> HUNTING SHOTSHELLS
A full range of buckshot in all sizes and quantities.
The two types of wad available are perfectly suited to every charge and guarantee the best-possible shot-pattern and the hunter's comfort.
Blind Side combines ground-breaking stacked Hex Steel Shot technology and the new diamond cut wad in the most deadly Winchester® waterfowl load available.
Loaded with 100% Hex Shot, you get more pellets on target, a larger kill zone and more trauma inducing pellets than ever before, meaning more fast kills.
Waterproof steel pellet shells
The line of Drylok shells was specifically designed to resist oxidation and corrosion, which are two inevitable facts of hunting in humid areas.
Developed in the United States, this steel shotshell is completely waterproof as the result of different innovations from Winchester®.
For all steel proofed shotguns (1320 bar)
The steel shot is first specially treated against corrosion: the star crimp is hot welded, its wad is also waterproof from its bipartite construction, and, lastly, the primer is varnished in order to prevent any humidity from entering.
The lead shot are completely encased in hardened resin.
When fired, the resin is smashed in to a fine, protective talc-like powder.
As there are no air pockets between the pellets, each one is protected as it accelerates down the barrel with no loss of shape through inertia.
And because each pellet is still perfectly round as it leaves the barrel, you can count on:
- A tight shot pattern even at long range
- Twice as many pellets on a 25cm target from 55 m
- 10% deeper penetration from 45 m than a conventional lead-shot cartridge.
Heavy loads and super heavy magnum
For the Double X® line of products, divided into 12, 12 Magnum and 20 Magnum with heavy loads, the shot pellets are copper-plated and loaded with a fine powder of composite materials (buffer), which prevents deformation for better ballistic quality.
