Winchester Ammunition: Expedition Big Game

East Alton, IL based Winchester Ammunition let us know recently they have some new bullet technology for big game hunting.

Here’s what we know.

Winchester Ammunition: Expedition Big Game

Whether peering through your scope at a bull elk on a distant ridge in North America or preparing for a heart-pounding up-close stalk on a huge kudu in Africa, the world’s biggest game requires a bullet that can hold together upon impact no matter what the distance of the shot. With so much on the line during these challenging hunts, when it’s time to pull the trigger is not the time to wonder if your bullet is up to the task. To make ammunition selection simple for hunters, Winchester is launching Expedition Big Game in 2016.

From elk to brown bear, kudu to gemsbok, Expedition Big Game will include Accubond CT bullet technology—one of the most accurate and devastating bullets used on animals with tough hide and thick bone. Accubond CT bullets feature a polymer tip, bonded alloy lead core and Lubalox coating to deliver controlled expansion and deep penetration with every squeeze of the trigger.

Expedition Big Game will be available in:

• .270 Win. – 140 gr.
• .270 WSM – 140 gr.
• 7mm Rem. Magnum – 140 gr.
• 7mm WSM – 160 gr.
• .30-06 SPRG – 180 gr.
• 300 Win. Mag. – 180 gr.
• .300 WSM – 180 gr.
• .325 WSM – 200 gr.
• .338 Win. Mag. – 225 gr.
• .338 Lapua Mag. – 300 gr.

“Everything Winchester does, from bullet selection to packaging, is to make the hunter’s job of choosing the right ammunition easy and straightforward,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. “Loaded with the famed Accubond CT bullets, Expedition Big Game is sure to be as big a hit for big game hunters as Deer Season XP has been for deer hunters.”
