Winchester Deer Season Ammo

winchester deer season XP

Winchester Ammunition will introduce a new line of hunting ammo in 2015 called Deer Season XP. As the name suggests, Winchester designed this ammunition specifically for hunting deer.

The bullet used is a polymer tipped hollow point. According to the company, the tip is much larger than what is used in other loads from Winchester. The purpose of a larger tip is for more rapid and wider expansion than bullets with smaller polymer tips.

Winchester expects the ammo to sell around $25/box in the stores. It will be available in the following calibers:

  • .243 Win
  • .270 Win
  • .270 WSM
  • 7mm Rem Mag
  • .308 Win
  • .30-06 Sprg
  • .300 Win Mag
  • .300 WSM

    The larger polymer tip is intriguing, but I’d like to see some testing to verify that it creates greater expansion than similar ballistic tip bullets.
