Winchester Ammunition revolutionized steel waterfowl ammunition with the launch of Blind Side, the most innovative steel waterfowl product in the company's history.
"Before Blind Side ammunition, waterfowl hunters could only dream of steel shot that approached the performance of lead. Now, it's a reality," said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing and sales. "Our engineers spent years developing Blind Side and we're taking it to the next level in 2012 by expanding the Blind Side line to offer more choices to hunters."
For 2012, Blind Side ammunition will be offered in the following gauges, shell lengths and shot sizes:
Gauge Shell Length Oz. Shot Velocity Shot Sizes
12 3 1/2" 1 5/8 1400 BB, 1, 2, 3
12 3" 1 3/8 1400 BB, 1, 2, 3, 5
12 2 3/4" 1 1/4 1400 2, 5
20 3" 1 1/16 1300 2, 5
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, literally 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. The shot is designed to hit waterfowl like high-velocity tumbling bricks - preventing over penetration and maximizing energy deposit and knock down shock within the bird.
With a company heritage dating back to 1866, Winchester Ammunition was there for the taming of the American West, the Allied Forces' victory in World War II and through the years, millions of fond memories made in the great outdoors. Known as The American Legend, Winchester is a global leader in sporting, law enforcement, military and personal defense ammunition production. Winchester continues to raise the bar with new products like Blind Side waterfowl and PDX1 Defender personal defense ammunition.
