will be available at retail this spring for approximately $35 for a box of 10.
“Winchester strives to provide consumers with the optimal ammunition for every hunting situation. Xtended Range Bismuth provides an affordably priced, high-performing turkey and waterfowl load for hunters across the country,” said Matt Campbell, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Winchester Ammunition.
